"I love him," the 65-year-old comedian said, getting choked up. "So sweet of him to do that, so nice, cause he does know me."
Late last month, Goodman sat down for an interview with The Sunday Times where he admitted that he was "brokenhearted" by the cancellation of the Roseanne revival, and defended his co-star against the deluge of accusations of racism following the racially charged tweet that cost Barr her show.
"I know, for a fact that she’s not a racist," Goodman said, before adding that Barr is "still going through hell" over the controversy.
Barr admitted to ET that she cried when she first read what Goodman had said.
"I was so happy, it was so sweet," she shared. "I think it was so nice for someone who knows me to speak for me, it was great."
During the podcast, Barr also claimed that she was planning to "go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there."
"I’m not going to curse it or bless it,” Barr said. “I’m staying neutral. That’s what I do. I’m staying neutral. I’m staying away from it. Not wishing bad on anyone, and I don’t wish good for my enemies. I don’t. I can’t. I just stay neutral. That’s what I gotta do. I have some mental health issues of depression and stuff. I got to stay in the middle or I’ll go dark, and I don’t want to go dark again. I’ve done it. After all, I was married to Tom Arnold.”
