Mila Kunis recently starred with Robin Williams in one of his last films called “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.”
On the first day of shooting, she was interviewed by Esquire and spoke about a past experience she had with Williams.
When she was around 16 years old, Kunis was working on “That 70s Show.”
The comedy was shooting on the same CBS lot where Robin Williams was also filming a TV show. One of Kunis’ co-stars, Kurtwood Smith, was a friend of Williams, so he took Kunis to meet the man himself.
Williams was made up like the elephant man for his role, which I’m sure was unsettling for the young Kunis, but he gave her some amazing advice during their brief encounter.
He said to Mila in regards to her role on “That 70s Show,”
Remember this moment. Remember this because things like this don’t happen very often. Remember this time.
It’s a simple message, but one that we would all do well to remember. When Kunis told Williams about this memory of hers, Williams reiterated his point by saying,
Today, right now, at this very moment, step back and appreciate it.
We need to take the time to appreciate what life has put before us. We need to cherish the moment. We need to seize the day.
This advice is all the more vital in the wake of Williams’ death.
