According to a Huffington Post article, one of the requirements for hiring Robin was that those companies had to find jobs for homeless people in the production.

The clause was reportedly part of Robin's rider, a document that contains a list of actors and actresses' demands when hired for an event, such as a film or television production.

Generally, actors, actresses and musicians often make wild and outrageous demands in their riders.

For instance, the legendary rock group Van Halen wanted all brown M&Ms removed from their bowls of the chocolate candies. Rapper Jay-Z demands seven dressing rooms. While singer Mary J. Blige has to have her own personal, private toilet, according to Insider.

Brian posted about the clause on his website, writing he was "very surprised by what I found."

"He actually had a requirement that, for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work," according to the Huffington Post.

Brian went on to add that after reading Robin's philanthropic rider, he "never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way," according to RadarOnline.

While we can't confirm that this rider existed in Robin’s contract, we know he had a heart for the homeless.

Back in 1990, Robin spoke in front of the United States Senate on homelessness, according to Newsweek. He supported a program aimed at minimizing homelessness.

He also states "the problem cannot be denied anymore."
