Per Nikki Finke moments ago: Academy Award winner Robin Williams
whose inventive comedic talent made him a star of both movies and
television has died in his Tiburon, California. He was 63. Studio
sources tell me he may have taken his own life.August 11, 2014 at 4:03 pm #157962
TMZ: He killed himself.
Robin Williams has committed suicide. The comedian killed himself in Tiburon, in Northern California.
According to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, authorities found William’s body inside his home. They say he was found unresponsive. He was unconscious and not breating and the coroner suspects suicide due to asphyxia. Williams went back to rehab last month to focus on his sobriety. We’re told alcohol was an issue.
Williams struggled with cocaine and alcohol abuse in the early 80s but was sober for 20 years.

This really is sad. He really was a genius in my eyes. Though he didn’t always choose the best projects, few people have contributed as much to film as he had. Garp, Good Morning Vitenam, Dead Poets, Mrs. DOubtfire, Good Will Hunting–all truly great films. And he deserved nominations for Insomnia and One Hour Photo. I think the world has really lost a true original.August 11, 2014 at 4:20 pm #157964
R.I.P. Robin Williams.
He will always be the best part of the Night at the Museum movies as Theodore Roosevelt.

I met him once at a casino near where I lived. He seemed very quiet and shy actually though he did pose for a photo with me. Extremely funny man in a live show!August 11, 2014 at 4:21 pm #157966
RIP Robin Williams. One truly great artist and my all time favourite actor.August 11, 2014 at 4:25 pm #157967
This is horrific news. Oh God.August 11, 2014 at 4:26 pm #157968
R.I.P Williams, a Titan!August 11, 2014 at 4:28 pm #157969
So sad. RIP, Mr. Williams.
My first movie I saw of him was Mrs. Doubtfire, and it’s still one of the few movies that I frequently revisit. A great loss.August 11, 2014 at 4:40 pm #157970
Sad news. Big fan of Mrs Doubtfire. It was on TV so much that I saw it a lot. I also watched Toys a lot too. So strange and weird. Then I saw his more dramatic work in The World According to Garp, Good Morning Vietnam and all his Oscsr nominated roles. Comic Relief. His appearances on Letterman.August 11, 2014 at 4:41 pm #157971
We’ve lost one of the greats, RIP 🙁August 11, 2014 at 4:43 pm #157972
30 minutes later and I still can’t believe it. I’m going to miss this brilliant man.
