Robin Williams’ friend reveals
actor resented having to do
new Mrs Doubtfire

Telegraph (UK), by Josie Ensor

Posted By:mitzi, 8/13/2014 12:25:33 PM

Robin Williams resented having to do a second Mrs Doubtfire film but felt compelled in order to keep money coming in, a close friend of the actor has told the Telegraph. Williams, who had been working on four projects when he was believed to have taken his own life this week, was said to have been dreading making more films as they "brought out his demons". He had committed to starring in sequels to the hugely successful Mrs Doubtfire and Night in the Museum, as well as comedy Merry Friggin’ Christmas, and the drama Boulevard. But according to his neighbour

I was never a Robin Williams fan, didn´t see his movies - so I have no opinion of his work.

Why do people put themselves in a position where they believe there´s no alternative but to sell their soul to the devil. Nothing good comes from it ... as we see here.

Give his family some respect. ENOUGH.

Sounds like he was tired of being the ´funny man´ when the work became drudgery. It´s unfortunate he couldn´t see another way out of the difficulties that plagued him.

Actions have consequences - a wife and two ex-wives, plus three children are expensive to maintain.

By becoming a big star, you give up your privacy in both life and death in exchange for the fame and fortune that comes with being a big star.

When you commit suicide on top of all that, you can´t expect people not to talk about you. You can´t have it both ways.

The only person who disrespected Robin Williams´ family was Robin, by leaving them with the mess he created when he killed himself.

While I didn´t agree with his politics, I had a lot of respect for his talent, and the good things he did for the USO and children with cancer.

But he clearly had a lot of personal demons, and to think people aren´t going to talk about those demons is ridiculous.

In reality, it may very well do a lot more good that we are talking about his demons. It may make some people get the help they need to not follow in his footsteps. You have to hope that some good comes out of the worst things...

Agree, #5; Robin made many trips to visit and entertain troops in the desert, big kudos for that.

As noted, the ex-wives can drain one´s bank account, but there is no reason you can´t live in a house that a tad UNDER $30 million.

But again, kudos to Robin for setting up the trusts for his kids so they would have something to live on, regardless of his lack of money.

RIP Robin; you made a lot of people laugh a lot, including me. Please say hello to Jonathan Winters, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Rodney Dangerfield for me. Can´t wait to get to Heaven and see that lineup.

This guy was a true working actor unlike some fading stars that can´t get work anymore, I´m sure he felt fortunate. In acting he was loved and absolutely revered by the A listers as he had become, I´m sure he could´ve reached out to any of them, yet he was humble. It´s a strange thing with clinical depression and addiction. So linking his suicide to simply movie roles or financial burdens seems irresponsible of the media.

I´m pretty certain the Tiburon house isn´t worth 30M - that´s probably the asking price for the Napa ranch. Truth be told, the Napa property likely isn´t actually worth 30M - the RE axiom that a property is only worth what someone is willing to pay probably supports the fact that the ranch has been on the market for some time...

The constant refrain that he had to take parts that he hated really boils me.

Who doesn´t wake up to a job that sometimes requires doing, not because you wish to do it, but because one has to make a living. Please stop making that an excuse for suicide or we will all vanish.

Every month I receive a newsletter detailing all the cruelty and persecution suffered by fellow Christians in every part of the globe. Whether by governments or terrorist groups and yet they praise our Lord and Savior. Contrast that suffering with starring in Doubtfire 2. I would be characterized in the harshest terms if I said what I thought of that.

As for resentment, it´s understandable. He was one of the top actors for decades. He made and blew - no pun intended - a sizable fortune. At his stage in life, he shouldn´t have had to take crappy roles for money, but he made bad decisions that caught up to him in the end.

Williams´ joking about alimony shows his avoidance of the real issues: His own behavior. His exes didn´t leave him just for spite. He cheated and had an out-of-control addiction. Coke isn´t cheap, either.

He had depression and was bipolar and didn´t have the greatest self-control. I think it´s safe to say his ending wasn´t going to be good, no matter how it came about.

