Robin Williams has died at 63

Aug. 11, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

Some devastating news to report here, legendary actor Robin Williams has died at 63 years of age. He died this morning and while his publicist wouldn’t confirm the cause of death, they did issue this statement:

Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

More details are coming forward including the report that the comedian took his own life. Authorities found an unresponsive William's in his home. Williams went back to rehab last month to focus on his sobriety.  

As more details surface tonight and likely throughout the next few weeks about William’s death, I would just like to take a moment to touch on the man’s legacy. I wouldn’t want to leave this post without mentioning the influence he had on my own life. Besides my father, Williams was the next man to make me laugh and make we want to entertain people. I was just talking with a friend this past week about HOOK and how great of a movie that was for Williams. You will have to excuse my tangents here, this doesn't seem real to me at all.

Take a moment with us tonight to reminisce about the great roles of his career and the pleasure we got from watching him. Please share your memories below; I've included some videos as well.

Our thoughts on this very sad day are with his family and friends.

We just finished watching "What Dreams May Come" which seemed extremely apt, and which becomes very poignant and upsetting in light of recent events.

However if someone is looking for a justifiable reason for his demise, it's almost outright described here with at least a glimmer of optimism attached.

I have never been one to become emotional over the passing of a celebrity, but Robin Williams has been an idol of mine since I was 12 years old watching him on "Mork & Mindy". The more I read and the more I see, the more difficult it is not to cry.

Fuck this one hurts...

From seeing him as a child on Mork & Mindy reruns, to Aladdin and Jumanji, to his more serious roles in The Fisher King, Good Will Hunting and Insomnia. Such a talented and funny individual. You will be missed Robin. May you now be at peace.

There have been a lot of people talking about Robin Williams' death. A lot are saying that a piece of their childhood has died with him. I disagree. I think because of Robin Williams, a piece of my childhood will never die.

Thank you Mr. Williams. Much appreciated.

I haven't cried this much over anybody in a while.

I rewatched Hook last night and about broke down at his last line "To live would be an awfully big adventure".
I sure as shit can't get through Popeye right now.

A friend of mine read the news on his smartphone last night, and I promptly forgot about it. It's that surreal to me. Talk about someone who seemed to live life a little more fully than the rest of us. His energy could be difficult to match. His voice-work inspired a young me to practice different accents (I still do it, mostly for kicks now), and this man could do drama just as well. He wasn't always used well in movies, but because he was Robin Williams, I never blamed him for the film's

He wasn't always used well in movies, but because he was Robin Williams, I never blamed him for the film's quality. Knowing he had demons, which he was fairly open about in later years, makes this feel on one level less shocking, but no less tragic. Every generation has a few great comic legends. This guy more than makes the cut.

R.I.P Legend

What a talent. How any more fabulous actors must we lose in circumstances like this? I'm only old enough to have seen in the last few years the likes of Ledger, Murphy, Walker & now Williams - all people who didn't deserve to go out like this. I does make you wonder what Hollywood does to some of these guys. I know Walker was a car accident but looking back through time you see even more Pheonix, Belushi, Candy. It's heartbreaking to see such amazing talent go like this. I remember growing up

He set the bar as far as I'm concerned and made a real family fun films. I will always have the utmost admiration for him after I read that he took in Christopher Reeve's kids after both their parents died. What a tragedy.

I've been trying to find the right words for this, but I just can't. This really fucking sucks. I've never seen someone who, on the surface, at least, was so energetic and full of life. The man was lightning in a bottle. My condolences goes out to his family and friends.

Such a sad day. I loved his comedy but I always felt that he was a solid dramatic actor more so. The best of Robin's work IMO was Bicentennial Man, What Dreams May Come & Good Will Hunting. His performances always tugged at my heart strings and were always inspiring. I will absolutely miss his genuine acting and 110% that he always gave on screen. The world will miss you.

