Ten Famous Mothers and Their Daughters


This is what I think; if a daughter is born to a famous mother, it cannot be an easy job for her to keep up to speed with her primarily because a lot of comparisons come in and that causes frustration. The only thing a mother would want for her daughter is health and happiness. This particular list talks about top ten famous mothers and their daughters and the interesting bit is that their daughters were every bit as awesome as their mothers. Following is a quote from Laura Ramirez:

“The love between a mother and her daughter is special. A mother takes her daughter under her wing and teaches her how to be a woman. In order to do this, you have to ask yourself what it means to be a woman of today. How do you balance care for others with your own quest for meaning and joy in life and how do you pass on these lessons to your daughter?”

‘She’s family, if you can’t count on family, who the hell can you count on’? – Sphia Petrillo. Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur played the characters of Sophia Petrillo and Dorothy Zbornak in the famous sitcom by the name of ‘The Golden Girls’. It was aired between 1985 and 1992. Both of them share a beautiful relations of admiration and love. I know the characters are fictional, but if you have seen the show I am sure you will understand why they made it to this particular list.

 

9. EMPRESS MARIA THERESA

‘No one understands my ills… who does not know the heart of a mother’ – Marie Antoinette (the daughter of Maria Theresa). Both, the mother and daughter, made quite a mark on Europe and its history. Maria was a devoted mother of 16. Maria Theresa was the only female to ever rule in the Habsburg Monarchy. Marie Antoinette was the Queen of France and therefore there was a lot of distance between them but the kept correspondence. They both loved each other and exchanged letter and it is noted that Marie teared up at every single one of the letters from her mother.

 

8. MARGARET ‘MARMEE’ MARCH

‘What do girls do who haven’t any mothers to help them through their troubles’? – Louisa May Alcott. Do you remember the tale of the March girls in the book ‘Little Women’? Well, not many books can capture the relationship between a mother and her daughter and all the dynamics in between just as well as that book. It is an interesting read so if you ever have the time do give it a read. On an interesting side note, the book is the same that Rachel convinces Joey to read in F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

 

7. JANET LEIGH

Janet Leigh - Ten Famous Mothers and Their Daughters
“My mother was the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. There are moments when I remember her beauty, unadorned, unposed, not in some artificial place like a set or a photo call but rather captured outdoors in nature, where she took my breath away. When those moments surface, I miss her the most.” – Jamie Lee Curtis (daughter of Janet Leigh). You must remember the shower scene played by Leigh in the movie Psycho. Eighteen years after that movie was released, Jamie Lee Curtis appeared in ‘Halloween’ and that movie changed the horror scene once again.
