Hollywood Remembers Robin Williams

    "He gave so much to so many people," tweeted Ellen DeGeneres. "I'm heartbroken."

    When news broke that Robin Williams died on Monday morning in his California home, the two actresses who played his daughters in the beloved family film Mrs. Doubtfire tweeted about the loss of their on-screen dad.

    Very sad, very upset, very glad I did not have to hear about this though Twitter. Probably going to be taking some time off it for a while.

    As did his on-screen brother.

    Robin was friend, boss, brother, inspiration... His generosity & intelligence knew no limits. Only his home planet could destroy him.

    Scott Weinger, the voice of Aladdin, tweeted his thoughts.

    Farewell to my childhood hero and my Genie. The world won't be the same without him.

    Along with members of the cast from Hook.

    Terrible loss. Thank you for all the great memories Robin. You'll always have a special place in my heart. May you lay peaceful. #bangarang
