Robin Williams proud of Travolta

robin_williamsRobin Williams doesn’t know how John Travolta coped after his son died. The actor — who starred in Old Dogs alongside John, whose 16-year-old son Jett passed away in January 2009 following a seizure while on holiday in the Bahamas — can’t imagine there is anything “tougher” than outliving your children. Referring to the Governors Ball, a party that took place after the Oscars ceremony in March, Williams said: “That’s the worst thing that can happen to you, to have a child die before you. It doesn’t get any tougher than that. There’s such a kindness to him. Sitting there at the Governors Ball, to hang with him for a minute, that was the best moment for me.” Williams says his friend has dealt with Jett’s passing with such dignity. He told USA Today: “He’s such a sweet man. He’s the human equivalent of a panda. It was good just to sit with him and say, ‘How are you doing, man?'”
