While promoting her new movie A Kid Like Jake, Claire opened up about how she tapped into her own “anxiety” as a mom to 5-year-old son Cyrus.

“That’s not the case with my son exactly, but I certainly, certainly understand what it is to have anxiety about him being safe in the world and being identified as other in some way and it’s a completely natural impulse,” Claire told People. “I think that’s really at the root of this story.”

A Kid Like Jake
hits theaters on Friday, June 1.
