ROBIN WILLIAMS R.I.P.
He was in a corner of the room, with his wife, this was probably in the late 1980s or early '90s. At any rate, he came across to me as extremely self-conscious and shy, pretty unlike his stage and screen persona. Though he did make a few attempts at humor, I mostly felt like it was painful for him to be in that room with all those people, most as famous or more than him, except for me.
He seemed like a sweet guy, and was obviously an amazingly unique talent, but neither sweetness nor talent could keep him from his troubles, which is terribly sad. I feel for his family and friends and hope he found the relief he was seeking.
