    The world was just too ugly for him. Everything we see and hear now is all just so ugly and horrifying. The world is BROKEN.

    We didnt deserve him. He was abused and taken for granted plain and simple. Nobody deny it.

    Oh this hurts so much….

    Suicide ( if this is the case) is not about the world being broken, but the person being broken. He suffered from depression and alcoholism for many years. Even people who do get help, sometimes came endure the journey. RIP, a very creative human being.

    He’s finally out, he’s finally free, I cannot feel sad…

    That’s nonsense. Life is tough. I liked his movies. But…He had it EASY. He was worth $50 million??. Had the love of so many. He abused his mind and body. It’s ridiculous you are blaming the world for this. He was one of the last people on Earth who had a hard life.

    Perhaps you should get some perspective on how easy celebrities have it. Perhaps THEY should too. Some people would be so grateful for just a chance at life. Others have EVERYTHING and it’s not good enough.

    ….$50 million rotting in a bank= depression……

    ….$50 million HAND DELIVERED to help untold numbers live another day= filling your soul with so much love that you can’t wait to wake up tommorrow because you are so eager to see how good you can make someone ELSE feel tommorrow.

    Money, popularity, fame and fortune doesn’t make one happy. Robin is one of the many who “had it all.” There was obviously something deep inside of him that never healed. If someone could have knoreached out to him in time……..

    @Lena: Lena -

    I agree w/you.

    When you can hang yourself in a 35 million dollar house, your life isn’t bad.

    He was one of SEVEN who got into Julliard one year. He was a WHITE, MALE in an industry that only thinks WHITE, MALES matter.

    What the frak did he have to be unhappy about.

    An amazing actor who made me laugh from childhood to now. Not to mention he was a brillaint stand up comic and dramatic lead as well.
    So multi talented and unique. I think of the actors and pretty boys who ate hailed as being brilliant that don’t even come close to him in talent and execution of craft.
    He is one of the few who know how to entertain and draw the crowd not based on looks but real true ability.
    In an increasingly superficial world this is a really sad that he did not feel supported or valued enough to stay….

    I think what some people are failing to see is that money, power, popularity, or celebrity does not mean anything to someone who is depressed. They don’t choose to be depressed, it is a real illness in which your brain is chemically off-balance. A person suffering from depression can be delivered news that can be extremely life changing to most (i.e winning the lottery) & the most tragic news and respond the exact same way.

    I too used to think that it was just dramatics, and how could you be so unhappy. However, once a friend of mine suffered from this disease and I did my research my eyes opened to a ton that i never knew.

    May Robin Williams, one of the most talented & beautiful persons rest in peace.
