Jared Padalecki does battle on a weekly basis with monsters and other creatures on the long-running CW hit, Supernatural.
But the actor admitted in March that his real struggle has been with clinical depression, telling Variety that there were times he talked to a doctor about not being "happy with where I am in life."
Perhaps along those lines, the star canceled appearances in Rome and Australia last week, telling Twitter followers he was in "urgent" need of his family and asking for "all the love" they could provide.
Padalecki has since received the latter in bunches, taking once again to social media yesterday to provide supporters with an update.
"Thank you, from the bottom of my heart and soul, for your love and support," he wrote. "It's going to good use. All of my love and #AlwaysKeepFighting."
It remains unclear just what issues Padalecki has been dealing with, but his manager released the following statement after Padalecki canceled the aforementioned fan experiences:
"Jared has pushed himself to his limits and is suffering from exhaustion. His SPN family is so important to him, and he asks that they Always Keep Fighting. At this time he needs to be home with his family."
The manager added:
"He's doing better already and is excited about shooting Supernatural Season 11 this July. For now he's taking a break, but is so appreciative of his fans, and sees and feels their love and support."
We send Padalecki our very best wishes and we encourage readers to watch Supernatural online in order to appreciate his talent and beauty.
