“He used to jog in the hills and ride his bike around town or be seen at Woodlands Market. But the past few months, he’s been reclusive,” a source who knew the Oscar-winning actor told HollywoodLife.com. “Last time I saw him, about a few weeks ago, he didn’t look too good.”
How very sad. “His skin was a little wrinkly and he looked a little too thin,” our source added. “I didn’t think much of it. It’s Robin, he’s quirky. Maybe I should have, because he didn’t look so good.”
