    Unfortunately a lot of comedians tend to be depressed. They try to hide it through laughter.

    Come on Jared! You CANNOT forget Hook and Jumanji, these are like CLASSICS! Well…. at least in my book. They pretty much made my childhood. Robin Williams made my childhood with movies like these two and Aladdin and Mrs Doubtfire. Ugh, I can’t believe he’s gone =( May he rest in peace. We’ve lost such a wonderfully gifted comedian. It’s amazing how true it is that the saddest people are often the ones who smile and laugh a lot. I’m heartbroken. One of my idols has passed away. I’m going to watch Mrs Doubtfire, Hook and Jumanji a thousand times as of right now in loving memory <3
