Momma’s Boys and Girls: Stars Who Brought Their Leading Lady to the Biggest Red Carpet Affairs

When we’re kids, we sometimes get embarrassed if we’re seen with our moms. We certainly wouldn’t be caught dead bringing them to a party. At some point in our lives, things change, and most of us start to welcome any opportunity to spend time with them. These days, most of us would be more than happy to bring our moms along with us to an event, especially if that event is special, and gives us a chance to make momma proud.

Celebrities, after all, and contrary to what some people think, are humans too. We’re sure that growing up, they’ve had the same anxieties about being embarrassed by the presence of a parent. But, as we’ll soon see, these famous guys and girls got over it and brought their moms to exclusive red carpet events. As we see from these cool photos, it must have been an awesome experience for everyone involved!

Jonah Hill Has Always Been a Momma’s Boy

Jonah Hill had always wanted to be a writer. As a kid, he dreamed of writing for The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live. He had his big break with the release of Superbad (if you haven’t seen it, you must because it’s super-good). One thing that is important to know about him though, is that he is a major momma’s boy. Sharon Chalkin (his mom) has always been extremely supportive of her talented son.

It’s reported that growing up, the two have always been best buds. Jonah was also tight with his grandma. In fact, he even got a tattoo on his forearm as a tribute to her. It says “Nancy rules.” Anyway, we’re sure Feldstein was delighted when Jonah took her to the red carpet, in the sweet and true spirit of a Hollywood momma’s boy.

Dakota Johnson Returns the Red Carpet-Invite Favor

Dakota Johnson is awesome.

In 2015, Dakota Johnson brought her favorite lady, her mom, to the Oscars. But, as it turns out, 15 years earlier, Griffith attended the Oscars with her then-husband, Antonio Banderas. Dakota, only ten years old at the time, accompanied her mom and Banderas on the red carpet. So, in some ways, when Dakota brought her mom along in 2015, she was kind of returning the favor, which is absolutely adorable.

A Large Part of Colin Farrell’s Career Is About Making His Mom Happy

Fright Night is the greatest success of my career,” said Colin Farrell a few years ago. He went on to explain that he feels this way not necessarily due to the film’s box office success (which was good, but not great), but rather because of a love story that was born on the set. One day, Farrell’s mother, Rita, came to visit her son during the production. One of the producers was struck with how sweet and nice Rita was.

The producer, Alison Rosenzweig, then slipped into the role of Cupid. She phoned her friend (also a producer) Joel Michaels and told him she has the perfect lady for him. Rita and Joel subsequently were set up on a date. They hit it off excellently, and the rest is history. Now they’re happily married. According to Colin, this is one of the best things that has ever happened to him. He loves his momma, she loves him, and he was thrilled to be able to make her happy.

But behind the magic, a pillar of support has been standing strong the whole time: Yara’s mother – Keri Shahidi. In 2019, Yara was quoted saying “Mommy and I are genuinely best friends, while she is still very much my parent,” They like to chill a lot (as seen by their Instagrams), and Yara even brings her fave lady along with her to bigtime Hollywood award shows.

Mr. Robot, where Malek plays the dark and intriguing lead role, has been doing very well. And standing at his back is his sweet cute mom, Nelly Malek. When Rami started getting interested in a career in acting, his parents were a little uneasy.

Understandably so, because only one in a few million Hollywood aspirers makes it. The unease they expressed was only there because Rami’s parent’s only wanted what’s best for their son. Fast forward a few years, their son is bringing his momma to red carpet events! At the Oscars, Rami allegedly had to usher his mom away from some attendees because “She’ll go on forever…” about how proud of him she is. That’s downright heart-melting.

But this wasn’t the first time Washington brought her folks to an award show. In fact, with the Washingtons, it has become a sweet tradition.

Miranda’s mother, Luz Towns-Miranda, explains that as a child in school, Lin-Manuel was often wracked with anxiety and he suffered from headaches and stomach aches often. But, as a psychologist, Towns-Miranda had the know-how (and the deep love) to always have her son’s back. She was always there for him both as a great momma and a mental health professional. Some say he certainly wouldn’t have got to where he is now without her love and care.

That’s right people, Sharon Chalkin is not the mother of one, but two Hollywood comedy legends!

His mother, Mahalia Ann Hines, has an impressive resume herself – having worked as a marketing expert for Gillette, and a long-time educator. Common and Mahalia have always had a tight bond, and growing up, she always did her best to enable Common’s creative side to flourish. And flourish it did (that’s an understatement). In 2015, Common brought her to the Oscars as his date, and by all accounts, they had a great time!

