Share This Article:

In Melissa McCarthy’s new film Life of the Party, she goes back to college after her husband asks for a divorce out of the blue. The twist? Her daughter studies there too, and her sorority seems like the perfect place to start making friends.

Now, mothers can be a little embarrassing sometimes, but we wouldn’t change them for the world. We wouldn’t mind if we had mothers like these crashing our uni experiences! These celeb mother/daughter duos are hashtag goals!

Will and Jaden round off this awesome foursome killer skilled artists. From acting to making music to saving the world, all whilst serving the freshest looks, this is a family no one would be embarrassed to be part of.

2. Goldie Hawn / Kate Hudson

Academy Award winner and all round superstar Goldie is mother to Academy Award nominated all round superstar Kate, and we’re not sure who we’re more jealous of! Kate describes her mum as "the woman that I've learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to."

3. Kris Jenner / The Kardashians

Kanye publicity stunts and baby drama aside, it’s easy to forget that the Kardashian-Jenner clan are first and foremost a family. Kris has been a grandma for years now, but that’s not stopping her from keeping up with the best of them.

4. Lisa Bonet / Zoe Kravitz

The Cosby Show star Lisa Bonet is one of the coolest mums around, so it makes total sense that Zoe Kravitz is such a legend. 

“She walked away from being famous because she didn't really care about it,” Zoe said about her mum. “She is the most true artist I have met. She doesn't change for anybody... I admire her so much - and the fact that she's my mom is just so cool!”

5. Hillary Clinton / Chelsea Clinton

The release of Chelsea’s book “She Persisted” in 2017, and her mother’s persistence in pursuing the political top spot cement both these nasty women as feminist heroes. "I hope that we have more women throwing their hat in the ring, and I look forward to supporting those women in the future,” said Chelsea after Hillary’s loss.

6. Melanie Griffith / Dakota Johnson

Working Girl Melanie Griffith and her daughter Dakota Johnson always kill it on the red carpet… but I guess she doesn’t always agree with Dakota’s career choices! Honestly, who’d blame her! Would you really want your mum to see you in 50 Shades!?

7. Peggy Lipton / Rashida Jones

You’ll recognise Peggy as Norma Jennings from Twin Peaks, and Rashida from Parks and Rec, and they make a killer duo! “My mother and I are more than best friends; we are partners in crime,” said Rashida.

8. Judy Garland / Liza Minnelli

Icon of American screen, stage, and song, Judy Garland’s daughter Liza is certainly a chip off the old block! Both absolute icons in their own right, you really can’t get any more legendary than this mother-daughter duo. Liza remembers Judy saying to her: ''Watch me, learn from me and learn from my mistakes.''

Motown queen Diana and Black-ish star Tracee are yet another powerful pair that dominate their respective creative fields. “My mom is so supportive. I have a really good mommy,” said Tracee. Watch this video of Tracee talking about her mum too!

10. Debbie Reynolds / Carrie Fisher

Singing in the Rain star Debbie Reynolds and Star Wars star Carrie Fisher are maybe one of the most influential mother-daughter duos to have graced the big screen. They both passed away within days of each other in 2016, but the moving documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds commemorates their loving relationship.

Life of the Party releases in cinemas on May 11th.
