美国传奇喜剧明星罗宾·威廉姆斯在家中身亡,警方初步怀疑是自杀。威廉姆斯去世的噩耗传出后,好莱坞各界人士纷纷表达对他的哀悼,美国总统奥巴马也通过声明的方式,表达了对这位传奇巨星的悼念之情。

“罗宾·威廉姆斯是一位飞行员,一位博士,一位精灵,一位保姆,一位总统,一位专家,一位拥有奇幻魔力的彼得·潘。”在这份悼念声明中,美国总统奥巴马对威廉姆斯极尽赞美之词:“他就是一切,不过他首先是一位仁者。他就像一个外星人一样进入了我们的生活,而当离去的时候,他已经触摸到了人类精神的每一个元素。”

奥巴马在这份声明中继续写道:“他让我们开怀大笑,他让我们嚎啕大哭,他将自己无可限量的天赋,慷慨的给予那些最需要的人——从我们驻扎在国外的部队,到走在街道上的每一个普通人。奥巴马和家人向罗宾的家人和朋友们致以最深切的哀悼,每个人都会以自己的方式来感谢罗宾·威廉姆斯。”

President Barack Obama has led tributes to US actor and comedian Robin Williams, who has been found dead, aged 63, in an apparent suicide.

Marin County Police in California said Williams was pronounced dead at his home after officials responded to an emergency call around noon local time.

Williams was famous for films such as Good Morning Vietnam and won an Oscar for his role in Good Will Hunting.

His publicist said he had been "battling severe depression".

President Obama was one of many offering condolences to the actor's family saying: "Williams arrived in our lives as an alien - but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit.

"He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most - from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalised on our own streets."

In the past Williams had talked, and even joked, about his struggles with alcohol and drugs.

He had recently returned to a rehabilitation centre to "fine-tune" his sobriety, the Los Angeles Times reported in July.

The local Sheriff's office said Williams was found unconscious and not breathing at his home near Tiburon, north of San Francisco.

"At this time, the Sheriff's Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made," police said in a statement.

In a statement, Williams' wife, Susan Schneider, said she was "utterly heartbroken".

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken," she said.

"On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."
