LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Hollywood actor-director Ben Affleck said Tuesday he was "heartbroken" by the apparent suicide of his Good Will Hunting co-star Robin Williams.

Williams, 63, was found dead with a belt around his neck Monday at his home outside San Francisco, police said, stunning his worldwide legion of fans and colleagues.

"Heartbroken. Thanks chief - for your friendship and for what you gave the world," said Affleck on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

"Robin had a ton of love in him. He personally did so much for so many people. He made Matt and my dreams come true," he added, referring to Matt Damon, another Good Will Hunting star.
