    Man, that's terrible. Good thoughts going to his family and friends.

    Not to get too serious or jump to conclusions but if you know someone that has a problem with drugs or alcohol or depression, try to get them help.

    This is very sad news and i can relate to it as i too have had periods of bad depression, the last of which was last Xmas, i think it's an illness that is very hard to understand unless you have gone or are going through it, you cannot just snap out of it and when people say those things to you it can make matters worse.

    Robin Williams was a fabulous comedian, i laughed out loud at some of his live shows, he was also a very good actor and by all accounts a nice human being, in what is sometimes a cutthroat business with some nasty people, he was one of the good guys, he will be missed.

    Can't believe it. An apparent suicide according to news. What a sad end to a great talent.

    Very, very sad. He was brilliant, very funny and certainly brought a lot of joy into my life with just about anything he did !

    RIP Robin Williams - you will be missed

    I read an interview with him years ago where he openly spoke about his upbringing and social anxiety that led to depression. I truly believe his personal life was very different from his public life.

    Grew up with this guy -- from the time of Mork and Mindy to his move to the big screen. This is one shit-ton of difficult to take.

    I want a do-over for this day. And this part doesn't happen.

    I can't imagine my childhood or early teen years without Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji or The Birdcage. This is just shocking. I wonder how Bobcat Goldthwait, who directed him in World's Greatest Dad, which had been one of the funniest comedies he had made in years by that time, must be feeling right now.

    Shocking and sad news.

    I wish he had done some more serious roles.

    R.I.P., man.

    The passing of Robin is huge to me. I am so incredibly saddened by this. Thank you Robin, for all the joy you brought me.

    Just watching others watching and laughing at Williams was something special.

    Another comedy hero of mine gone. Like Jonathan Winters, Walter Matthau and so many other greats. Endless list.

    If there is life after death it's a funny place.

    RIP

    I remember reading about how, after harrowing Schindler's List shooting days, an extremely-depressed Spielberg would call Williams from Poland.

    He'd ask him to do comedy bits over the phone to cheer him up. Spielberg percieved Williams as the only person that could pull him out of the abyss.

    Incredibly shocking news. He was a terrific comedian but I thought he was just as great in dramas like INSOMNIA or the black(er) comedy WORLDS GREATEST DAD.
