Mercedes told Entertainment Tonight that her father is “doing really well” at the moment.

She also shared that Val has actually seen the documentary “probably a thousand times so we can’t control what he does.”

“It’s very emotional for him to watch it and we wish he could be here but, you know, he’s here in spirit and he’s just so proud of this and that people get to see a side of him that has never been seen before,” Jack also shared at the event..

Mercedes and Jack also spoke about the documentary and putting a spotlight on Val, which begins streaming on Amazon Prime on August 6.

“It is really incredible to see the audience recognizing the truth of who he is kind of for the first time, none of this has been public, for us too it is very exciting for us,” Mercedes shared. “I think we are still — at least I am still trying to — figure it out to see his life narrated in such a way and I am only just really processing like how great of a legacy his body of work has.”

Jack continued, “He is such a creative persona and such an eccentric person and he really has a lot of energy and such a lust for life. He just loves life so much and he loves creating things and he loves movies and he loves everything. He’s just one of the most, uh, the best listeners and just the most, like, interesting people I’ve ever met.”

FYI: Mercedes is wearing a Vivienne Westwood look. Jack wore Celine.
