Earlier this year, Dern opened up to ELLE about how her family, including Ladd, have comforted her throughout the pandemic.

"Family — I think for all of us. Sharing the privilege of what seem like the little moments, cooking a meal with my kids, learning to cook together, sharing stories," she said.

"My Mom had pneumonia and specifically was high-risk in terms of her lungs. So, being so protective of her, it was a very locked-down time, like so many of us with a high-risk family member."
