Transcript for Cheryl Hines on Working With Robin Williams
Jest, S, thanks so much. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the one and only robin Williams. Cheryl Hines starred with him in "Rv" and remembers her co-star and friend. Good morning. Thank you so much for being here to celebrate the life of your friend, robin Williams. Good morning. I'm really glad you're celebrating his life. Because it's such a sad time but he brought so much happiness and laughter to everybody and I think that's the right thing to do is celebrate that. As they what his family has wanted everyone to do, as well. And so tell us, because we've been talking about how we knew him here in "Good morning America" but what was he like when the cameras weren't roll yg. One of my first encounters with robin, I didn't know him before we started shooting "Rv" and we shot in Canada and it was very hot and between scenes I made a comment about being hot and sweaty and he immediately lifted up my arm and planted his head in my armpit and the whole -- of course, the whole cast and crew was watching and that was the beginning of our relationship. Cheryl, he was famous for sort of ad-libbing, leaving big spaces they did for him in all of the scripts because they just knew he would take it and run with it. Yes. Of course, that's what he did best. So I would wait for him to finish. It didn't matter trying to memorize your cues because there was never a cue. You had to just wait till he wound dn and then you'd say your line. And, Cheryl, you have worked with so many comedic greats but how does robin stand out for you among all of them? Well, you know, robin was very, very generous soul and he knew that people were excited to meet him and were excited to be on the set with him and just like you all have been talking about this morning, he really did make it a point to talk to the person that was taking out the trash on the set and even when my mom came to visit from Florida, and he -- every time he saw her would get up and hug her and make her feel special. And that was a quality that a lot of people in general don't have, much less comedians. Yeah. So true. So true. So wonderful. Hey, Cheryl, thank you so much for sharing your insight. Your memories and before we go, we all want to say congratulations. Yes. On your recent marriage. Thank you. Wish you all the best. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thanks for taking the time to celebrate robin Williams.
