In an interview with Zoom, The Family Man star recounted, "I have witnessed this within my own family. My father didn't have a voice. Amongst us six siblings, if you ask any of them, they'd confirm the same thing. My mother was the dominant figure. Even during her final days, she remained fiercely self-reliant. She abhorred relying on others and, at one point, she asked my sister for poison to end her life because she detested being reliant on her children. That was the upbringing in my family."
