Robin Williams

Category: Life

There are lots of stories in which celebrities are… unkind. Robin Williams wasn’t that sort of celebrity. I met him once, outside of the Late Show, it was only a few seconds. We were both going into the side-entrance, both of us guests in very different ways. He was very kind, but very quiet, the opposite of his on-stage persona. He said it was great to meet me, gave me a European kiss on the cheek, and was off to do the show.

I remember his eyes most, there was fierce intelligence, deep warmth, and just a shadow of sadness. I could see that hint of sadness.

I’m sorry he’s gone.

    This is one of the few celebrity losses that I’m really feeling. Thanks for sharing this meeting!

    This made me sad too. There was always something a little sad about Robin Williams I agree. And like Josh, I thank you for sharing the time you two met. Very nice,
