'Mork & Mindy' Star Pam Dawber Says Robin Williams Groped And Flashed Her On Set
In a new book, Robin Williams' co-star in Mork & Mindy claims the late actor groped and flashed her.
Pam Dawber, who played Mindy in the 1970s sitcom said that Williams would frequently expose himself to her, grab her breasts and her bum, and even showed up to a scene totally naked.
The book, which is a biography of Dawber written by New York Times journalist Dave Itzkoff featured several revelations about Williams, as told by his co-star and reproduced in the Daily Mail.
She said: "I had the grossest things done to me by him,
"And I never took offence. I mean I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed. I think he probably did it to a lot of people... but it was so much fun."
Apparently Williams would fart on her, wrestle her, and once poked another female actor - supposed to be playing Mindy's grandmother - with a cane between the cheeks of her bottom.
But, despite all of this, Dawber is adamant that she wasn't offended by this and even enjoyed some of it.
Dawber continued: "If you put it on paper you would be appalled,
"But somehow he had this guileless little thing that he would do - those sparkly eyes. He'd look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden.
"And then he'd grab your tits and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it. It was the 70s, after all."
The show's director, Howard Storm, also gave his opinion on Williams' behaviour, commenting: "It was just Robin being Robin.
"He'd be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her ass. Or grab a breast. And we'd start again.
"I'd say: 'Robin, there's nothing in the script that says you grab Pam's ass.' And he'd say: 'Oh, OK.'''
Garry Marshall, who produced the show, said: "He would take all his clothes off, he would be standing there totally naked and she was trying to act. His aim in life was to make Pam Dawber blush."
Williams took his own life in 2014 after years of battling with mental health problems and addiction.
Despite the on-set incidents, Dawber said that she had a great relationship with Williams and said he had 'a gigantic heart'.
She said: "I really loved Robin and Robin really loved me, we just clicked."
While that's obviously lovely, it doesn't mean that you are free to get your dick out at work, nor to poke old ladies in the backside.
How times have changed.
