Jack Black opens up about losing his brother to AIDS related illness
Hollywood actor Jack Black has opened up about losing his brother to AIDS related illness.
In a new interview with Parade for an issue to be released on 11 October, the King Kong star opened up about losing his brother in 1989.
The 46-year-old said his brother died at the age of 32 in 1989, saying: “Losing a family member is the worst thing I could imagine.”
“[Death] didn’t happen quickly. We all saw the deterioration. He was only 32. So very young. We were robbed of something precious. It was devastating.”
“I have two gay siblings: my big sister Rachel, and my big brother, Howard. He was a big influence on me. He took me to my first rock concert. I was 11; he was 23. He was so vibrant, creative, amazing. He shaped my taste in music,” he went on.
