The actor had recently penned an emotional letter about his battle with the disease. He said,
For the first time, I felt what ‘freedom’ truly means. It felt like an accomplishment. As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it. My confidence in the intelligence of the cosmos became absolute. I feel as if it has entered every cell of mine…Time will tell if it stays, but that is how I feel as of now.