In her childhood, she and her mother, Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz, were troubled by a difficult relationship with her father. Back in South Africa, their country of origin, Charlize’s father was a heavy drinker, and things often got bad. But despite all odds, the two women broke free. Charlize went on to become a superstar, and the two never looked back. Through thick and thin, mother and daughter had each other’s backs.

Michael Fassbender Loves His Mom Deeply, But He’s Happy She Couldn’t Attend His Screening

One of the earliest times Michael Fassbender hit our screens was with the 2001 release of Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg’s epic miniseries Band of Brothers. In the subsequent years of that decade, he found real mainstream success and went on to play in a bunch of awesome roles, including in X-Men: First Class. In 2011, he starred in Shame. Let’s just say the movie is not exactly PG-13.

And let’s just say that his character seems to have misplaced most of his clothes for the better part of an hour and 41 minutes… Fassbender’s mother, Adele Fassbender was supposed to attend the screening. But at the last minute, her back started acting up, and she couldn’t make it. Needless to say, both mother and son were relieved. But he made up it to her a couple of years later by taking her as his date to the Oscars!

In a super cute gesture, she brought her parents along with her to the award ceremony. But the sweetness doesn’t end there. In her acceptance speech, she gave a shoutout to her folks: “Eomma, Appa! Shalanghaeyo.” Which means in Korean “Mom, Dad, I love you.” The speech and the props were really heartwarming for her parents, and also to us fans.

Ansel Elgort Proved to the World That He’s Witty, Maybe He Gets It From Momma?

“I know you are but what am I?” “Your face!” Remember these epic comebacks? Yep, so do we. And even though their vogue is no longer, they’re still fun. But Ansel Elgort has one-upped everyone. Stay tuned. You might know Ansel Elgort from the awesome flick Baby Driver, where he was really slayin’ it. But with regards to 2019’s The Goldfinch, critics were less charitable.

Elgort played the lead role in the film rendition of this deep narrative. But critics responded to its release with tons of negativity. In commenting on the bad press, Elgort dropped the mic when he said a version of “I don’t care, my mom liked it.” Lol. Anyway, he was clearly unphased by the haters, just have a look at him and his mom, Grethe Barrett Holby, having a blast together at the Academy Awards.

Katie Holmes Gets Her Good Values From Mom and Dad and Passes Them to Her Daughter

Katie Holmes has always been close to her parents. Now, at 41, the Dawson’s Creek star can often be seen chilling with her folks at basketball games, on red carpets, and the like.

Holmes has a good heart and she is always involved in all sorts of volunteer work.

And another cool thing about the emphasis on being a good human that Holmes got from her parents is that she tries hard to pass it on to her daughter. She tries to make her daughter understand that she comes from a really privileged background, and because of that, she stresses the importance of volunteer work. For example, last year, Holmes and her daughter traveled to Greece to volunteer in a Syrian refugee camp.

There’s something about Justin Timberlake, maybe his demeanor, maybe his face, maybe his voice, that just makes us think “He must be a nice guy.” Well, his mom, Lynn Harless, would certainly agree. Justin and his mom have a super relationship. Look at how sweet they look here at the Oscars! #famgoals. In addition to taking her to the 2011 Oscars, just last year, Timberlake took his momma out for a super nice celebratory occasion.

Berklee College awarded Timberlake an honorary Doctor of Music degree. How did he celebrate? He took his mom out for a nice dinner at an awesome NYC restaurant.

It makes us want to all call our moms and take them out tonight!

Alicia Vikander Is Carrying on the Family Torch

Alicia Vikander is a real cutie. She’s a super talented actress and allegedly a really sweet person. Vikander and her mom, Maria Vikander, have a really close connection, and her mother played an instrumental part in her success. Alicia’s parents separated when she only a couple of months old. Despite difficulties, her mother took on full responsibility and raised her solo. Which, of course, is no small undertaking and speaks volumes of her love.

Also, when it comes to acting, it’s abundantly clear that Alicia drew inspiration from momma, who was also a stage actress. Alicia grew up immersed in theatre. When Maria couldn’t find a babysitter, she would bring little Alicia to work, which was often the theatre. Going forward a couple of decades, Alicia hit it huge and had the pleasure of taking her mom for a stroll on the red carpet.

And she made it – big time, partly thanks to her loving mother.

