    Just something I came across earlier and felt was worth sharing. :(

    It actually reminded me of this old cartoon by Guillermo Mordillo. I’m glad I was able to find it online as I no longer have the book.

    People think they know you. They expect you to be literally like you are on TV or in the movies, bouncing off the walls. A woman in an airport once said to me, "Be zany!" People always want zany, goofy sh-t from me. It takes a lot of energy to do that. If you do that all the time, you'll burn out.” - Robin Williams

    some of my family members met him once. They had him over for dinner and then they spent most of the evening with him. They said that he was all over the place, just like his antics on stage. A million jokes and smiles, energy through the roof. I'm pretty sure he had two modes: extreme joy, and deep depression.

    Some people are wired that way, and I can only imagine how rough it must be just making it through each day.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion, Ghostman! :yesway: I don’t think it’s been on at the cinema in Greece, so I had no idea about it, but have just found it on the website of my local video club and will be renting it soon. By the way, it’s ‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’, but you weren’t far off I guess. ;)

    Judging from the trailer, I’m really going to enjoy him in this. :D

    You will definitely like that movie. I saw it just last week on Netflix. Sorry 'bout the name mess up. LOL

    One of my favorite movies with him. He was great at comedy but could REALLY turn it on with dramatic roles:

    I actually watched this when it came out quite a few years ago and, you’re right, I loved it! :yesway:
