In a new episode of 'The View', the 'Don't Look Up' actor discusses his late mother, who passed away in 2019 after her cancer battle and 'lived her entire life with so much pain.'

AceShowbiz - Tyler Perry was reduced to tears by Sara Haines' heartfelt remarks on his late mother. When making an appearance on "The View", the "Don't Look Up" actor talked about his new documentary titled "Maxine's Baby: The Tyler Perry Story" with the TV program's co-hosts, including Sara.

In the Tuesday, November 7 episode of the show, the 54-year-old filmmaker was forced to pause his interview to get himself together due to Sara's comments on his mother, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 64 years old after her cancer battle. "This film, I will watch every time I need my own power because I wanted to run laps! It was so well done," the 46-year-old co-host began saying.

"When I met Maxine through all of it, I didn't know her, but it shows just how much you endured as a child," Sara continued. It did not take long for Tyler to say, "Okay wait a minute, that one took me. Wow, how did it hit me that hard? You met my mother." He then could be heard asking while bursting into tears, "You met my mother through it? Man, wow, thank you, oh my gosh."

Tyler went on to explain, "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 and to say that I was able to introduce her to you, you got me there. I'm sorry, Lord have mercy. I appreciate that."

Also getting emotional, Sara further thanked Tyler, "Thank you for sharing her too, with all of us because her legacy remains very strong in you and your son." She stated, "You endured a lot. I didn't know this either. A violent childhood. You had a lot of trauma, a lot of pain, yet you say that the work you created…"

Before Sara finished her sentence, Tyler was looking down and crying as he said, "I'm sorry, guys. I'm sorry. You met my mother through the doc... you really got me there, I'm sorry." He further stated, "I need to get myself together!"

Elsewhere in the chat, Tyler elaborated, "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?' "

The "Maxine's Baby: The Tyler Perry Story" documentary, which is directed by Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz, follows Tyler's journey before his blossoming career. The doc is set to air on Amazon on November 17.
