"I have had beautiful alone time with him these last days. He went out laughing."

The heart-melting message wouldn't come as much of a surprise considering the fact that Jane and Peter were very close while growing up.

The pair leaned on each other following their mother's suicide and estrangement from their father in their childhood. They subsequently went on to achieve a successful career in the Entertainment world together.
