Why Doing What Robin Williams Did in "Mrs. Doubtfire" Doesn't Work in Real Life
Now I don't know if my English accent gave it away, or if it was the wig, or fat suit, but she knew right away. My ex-wife punched me in the face which sent me backwards and I tripped down the stairs of the stoop. She locked the door, called the police, and I ran. You can't imagine how uncomfortable it is to run all dressed up like an elderly overweight English lady. The stares I got from people on the street were intense.
The incident was cited in our next court hearing and I was denied full custody and placed on probation. So just a lesson for the kids out there, don't try the stuff you see in Robin Williams movies. Specifically Robin Williams movies. I don't know what it is about those films, but they all have a particularly unrealistic angle to them that usually ends up with you in court, whether it's breaking into a hospital to be a clown doctor or designing a synthetic substance known as "Flubber", it's all bad news.
