Robin Williams

Kid From 'Jumanji'

Now Open About HIS Depression

EXCLUSIVE

082114_bradley_pierce_launchRobin Williams is inspiring people even in death ... his young co-star from "Jumanji" has decided it's time for people like him suffering from depression to shed the shame.

Somehow our photog spotted Bradley Pierce -- who played Peter Shepard in the classic 1995 comedy -- Wednesday night in L.A.

Pierce said he's been motivated to talk openly about his battle with depression, which he's dealt with since he was 16.

Pierce also shared a great story about Williams from the set of "Jumanji" about filming the monsoon scene -- the only time he ever got aggressive.

His aggressiveness on set, was him protecting overworked children. Too cool.

whoever wrote this headline is an insensitive IDIOT. Suffering from depression is NOT SHAMEFUL! What a great way to further put someone down that suffers with this.

Glad Robin Williams stepped up to the director who was probably sitting something warm and dry, while the cast were in the cold water.

We still missing him.

I can see how a lot of child celebrities get depressed when the calls stop coming and you get older

One of my fav movies as a kid!!! I love it today and I'm very happy to hear that even a tragedy can bring something positive out in others. Depression can break the strongest man alive and no one should suffer and be ashamed of opening up. I wish him a healthy future.
