Robin Williams got married again and not to his jumpoff this time

We don’t gossip much about manic comedian Robin Williams, 60, but he divorced his wife of 19 years, Marsha Garces, in 2008. The National Enquirer reported that Williams’ cheating that drove his wife to file for divorce, and that he was dating a 27 year-old artist from Connecticut and paying her $10,000 a month to rent an apartment in Manhattan at the time. Williams’ wife shouldn’t be surprised that he was stepping out on her. She worked as a nanny to his son from his first wife when he got her pregnant and then married her in 1989. Anyway Williams just got married for the third time, and it wasn’t to the young artist. This time he married a 47 year-old graphic designer who tended to him during his recovery from heart surgery. It sounds kind of sweet actually and they look really good together.

Robin Williams exchanged vows with graphic designer Susan Schneider on Sunday at the Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple met shortly before the actor and comedian, 60, had heart surgery in 2009, according to Britain’s The Guardian, which also reports that Schneider helped nurse him back to health.

It’s the third trip down the aisle for Williams, who has three children – Zachary, 28, Zelda, 22, and Cody, 19 – from his first two marriages. His previous wife, Marsha, filed for divorce in 2008.

Well good for them. I hope he shaved off that giant white beard for his wedding. It really ages him. I think he’s sporting it for a role, though. Williams plays a foul-mouthed tiger (really) in a Broadway play called “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.”

    Everytime I see him I think of that herpes lawsuit. GROSS!!

  2. kazoo says:

    i love him as an actor but i think he’s batshit crazy.

    i remember this red carpet interview he did. his daughter was his date…he was rambling on about the weirdest off topic stuff. that poor kid looked so embarrassed and like she’d rather be anywhere else.

  3. Kaboom says:

    He’s a hairy dude, I guess he could grow that beard out in about a week tops!

  4. gee says:

    He seems nuts, but sweet.

  5. Dibba says:

    Yeah, from what I’ve heard about him he’s a real psycho, mean, etc.

  6. Jayna says:

    I think his marriage fell apart before his affair. His alcoholism killed the marriage. Robin is brilliant. Did anyone see the One Stop Photo (or whatever it was called)? He blew me away. So creepy.

    I don’t know how she gets naked with him. He has enough hair on his body to be a bear.

  7. Emily says:

    He’s a great actor, but in real life he seems as crazy as a Scientologist.

  8. Acorn Paste says:

    He looks so old!! This is not the Robin Williams I remember 🙁

    Jumanji is still my favorite RW film.

  9. the original bellaluna says:

    I really, really like him as an actor and comedian, and I think since he quit drinking he’s probably a pretty likable human being.

    If you haven’t seen Weapons of Self-Destruction, SEE IT. It. Is. HYSTERICAL!

  10. Zelda says:

    re: all the “crazy” comments:

    Robin Williams is known to be bi-polar. That is a tough disease to keep in check, especially in the long-term.

    He’d probably be wild, anyway, but he does have a disease that affects mood and behaviour.

  11. Quest says:

    I think he is nuts but I love him as an actor. This is a kinda cute story. I wish them well.

  12. aenflex says:

    So odd. I love him, I love that he’s tortured and kind and slighlty virtriolic. I love so many of the people he has played. It’s not cool that for these reasons I am willing to forgive his transgressions.

  13. CP says:

    They definitely do not look like Mork and Mindy.

  14. RocketMerry says:

    Aw. I always liked him. Which is why I always hope no ugly truth ever comes out about him.

  15. TXCinderella says:

    He is a terrific actor with a great range. He can play just about any kind of character. Hopefully this will be the love he has been missing.

  16. poopie says:

    @the truth fairy – i thought the same thing !

  17. JaneWonderfalls says:

    He’d be knocking someone else up, Plus Robin Williams plays the same character in almost ever film I’ve seen him in. A paper bag has more range than him! Plus his wife should not be surprised she banged him while he was married so I’m kind of curious what the shock was. Just because he’s a hairy, ugly, gimmicky actor does not mean we should overlook the fact that he’s a sleaze ball. I’m quite sure if this was Ashton Kutcher people would be letting him have it! What’s with the hypocrisy on CB now days, this use to be a pretty cool site!

  18. meilamon says:

    The only thing worse than having to endure one of his movies would be having to be around him in real life. His new wife is gorgeous though-good luck to her.

  19. madpoe says:

    Couldn’t be happier for him, I like him alot, always have always will. I didn’t know he was bipolar. Hope he’s ok.

  20. serena says:

    Oh Williams. I don’t care if he’s a douche he is one of the greatest actor in Hollywood!

  21. Mari says:

    @Jayna- True, but having a dollar for every hair doesn’t hurt.

  22. serena says:

    @JaneWanderfalls.. You’re comparing Ashton the-nobody-douche to Williams? There’s no story, sorry girl.

  23. balkan music says:

    Of course it’s “never to late to find love”…if you’re a man who is also rich and famous. LOL!

  24. Audrey says:

    I’ve always had a crush on him and I like hairy men – so masculine. @ The Truth Fairy – was he the actor that was sued for herpes???

  25. Nev says:

    love him too…what is this herpes story?

  26. I think most comedians are very unhappy and disturbed people.

  27. Delta Juliet says:

    I like him in movies but he must be EXHAUSTING to be around 24/7.

  28. Maritza says:

    They make a nice couple, he looks so good in the photo with the white tie. I think he is so funny.

  29. Kim says:

    Really? At his age (and her) marrying for third time? At least she is closer to his age than his last fling.

  30. Crystalline says:

    Hm, didn’t know he was bipolar. That actually explains a lot and could explain the cheating as well (manic phases vary for everyone, but maybe his risky behavior is sex? Something to consider, although we by no means no the full story either way).

  31. Emily says:

    @JaneWonderfalls, go watch One Hour Photo. The character he plays in that is no where near his usual manic characters.

  32. Amy says:

    Robin Williams is a terrific actor, I’ve always loved him and always will. Obviously his personal life is messy but then it seems to be that way for most brilliant actors. As for him being bipolar–that wouldn’t surprise me. Whenever he’s on talk shows for interviews, he is literally always bouncing off the wall with crazy energy and won’t stop with all the impersonation voices he can do. The host always has trouble reining him in!

  33. KatScorp says:

    In addition to ‘One Hour Photo’, I highly recommend ‘Patch Adams’, ‘Insomnia’, ‘What Dreams May Come’ – and Robin’s most recent drama – ‘Worlds Greatest Dad’.

    Robin is an extrodinary actor who can tackle drama as easily as comedy. Yes, his latest comedies sucked (‘RV’ and the Travolta one), but ‘Worlds Greatest Dad’ was a bit hit with the CRITICS, even if you’ve never heard of it. Track it down if you truly don’t appreciate Robin Williams as an actor.

  34. dahlia says:

    He was today in Paris, at the Musée de l’Orangerie, he created quit a stir. And he’s shaved now!

  35. Trashaddict says:

    Actually I liked him best in Dead Again, it was a bit part but between him and Andy Garcia they almost stole the show.
    Too bad about shaving the beard, interrupted his metamorphosis into the crazy old Scotsman.
    All I have to say about the marriage is, “nannies take warning”!
