Robin Williams is regarded as one of the greatest comedians of all time. William’s first major role as the irreverent military disc jockey Adrian Cronauer in Good Morning, Vietnam (1987) earned him his first Academy Award nomination. As his career progressed, Williams challenged himself with both comedic and serious roles. In 1997, he portrayed Dr. Sean Macguire, a psychiatrist for a troubled but mathematically gifted young man (played by Matt Damon) in Good Will Hunting. He won his first Academy Award with that role.

Robin Williams had diverse performances during his acting career, which made up a long list of awards and nominations. Many of his roles and films become iconic, recognized by both critics and audiences. Adults love William’s films and young adults can’t also keep their eyes off his performances. A uniquely impressive actor! And, interestingly, they found out things from his films that other viewers missed. Below are 20 astonishing details we’ve collected from r/MovieDetails. Are you a fan of William’s films? Scroll down and check them out!

#2 In Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), the poolside bartender is played by an actor credited under the nickname Dr. Toad, but his real name was Robert Todd Williams, and he was Robin Williams’ older brother. A vintner by trade in real-life, this was his only film appearance.

#3 The directors of ‘Aladdin’ (1992) wrote the part of the Genie specifically for Robin Williams. As a tribute, at the end of the movie, the Genie appears in the same yellow Hawaiian shirt and Goofy hat that Robin Williams wore in the Disney’s short film ‘Back to Neverland’ (1989).

#5 In Good Will Hunting (1997), Robin William’s painting alludes to the idea that both Robin William’s character and Will are both enduring “”storms”” in their lives. After the movie’s resolution, we see a similar shot of a boat and ominous figure; however, in still water this time.

#6 In Hook (1991), none of the young actors playing the lost boys knew who Peter would pass his sword on to. So when he handed it to Thud butt, their stunned reactions were genuine. Only Robin Williams and Stephen Spielberg knew the outcome of the scene before filming it.

#9 In Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), the scene where Mrs. Sellner comes to inspect Daniel’s apartment and the icing on Mrs. Doubtfire’s face is melting off was not intentional. The heat from the set lights melted the icing on his face and Robin Williams improvised the bulk of that scene.

#10 In Good Will Hunting (1997), Robin William’s character, Sean, tells Will Hunting a story of how his wife woke herself up from farting too loud. Robin Williams improvised the story, and the cameraman found it so funny, you can see the camera shaking.

#11 In “Good Morning, Vietnam” (1987), Robin Williams’ character rips a story off the teletype about two Marines who are court-martialed for stealing a plane and trying to bomb Hanoi. This is a reference to the plot of Stephen Coonts’ novel “Flight of the Intruder” (1986), made in a movie in 1991.

#12 In Good Will Hunting (1997), the last line was ad-libbed by Robin Williams (when Sean reads Will’s note and says: “Son of a bitch. He stole my line”). They had numerous takes trying different lines every time till he said that and it stuck.

#13 The watercolour painting of a rowboat in Good Will Hunting (1997), was actually painted by the movie’s director, Gus Van Sant.

#16 In Aladdin (1992), Robin Williams plays both the Genie and the Peddler, who sings “Arabian Nights” in the beginning of the film. In Aladdin (2019), Will Smith plays the Genie, and the Mariner, who fills basically the same role. In a scrapped concept for the original, they were even the same person.
