The Monty Python star has praised his fellow comedy legend for his ''humility'', and insisted while the late actor - who committed suicide on Monday (11.08.14) - was so talented he could have been justified having ''a huge ego'' but didn't.
He told The Observer newspaper: ''Above all, what I remember about Robin was his humility.
''He could be funny as no one else could be funny - like he had another monumental voice telling him to be funny - let it rip!
''He could have had a huge ego, but he didn't.''
Terry joins a number of stars and fans around the world paying tribute to the comic following his death - which is believed to be caused by suicide via asphyxiation - aged 63, including filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who directed him in 'Hook' in 1991.
He said: ''Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him. He was a pal and I can't believe he's gone.''
Meanwhile, Jackie Chan has admitted despite never working with Robin, he was still saddened by his passing.
He recently explained: ''I didn't work with him. I met him for the first time at the Oscars a long time ago. I was standing in the green room and at that time my English was not very good. I see so many people in front of me and suddenly [I hear], 'Jackie Chan! [I'm a] big fan!'
''I didn't respond because it was Robin Williams. [I said], 'I'm a big fan, great to see you.' And then he was gone ... I don't really know him, but I think today I've lost my best friend.''
