I never get you people as I have always liked Robin Williams. Mrs Doubtfire? Owen Wilson is hating every moment of this interview though.
Dead Poets' Society
Good Morning Vietnam
Popeye the Movie
The Fisher King
Other than these 4 things, open season on Robin Williams.
Actually, there was a brief time in the 90's when Williams was tolerable, and it culminated in this film. This is because Williams is already a cartoon.
Robin Williams was never funny. He ruined Alladin too. 90 straight minutes of celebrity impressions on par with your average office "comedian".

For my opinion on Robin Williams, see:
The first scene in Homer as a Genius
I got through thirty seconds of that. I'd try to kill myself too if I had to do a whole press junket with him.
Robin Williams was never funny. I'm going to hunt down anyone who goes "durrrrrrrrrr he wuz funee when he wuz high hyuck" NO HE WASN'T
He was always a spastic, flailing douche. His career has been one long desparate plea for the audience to love him.
Sorry, but Owen Wilson looks like the douche here.
Hope he gets through his depression, though.
CAN WE AGREE THAT THEY'RE BOTH DOUCHES?
I think Steve Coogan has been unfairly blamed.
Maybe not suicide, but I would have killed them both. That interviewer is fucking horrible as well.
All actors are attention whores. But Williams is a man who will fucking stab a baby in the eye if he is not the absolute sole nucleus of attention for every waking moment of his life. It matters not to him if he's actually funny or not, so long as he's the loudest man in the room.
Seated next to him, how can lesser attention whores like Wilson not be irritated? Of course he'd end up resorting to half-assed suicide, the most classic of all desperate attention-grabbing techniques.

I can't remember who wrote it but someone wrote this great bit on PoeN about how Robin Williams must act at home in front of his kids, who probably just sigh.
He definitely tries too hard.
So this is what prompted Owen Wilson's suicide attempt...

You can see Wilson physically distancing himself from Williams in this interview.
Reading the youtube comments is a trainwreck as usual. Everyone theorizing that Wilson is OVERWHELMED by Robin's comic GENIUS and cannot keep up.
