The actor shared with fans a moment where he did allow his vulnerability to shine through as he spoke about his dad.

Oliver posted an animated throwback clip from his podcast with Joe Buck called Daddy Issues, where the two talked to Eddie Vedder about fatherhood.

He opened up by saying, "My dad bailed on me, so I haven't had that sort of closure I guess."

It then cut to Joe explaining how Oliver was crying through Eddie's own story as it resonated with him and his own past.

"It's a lot," the Nashville actor said through tears as he was then calmed and embraced by Eddie.

Fans took warmly to the clip and shared their wholehearted support for Oliver. One left a comment saying, "Love this vulnerability. Love the idea of crying like a man rather than crying like a baby. Life is hard! Life without a father figure is hard. Big hugs."

Another wrote, "That was really one of my favourite episodes!!! I related on so many levels," and a third also added, "Oliver, you should write a book."
