Tom Hanks - Tom Hanks Pays Tribute To Robin Williams In Rolling Stone Essay

Subscribe To:

Tom Hanks has joined the legions of celebrities paying tribute to Robin Williams by writing an essay for the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

As part of a 10-page special, the Forrest Gump star recalls hanging out with his fellow Oscar winner after they became friends at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles while filming break-out Tv comedies Bosom Buddies and Mork & Mindy.

Hanks writes, "When you got to know Robin, he was a blast... He'd howl as your kids imitated a Star Wars Tauntaun and riff along with your wife. He was a thoughtful, kind man that made conversation so very easy, no work at all, a great hang.

"His eyes, when not crunched in laughter, showed the wear and tear of our generation and our profession, the wrestled demons, the rough miles on the odometer. He had wisdom born of all the burns and scars of his life, and he was funny about it.

"If we ever forget how people make us feel, we'll remember Robin forever."

Williams committed suicide at his home in Marin County, California earlier this month (Aug14).
