The Hollywood legend had some interesting things to say on the issue of whether Heaven and Hell existed, and behind his humorous remarks, there was a hidden and poetic form of spirituality.


The late Oscar-winner star Robin Williams left an unfillable void in performing arts when he passed away in August 2014 at 63. His energetic acting style, inventiveness, and versatility made him a unique and unforgettable performer.

Williams had a rich and interesting career, starting as a comedian and evolving through the years to become a renowned dramatic actor who wasn’t afraid of playing the most challenging and touching characters, reported Liftable.

His wide variety of films appealed to the most heterogeneous audiences, and his suicide was so shocking and heartbreaking for people all around the globe. To try and make sense of this tragedy, many turned to the many interviews he gave.

The Patch Adams star was known for his spontaneity, and in his interviews, we can also notice how much of an active and reflective thinker he was, as he shared little insights of his internal world throughout the years.


James Lipton interviewed Williams for his TV show Inside the Actors Studio in 2001, and as is the custom in the program he was asked about what he hoped to find in Heaven if there was one.

‘If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?’ Lipton asked him.


‘There’s seating near the front. The concert begins at 5. It’ll be Mozart, Elvis, and one of your choosing. Or, if Heaven exists, to know that there is laughter,’ was Williams response.


Earlier, in 1998, while promoting his film of that year What Dreams May Come, which deals with the afterlife, Williams shared some of his views on Heaven and Hell.


‘I believe in Heaven and Hell. I’ve had coming attractions of them in my dreams,’ he explained.

‘There are also places right here on Earth that, if they’re not Heaven, they’re a pretty good start. Places like Thailand, Hawaii, and Montana are gloriously beautiful,’ Williams added.
