According to Pam Dawber, her Mork and Mindy co-star, the late Robin Williams, would often be naked in front of her and even grab her breasts! However, surprisingly enough, the woman claims she was not upset about any of that.
Pam explained that Robin Williams was such a likable person that he would get away with many things that today would be considered sexual harassment.
In a brand new bio titled simply ‘Robin’ and written by Dave Itzkoff, Pam claims Willims would grope her and grab her breasts, but she does not see it as sexual harassment because ‘it was the Seventies!’
‘I had the grossest things done to me – by him. And I never really took offense. I mean I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed… I think he probably did it to a lot of other people…but it was actually so much fun,’ Pam explained.
‘Somehow he had this magic. If you put it on paper, you’d be appalled. But somehow he had this guileless little thing he would do – those sparkly eyes. He would look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden. And then he would grab your t*ts and run away. And somehow he got away with it. It was the Seventies, after all,’ she added.
The sitcom that ran from 1978-1982 helped Williams reach stardom.
His co-star has nothing but great memories of working alongside the legend, and she told the author that in time they became so close that she felt like a big sister to Robin.
‘I really loved Robin, and Robin really loved me. We just clicked,’ she gushed, adding that he was ‘such a nice person,’ with a ‘gigantic heart.’
Garry Marshall, the show’s producer, confirmed Pam’s claims, saying: ‘He’d take all of his clothes off, he would be standing there naked as she was trying to act. His aim in life was to make Pam Dawber blush.’
Director Howard Storm also shared with the author that ‘He would be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he’d just turn and grab her a**. Or grab a breast. And we would start again. I would say, ‘Robin, there is nothing in the script that says you grab Pam’s a**.’ And he would say: ‘Oh, ok.’ There was nothing lascivious about it, in his mind. It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it’d be funny. He could get away with murder.’
