Stunned. Speechless.

I'm completely gutted. Along with Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks, he was my favorite actor. I loved all of his movies, and while I didn't love all of his standup, a lot of it did make me laugh.

I also echo The Charlie Rose Show. It was wonderful when he was on there, it was so funny.

RIP.

It also needs to be said that anybody can suffer from depression. If you know somebody who does, please, get them help.

I'm stunned and saddened by this. One of my earliest TV memories was Robin on Mork and Mindy saying "nanoo nanoo." I love him in Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, and especially in Good Will Hunting. I went on a movie tour in Boston and the guide said that Robin Williams was a great guy and would talk to the locals at the L Street Tavern (one of the filming locations) during the filming of Good Will Hunting. As outrageous as he could be promoting a movie on a talk show, he sure was hilarious. I get the impression he was a down-to-earth guy in his private life even if he appeared larger than life publicly. He had a great career, and I think most people can appreciate at least one of his films or TV shows. It's too bad he was unable to conquer his demons despite numerous attempts to do so, and may he RIP.

Sad that he is dead. Even worse that he is so selfish to take his own life. I feel bad for his family.

Also, I learned about this not even an hour ago and I'm already sick of hearing about it. Couldn't stand his comedy

Robin was one of the funniest comedians ever.

He will be sadly missed.

R.I.P.

RIP. He was in one of my favorite ensemble comedies, "Club Paradise"( directed by Harold Ramis, RIP) which also featured the great SCTV cast. Robin Williams was probably even more talented in dramas, "One Hour Photo" and "Insomnia" were two films where he was brilliant in portraying creepy and disturbed characters. He did Law and Order SVU which was in the same vein, he could really bring out his dark side. Brilliant acting. I think he needed to do more of that.
He did a guest spot on SCTV where he played a gay Leo Gorcey in a Bowery Boys spoof which was hilarious. Very talented with a great range, its a shame.

I've always been aware that many comedians battle personal demons and depression is one of the worst.

Stupidest post ever and poster should be embarrassed to come out of a 6+ month hibernation just to post it.

If you think money ends all problems you're wrong, it does just the opposite.

In fact many times it's just the beginning.

You don't become immune to depression because you're wealthy.

Money has no soul and no emotion, and those who desire money above anything else will do themselves no favor by worshiping it.

Set for life? Financially. Which doesn't matter one iota if you don't have your health.

R.I.P. Mr. Williams.
