Fact of the Day: Friend of Robin

Robin Williams was close friends with Superman actor Christopher Reeve since their days as students at The Juilliard School. After Reeve became paralyzed from an accident, he says Williams was the first person to ever make him laugh again. Williams also helped Reeve with his medical bills until he passed away in 2004, and provided for Reeve's teenage son after his widow passed away in 2006.

  2. That's interesting and very nice of Robin. I didn't know Christopher's wife had passed on either.

  3. That is wonderful, and does not surprise me. Robin Williams was loved on and off screen; a very kind soul. The world is a sadder place without him.

  9. I didn't know this about Robin Williams. I also didn't realize (or maybe remember) that CR's wife had died in 2006. I was once married to a quadriplegic, so I know the struggles that CR, his wife, and son faced. CR was truly brave, and Robin gave him laughter again. Thank you for sharing this, Adam.

  11. Such a sweet friendship. I didn't even know they were friends until after Christopher Reeve was paralyzed. I remember reading Christopher Reeve's bio while he was still alive and there's a lot of stuff in there about Robin Williams.

  13. So mant things you learn about a person when they're gone. Too bad we didn't know about all the good things Robin did when he was alive.
