Daughter of two of Hollywood’s most talented actors, Laura Dern certainly had a place from where to draw inspiration for her own wildly successful career. Always a big fan of both her parents, Laura has an extremely close relationship with her mother, Diane Ladd, which she constantly gushes over on her social media accounts.
They have starred in films together and even written a book together, which was published in April 2023 – a personal memoir of their close relationship, their careers as actresses, and the special bond between them. With the caption “Happy Mother’s Day to this amazing goddess”, Laura Dern posted the most adorable photo of her and her mom Diane making a banana pudding.
Rashida Jones and Peggy Lipton
“The Office” star Rashida Jones is the perfect combination of beauty and talent. Considering who her parents are, it’s no wonder. Her father is legendary music producer Quincy Jones, and her mother was gorgeous model and “Twin Peaks” actress Peggy Lipton. Since she was a young girl, Rashida and her mother were very close, and even as an adult, the young actress has never stopped singing her mother’s praises.
In a 2009 interview, Rashida said her mother is more than her best friend, she’s her “partner in crime.” “Mom is the most unconditionally loving person I will ever know, and she has always supported me on every level,” she continued, explaining how much Peggy had helped her navigate through life. Sadly, Peggy passed away in 2019, but Rashida still honors her every chance she gets.
Charlize Theron and Gerda Theron
The beautiful and talented South African actress Charlize Theron rose to prominence in the late 90s. Her starring role in 1997’s “The Devil’s Advocate” and 1999’s “The Cider House Rules” catapulted her to Hollywood fame. And throughout her incredible journey, her mother, Gerda, has been there every step of the way.
The two are incredibly close, with Gerda living just a two-minute walk from her daughter in Los Angeles, California. They are also constantly seen shopping and dining around L.A. or going on vacation together. Since becoming a mother herself, Charlize has said in an interview, “I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me… She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life.” Aww!
Liv Tyler and Bebe Buell
The stunning “Armageddon” star Liv Tyler has been conquering audiences since the mid-90s, and it seems she gets some of her looks and talent from her mother, Bebe Buell. A model and singer, Bebe Buell was one of the most beautiful women of the 70s and had her fair share of romances with some of the decade’s biggest rockstars, including Steven Tyler – Liv’s dad.
But since Liv was born, it seems Bebe focused solely on her, and the two became extremely close. Buell has supported Liv throughout her career, her marriage and divorce to musician Royston Langdon, the birth of her son Milo, and everything in between. “She’s my everything,” said Tyler of her mother in a social media post back in 2017.
Heidi Klum and Leni Olumi Klum
When you have such a successful businesswoman for a mom, it’s hard not to follow in her footsteps. Such is the case with Heidi Klum’s daughter, Leni Olumi Klum, who has been modeling since she was 17 years old. Heidi was the first German-born model to become a “Victoria’s Secret Angel.”
She graced the covers of every major fashion magazine in the world, became the host of “Project Runway” and “Germany’s Next Top Model,” and acted in several Hollywood movies, but what Heidi Klum is most proud of in her life, is her daughter Leni.
The two models are BFFS, with Heidi teaching her daughter the ropes of a very competitive industry, and who better to guide her than one of the world’s best?
