Whoopi Goldberg had elevator ‘fart war’ with Robin Williams and Billy Crystal

Whoopi Goldberg was once involved in an elevator “fart war” with Robin Williams and Billy Crystal, according to her granddaughter. Amara Skye Dean shared her “favorite” story from the “View” co-host, 66, on Entertainment Weekly’s clip from “Claim to Fame” on Monday. The tale involved Williams, who died in 2014 at age 65, and his “Father’s Day” co-star, 74. “[She], Robin Williams and Billy Crystal [were] standing in an elevator, and Robin Williams was just farting his life away,” Dean explained. “I guess they were Dutch-ovening each other, just basking in the ambiance of farts.” She added that Goldberg, whose real name is Caryn...

Using Different Languages, Robin Williams Snuck ‘Dirty Stuff’ Past ‘Mork & Mindy’ Censors

Robin Williams is regarded as one of America’s greatest comedians. His fame grew exponentially following his appearance in Mrs. Doubtfire, but before his role in that 1993 film, he had been cast as Mork, first in the TV show Happy Days and then in the spin-off Mork & Mindy. In the sitcom, Mork was an alien from the planet Ork who came to Earth to experience a primitive civilization in the company of his friend and eventual, love interest, Mindy McConnell (Pam Dawber), reporting home on all he discovers.

Robin Williams Was Uniquely Qualified For His One Hour Photo Role

Even some of his more dramatic roles, such as "The Fisher King" and "Dead Poets Society," show a deeply layered actor behind the laughter. He didn't win a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Good Will Hunting" for nothing. It was always exciting whenever Williams got to drop the funny persona and play against type, like in Christopher Nolan's "Insomnia."

How 'The Fisher King' Showcases Robin Williams at His Most Heartbreaking

Robin Williams is one of the greatest comedians of all time. That might sound like a statement akin to “water is wet” and other such remarks, but there’s no harm in repeating something we can all agree with. While his celebrated career in stand-up comedy whose talent for rapid-fire improvisation made him one of the most influential comedians of his generation, it was his career in the film industry that elevated him to levels of admiration few celebrities can match. Most of these adhered to his comedic roots, but Williams was more than willing to step away from his comfort zone for roles that were quite at odds with his usual persona. For example, his roles as a serial killer in Insomnia or as a depressed bank teller in Boulevard sees him deliberately acting against type, with the contrast between them and a more stereotypical Robin Williams performance only heightening their severity. The differences are so large you’d be forgiven for thinking that two entirely different people were operating under one name – a feeling that, in hindsight, was unfortunately close to the truth.
