Mom knows best

Mom knows bestMother’s Day comes and goes, but what a mother does for her child, and the memories she creates, lasts forever. Discover what these stars have to say about what their moms taught them…

Felicity Huffman

‘My mom gave me the gift of fun and pleasure – she showed me how to enjoy every moment. Another great gift: She was honest about how tough motherhood can be. I can always call her and say, “It’s so hard!” and not feel bad about it.’

Jennifer Garner

‘The joy that my mom took in having a beautiful house and putting a beautiful meal down in front of us and always having something ready for a guest really inspires me. I used to be sort of messy, but now I laugh at myself, because I kind of like to come home and tidy things up. I’m turning into my mom!’

Tina Fey

‘I get my sense of humor from my mom. There are so many quiet times you spend as a mother that aren’t glorified but are a foundation for your kids. No matter what, there was always a thick safety net under this trapeze.’

Charlize Theron

‘My mother’s philosophy was “If you get yourself in trouble, you’ve got to get yourself out of trouble.” There was always this awareness that you have to be responsible for yourself in order to have what you want.’

Maria Bello

‘My mother told me when I was a kid that each time we get to what feels like the edge of a cliff, we have two choices: to turn around and run, or to jump. I have learned over time to jump – and though it is scary, I know somewhere inside me that I will be caught.’

Melissa Rivers

‘The best advice my mom has ever given me is to never give up. She believes when one door shuts, another door opens. Always, always move forward. I admire her tenacity and her generosity and her ability to do 17 things at once.’
