Naomie Harris' 're-parenting' therapy

Naomie Harris had therapy to "fully become an adult".

The 'Skyfall' star has revealed she underwent therapy recently so she could learn about "re-parenting".

She explained: "People like Billy [Hope, the light-heavyweight boxing champion played by Jake Gyllenhaal in 'Southpaw'] don't know how to parent. I did The Hoffman Process recently, which is all about learning re-parenting, because so many of us come from dysfunctional parents, and we get trapped in negative patterns that stem from that. To break those patterns you have to be in a space where you can recreate what you went through and deal with it.

"Because I want to fully become an adult. Most of us operate as if we are adults, but we aren't emotionally mature at all."

The 38-year-old beauty also loves to keep in touch with those she had group therapy with.

When asked if she still talks to her fellow attendees, she told's weekly digital magazine, The EDIT: "Absolutely. We [all] text each other all the time. I spoke at length last night on the phone to someone who had reached out to me, and in the same way I'll be able to reach out to them when I need to. I just want to be the best human being I can be."
