While talking about the change in climate and to save the planet, the actor got emotional and teary-eyed.

ANI tweeted the video in which the actor is seen saying, “Don’t hold back from being an empath. Don’t be afraid of shedding your tears. Feel it, feel the full extent of everything. It’s good. It gives us strength. It does. And this is not a performance.”

She further said, “At around 3 in the morning, this news alert came on my phone for a very big player, NBA player, who I followed for a while. His chopper crashing in California disturbed me. It really upset me. There are different things that upset us on different days, but we take care of ourselves. I was overwhelmed because my blood pressure was low.”
