Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robin Williams, Instagram


Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of many whose hearts are broken today, as it marks the one-year anniversary of Robin Williams' death. But the actress, who co-starred in The Crazy Ones with the legendary comedian, honored him on Instagram in an amazing way.

Sharing a photo of the Boston bench where Williams sat alongside Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, Gellar used a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote to summarize the all of the amazing qualities Williams brought into the world.

"'To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded'

"#Emerson You succeeded RW #RobinWilliams," she added.

The emotional picture also features the famous Good Will Hunting-Damon quote, "Sorry guys, I went to see about a girl."

Williams played Gellar's father on the CBS sitcom, which aired for one season. In 2013, both celebs sat down with E! News to talk about their show and what it was like to work with young actors. Even in a sit-down interview, Williams knew how to make us laugh at the drop of a hat.

"[Our young actors] have taught me lots on my phone," Gellar said in the interview. "Every day I feel like I learn something new on my phone from someone much younger."

"I learned just how to turn it on, which was wonderful," Williams joked.

Gellar and Williams also joked about the fate their show, which they didn't know at the time, and said they would continue to show up to work despite a potential cancelation.

"We'll just show up [yelling], 'I don't care! I'll shoot in on my phone!'" Williams said in his best old-man accent. "Hi, welcome to The Crazy One."
