The Hollywood Reporter reports that Robin Williams is dead.

I'm speechless. This is so sad.

Absolutely unbelievable.

I can't believe it... Just heard a few minutes ago and my stomach dropped... I knew there'd be something about it here...

I just feel what MMM said... Disbelief in his death and the cause. I just can't believe he would kill himself, I understand he was battling with depression and substance abuse, but there's no way it can get better if you take your life. He will be very badly missed by millions, he left such a large impact on people from very young ages to everywhere above.

Personally, he is one of my favorite, if not favorite, comedians. He was a great actor obviously in all the funny movies he was in, but also in more serious roles such as the one he played in Goodwill Hunting. I love Mrs. Doubtfire and have great memories of watching that movie. Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies just because of the genie.

I just feel empty. This is a big loss and I hope the best for his family now (especially his children) in this horrible time.

It really makes me realize how much of an impact these people have on our lives without us ever meeting them. It also makes me dread the days we hear of any more Beatle passings, or deaths of other great people in the world.

Bye Robin... I'll miss you. heart

But that's the thing about severe depression. You get to the point where you don't see it getting better at all.

Rest in peace and peace to his loved ones.

He battled all his life against depression and it appears he may have lost that battle.  Williams had done public service work on both depression and suicide, filming a spot where he said "...suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."

Depression is still so poorly misunderstood.  In the barrage of condolence tweets this morning, the one that stood out for me was from talk show host Jimmy Kimmel who said "If you're sad, please tell someone."  I would add if you think someone may be falling deep, ask them if they're okay.  And then ask again.

I never liked Mork & Mindy, and sometimes I found his formal standup routines tedious -- but I always loved his spontaneous ad-libs whenever he was on a talk show (Carson, Leno, Letterman) -- the structure of bouncing off a straight man (and Letterman was best in that role) always brought out the sheer brilliance of Robin's genius.  It was very cool that he admired and appreciated the great Jonathan Winters so much (they made a TV special together back in the 90s).

I was so shocked when I heard the news today. What a sad way to go. I loved all the movies he was in especially Mrs. Doubtfire. He had the ability to take was sounds like a cheesy movie and make it hilarious and worth watching. I will really miss Robin.heart

I can't believe he is gone. A great actor who has inspired and touched so many people. A very funny man. 

I knew he was battling with depression and substance abuse, but it didn't really occur to me that it could end like this. It's truly awful and there should be a bigger focus on problems like depression. It's very important to reach out for help yourself, and not to be ashamed or afraid no one will help you. There are enough people who will. But also, the other way around, people should try to talk to people who they suspect of being depressive more as well.

Stunned.

From his widow: "As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."

Peace & Love to Robin and his family.

My uncle Dru was in a rehab facility in the Bay Area about a decade or so ago. How he wound up out there is anybody's guess (he's kind of the black sheep in the family), but another person who was rehabbing at the facility was Robin Williams. According to my mom (and all of the following is what she told me that Dru told her), Dru told her that he and Robin were in a pick-up basketball game at the facility when Robin spotted a black mole on my uncle's forearm. "You might want to get that checked out," Robin told him, and he did, and it was a pre-cancerous mole. When Dru went to the hospital to get it removed,  he found out the procedure was already paid for in advance, no questions asked. Dru asked "Who did that?" The doctor said the guy insisted that it remain anonymous, but did says his initials were "R.W." When Dru asked Robin about it the next day, as Robin was leaving the facility, Robin told him the only way he wanted Dru to pay him back was for my uncle to mend the relationship with his daughter. Robin said something to the extent of "Family are all we have in the end. We need to let them know we love and care for them." I don't know for sure, but that might be the last conversation Dru had with Robin. And after hearing of Robin's death, that was the first thing I thought of.

I am competently shocked because it was so unexpected. I guess because I didn't know about his depression, though the news claims it was well known, or I just don't want to believe he would commit suicide. I know depression, serve depression, can very well lead a person down a dark hole and possibly suicide. So, dark I would not even wish it on upon my worst enemies. A part of my childhood is gone. RIP Robin Williams

More and more (and I'm sure we're going to hear much more, as time goes on) Williams was one of those anonymous people who helped others without asking for anything in return.

Barry Levinson's tribute in particular made me teary.

There was always a kindness to Robin. An inquisitive man trying to understand the madness of mankind. But when the comedy motors were off, you could sense the vulnerability of the man. There was always a sense that he could easily be hurt. And if he were hurt, how quickly could he heal? A bleeder in a world of sharp edges. There was an innocence to his thoughtful intelligence. If there were an endangered species list for mankind, he would have been first on that list. He was perhaps too delicate for this difficult world. We lost one of a kind. We all lost a friend.