This one hit me really hard. I am still in shock. He brought so much joy to my family & I for so many years. I just can't believe he's no longer physically with us. I think the worst part for me is if he truly did take his own life. It just deeply saddens me that someone who brings so much joy and happiness into others lives, struggles to find that in their own life.
There are no words. I am deeply saddened and in shock. See you on the other side. "A whole human life is just a heartbeat here

What can I say that hasn't been said? Williams was one of the greatest entertainers of his or any other generation. I grew up on his acting and comedy and have always considered him one of the most versatile actors around. He made me laugh beyond words in movies like Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire, and brought me to tears in Jakob The Liar. It's easy to point to his Oscar-turn in Good Will Hunting or his comedic/dramatic tightrope performance in Good Morning Vietnam, but Jakob The Liar is an

To his family, thank you for sharing him with us. Grieve peacefully as you need, but be sure to look back at all the good Robin did and all the hearts he's touched.

A talented man and a gifted comic gone too soon...

I know everything I'm about to say is a complete cliche. However, I keep thinking about the utter despair he must have felt to make the choice to take his own life. Sometimes it takes the death of a beloved figure like Williams to remind us that many people deal with this kind of pain everyday. While it may be easy to look at a suicide and be furious that these people are "taking the easy way out", remember that if we could walk a mile in someone else's shoes, we may not be so quick to judge

It truly breaks my heart that Williams and so many like him, felt that this was the only path they had in front of them.
RIP Mr. Williams. Thank you for all the joy you brought into my life and the lives of so many others. The world is now a little less without you...

All I can say is that this news has cut me deep down to when I was a young boy watching mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, and his bits on Comic Relief and laughing loudly. Normally celeb deaths don't effect me that much, but this is an exception. This hurts my heart and soul. Depression is no joke. Much love to you Mr. Williams and to your family. ...damn this just sucks.

I feel bad for J.J. Murphy. He is today's Farrah Fawcett.

Robin was always so full of life and joy that I saw him as a magical being. You know, like a genie. Even the Dead Poets Society will read his stand-up comedy routines and admire his way with words. The sadness I feel will turn into insomnia tonight. To him I say "R.I.P. and nanu-nanu".

Oh My Dearest Friend...

Thank you for the many, many, happy years where you had me damn near split a gut laughing so very hard at your antics. Hours I've spent, in my life, welling up in tears at your goofiness, that I dearly loved. Hell, I think I've stolen so many of your one liners and zingers that I probably should be paying you royalties.

May God show you as much mercy, as you've shown his world laughter!

What a tragedy.

Robin Williams is a legend. There has never been and will never be a personality like his again, and this is something that will affect millions around the globe. So many of us have memories of growing up with him. There were few movies that I watched more as a child than Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Hook, and Jumanji. I hope that he found the peace that he was looking for.

A complete shock, this is a great loss to the world of comedy. Robin Williams was energetic, sharp, funny and very charismatic. He may have indulged his sentimental side too often, but nobody can say that he wasn't capable of truly affecting performances in addition to being a comedian who defined the art form. I certainly would love to have seen him take on more roles like in Insomnia or One Hour Photo. RIP.

No. I grew up watching this man, from Mork and Mindy to the Museum movies. He was to me, a childhood favorite. When I met him, he was as every bit as funny as I expected him to be and he made my day by just being a all around nice guy. This is really sad news. I will miss him.

Now that the shock value has subsided this is absolutely tragic. It's one thing when it's someone like Roger Ebert because no matter how great a loss it doesn't come out of no ware. With this it's just sad because it's way too early. I love him as much as the next guy and I've seen him a lot this summer watching One Hour Photo, Worlds Greatest Dad and a Stand Up special.

My brother and I bumped into him in a corner store in NYC many years ago. The three of us chatted it up for quite a few minutes before he shook our hands as we left. He was so genuine it was hard to believe we were talking to anyone other than an average joe with a big beard and camouflage shorts on. What an amazing guy. He'll be missed...

I can't say that I'm shocked, though it sounds like the reasoning is shocking, but he had some heart issues recently so my assumption went to that before reading the statement.
He was my favorite comedian and was an amazing human being. I'm sad to see him go

I'm completely shocked. Robin Williams was always such a great presence on screen. While he was known for his family-friendly work, he was equally brilliant in his darker,edgier fare (World's Greatest Dad and One Hour Photo). Depression is such a bitch of a killer.

