Robin Williams' "Adorable" Sexual Harrassment Antics

No, he didn't drug anyone. Nor, as far as I know, did he ever pull a Weinstein and share his, um, seed, with a potted plant. That said, his M.O. doesn't really sound all that "adorable," even if "it was the Seventies":
In a new book about the actor’s life titled Robin, the former actress, 66, said Williams was “such a nice person” who had a “gigantic heart,” according to excerpts obtained by The Daily Mail.
“I really loved Robin and Robin really loved me. We just clicked,” she reportedly said in the upcoming biography.
However, Dawber also opened up about Williams’ alleged sexual behavior on the show, which helped skyrocket the actor to fame. “I had the grossest things done to me by him. And I never took offense,” she reportedly said. “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.”
Dawber added, “Somehow he had that magic. 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 t*** and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it. It was the Seventies, after all.”
Mork & Mindy producer Howard Storm, who was also interviewed for the [new biographical] book, reportedly said, “He’d be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her a** . Or grab a br***t. And we’d start again.”

Storm allegedly added, “It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder.”

Garry Marshall, another producer, reportedly said that it was Williams’ mission to embarrass Dawber on set: “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.”
"It was the Seventies, after all": somehow, I don't think Harvey's attorneys will be able to make use of that one (Weinstein, after all, being nowhere near as "guileless" and "magical"--and dead--as Mork).
