12 Hilarious and Heartwarming Stories Celebrities Have Shared About Their Moms


It’s always heartwarming to see our favorite celebrities showing off the tight-knit bond they have with their moms. And who can blame them? After all, their mothers are the ones who taught them important values and raised them to become the huge successes that they are today. But on top of being such inspiring role models for their talented kids, these moms have proved that they can also have their silly moments too! For instance, when Ryan Gosling took his mother to the Oscars in 2007, she was quite determined to make a good impression.

“She thought beehives were gonna be all the rage, and if you didn’t have a beehive you’d be embarrassed. And it turned out to be the opposite… It was a natural hair vibe that night. And my mom sat in front of Rachel Weisz, and [my mom’s] hair was so high [that Rachel couldn’t see]. My mom kept sinking in her chair. I didn’t know what to do and I wanted her to have a nice night”, he said.

“I didn’t know Meryl Streep, but she was sitting next to me, [so I asked her] ‘would you mind just telling my mom you like her hair?’ And she was like, ‘I got this.’ And then she goes, ‘You know, I wish… I was going to do a beehive…’ And my mom was like, raising the roof all night,’” he continued.

What a sweet story! If we were in Ryan’s shoes, we imagine we would’ve done the same for our own moms. Since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we decided to round up some other memorable tales we’ve heard from stars about their mothers.
