During the promotion of the documentary on “The View,” co-host Sara Haines expressed the profound impact it had on her. She shared her plan to watch it whenever she needed to reconnect with her own inner strength.
“I wanted to run laps when I got done,” she shared.
Sara’s words touched Tyler Perry deeply. She told him that through the film, she felt like she “met Maxine,” Tyler’s mother.
Fighting to maintain his composure, Tyler reacted saying, “Wait a minute…Wow. You met my mother? You met my mother through it? Man, that’s…wow! Wow! Thank you. Oh, my God. Wow!”
He continued, “To say that you met her through that…that takes me somewhere because she – this woman endured so much pain and she didn’t have some legacy, but she had me. To say that I was able to introduce her to you…you got me there, man. Thank you for that. I appreciate that very much.”
