This fucking sucks...

While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.” - EW

RIP :(

*Update* Suicide seems to be all but confirmed at this point, but I hold off on changing the title until it is confirmed. I think it needs to be said however that if you have something to say in regards to suicide and depression, then please do it in the NUMEROUS other threads as of late about these issues. This thread is to honor and pay respects to Robin Williams and with this, as with life, if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.

Suicide has been confirmed as the cause of death :(

Press Release by William's wife:

"Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child -- Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid.

Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.

It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid."

I loved his stand up comedy acts and his movies.......It's sad to lose such talent.

Feel bad about hearing how depressed he was since he was sometimes the cure of my own depression.

So many know him only for his comedy and often sporadic humor, but he was a fantastic drama actor.

Makes you think about what the guy was missing in his life that drove himself to take it. Mrs. Doubtfire was the best!

Oh crap, seriously didn't see this thread before my suicide thread.

RIP Robin Williams

Suicide is unreal, literally who can say how it feels. Pray for his family and the ones he left behind.

That 24 hour news cycle can be a real bitch. You will be missed Mr. Williams. Thanks for the large part of my childhood that was Aladdin and Hook.

So fucked up. Robin Williams is one of those actors and people that I really looked up to. Couldn't help but shed tears, he was an absolutely AWESOME guy and one of the best comedians. I'm absolutely floored. He's one of those people that you don't have to meet for him to have a profound effect on you.

Damn. This just goes to show you that nothing external to a person can make them happy. Robin was famous, wealthy, and had a loving family (I'm assuming), yet he still committed suicide. We, as Human beings, have to find happiness within ourselves.

I never saw any of the things he did. Honestly I've only heard of him on TV and stuff. People loved him, and they had the right to do so.

R.I.P Robin Williams. You will be missed. Thank you.

Jesus! What a shame, RIP. One of the few comedians that can actually improv on point without breaking a sweat!

You'll be miss good man. Thanks for all the laughs.

This is really messing with my head. I watched Hook yesterday, and earlier today I watched Aladdin, now I find out Robin Williams is dead... I think this one will take some time to process...

I'm legitimately upset. I thought he was one of the best comedic actors/voice actors of all time. And then there is his performance in One Hour Photo. My lord.

And his love for Evangelion.

Damn. DAMN. What news to wake up to. I would never have imagined. I knew he struggled with addiction, but didn't know he suffered from depression. What a painful and shocking loss this is.

Thanks for the laughs, RW. Rest easy.
