Robin Williams: 'I'm The Luckiest Man In The World'
Robin Williams has opened up about his marriage to new wife Susan Schneider, insisting he feels lucky to have found a woman who will put up with his antics.
The funnyman wed graphic designer Schneider on October 23rd after two years of dating, and they jetted off for a romantic honeymoon in Paris, France to celebrate their nuptials. Williams accepts that not everyone will understand why he chose to walk down the aisle for the third time, but for him, the decision was easy.
He says, "I'm the luckiest man in the world... Being with a comedian, living with a comedian, is like keeping a chimp for a pet. You know we're kind of cute but after a little a while, (you get thrown out). So if you find someone who goes, 'OK I really like you,' You go, 'You like me?' She's gorgeous and so sweet. Oh, she's beautiful."
And The Good Will Hunting star reveals their marriage ceremony in Napa Valley, California was simple, intimate and nothing short of memorable - thanks to a pair of pooping doves.
He continues, "It was kind of lovely. It was just a lot of friends. Very quiet. And then the vows, 'Do you take this woman?' 'Yes as often as possible.' It was just very sweet and basically just very personal.
"At one point they released doves, which was kind of wonderful. The weird thing is, they (the doves) get out (of their cage) and immediately they're like, OK, seat number four (poops). And people are dodging dove s**t like, 'No, no!' One butterfly flew into the frame and one bird just (ate it). But it was gorgeous, a really beautiful day."
Williams was previously married to Valarie Velardi and he split from his second wife, Marsha, in 2008, after 19 years of marriage.
