“It’s hard to believe that it’s been a full year since the last Golden Globes,” the actor, 55, said when he took the stage as a presenter. “But like many of us, I have used that time to really look inward and grow. I have understood the nature of crypto currency. I read a book. I finally got around to dyeing my hair gray.”

The New York native added, “And like so many other resilient Americans, I learned to bake — a delicious banana bread in the perfect form of a Golden Globe. Yum!”

“My sister [Amy] and I were able to be with him,” Ben told The New Yorker after his father’s passing. “And, just due to the fact that he didn’t have a coronavirus-related illness, and he had been ailing for a while, we were able to be with him, which I’m very, very grateful for.”

While the late actor’s “last week or two were tougher for him,” Ben said that Jerry “went peacefully.”

The Zoolander star added, “He had a sense of humor, for sure, until the end. I hesitate to call it a sense of humor. He was just funny, and so he was always himself. He was almost 93, and I think his body was kind of at that point where it was time.”

In February 2019, Ben gushed that his dad was “the most naturally funny man in the world” while collecting a win at the Directors Guild of America Awards.

They have continued to maintain a “wonderful” relationship. “We’re a big family,” the actress, 49, exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2018. “We’re together all the time.”
