The actor, who previously revealed he has been battling depression for seven years, was overwhelmed by the fan tribute, telling the crowd:

“This is so touching and humbling and honoring. I don’t have the proper words to say thank you or how humbled and honored and excited I am and keep it up, guys. Thank y’all so much.”

What an inspiring moment! Always keep fighting, Jared!
