"That last scene in the movie where they are confident and free. They're confident, they're being listened to, I'm proud of them speaking their mind," the 57-year-old star told PEOPLE of her daughters, who she shares with her husband, Chris Henchy.

"They are young women who are already beginning to find their own agencies. It took me until practically today."

Shields said that Rowan "called me from college and was like, 'Mom, let me see what you're wearing,' and 'I'm so proud of you.'"

"And my [other] daughter was just like, do you want me to hold your hand? Do you want me to hold your phone? Do you want me to hold your purse? And I was like 'No thank you, just hold my hand!'"
