Mara Wilson, who starred with Robin Williams in "Mrs. Doubtfire" when she was just 6 in 1993, is attempting to cope with the loss of the beloved actor.
"Everybody grieves in their own way. When I heard about Robin’s death, I was shocked, confused angry, regretful, and above all, sad," Mara, now 27, wrote on her website.
"All I wanted was to talk to my family and friends and cry. A few news outlets asked if I would be willing to talk about him on the air, and while I usually like interviews, I knew I wasn’t in a good place to do that. I still (a whole three days later) don’t want to do any," she explained.
The late actor's former co-star might not be speaking much about the loss anytime soon, but she plans to share some of her experiences with Williams via her blog.
"It’s too soon, and I need my own time to process it all. I will, however, be sharing some of my memories about him on this blog sometime soon," she wrote.
Adding, "While Robin and I had not talked in a few years, there is no question he had a great impact on my life. He was as warm and talented as everyone says, and a joy to be around. It’s as if my favorite teacher died."
Robin, who was 63, died on Monday. On Thursday, the actor's widow revealed that Robin was dealing with the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.
