The actor, who voices Olaf in the “Frozen” movies, addressed his fears and anxieties about the public health crisis that has now killed more than 10,000 people worldwide and sent millions more into lockdown.
In the heartfelt clip on Instagram, Gad said he was going to cry by himself but then thought it was “important for everybody to understand that we’re all going through so much uncertainty right now. We’re gonna get through it.’”
Gad, who has two kids, acknowledged he is “emotional because I hate seeing our kids deprived of their normal lifestyles and not being able to understand why all of this is happening so quickly.”
“But I’m also emotional because of all of the incredible things that so many of you out there are doing on a daily basis,” he added. “And I know it’s a struggle right now for so many people, and I just wanted to say I love you all and I’m thinking of you all. We’ll get through this.”
