Robin Williams' Daughter Still Can't Watch Her Late Father's Films As She Worries They'd Be Too "Self-destructive".
The world was left shocked when the American actor committed suicide in 2014, leaving behind his wife Susan Schneider, as well as his children Zak, Zelda and Cody from previous relationships. Zelda, 26, has since began to pave her own path in the world of showbiz, and she has taken inspiration from her father's constant kindness.
“A lot of what I try to do is interact with the world the way he did,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “He didn't care who someone was, he did a lot of work with the homeless, he did a lot of work with people in prison... and he was always kind. It meant a lot to him, so I kind of hope to, if nothing else, be that.
“I think once I reach a place where I'm more comfortable, I'll happily watch (all of his films) again. Right now, I think that would be a bit self-destructive, in a sense. It's been nice to kind of work on myself and my family and the people who are here.”

Anyhoo, Aquamarine is a mermaid movie, or rather, "the mermaid movie," as my daughter now calls it, about two best friends (Julia's niece Emma Roberts and teen singer JoJo) who find a lovely (and equally hormonally teenaged) mermaid washed into the oceanside pool at the motel run by Claire's (Roberts) family. With Hailey (JoJo), they teach the newly-legged Aquamarine (Sara Paxton) about land-based life, while she teaches the gawky girls how to use starfish as earrings. But Aqua's on a quest. In keeping with all mermaid movies, she's looking for love. And she figures the first guy she sees, a hunky lifeguard, will be it.
