Esquire interviews Hader about his thoughts on Robin Williams suicide.
I don’t know my thoughts on this issue. I met Robin Williams a few times, and he was a beautiful guy. It’s a disease. I had a friend in high school who committed suicide, and it’s a disease that’s hard for people to manage. It was a total surprise. Milo, in the movie, is different. His is more a cry for help than an actual disease. He’s just looking for some sort of attention. I think it’s much different than what Robin Williams went through.
