He portrayed an obsessive photo lab worker in “One Hour Photo.”

Reviewing the film in The New York Times, Elvis Mitchell wrote that,

“Underscoring his characters’ pride in a profession,

and the way their self-definition derives from this,

is Mr. Williams’s singular strength as an actor.

 

He brings a real working-class ethos to the Method,

and is so good here it’s almost painful to watch.”

His wife, Susan Schneider, said in a statement on Monday,

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend,

while the world lost one of its most beloved artists

and beautiful human beings.”

 

She added: “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.”

"Comedy is there to basically show us we fart, we laugh.

To make us realize we still are part animal....

So you don't take yourself seriously and destroy the species."

- Robin Williams in 1991, as told to Lawrence Grobel

 

Comedian and actor Robin Williams

died on August 11, 2014 at the age of 63.

 

In tribute, we wanted to create an animated interview short

that shed a light on both his brilliant, rapid-fire, comedic mind,

as well as his sensitivity and concern for the world around him.

 

We found the perfect outtakes--vintage Robin Williams--

in two interviews recorded by Lawrence Grobel for a story he wrote

for Playboy magazine in 1992.
