Entertainment Weekly states: In this week’s issue, Entertainment Weekly looks back at the career highlights and personal lows of the Oscar-winning actor. Williams, who died in an apparent suicide on Monday at age 63, struggled for much of his life with both substance abuse and depression. EW‘s tribute includes a guide of his 10 most memorable performances, including his breakout role in the 1982 John Irving adaptation The World According to Garp, which EW film critic Chris Nashawaty dubs the actor’s greatest: “It’s whimsical, weird, idiosyncratic, humane, charming, and sad.”
