Robin Williams

As with most classic films that we watch over and over again, it's easy to forget that the cast of Mrs Doubtfire are not all frozen in time back in 1993.

Mara Wilson's gone on to ditch acting in favour of writing, Sally Field has been in everything from Brothers and Sisters to The Amazing Spider-Man, and while Robin Williams has since sadly passed away, his career also took off in a million different directions post-Doubtfire.

One cast member we haven't heard much from in a few years though is Matthew Lawrence, the teen actor who played Robin and Sally's son Chris.

After Mrs Doubtfire, Matthew went on to star in Boy Meets World, but there has been relative radio silence from him since 2000, aside from a few cameos for Nickelodeon.

Well, we've tracked him down, and we can confirm that the adult Matthew is 100% HOT. 

Here he is (FYI, he's now 36) posing for a selfie:

Oh, and there he is out for a hike.

Seems like the last 16 years have been very kind to him indeed.



Tissues at the ready people because these eight minutes of deleted scenes from Mrs. Doubtfire is enough to send anyone into an emotional spiral today. 

Someone has just uploaded a series of never-before-seen footage from the classic comedy film and it is a true testament to the talent that was Robin Williams. 

From his comedic timing to his emotional capabilities, this video captures the late actor at his best. 

Robin tragically took his own life in 2014. 

Watch the heart-wrenching clip below:



Aladdin was one of our favourite childhood movies.

Flying carpets, a magic lamp and the Genie made it one of the most memorable movies of our time. And now, never before seen footage of Robin Williams playing the Genie has been released. 

US TV show, Good Morning America, gained access to the unseen clips to mark the release of Aladdin: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray.

Watch the video below to remember all the magical movie scenes that also play tribute to Robin Williams – the true star of the film. 

And to continue the celebration for the new edition, stars Brad Kane, who voiced Aladdin, and Lea Salonga, Princess Jasmine, reunited on the show to sing their timeless duet, A Whole New World. 




Today marks one year since the death of legendary comedian, actor and voiceover artist Robin Williams, and tributes have been pouring in via social media all day.

Among the messages from fans and Hollywood stars alike was an especially beautiful one from Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. Posting a picture of the iconic wooden bench in Boston Public Garden which featured in Good Will Hunting, Sarah added a fitting quote from poet Ralph Waldo Emerson.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded" she wrote, adding "You succeeded RW #RobinWilliams."

Visible underneath the bench are various painted tributes from fans featuring quotes from Good Will Hunting.

Sarah Michelle and Robin starred together in the short-lived CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones back in 2013 – the late actor's final TV role.

The Mrs Doubtfire star was found dead at his California home on August 11th, 2014 aged 63. Suicide by hanging was later confirmed as the cause of death. Just months before his death Robin was diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.

Robin's daughter Zelda confirmed last month, on the eve of what would have been Robin's 64th birthday, that she was taking a break from social media to avoid seeing any negative comments about her father.

The 26-year-old was forced to close her Twitter and Instagram accounts just one day after his death last year after cruel trolls sent abusive messages along with Photoshopped pictures of his corpse to her via social media. Three weeks later she returned with new resolve, writing, "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim."

Along with Zelda, Robin is survived by his children Zak, aged 32, and Cody, aged 24.



The legendary Hollywood actor Robin Williams would have turned 64 today.

On the eve of his birth date, his 25-year old daughter Zelda announced that she would be taking a break from all social media.

She posted a photo on her Instagram account to inform her followers: "In my absence, I understand there will be those who wish to leave messages regarding Dad on my board," she continued.

"But please attempt to be respectful and kind to one another in the process, both because I will not be here to delete or mediate trolling, and because kindness is in short supply these days anyhow."

Most of the comments left on the photograph are birthday wishes for Robin along with many messages of support for Zelda herself.

This isn’t the first time Zelda has taken a break from social media following her father’s death. In February of this year she spoke for the first time with Today about life after her father’s death.

She said: "It's going to take a lot of work to allow myself to have the sort of fun, happy life that I had, but that's important," she said.

