Last year we lost one of the best actors for the past at least three decades. Robin Williams was a one of a kind actor that like many others I grew up with. I know him as the voice of the Genie then on to movies like ‘Jack’, ‘Good Will Hunting’, and ‘Flubber’ just to name a few, a very few. Obviously his list of credentials is a long one and many of his movies will go down as being some of the best dramas and comedies of all time. Robin’s ability to bring such happiness and light to the screen was a true gift. I am proud to be able to say that I grew up in a time where I got to see Robin Williams act.
Here are a few of his best roles, and quotes, in my own opinion of course.
– No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. Robin Williams
– If women ran the world we wouldn’t have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days. Robin Williams
– If Heaven exists, to know that there’s laughter, that would be a great thing. Robin Williams
– What’s right is what’s left if you do everything else wrong. Robin Williams
It actually makes me extremely sad to be writing this blog about the death of Oscar winning actor Robin Williams. This actor brought light into every single project he was a part of and could also play the darker roles when needed, like his role in the Oscar winning film Good Will Hunting.
Being a bit younger my first real exposure to Robin Williams was when he played genie in Aladdin and I loved that. Then I saw Mrs. Doubtfire and eventually movies like Flubber, Patch Adams, and Jack just to name a few favorites. Robin Williams never failed to make me laugh and I am sure that he made all of you laugh as well.
Can you think of an actor who was loved like Robin Williams had been? I feel like you never heard a bad word about him. When people approached him for photos and autographs he was gracious and kind to them. From what everyone says in different interviews he was a bit charismatic but he was always genuine.
There are many different stories going around the net right now about what exactly happened to the beloved actor but you won’t find any of that gossip on this blog. Even though I like to rip up some celebrities when a celebrity dies people need to remember one thing, a human has passed away. This person beneath all of their celebrity has family, friends, and loved ones that are also hurting.
Rest in beautiful peace Robin Williams and I am very sad to see such an incredible actor taken far before his time.
