"What he made me realize is that inside of us all is a superhero," Gyllenhaal shared. "Inside of us, in the darkest times, in times where we feel like people we love that were close to us are struggling and we won't make it through another day, or another hour, a minute, or a second, there is that thing inside of us, and Jeff shows us that every day."
"Playing a character like that in a film was an opportunity for me to learn that about myself and see my own faults and see my own weaknesses, but also, as Jeff reminds me every day, see my own strengths in places that I never thought I could be strong," he added.
"It's hard to see that when you're going through it," Bauman shared with ET. "It's really hard to see that you could always bounce back from a loss."
The message of bouncing back is something Gyllenhaal hopes viewers take away from the film.
