Sam Neill describes Robin Williams as the 'funniest' but 'saddest' person he's ever met

The 75-year-old reflected on the time he spent with Williams shooting 1999's Bicentennial Man in his new memoir, Did I Ever Tell You This? and described the late actor as "irresistibly, outrageously, irrepressibly, gigantically funny". However, the Jurassic Park actor could also sense a "dark space inside" the Good Will Hunting star. “He had fame, he was rich, people loved him, great kids - the world was his oyster. And yet I felt more sorry for him than I can express. He was the loneliest man on a lonely planet.” Neill recalled how Williams seemed "inconsolably solitary, and deeply depressed."
