20+ Loving Celebs Who Never Forget Their Moms, No Matter How Rich and Famous They Are
For many people, a mother can be that irreplaceable figure — tireless, loving, full of advice and recommendations, who would not hesitate to give everything for their children. And someone whose children can count on them at all times. The same happens to many celebrities, and although sometimes we tend to idolize them, they are flesh and blood people like us, who often want nothing more than the company or the hand of their mom.

I didn’t grow up in a life of privilege — I grew up in a very rough neighborhood in East Los Angeles and this woman drove me for 3 hours a day to a different school to show me a different opportunity.
