Kristin Chenoweth Reveals Touching Way 'A Christmas Love Story' Mirrors Her Own Life Story

SPOILER ALERT – This post contains some spoilers for the Hallmark Channel movie A Christmas Love Story, so continue reading at your own risk!

Kristin Chenoweth has a personal connection to her new Hallmark Channel holiday movie A Christmas Love Story and she’s opening up about the touching story.

The Emmy and Tony-winning actress talked about a pivotal scene in the film while attending The Moms’ screening event on Friday morning (December 6) at Arena Cinelounge in Hollywood.

Without giving too many details away, there’s a scene in the new movie in which someone meets their birth mother for the very first time… which is something that Kristin, who was adopted, went through as well.

“That scene happened to me. I am adopted and I had this virtually same conversation with my birth mom,” Kristin said. “I remember [my birth mom] saying to me, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ And I was like, ‘There’s nothing to forgive. You gave me such a great life. I got the right parents.’ Anyway, that scene is very special to me because we developed it around exactly what happened in my life.”

The event was hosted by The Moms’ Denise Albert in partnership with SeroVital. You can watch the full Q&A via the Facebook Live below!

Make sure to watch A Christmas Love Story when it premieres on Hallmark Channel on Saturday night (December 7) at 8/7c.
