Mother’s Day weekend is going strong, and there are still so many moms we want to celebrate because of all that they do. Today, we’re looking at the mothers who were the movers and shakers of Hollywood back in the day.
The Academy Award winning actress has a very close relationship with daughter Kate Hudson, who says her mom taught her the value of family and forming close relationships with her children.
The former first lady is an inspiration to all women, and we can only imagine how much her daughter, Chelsea, admires her mom’s dedication and know-how, not only to the world of politics but as an amazing role model.
Although Griffith refuses to watch her daughter’s breakout film, Fifty Shades of Grey
, she’s been a huge supporter of Dakota Johnson’s rising celebrity status.
Never one to silence what’s on her mind, the wife of Ozzy Osbourne has raised her children – Jack, Kelly and Amy – to be no different. Talking about motherhood and her close relationship to her kids to “Entertainment Tonight”, Osbourne said that dedicating your life to your children is “the greatest gift anyone could ever have.”
With a mom as cool as Bonet – who earned her claim to fame on The Cosby Show
– it’s no wonder Zoe Kravitz is one of Hollywood’s “It” girls. “She is the most true artist I have ever met,” Kravitz says in an interview with ASOS Magazine
. “She doesn’t change for anybody… I admire her so much- and the fact that she’s my mom is just so cool!”
“I used to sit in the dressing room with my mom and watch her do her makeup for the stage,” Tracee Ellis told T
magazine of her disco diva mom. “It was heaven.”
The hard-working actress puts just as much effort into her career as she does with her relationship with her daughter, actress Eva Amurri. The pair are frequently photographed at red carpet events and strolling the streets of Beverley Hills.
Working in showbiz for over 40 years, Shepherd knows a thing or two about the industry, and she’s passed on words of wisdom from her experiences to her daughter, actress Clementine Ford. “I used to be late all the time” Ford told People
. “One day she told me, ‘When you’re late, you’re disrespecting every single person you made a commitment to.’ That stuck with me.”
Not only is the 58-year-old a mom to sons, Chet and Truman Theodore Hanks, she’s also an active step-mom to Colin Hanks, son of Tom Hank and his first wife, the late Samantha Lewes.
The singer admits she initially had a hard time watching her son, Chaz Bono, undergo sex reassignment surgery when he made his transition from female-to-male. But now, the pair are closer than ever. “… we’re creating memories now and we’ve actually had the most fun together lately than we’ve had in forever,” she told The Sunday Times
