"My mom & cousin… were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they lived," he wrote on the post. "First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them.

"But then you realise the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days," the actor added. "Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them."
