VIDEO: Janet Jackson Says She Channeled Michael’s Death For Emotional Film Scene

Janet Jackson said she thought of her brother Michael’s death to muster up tears for her new film Why Did I Get Married Too? on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday, and has the clip for you.

Leno asked Jackson about how she channeled her emotions for a particularly rousing scene in which she breaks down and smashes a table.

“You have to dig deep, but there was some stuff that was right there for me,” she said. “Stuff that had just happened with my brother passing and also relationships. Experiencing… exactly that. You just have to trust and give it up, just let go and be very, very open.”
