Just looking at those pictures of Darren at the GML premiere gives me chills because he’s smiling because hey, it’s his first big movie and he’s proud of it, but when you look into his eyes, they look watery and just- he looks really sad you know ? I’m really proud of Darren for his movie, but i’m more proud of him for going out and staying strong, even if everything inside is screaming for him not to.

I found this interview with him that he did for Rolling Stone where he was basically sitting there with a guitar and answering all the questions musically, and I thought that was really charming and he had this ease, and he just seemed perfect for this role.
Is there a video released of Darren being interviews by someone at the GML premiere? Because I keep seeing people quoting him when someone asked him why he was wearing a black ribbon and he said "for a friend" and I don't know if that's legit or if it's just another rumor.
There’s no video that I’m aware of, and I would not be surprised if Darren skipped the press entirely. However the ribbon being in remembrance of Cory was reported by multiplemedia members.
But even without media confirmation, black ribbons are commonly accepted as a public symbol of grief and mourning.
That he’s wearing the ribbon in honor of Cory is something I would definitely file under “fact,“ but I don’t know where the quote came from. I haven’t heard anything about that.
