Pierce Brosnan Recalls Working With Robin Williams on 'Mrs. Doubtfire,' Shares Epic Flashback Photo
By Jackie Willis
After all these years, Pierce Brosnan is still in awe of Robin Williams.
The men worked together on the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfireand on Throwback Thursday, Brosnan decided to share a memory with his Instagram followers from his time on set and pay tribute to his late co-star. The 64-year-old actor posted a photo from a scene where Stu (Brosnan) and Mrs. Doubtfire (Williams) are hanging out by the pool with Miranda Hillard (Sally Field) and family.
"I remember this day like it was yesterday," Brosnan captioned the image. "It was a San Francisco morning on the set of Mrs. Doubtfire -- a drive by fruiting. I thought we would be there all morning trying to get the shot, [but] Robin nailed it on the second take."
Just days after news broke that the Oscar winner had died, ET spoke with Brosnan, who shared his favorite memory of Williams. "When I went up to do Mrs. Doubtfire in San Francisco all those years ago, the very first day of shooting they say to me, 'Do you want to meet Robin?' I said, 'Sure, I'd love to.' I mean, I was a huge fan of the man's work," he recalled. "I went into the makeup trailer and Robin was sitting there in a pair of boots and his hairy legs, and a Hawaiian shirt, and his hairy arms, and there he sat, but with Mrs. Doubtfire's head on. So, that was my first encounter with Robin Williams."
