'Gone too soon' - hint of sadness at premiere as Mel mourns Robin

There was a touch of sadness at the premiere of Expendables 3 in Los Angeles where Mel Gibson paid tribute to the late Robin Williams.

"The thing that struck me about him is he had a great heart. He was very compassionate. But he was also like a benchmark. He did what he did the best. Not only did he excel in that field, but he crossed over into all sorts of other fields as well. He's gone too soon," he said.

Mel was joined on the red carpet by co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger and models Carmen Electra (left) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (right).
