Tammy Sue admits that she wasn’t happy when she first heard of the movie being made.
“It’s been very challenging over my life because people have done films, books, articles, television shows, plays, musicals and all kinds of things about my family,” she told the program. “I’m a big girl and that’s par for the course, but that’s not really normal. It’s strange to live that life.”
She continued, “When I first saw that they were going to do this film, frankly, I was not happy about it, only because I was like… here we go again.”
For the film, Tammy Sue recorded one of her mom’s favorite songs, “Don’t Give Up (On the Brink of a Miracle),” which plays during the end credits
“I got a text one day from Jessica Chastain, and she asked me if I would like to do a song for the film,” she recalled. “I had not seen the film and so I really went out on a limb to do this.”
Tammy Sue added that she wants to see the movie a second time before giving her opinion.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye is in theaters now.