The man was a chaotic symphony offers j funny. But at the same time can reserve himself into dramatic greatness. He was a perfect double sided coin, a man with two equally great faces. He can make you cry and laugh at the same time. He is an hero to aspiring performers of all types.

There is a story I heard, I don't know if it is true or not but its one of the reasons I admired him and made me drop out of acting school to actually persue it. He was a student of dramatic arts at Juliard. His

There is a story I heard, I don't know if it is true or not but its one of the reasons I admired him and made me drop out of acting school to actually persue it. He was a student of dramatic arts at Juliard. His teacher asked him to drop out of school for being too funny, encouraging him to persue comedy and that structured school was holding him back. The rest is history. What happens when the top art school in the country tells you you are too talented? It is a sad day and I am actually tearing up thinking of all the great moments Robin Williams gave me on through his films. Good Will Hunting, Fisher King, What Dreams May Come, Hook. And being so crazy that Disney had to animate his improve. We all wanted Mrs Doubtfire to be our babysitter and imagined him as Roosevelt riding up San Juan Hill. From Mork and Mindy to the grossly under rated Crazy Ones, Robin Williams had one of the brightest careers that will lice on forever, even though this giant is gone.

RIP Robin Williams, one of my heroes

I heally hope it wasn't suicide, I think tgat is one of the most selfish acts a person can commit I've been battling depression for as long as I can remember, and I often contemplate "what if" death scenerios for myself, and even though it feels like that would be easier sometimes, I know it's the cowards way out. He is easily one of my all time top favorites, I really hope he didn't do this to himself. RIP brother

Dude save your rants for somewhere else. Even if it turns out to be suicide, who are you to declare him a coward? Show some respect. He was obviously dealing with a lot. I don't understand where the word selfish comes from.

Suicide and mental health issues are a lot more complicated than you're making them. It's thinking like yours that creates a stigma around those living with mental health issues. The fact of the matter is you have no idea what all the circumstances are in this case. It's never black and white.

I'm not going to sit here and debate suicide with you two. I've stated my feelings towards it, nothing more to add. I've had more than enough experience depression and almost lost a brother (failed attempt). So please do not presume to lecture me on what I dont know. And bhak88, how exactly is stating my feelings a rant?

For a Monday, my day was going okay. This news subsequently made it one of the worst Mondays I've ever experienced.

I remember the worst monday I ever experienced. It was 5 years ago. my father called to informed me that mother had passed away. He was crying, something he never does, and just kept saying "she's gone, she's gone...."
But yeah, Robin Williams, man...that blows.

There are no words

Such a sad day. I always think of the scene im Good Will Hunting where he talks about how his wife used to fart. In one scene, which was mostly improvised, Williams made you laugh and tugged at your heart strings at the same time.
Today officially sucks, we've lost a great one fellas.

This is such terrible news. He was brilliant and always delivered with every one of his performances and films. The man has delivered many, countless performances, but I will always remember him for Good Will Hunting, and Dead Poets Society since those were the two films that I saw that made me really notice his talent.

Very sad day. RIP to Mr. Williams and prayers out to his family and friends. Throughly. I'm sure he'll be making everyone in Heaven laugh a little harder now.

Damnit

This absolutely sucks! I was hoping for him to get out of his rut and return to doing what he does best. Rest in peace, Mr. Williams.

Terrible

This is devastating news. He was one of the first comedians I discovered and I've seen so many of his movies and standup routines. I hope his family gets the privacy they've requested. I also hope they know how loved he was for his acting and comedy.

What a tragedy to a brilliant comedian. For someone who provided so much happiness to others through comedy, he wasn't able to see happiness in his own life.

RIP

I'm there nowlike right there. It's so damn sad. I've met him two or three times at various events in the bay area. We both had heart surgery at the same time, our cardiologists both consulted with each other on our cases, so we shared a true bond. I'm so damn sad right now.

Wow. Absolutely stunned. This guy was a Giant in the industry. So so sad for him to go out like that. Sometimes the funniest people are the saddest. Take care Mr Williams. Wherever you are. I hope you are happier. :(
