A 'Heartbroken' Ben Affleck Opens Up About His 'Chief' Robin Williams
Ben Affleck has paid tribute to his Good Will Hunting co-star, the late Robin Williams, who passed away unexpectedly at his California home yesterday.
The Argo director shared a message with his fans on his Facebook page earlier today.
"Heartbroken. Thanks chief - for your friendship and for what you gave the world. Robin had a ton of love in him. He personally did so much for so many people. He made Matt and my dreams come true. What do you owe a guy who does that? Everything. May you find peace my friend. #RobinWilliams"

Affleck and close pal Matt Damon co-wrote and starred in Hunting with Williams in 1997. The film earned Damon and Affleck an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, while Williams nabbed an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, his first and only Oscar win.
In the movie, Robin plays Dr. Sean Maguire, a therapist struggling to cope with the death of his wife.
