Visiting the Today show to talk about the upcoming James Brown biopic, Get on Up, on which he worked as a producer, Jagger was asked how he was holding up for the last few months.
“I’m doing OK,” Jagger replied. “It’s difficult. Very hard year, but I got back into it by working on touring with the Stones in Europe and doing other things, including doing this great movie.”
Jagger also noted his appreciation to fans and friends for their continued support during the painful time.
Jagger also spoke in depth about the new film, painting the portrait of a man coping through work. Simply acknowledging the event in public, though, could be a big step in his grieving process.
Get on Up will be in theaters on Aug. 1.
