Robin Williams Hanging with Mel

Robin Williams has joined Mel Gibson in the world of rehab. This time there were no major public incidents, but Robin who had been sober for 20 years had a relapse and wanted help before he went off the deep end. Smart move Robin. Here's more:

Williams "found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the well-being of his family," she said in a statement. "He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases."

Robin has two movies coming out by the end of the year. He has "Man of the Year" in October and "Happy Feet". He is also currently in "The Night Listener". We wish him well in his recovery.

Maybe he was worried he'd have a Mel-like incident.

The thing is, it's not proactive if he was actively drinking. But I love Robin Williams. I met him at a music and art festival in Tuscon a couple of years ago and he's such an exhausting manic personality, but it's funny and he's truly a caring person.

I was really sad to hear this news..I hope he has a quick recovery. I do think it's somewhat ironic that in the news they are saying that he's a friend of Mel's. Being that he's Jewish I find that hard to believe.

Robin Williams is crazy man, but not a huge surprise that he is going over the edge. He is funny in a crazy insane way, but you can't help liking him. Hope he's okay!

I think my fave movie of his is definitely Mrs. Doubtfire, it is so funny. Atleast he had been sober for 20 years:)

A ha.. here is a celebrity (finally) that I have absolutely nothing bad to say about. Well didn't he leave his wife for the maid or nanny or something? Denied it but actually did blah blah blah? Regardless.. he's an awesome actor wish him the best. Very cool that he caught it before it got out of control and is getting help!

I agree, music. He runs the gamut with his talent. In serious films and then he freaking shows up in RV with JoJo. Clearly he enjoys his work and is not full of himself, nor does he think any role is beneath him. Shiloh, I think the crazy atmosphere of H-wood lends to addictive personalities and thus addictive disorders.

I think it is because they are normal people just like us, it's just that everyone finds out about their addictions. Alcoholism is pretty common so it's not surprising.

Best of luck to him. I have nothing bad to say about him because Robin is a great actor IMO.
