Personal Quote:

Countering the complaint that the juiciest roles go to younger actors: They (the roles) may not be financially enriching, but personally enriching? Yes. You are no longer under pressure. You don't have to prove yourself on some levels, but you do have to [creatively] push yourself. See more »


Chris Columbus likened Williams to "an impressive ball of fire" he was blown away by when he saw him doing stand up in comedy clubs in Los Angeles and pronounced him "one of the most brilliant minds he had ever come across in terms of comedy". They later worked together on films like Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Nine Months (1995) and Bicentennial Man (1999). See more »
