Motherhood has been a journey for Jennifer Lawrence, and she’s being honest. On December 7, the “Causeway” star spoke for fellow actress Viola Davis diversity‘s Actors on Actors series, which saw the two bond over their shared experiences as parents. After discussing her emotional film, which premiered Sept. 10, Lawrence delved into her decision to start a family, noting that she was “so scared I was going to screw it up.”

“Every day as a mother I feel terrible. I feel guilty,” she told Davis. “I play with [my son] and I’m like, ‘Is that what he wants to do? shall we be outside we are outside What if he’s cold? What if he gets sick? shall we be inside Is that enough? Does that develop your brain enough?’”

In the spirit of the relationship, Davis recalled a story when she accidentally locked her 12-year-old daughter Genesis in her car. “I had 50 million things on my plate,” Davis said. “My daughter was in the back. She’s happy and I’m just so stressed out going to Target… I get out of the car, close the door and realize I don’t have my keys. I threw myself on the concrete, Jennifer. I screamed. You’d think I was in a Greek tragedy.”

She continued, “‘My baby! Jesus!’ And then I saw these two men. I grabbed her neck and said, ‘My baby’s in the car! My baby!’ And then what do I have in my hand? My phone. The two men whose necks I grabbed said, ‘Ma’am, all you have to do is call 911.’ And I said, ‘Oh, okay.’ So I called 911 and yelled at the operator. Every swear word you can think of came out of my mouth. They got her out of the car. And the reason I’m telling you this story is because it was literally seconds. “

Lawrence then revealed that she once drove around with her son with the seat unbuckled. “He just stumbled around, just flew. OK, great! Good to know we almost killed all of our kids,” she said jokingly.

Back in April, People confirmed that Lawrence welcomed son Cy with husband Cooke Maroney, their first child together, whose name she revealed in Vogue’s October cover story. According to the actor, their son is named after American post-war painter Cy Twombly, one of Maroney’s – who is also an art gallery director – favorite artist.
