The 32-year-old Supernatural star stepped out for the Gilmore Girls reunion this past weekend at the 2015 ATX Festival where he opened up about the importance of taking a break sometimes.
“Try and remember to shift gears. That’s one of things I had to learn,” Jared told MTV News. “It doesn’t mean that you have to live the simple life, but the life lived with just your friends and family is a great life.”
Jared added, “Don’t get caught up trying to think you’re supposed to do more, or to think you’re supposed to please everybody. Take care of yourself.”
Alexis Bledel (Rory) and Jared Padalecki (Dean) join some of their Gilmore Girls castmates while attending the show’s highly anticipated reunion held at the ATX Television Festival on Saturday (June 6) in Austin, Tex.
During a panel at the festival, the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said Gilmore Girls would never have been put on television if she created it today.
“Today, you don’t sell Gilmore Girls, nobody buys it,” Amy said (via Huffington Post). “It was a time when a network wasn’t looking for a cohesive brand. Their brand was about the individual voices of the show.”
There was another reunion happening at the festival – Lauren hung out with her Parenthood co-stars Mae Whitman and Miles Heizer. See the Twitter pics below!

Jared Padalecki is taking a break from work to spend time with his family and recover from exhaustion.
“I am in desperate and urgent need of my family. I am so sorry to tell you this but I must head home,” the 32-year-old actor told his fans on Facebook over the weekend. He was supposed to attend a fan convention in Europe. “I need all of the love I can get right now. Please please give me a few seconds of your time and write me. #AlwaysKeepFighting.”

Castiel feels guilty for what he did to the Novak family and wants to make amends by reuniting Claire with her mom. However, when they find out what took Amelia, they realize there is a chance Claire may not get her happy ending.

In “Book of the Damned”, Charlie calls Sam and Dean to tell them she found the Book of the Dead which could help remove the Mark of Cain. The Winchesters race to her after she tells them she’s been shot by a man named Jacob Styne (Jeff Branson) who says the book belongs to his family and he won’t rest until he gets it back.
Meanwhile, Castiel (Misha Collins) and Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) take a road trip to find Castiel’s grace but they hit a couple road bumps along the way.

In “Paint It Black”, Sam and Dean investigate a string of suicides committed by people with little in common other than the identical, grisly method of death – slow, self-administered disembowlment. All of the victims were members of a Catholic church and had recently given confession, leading the brothers to suspect the priest (Stephen Daniel Curtis) is somehow involved.
Meanwhile, when Crowley (Mark Sheppard) captures Olivette (Teryl Rothery), the leader of the Grand Coven, Rowena (Ruth Connell) pleads her case to be allowed to practice magic freely again.
