In the middle of filming Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn‘s upcoming mother-daughter comedy Snatched, Christopher Meloni found out his own mom had passed away. During an appearance on The Talk on Wednesday, the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit alum revealed that he wouldn’t have been able to get through it without the love of his costars. “We have one more shot to do and we’re going to jump into a boat and zip up the river and Goldie Hawn and I start talking,” he recalled of the morning he heard the tragic news. “I said ‘Well, to be honest my mother passed.’ She grabs me and she hugs me tight. I needed that moment.” Amy, of course, responded to the news with a little bit of humor. Watch the video above to see what the actress did that perfectly “diffused” the situation.
