Rossum continued: “Father’s Day still is difficult for me. I’m not really sure how to celebrate. In the weeks leading up to it, I sense it coming like a wave approaching. Sometimes I try to ignore it. … Sometimes, I take my mom to brunch and get her a present, to show her how much I value her.”

The actress gushed over her mother, who she said filled both maternal and paternal roles in her life.

“I don’t like her to know that it still causes me pain — 30 years later — lest she feel somehow that she wasn’t enough,” she said. “She was always enough. She is enough. She wasn’t perfect, no one is, but for me she was the best mom ever.”
