"I don't think that it is a pro-life message," Mallette said of the film, the story of Beethoven's mother, who contemplated abortion by suicide. "People are going to get from it what they want to. It's a true story, it's a historical piece."
"I'm not trying to make a political stance," Mallette added. "I'm here just to help the girls."
"Today's" Savannah Guthrie also asked Mallette about how her son was coping with his much-publicized breakup with Selena Gomez. According to some reports, Mallette's a pretty big fan of the ex-Disney Channel star and has hopes for a reconciliation.
"You know, I just try and support whatever he's wanting. I think she’s a sweetheart and whatever they decide is great," Mallette said.
