Lisa also remembered a moment when the Good Will Hunting actor stood up for her. At the time, she said she had received a letter from her high school informing her not to come back as it was “too difficult” for her to work with her remotely while she was on the set was.
According to the 42-year-old writer, Robin wrote a letter to the school “asking them to reconsider.”
Ultimately, Lisa revealed that high school refused to invite her back. But despite her decision, the native Canadian said the screen legend’s gesture really moved her.
“What I love about this story, and what I love about Robin, is the fact that he would do this for someone,” she said. “That he would do anything. That he would take the time to realize that this would be important.”
She added, “And even if it didn’t work, someone had to get up. And that’s what he did for me.”
