He tells the sweet pups, all looking up at him while he talks in front of a large illuminated red cross.
“We are from the stars. No matter who you are – from human to hound – the tradition of setting aside time to contemplate your life and role in it is essential in the development of self.”
He ends the clip by telling each one,
“I love you.”
Writer Kevin Sessums, who knows Ryan, posted on Facebook,
“Just heard from a mutual friend that he texted them from hospital so he’s doing well enough to make a bit of a joke – of course he would – but please keep him in your prayers. You don’t sustain three [four] shots to the chest – if those reports are true – and just walk out of the hospital the next day. I am still in shock about it all.
If you pray, pray for his recovery.”
Gaga is currently in Rome getting ready to shoot her upcoming movie, Gucci.
