So very sad. After all, our life friends mean a lot to us. And he certainly was very disappointing that friends have turned away. Perhaps the last time he had a great depression. Now, many are not true friends. What are friends with you just because of the benefits. And when you tell them not beneficial or not beneficial, others are looking for a warm place. And I think the actor friends with him did so. I am very sorry for him. After all, as a man, he was not bad. And their roles performed well. I do not understand why he was not invited to star in films.
