“It’s easy being a mom”—said no one ever. With Mother’s Day just around the corner—tomorrow, to be precise, it’s natural for the world wide web to explode with mom memes that would have you nodding your head in unison.
Case in point: mums are cool. But guess what? Just in case you thought that laughing over these eerily related mom memes was a ‘regular millennial’ thing, well, rethink!
A volley of Hollywood celebrities took to the internet during this quarantine to share the most insane of messages that they’ve received to date from their mums.
In a Mother’s Day special of sorts; the Thursday episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live saw seven hugely popular stars get candid during a freewheeling conversation. And, this is what they had to say.
Gwyneth Paltrow chuckled as she revealed a recent mom text: “Can I come swim. My pool is 72 burrr. Don’t have to eat. I have plenty. Actually, going for a walk. Maybe Tomorrow. No fine, I changed my mind. Didn’t want to get wet.”
Gwyneth and her mom are neighbors and live close by, FYI.
22-year-old Elle Fanning too had an interesting mom text to share. Turns out, the Aurora star’s mom is a LOT like a regular mom—overly concerned, to the point of absolute hilarity. On the show, Elle read out a lengthy text from her mum, trying hard not to crack up while she was on it. The text read: “just a reminder. Don’t ever ever ever dive into a swimming pool period or into an ocean or lake ever ever. No matter what. You cannot rely on someone saying it’s safe or thinking that it’s deep enough. Oceans have sand bars that look deep, but are really up to your ankle. Just go in at steps or scoot in on your bottom gently. Even the jumping first feed is dangerous, too. Unless you ball up tightly. You can jam your legs and do the same damage if you don’t ball up when jumping. You’re TALL and you can NOT risk it at all. Never. No matter what.”
Canadian Actor Will Arnett on the other hand, dropped deets into a series of recent texts to his mom, which had the audiences face-palming for obvious reasons.
“What’s up with you guys??” asked Will, to which his mum responded, “We are watching the Crown. What’s up with you?? We can utilize the “pause” button.”
To which, Will wondered (rather loudly): “I forgot you could utilize the pause button.”
The video is unmissable for its gems. We aren’t going to play spoilsport and reveal the rest of the video and the rib-tickling texts.
P.S you cannot miss Renee Zellweger’s mom’s texts!

Lesson learned: Celeb or not, moms come with in-built sensors to detect what’s off, are born multi-taskers and well, can be really nasty or funny. Or both.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms out there!
