In an interview with GQ, the 20-year-old actor applauded Rodrigo's album and her ability to articulate her feelings.
"[It's an artist's job to] carry the emotional weight for other people. That's what's so great about Olivia's album," Bassett said. "She was able to articulate the feelings that she felt in a way that works on behalf of other people. I haven't been able to face any of it. I'll get back to it."
"I've had a hard time writing just because it's been so painful," he added. "I've had a hard time facing it in the way that I need to."
