My fav movie Bicentenial Man Besides Powder

Beloved actor Robin Williams was found dead on Monday, police reported.

He was 63.

The apparent cause of death was suicide by asphyxiation, authorities said. According to his publicist, Williams had been battling severe depression.

Williams was best known for his starring roles in classic comedies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning, Vietnam and Jumanji, but also in dramas like Dead Poets Society. He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Dr. Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting. He rose to fame while playing Mork the alien in the TV show Mork & Mindy, a Happy Days spinoff.

Most recently, Williams had starred in the new CBS sitcom ‘The Crazy Ones.’ It was cancelled after just one season. At his time of death, a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire was in the works.

Susan Schneider, the actor’s wife, released the following statement to the New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff:

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions. #robinwilliams #funny #comedian #bicentenialman

Don’t usually post sad news on this medium but I must say that:

Disney will never make another movie as special as #aladdin with a soul like #robinwilliams RIP funny man.

We need more studies on depression and how to attack it from a more natural angle.

I remember singing “a whole new world” at my JR High graduation almost 20 years ago. The World is smaller than you think and laughter is universal.
