“His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of “genius,” Chris said in a statement about Robin‘s death. “We were friends for 21 years. Our children grew up together, he inspired us to spend our lives in San Francisco and I loved him like a brother. The world was a better place with Robin in it. And his beautiful legacy will live on forever.”

    Must have been hard.. to be suffering inside while having to go out and be funny all the time because that’s what people wanted/expected..

    @essie: This statement is just heartbreaking. I completely agree. To be so sad and depressed on the inside, having people rely on you for laughter and not being able to share your own pain is truly gut-wrenching. It just goes to show you Robin was always thinking of other people besides himself–which is not necessarily a good thing. You have to make sure you’re happy and healthy yourself. If you’re not, talk to someone–anyone–who could help you through your turmoil. Nobody deserves to suffer on their own.

    BTW, with regards to the future of Mrs. Doubtfire 2; cancelling plans of production seems like a no-brainer. Robin Williams was the heart and soul of that movie. He made that character and classic what it is. Without him, you just have another movie.

    This sucks on so many emotional levels. I was really looking forward to seeing Robin William reprise his role for old times sake. #NothingBeatsThe90s :’(

    Who cares? Robin williams died man, Hollywood is so heartless.

  • Jamie

    I think it would be shameful to make the movie without him. I wouldn’t see it as any sort of tribute but only profiting off a dead man’s legacy. May he rest in peace and leave the Doubtfire legacy to one movie.

    I couldn’t agree more.

    I don’t think I ever cried harder about a celebrity passing away. I absolutely love Robin Williams. I grew up watching Mork & Mindy… I remember watching it when I was three years old. He was favorite actor of all time. He was a great comedic but even better, in my opinion, at serious roles and definitely changed the way I saw things in life in some of those roles. I am so sad to hear he passed away.

    “What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference.” – Patch Adams

    Oh Hollywood. This sequel SHOULD not happen even when Mr. Williams was still alive ( I am still in shock). But now, when he passed away all you think is about silly sequels?

  • Courtney

    anyway to make a quick dollar that’s all Hollywood ever cared about. look how Disney/Pixar still made cars 2 after the deaths George Carlin and Paul Newman just adding several new characters to fill the void. comedians are often the most emotionally damaged among entertainers the idea of a sequel to Mrs Doubtfire was wrong even when Mr Williams was alive

    It is for the best as It just wouldn’t be the same without him. R.I.P Robin