For those of you upset about the continued discussion about the poor man´s tragic end, personal life, etc.? Please let´s remember who is fueling and feeding the media frenzy with daily details? HOLLYWOOD! Yes, the people who supposedly cared about and loved d their colleague are now busy looking forward to huge pay days off increased sales of ALL things Robin Williams. This is why the gossip is not going to subside. It is to the industry´s best interests to keep it going. Note a headline yesterday that demand for his DVD movies skyrocketed.

Pardon me if I am dry eyed on this. I never liked Robin Williams. Didn´t like his comedic style, and found his incessant mugging for the camera irritating. That said, he may have been the nicest of guys, and entertained the troops, and all that. But to me, he was just another dissolute Hollywood type who couldn´t handle life. Mark him down. Like Phillip Seymore Hoffman. Beloved, respected as possibly the greatest actor of his generation. Rich, famous for all the right reasons; nice family, kids, life partner. What could heroin possibly give him that he couldn´t get anywhere else? Like Michael Jackson. Drunks, druggies, degenerates, the lot of them. At the end of the day, who really cares?

A question a bit off the subject perhaps: if part of his financial issues were over alimony requirements for exes, do future royalty payments continue to go to those old obligations or do those obligations die with him? Crass, I know, but still curious.

Still think he was taking antidepressants that backfired and made him more depressed.

Clinical depression isn´t a joke. The friend is talking about what the deceased said to him man to man. The friend is attempting to make sense of it all. Sounds like Williams was manic as well as depressive. When the cycle turns, the things one committed to while up become devastating when down. Rehab really wasn´t enough, he should have signed himself in to a high class mental hospital. Unfortunately, judgment is the first thing to go.

#20, your comment about antidepressants reminded me of a conversation I had recently with someone who is taking therapy and being treated for a back problem. Possible side-effects of one of the medicines (can´t recall the name of it) is depression with suicidal thoughts. There is a warning to tell your doctor immediately if you begin to notice these side-effects.

As you said, "it happens". Medicines affect individuals differently.

GENEVA — The Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa risks ballooning into a humanitarian catastrophe without a major surge in international efforts to contain it, senior United Nations officials said Tuesday, estimating the cost of this effort at $1 billion. The number of people affected by the disease is still rising at an “almost exponential” rate, Bruce Aylward, an assistant director general of the World Health Organization, said at a news conference in Geneva. He said the number of reported cases had climbed to 4,985, including 2,461 deaths. Half of the infections and deaths occurred in the past 21 days,

I’m old enough to remember when worrying about the ebola outbreak was said to be the business of paranoid hysterics. It’s not that bad of an outbreak, ebola’s not terribly contagious, it’ll never come to the United States, and if it does we’re totally ready to kick its microscopic ass with containment teams ready to swoop in as soon as highly-trained TSA agents notice air passengers with any of the symptoms. It’s not even worth talking about. Just ignore ebola and it will go away. That was then, and this is now. The Washington Post reports that President Obama has

WASHINGTON — A nonpartisan congressional agency is raising new questions about compliance with a key compromise on abortion that allowed the federal health care law to pass in 2010. The Government Accountability Office said in a report released late Monday that only 1 of 18 insurers it reviewed was separately itemizing a charge for coverage of elective abortions on enrollees’ bills. That detail is important because the original compromise that President Barack Obama sealed with anti-abortion Democrats stipulated that no federal funds would be used to pay for elective abortions. Instead, private health plans covering the procedure would collect a

The precedent for such atrocities is not so distant.

We can celebrate the fact that the United States is apparently going to bomb ISIS vigorously and not sporadically, and is going to bomb in Syria, aiming at ISIS, and is also going to assist moderate factions in the Syrian civil war. This last development is unconscionably late, as there was a time when the moderates were a much better bet than they are now, squeezed between the Assad regime and the militant Islamists. There is no possible explanation that is not discreditable for why we went from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s assertion that Assad was “a reformer,” to

And as President Obama prepares to enlarge America´s aid to affected countries, a company that makes protective clothing says the State Department, which oversees USAID, has invited bids for 160,000 hazmat suits.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland).
