In his Santa Monica, Calif., house, Jason Patric takes a seat in a bright, cheerful child's bedroom stocked with stuffed animals, books, baseball gloves and toys of every description.
But he hasn't seen the boy the bedroom is meant for in more than a year.
"It's been 54 weeks since I've seen Gus," the actor says an emotional interview in the new issue of PEOPLE. "The hardest part is thinking what he's feeling. Every single day there's a new wonder and worry: 'Is he ok? Is he hurt? What does he look like? What is his voice like? How is he doing in school?'"

What started as a child custody dispute between Jason Patric and a former girlfriend has evolved into a controversial, high-profile case that could change California law.
Patric, 47, star of The Lost Boys, Sleepers and My Sister's Keeper, has become intimately intertwined with a California state bill that would give sperm donors the ability to sue for parentage rights.
As part of a fertility treatment, Patric donated sperm in 2009 to a former girlfriend, massage therapist Danielle Schreiber, that resulted in her pregnancy, according to ABC News. He then decided he wanted to help raise the child, Gus, now 3, but was thwarted in his attempts to gain partial custody.
