A Tribute to Robin Williams

A week ago, the world lost Robin Williams, a hilarious comic genius who made the whole world laugh. He was admired and beloved by all his fans, who are all very sad now. He managed to make the whole world happy, but apparently not himself. Robin committed suicide because he was in deep depression. On August 12, a day after he was found dead, a police officer confirmed that Williams had hanged himself with a belt.He may have had a great time onstage, but behind the screen his life was completely different. He was very sick and he was depressed, so I guess he killed himself.

I have not seen all of his well-known films but I have seen many of them. My favorite is Mrs. Doubtfire, a comedy about an actor (played by Robin Williams) disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. That movie seriously cracked me up! It’s one of my favorite comedies! Also, he really rocked as the Genie in Aladdin. The movie itself was OK but the Genie stole the whole show! I’ve heard about many other of his great movies, like Good Will Hunting and Good Morning Vietnam. I haven’t seen those ones yet but now I plan to. Robin Williams was definitely one of the funniest actors I know and he will always be remembered, along with his movies and his roles.

  2. My dear Gal,
    I am delighted that you were so deeply touched by the death of Robin Williams, so much so that you decided to write him a tribute. I also have great memories of his wonderful movies. He was not just an amazing comedian but also a serious, profound and moving actor of dramas. From what has been published, he took his own life due to a very long lasting ediction to drugs and alcohol. As you can see over and over again, show business seems flashy and glowing from the outside, but in reality it is cruel, demanding, frustrating and stressful.
    With love,
    Dvora
