Jessica Chastain: Robin Williams Changed My Life Through a College Scholarship

Jessica Chastain is opening up about the death of legendary actor Robin Williams and how he changed her life by funding a scholarship that she received to attend college.

Robin Williams changed my life. He was a great actor and a generous person. Through a scholarship, he made it possible for me to graduate college. His generous spirit will forever inspire me to support others as he supported me. He will forever be missed,” the Oscar-nominated actress wrote on her Facebook account.

In a previous interview, Jessica said that Robin‘s funding “paid for my schooling, back and forth to go home for Christmas, books, everything. He actually made it possible for me to go to school there because my family were not incredibly wealthy and I was the first one to go to college.”

When talking about it over the last few years, Jessica said that she never had the chance to personally thank him for his generosity. One time he sat next to her at a restaurant, but before she had a chance to talk to him, he ended up leaving and she didn’t want to run after him.

We surely hope you got the chance to meet him, Jessica!
