Fans from across the world remembered the legendary actor and thanked him for his contribution toward cinema and comedy. They were also grateful to him for being such a massive part of their childhood.
It has been exactly five years. Five years since one of the greatest comic actors left us. Who would have ever thought a legendary artist like Robin Williams, who made us all laugh through the years, was, in fact, a person battling severe depression. Fans from across the world were absolutely heartbroken and shattered after learning about his suicide.
The beloved Oscar-winning actor died on August 11, 2014, exactly five years ago leaving a huge void in Hollywood, a void that may never be filled. Robin was part of an illustrious career that spanned over 40 years, starring in in some of the best-known and best-loved films of all time.
You would always remember how Robin absolutely left an indelible mark on many major Hollywood movies like Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Will Hunting, Hook, and countless others. He is probably one of those very few actors who made adults and kids laugh and cry in equal measure.
On his fifth death anniversary, fans from across the world remembered the legendary actor and thanked him for his contribution toward cinema and comedy. They also fondly remembered him for being such a massive part of their childhood.
A Twitter user said: "It doesn't feel like 5 years have passed already. Seems like only yesterday such a funny, genuine, smart guy who just wanted everyone to smile and laugh and not worry about any troubles. God bless him and his family." Meanwhile, another added: "Can’t believe it’s been five years! Omfg. Can’t believe it. I miss him everyday! He was amazing! He will never be forgotten! Never ever forgotten!"

A recently published biography on Robin had revealed dark secrets about his life and his struggles with mental illness, as reported by Daily Mail. Dave Itzkoff's book on Robin Williams provided fans with quite a few shocking revelations -- including his last few days before tragedy struck.
Itzkoff took the help of Williams' closest family and friends, particularly his third wife Susan Williams in order to understand the final days of his life. He referred to Williams as someone who was "both wildly outgoing and painfully introverted."
The book also revealed that when Williams was filming Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, he was never able to memorize his lines. This was said by his makeup artist Cheri Minns who once revealed to New York Post, "He was sobbing in my arms at the end of every day. It was horrible. Horrible. I said to his people, 'I'm a makeup artist. I don't have the capacity to deal with what's happening to him.'"
