“The truth is I ripped open some wounds that had been healing for some time. And I didn’t want to. But I knew it was right for the moment,” he told British GQ.

He added that while you never get over the death of a parent, the film helped him to acknowledge it.

“There are wounds that are never going to be totally healed. It would probably make for a better story if it was some emotional thing that I hadn’t dealt with ... When we face the death of a parent, you sometimes feel regret that you didn’t fully embrace what you had.” He said.
