Wow, it seems like Robin Williams inspired just about everybody he met!
In a recent interview, the lovely Mila Kunis remembered her first and one of the most inspirational meetings with the late Robin. The actor was on the set of That '70s Show and while there he was kind enough to give Mila a valuable piece of advice.
"He said, remember this moment. Remember this because things like this don't happen very often. Remember this time.' Having somebody of Robin Williams' stature tell me to just acknowledge something meant so much. He didn't mentor me. He just said, Step back and appreciate this. You're having an amazing time.'"
Robin's words really struck a chord with the actress because she never forgot his sage advice:
"So many times you meet people they don't impact you. You meet them and they're gracious and they're nice…and then there are sometimes when you meet somebody and they say one thing and for the rest of your life you carry that one thing and they don't even know that they impacted your life."
Years later, when Mila and Robin reunited on the set of the movie The Angriest Man In Brooklyn, she reminded her co-star of his wise words.
The actor responded:
"It stands true. Today, right now, at this very moment, step back and appreciate it."
While it's unbelievably sad to lose such a wise and compassionate person like Robin, it's comforting to hear about all the lives he impacted.
