Howard Stern has a huge regret – one says "brings him in tears".
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone for the magazine's cover story, the shock jock said he wanted to apologize to the late actor and comedian Robin Williams for the way he treated the Mrs. Doubtfire star during an interview on his radio show, The Howard Stern Show, in the years & # 39; 90. Williams died in 2014 at age 63.
"In my mind, I knew all the answers. The public will not stand still for something that lasts more than 30 seconds. All they want is to be shocked and indignant. That's where I was in my life," he began.
"I also have a regret for Robin Williams who haunts me. I was so angry with the world. I love Robin Williams, and yet, if he entered my studio, I had to behave as if I didn't love him. you & # 39 ;. "
Stern, 65, said he was more concerned about the attention he remained on himself than on his guest – which, in this case, was Williams. Stern said he had targeted Williams, particularly for a cheating scandal at the time.
"I was a child. I want every listener. I want everyone to focus on me. You won't be more fun than me. You're not going to come into my studio and steal the moment from me. That's what I was. Robin Williams, "My God, you're here", and celebrating an incredible talent and beauty of that guy's career, he comes in and I start, "Hey, you're fucking your nanny," he said.
"Bam, mazza. Calm him right in the fucking head. A hole. I, not him. And my audience rejoices me because who does it?
Asked what "did (he) change", Stern had a frank response: psychotherapy.
"I learned that there was a way to talk about what was going on in Robin Williams's personal life. I could express the beauty of Robin Williams. Who knows what he would have revealed? Who knows what impressions he would have? it could have been that moment, "he said.
"Some people in my audience would say:" Friend, don't kiss anyone is a **. It's not about kissing someone to **. This is & # 39; Sh * t, I love this guy & # 39. I want to tell him what he did for me when I was alone and couldn't find a friend. If I saw him in a movie or even just Mork & Mindy, he just did some damn pleasure in my life, which is the whole reason why I went on the radio. I wanted to bring pleasure to people ".
Stern revealed that he tried to reach Williams at some point to apologize. But it was too late.
"I had this idea that I have to call him and apologize. I started to implement it and see if he would accept my call, but he committed suicide," he said. "I get chills when I tell you."
Separately, Stern revealed this week The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that President Trump was "one of the five best guests of all time" on his radio show.
"He was wild every time," he said.
