We're still so sad over the death of Robin Williams, especially since a new police press conference revealed some rather disturbing and graphic details about his passing.

Just so awful.

Now, Nathan Lane, Robin's co-star in The Birdcage, spoke out about his untimely and tragic death, and his words made us truly feel the weight of a loss of such a comedic talent:

"I feel I have to say something more than just 'heartbreaking and shocking' which everyone has said and I feel as well, but something a little more personal. Thus the following:

One day in 1995 while riffing in the character of a snobby French toy store owner, Robin made me laugh so hard and so long that I cried. It seemed to please him to no end. Yesterday I cried again at the thought that he was gone. What I will always remember about Robin, perhaps even more than his comic genius, extraordinary talent, and astounding intellect, was his huge heart — his tremendous kindness, generosity, and compassion as an acting partner, colleague, and fellow traveler in a difficult world. My heartfelt condolences to his wife and family."

Just like Nathan, we will miss this man who was not only such a comic force of nature, but also such a gentle hearted family man.
