UPDATE: While people are trying to still make sense of Williams' suicide, his wife revealed that the beloved entertainer suffered from Parkinson's disease in the following statement:

Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child — Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid.

Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.

It is our hope in the wake of Robin's tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid.

The Oscar winning actor and comedian unexpectedly passed away Monday morning at the age of 63. According to a press release issued by the Marin County Coroner's office, the Sheriff's office suspects the death to be "suicide due to asphyxia." Williams' publicist has released the following statement:

Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.

Robin Williams won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting and is also well known for his other roles in films such as Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, and Jumanji.

The award-winning TV and movie actor, James Garner, died Saturday in his home in Los Angeles at 86.

Garner — most famous for his roles in 1950s western drama "Maverick," in addition to his role as a private investigator in "The Rockford Files" — was also well-known for many movies, including "The Great Escape" (1963) and the Oscar-nominated "Murphy's Romance" (1985).

"The actor's long success on television, usually as a droll and reluctant hero, was how he was chiefly remembered despite acclaimed performances in movies," The Post's Adam Bernstein wrote in an obituary.

Garner was also known to later generations as he starred in movies such as "The Notebook," along with the ABC sitcom "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" in 2002.
