Everyone today will be talking about the apparent suicide of Robin Williams.
By the way, the great thing about suicide is THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS DO IT TOMORROW.
The two first met when they were drama students and roommates at Julliard. A friendship was born…
Before they became famous, Robin and Christopher promised each other that whoever made it would take care of the less fortunate one.
But they both become successful in their careers, and remained close friends throughout…
Then, came Christopher's tragic accident.
Chris once wrote:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent."
The man announced that he was a proctologist and was going to perform a rectal exam on Reeve.
It was Robin Williams, reprising his character from the film Nine Months.
“For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.”
Robin even vowed to cover any hospital costs that Reeve’s family couldn’t cover.
Robin refused to ever claim he had. But a source close to Reeve's family said he had.
The two remained great friends until Chris's death in 2004.
Zelda Williams, only daughter of Robin, tweeted from THE LITTLE PRINCE in honor of her father:
"You — you alone will have the stars as no one else has them," the quote read.
“In one of the stars I shall be living.
In one of them I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...
You — only you — will have stars that can laugh."
