As we head into another Mother’s Day, we want to celebrate everything moms. It’s no secret that moms are absolutely amazing: guiding us, teaching us, loving us. Sometimes, we’re even lucky enough to call our mamas our best friends well into adulthood — and we’re not the only ones. Many celebrities never pass up an opportunity to sing their mothers’ praises.
Whether it’s bringing them to highly exclusive red carpet events like the Oscars or gushing about them in interviews, many of our favorite stars love talking about their moms. Even if their parents are superstars themselves, or had a rough time seeing eye-to-eye with them in their childhood, many stars have grown up to say that their best friend in the world is their mom, and we love celebrating these super-close family friendships.
From Kanye West to Kathy Griffin, Kate Hudson, and more, these celebs share how their moms are the first person they call with good news and their favorite person to talk to, or gush over what a formative effect their moms have had on their lives. Even though some of these famous moms are no longer with us, they left an indelible effect on their kids’ lives — both as a parent and as a friend.
