The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of...

A lover of classic Hollywood cinema & the small screen. And all the glorious men and women of yesteryear that made us love the flickering screen...(and the massive amounts of coffee that allow me to watch & enjoy all of this into the wee hours) With yours truly as your host,

Robin Williams: sober and battling Parkinson’s, according to wife
Robin Williams’ wife Susan Schneider issued a statement Thursday morning, revealing that the Oscar-winning actor and comedian had been battling the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, in addition to depression and anxiety. According to the statement, Schneider says Williams was sober at the time of his suicide on Monday, Aug. 11.
The coroner’s office has yet to release its toxicology report.
The full statement:
“Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the front lines, 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.”
Schneider, a graphic designer, married Williams in October 2011.
