It's hard to believe that we live in a world without comedic genius Robin Williams. But on his birthday today, fans around the world are remembering the star, who brought so much joy to so many.
Among the many talking about his greatness is Robin's Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon, who has opened up about their special relationship.
'Working with Robin almost defies description. He was one of the most generous, loving, wonderful people I've ever met,' Matt told ET of the legendary star, who passed away in August 2014. 'He had this capacity that I've never seen on a movie set.'
Matt has given new insight into the man behind the superstar, revealing what he was like after the cameras stopped running.
'When everyone started to get tired and started to flag a little bit, he would launch into standup. We knew it was original because he was making fun of crew members and pulling them into these bits. It was like 15 minutes of the best stand-up ever that was just privately for us. Everyone would laugh and laugh and laugh, and then everybody would get this boost of energy and go back to work.'
Despite the sad way that Robin's life ended, Matt told ET he gets comfort from his many wonderful memories about the star.
'[We'll] never be able to thank [Robin] enough for what he gave us. In my heart, that's where he is, as this person that I'm deeply, deeply grateful [for that] came into my life and changed it for the better.'
Sadly, not all is well in Robin's family, with reports of discord over his wife Susan's reported plans to write a tell-all book.
'She’s trying to write something,” a family friend told In Touch weekly. 'She stands to make millions.
'[Robin] would have hated this. Robin’s family has a big team of lawyers, and they don’t want this to happen.'
