Robin Williams' 'Jumanji' co-star reveals his depression battle
Robin Williams' 'Jumanji' co-star Bradley Pierce has opened up about his own struggle with depression following the death of the actor saying that he was diagnosed with depression when he was 16-year-old, a few years after he filmed the movie.
Pierce told TMZ.com that the late 63-year-old actor was an absolute inspiration to him, just like he was to everyone that knew him and even so many people that didn't.
He said that Williams was an amazing guy and the actor will definitely be missed.
Talking about his own battle with depression, the 31-year-old actor said that he had been secretly fighting it for a long time.
Pierce added that his wife and his few close friends knew about his depression, but he really played it close to the vest until Williams actually died.
