AceShowbiz - Robin Williams' "Mork & Mindy" co-star Pam Dawber claimed that the actor had sexually harassed her on the set of the 1970s-'80s comedy series. In an upcoming biography of the late comedian, Pam revealed that she did not mind it as it was part of Robin's sense of humor.
"I had the grossest things done to me by him," Pam admitted. "And I never took offense. 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."
In the new book written by New York Times journalist Dave Itzkoff, Pam revealed how Robin grabbed her bottom and breasts repeatedly during the four-year run of the show. He would also wrestle her down and break wind on her, Daily Mail reported.
"Mork & Mindy" director Howard Storm recalled the time the actor goosed an elderly actress who played Mindy's grandmother with a cane. He said, "I'm standing there watching this and I'm thinking, 'oh my god' and I just laughed. I thought she was going to turn and say, 'How dare you stick a cane in a woman's a**?' "
In other times, the actor would grab Pam's bottom or breasts only because he was bored. Howard stated, "He'd be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her a**. Or grab a breast. And we'd start again. I'd say, 'Robin, there's nothing in the script that says you grab Pam's a**.' And he'd say, 'Oh, OK.' "
The director commented on Robin's past behaviors, "There was nothing lascivious about it, in his mind. It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder."
Meanwhile, the show's producer Garry Marshall recalled, "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."
"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**s and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it," Pam continued. "It was the Seventies, after all."
Despite Robin's alleged sexual-harassment-related behavior, Pam said that he was "such a nice person" and had a "gigantic heart." She added that she had become his big sister that he never had. She admitted, "I really loved Robin and Robin really loved me. We just clicked."
The biography about Robin Williams will be released on May 15.
