Project Casting

Here are four great things actors have done for their moms.

Mother’s Day weekend is finally here which means brunches, breakfast in bed, manicures, pedicures, and macaroni posters. In honor of Mother’s day here are four amazing things actors have done in honor of their mothers.

1. Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese, the critically acclaimed director behind ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and ‘Goodfellas’ put his own mother in one of his movies. Catherine Scorsese played Joe Pesci’s mother. In the scene Joe Pesci’s character comes to her house with a body in the truck of his car.

“She doesn’t care what her son has done,” Scorsese recalled in 2010, saying most of the scene was improvised. “I didn’t tell her a body was in the trunk.”

2. Kanye West

Kanye West loves his mom. Most recently, his song ‘Only One’ is a tribute to his daughter North from the perspective of his late mother Donda West, who died in 2007.

My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter,” he said of the track, which is a collaboration with Paul McCartney.

But, before ever getting signed to a record label, Kanye West recorded “Mama” a loving tribute about his plans and goals to make his mother proud.

3. Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher remodeled his mom’s home for Mother’s Day this year. Kutcher surprised his mother and stepfather by remodeling their Iowa home he helped build as a young boy.

4. The Rock

Dwayne Johnson went above and beyond for his mom in 2012. The Rock posted on Facebook a photo of his mother, Ata, when bought her a Cadillac for Christmas.

At 14 I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed.

This felt good.

Merry Christmas mom.