"Anybody who has ever lost anyone works very hard to continue that memory in a positive way."

It is not quite a year since news of Robin William’s death came to light and many still find it hard to believe the man who played the hilarious Mrs. Doubtfire is no longer with us.

Robin’s final film Boulevard is sure to be a tear jerker but the trailer is also incredibly beautiful and uplifting.

We put together a couple of the many times Robin Williams was able to put a smile on our faces.

"Oh Captain, my captain."



Actress Zelda Williams has leant her support to a ‘yes’ vote in Ireland’s forthcoming marriage referendum.

“As someone who’s grown up with many Irish people in her life, of every orientation (and I'll have yerr guts for garters if you say otherwise!), I hope their fight for marriage equality is successful,” she said in her Instagram post.

“You can do it Ireland! Make history!”

The message of support was made in response to a tweet from Tony- and Golden Globe-winner Ian McKellen.

Earlier this month, he addressed his “friends in Ireland,” saying: “Vote YES on 22 May and make your country first ever to legalise marriage equality by popular vote.”

Zelda, 25, is the only daughter of the late Robin Williams, who had three children from two marriages.

Before his death from suicide last August, the celebrated actor said: “My children give me a great sense of wonder: just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings.”

In October, Zelda paid tribute to her father with a tattoo of a hummingbird on her right hand, along with his birth-date, July 21 1951, on her right wrist. 



There is no doubt that Robin Williams’ death back in August left an enormous void in the world of acting and comedy. His tragic suicide left many wondering what could possibly have happened the much-loved actor that would lead him to take his own life. Recent reports have established that neither illegal drugs nor alcohol were found in the sixty-three-year-old’s system, which while comforting also raised many further questions.

It seems, however, that some of these questions were answered today with court documents stating that Robin, who suffered from Parkinson’s disease, was also battling Lewy body dementia.

Those suffering from this form of dementia commonly experience severe hallucinations and both Robin’s doctors and family have agreed that the condition was a key factor in his suicide. The delusions may appear in the form of animals, objects or people from the past and sufferers can struggle to identify friends and family.

Tragically, many people battling Parkinson’s disease also struggle with Lewy body dementia and unfortunately suffer negative side effects from the Parkinson’s medication. Robin’s wife Susan Schneider has revealed that her husband complained about the medication in the days leading up to his death.

We're so sad to hear that Robin had to deal with so much ill health before his untimely death.


There have been reports that the late Robin William’s memorial service is being held today in Tiburon, California.

According to sources, the service “will be small” as both Robin and Susan were “both very private people”.

So, we thought it fitting to share this touching poem written by Jim Meskimen who has been the voice of the Genie in Aladdin in a number of video games since 2008. Williams was the one who brought the Genie to life in the original making of the Disney film.

To honour the memory of such a talented man and to decide whether he would continue to voice the Disney character, Jim “decided to write this poem, to work it out for [himself], and to answer the question.”

Sit down with a cup of tea and have a listen to the beautiful piece.

If you don’t have any important plans tonight, then you may as well make a trip down to Merrion Square to see the open air screening of Dead Poets Society at 8pm.

A string of Robin Williams’ best films are being aired across the city by Happenings, a group who organise spontaneous events in Limerick and Dublin, as a tribute to the late star.

Good Will Hunting will also be aired in Fitzwilliam Square on Saturday night at 7.30pm.

The Light House cinema in Smithfield will be airing some of his films as well, such as Aladdin on August 23rd and Good Will Hunting on August 24th. All proceeds will go to Pieta House.



Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda publicly acknowledged her father’s death with a touching post on Instagram earlier today.

She shared a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book The Little Prince, in memory of her father.

“You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing,” reads the quote. “And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing… You – only you – will have stars that can laugh.”

The quote is followed by a short personal message:

“I love you. I miss you. I’ll try to keep looking up. Z.”

Zelda is the second of Williams’ three children. Robin’s final Instagram post, nearly two weeks ago, was a black-and-white shot of himself and a young Zelda with the caption “#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl.”
