London: Actress Brie Larson says playing a mother in her latest film 'Room' gave her a better understanding of her own parent.
The 26-year-old actress, who plays a kidnapped mother in 'Room', said she asked her mom for 'forgiveness' while shooting the movie, reported Female First.
"The times that I would cry at home [after shooting] was when I would call my mom asking for forgiveness for all that I didn't know as a kid. It wasn't the depression of Ma's story, it was how little I knew of the struggle of being a mother.
"Suddenly I was able to, in some ways, relieve my childhood from my mom's perspective and see all the way she loved me and protected me and all of the ways I never noticed it."
