Sally Field Says Mrs. Doubtfire Costar Robin Williams “Should be Growing Old Like Me”

Sally Field Hates that Robin Williams ‘isn’t here anymore.’

Sally Margaret Field is a veteran Hollywood actress known for her extensive work on screen and stage.

Throughout her career, Field, 76, has won several awards for her outstanding acting – her accolades include two Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, three Primetime Emmys, two British Academy Film Awards, a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2014, and many others.

Her notable movies include 80 for Brady, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Flying Nun, Forest Gump, Eye for an Eye, Spoiler Alert, Norma Rae, Sybil, The Amazing Spiderman, and Places in the Heart.

Recently Sally received the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) Lifetime Achievement Award.

During the Red Carpet Live Show, Sally told PEOPLE Magazine that she misses her former costar, the late Robin Williams, and wishes he should have been alive and growing old just like her.

“What you think about immediately is Robin. There isn’t a moment of it that’s not filled with my love and joy at being in his presence. I mean, Robin was Robin. He was everything he seemed to be: a generous, loving, sweet, geniously talented man,” she said.

“We all miss him. He should be growing old like me, for God’s sakes. I hate it that he isn’t here.”

The Dead Poets Society actor died of suicide in 2014.

“Robin, aged 63, was found dead inside his home in Paradise Cay, California on August 11, 2014, with the final autopsy report concluding that his death was a suicide resulting from asphyxia due to hanging,” per Daily Mail.

The pair played exes in Mrs. Doubtfire, which also starred Pierce Brosnan, Mara Wilson, Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, and Harvey Fierstein.

In another interview with Lisa Wilkinson in 2018, the award-winning actress noted that Robin used to get pissed at her for not laughing at his jokes, no matter how funny they were.

“What drove him absolutely crazy is that he could never make me laugh. He would never break me up.”

“He had endless energy. And he’d want to do take after take after take because every take he would want to do something different,” she said about Williams.
