Manager on Padalecki’s Absence: “He Needs to Spend Time with His Family Now"
Following media reports that Supernatural star Jared Padalecki had to cancel a number of appearances due to exhaustion, his manager finally spoke out about the state of affairs surrounding this huge teen star. "Jared wanted everyone to know he loves meeting his fans around the world and was very upset at having to cancel his trips to Rome and Australia," his manager said in a statement. "Jared has pushed himself to his limits and is suffering from exhaustion. His SPN family is so important to him, and he asks that they Always Keep Fighting. At this time he needs to be home with his family.”
The statement assured the public that Jared is doing better already and that there is no doubt he will continue with the shooting of Supernatural this July. At the present time, however, Jared needs a break and the support coming from his fans is an essential part of his recovery. Thousands of people reposted his Facebook and Instagram posts, showing how much he means to them. Fellow actors also took to social media to express their support and love. Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles wrote that he wished Jared a lot of rest, adding he’s got his back.
Explaining Padalecki’s needs, Ackles said: "He's a big guy with a big heart, and sometimes he just doesn't know when to stop giving himself. And he gives himself a lot to what he does, he gives himself a lot to you guys, and he gives himself a lot to his family, and his friends, and his work, and his job. Sometimes you just need to get home and rest with your family. That's what he's doing."
