Robin Williams

Twentieth Century Fox Corporation

Today is a bittersweet day.

It would have been funnyman Robin Williams' 64th birthday, and to honor that day we're taking a look back at his life in photos. The iconic comedian made a name for himself on TV when he got his start on Mork & Mindy and continued to make his fans laugh out loud for the duration of his career, starring in movies such as Jumanji and Mrs. Doubtfire.

Although he was best known for his comedic skills, who could forget some of his more dramatic roles, including Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting? Williams knew how to have fun on and off the screen, especially when it came to his children Zelda Williams, Zak Williams and Cody Alan Williams.

Even though he has passed away, Williams hasn't totally left us. He appears in the forthcoming dramaBoulevard, in which he plays Nolan, a middle-aged man stuck in a rut and a passionless marriage to a woman. His life is changed after he meets a young male prostitute, Leo, played by Roberto Aguire. He pays him solely for his company, but then connects with him emotionally and finally embraces his true sexuality.

Boulevard won't be the Oscar winner's final film, either. He will also appear in A Merry Friggin' Christmas and lends his voice to Absolutely Anything.

In honor of the late Williams' birthday, take a look back at his life in photos.
