Billy Connolly Says Robin Williams "Tried To Say Goodbye" During Their Final Phone Call
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Scottish actor/comedian Billy Connolly reminisced about his final phone call with longtime friend Robin Williams, who he described as "a complicated man, but a beautiful person. He was a joy." Connolly told The Telegraph he thinks Williams "tried to say goodbye" during the conversation that took place shortly before Williams took his own life.
The two actors would talk on the phone and "compare notes" "about Parkinson's a lot" (both were diagnosed with the disease), and regularly told each other that they loved each other.
Oof. Giving me goosebumps. What a chilling and gut-wrenchingly bittersweet last conversation to have with a friend.