Xavier Bardem Isn’t so Scary When He’s Kissing His Beloved Momma on the Cheek

We shivered when he swallowed cyanide in Skyfall. We trembled in fear when his uber-villain ominously crept through the halls in No Country for Old Men. We repeatedly gasped in horror during his performance in Mother! But what’s about when he takes his mom to the Oscars and gives her a big smooch in front of the cameras? Somehow, that scariness that we love him for dissipates and gives way to sweet mother/son affection.

In any case, the Swanks come from modest backgrounds, but they’ve always had mad love for each other. Growing up in Lincoln Nebraska, the Swanks also had a few cute dogs who meant the world to them. By all accounts, high or low profile, the Swank household has always been warm. Maybe this is why Hilary is smiling in pretty much every photo we see of her.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Has Rockin’ Thing Going With His Momma

As ABC News aptly put it a couple of years ago: “The Rock is at it again.” What exactly is the “it” referring to? Well, it refers to being cool. A couple a years ago, he bought his mother a new home for Christmas! Wow. We wish our super talented and famous sons would do the same for us… Johnson recounts that growing up, things weren’t always easy. They moved a lot, and they lived in small apartments all over the country.

Kate Walsh Loves Her Mom, and She’s Not Afraid to Crack a Good Joke About Her

Where does Kate Walsh get her spunk? Well, the clue is in the title of this article, but if you’ve seen Walsh in Bad Judge, Grey’s Anatomy, or any other good work she’s been involved in, then you know she’s great. When Walsh and her mother, Angela C. Bochetto. are seen on the red carpet, they’re always adorably inseparable.

Mammas Boys and Girls  Stars Who Brought Their Leading Lady to the Biggest Red Carpet Affairs 40

Walsh says that she gets a lot of her youthful character and good vibes from her mom, and she’s even hilariously said that Bochetto is the “original cougar.” We don’t want to speculate too much, but maybe this is because she was involved with a man 17 years younger than her? Anywho, Walsh and her mom have a great relationship, and whether it’s on the red carpet, at more anonymous events, or in their spare time, they’re always chilling.

Leonardo DiCaprio Is A Ladies’ Man, But He Says That His True Love Is His Mom

In Hollywood (and maybe in the rest of the world), it’s hard to find someone who fits the definition of “momma’s boy’ more than Leonardo DiCaprio. Really, DiCaprio doesn’t need any formal introduction here, as he’s a mega, award-winning superstar, loved for his monumental roles in stuff like Titanic and The Wolf of Wall Street.

DiCaprio didn’t grow up privileged. He grew up poor in L.A. and his loving mom, Irmelin DiCaprio, sometimes struggled to make ends meet and give Leonardo unwavering support. She even put him through university and drove him there every day. What’s extremely sweet is that Leo and his mom have a long red carpet history, dating all the way back to 1993. Leo is a ladies’ man, but his momma is number one.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson Are Momma/Daughter Superstars

From looking at pictures of Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson together on the red carpet, it’s hard to tell who brought who. But who cares? They’re both hyper-talented, amazing actresses. It’s also hard to say what they’re best works are. One of our favorites of hers might be Death Becomes Her. And what’s about Hudson?

Mammas Boys and Girls  Stars Who Brought Their Leading Lady to the Biggest Red Carpet Affairs 38

She’s had so many great roles in so many good movies, it’s also hard to tell. Maybe it’s Almost Famous. Wait, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is also really good. Hmm. Whatever film you like of both actresses, it’s clear that this Hollywood daughter and mother give us some serious #mommalovegoals.

Kelly and the Rest of the Osbournes Will Never Stop Being Awesome

Despite what it may sometimes look like on The Osbournes, or when they appeared together on the panel on Masked Singer, Kelly and Sharon Osbourne are actually super tight and cutesy together. The pair have perfect chemistry and they’re always hanging out all over the place. A couple of years ago, paparazzi and Osbourne fans had a field day when people spotted the two walkings around in downtown L.A.

Apparently, they were spending some time together and going for a stroll. These ladies are super fun of course, but how couldn’t they be? After all, one of them is the daughter, and the other is the wife of the Prince of Darkness himself, the legendary Ozzy Osbourne. Obviously some of his magic rubs off on them.

Thirty Seconds to Mars, but Only a Millisecond’s Distance From His Momma, Meet Jared Leto

Jared Leto is a real polymath: singer, songwriter, actor, joker, rockstar – he does it all, and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. Just think of his crazy performance in the highly disturbing and moving hit Requiem for a Dream or his award-winning role in Dallas Buyers Club. His acting career started in 1994, and the band in which he’s the lead singer, Thirty Seconds to Mars, started gaining momentum in the early 2000s.
