Actor and director Tyler Perry became emotional during a recent interview on The View. The segment was about Perry's upcoming documentary about his mother, Maxine, titled Maxine's Baby: The Tyler Perry Story. The documentary follows Perry's life before he became an entertainment force as star, writer, and producer of his comedy series Madea.
Perry's emotional moment came after Haines commented on a clip from the documentary, saying that she felt like she had met Perry's mother after watching the documentary. "I met Maxine through all of it, I did know her."
Perry became visibly emotional as he thanked Haines for her sentiment.
Hespoke candidly about what his mother meant to him.
"I just imagine a woman who's lived her entire life with so much pain, and she was always worried about everybody else. I watched her get sick, I watched her get cancer, I watched her have all of these things, because her intention was 'Are you happy? Are you okay?' She never put herself on the list, and she never thought she was important and never thought anybody would care. So, to say that this documentary… introduces her to the world, that moves me, because she was very special to me."
