WHAT MUM MEANS TO ME…

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - MOTHER’S DAY -

KATE WINSLET ‘Ev­ery woman has a mother and ev­ery woman will have an is­sue with things she did or didn’t do. It just de­pends on how you choose to process the lessons that you learned from her.’ KATE HUD­SON ‘I’ve al­ways had a re­ally su­per re­la­tion­ship with her [ac­tress Goldie Hawn]. I talk about every­thing. I’ve never felt I’ve had to hide any­thing from her. She has al­ways been my con­fi­dante.’ DREW BAR­RY­MORE ‘My re­la­tion­ship with my mother is so com­pli­cated. It’s the hard­est sub­ject in my life. I’ve al­ways felt guilt, em­pa­thy and ut­ter sen­si­tiv­ity. But we can’t be in each other’s lives at this point.’ DAV­INA MCCALL ‘When my mother died I felt a sense of relief. I imag­ined her in the hospi­tal bed. All I kept say­ing was, “I for­give you. I for­give you. I for­give you.”’

JOAN COLLINS ‘My mother was a do­mes­tic god­dess and Mother Earth fig­ure, was sweet and placid, just how the per­fect wife was sup­posed to be – and I was de­ter­mined not to be.’ BAR­BARA TAY­LOR BRAD­FORD ‘My mother made me what I am. She gave me the de­sire to ex­cel. She taught me to read be­fore I was four and gave me an ed­u­ca­tion I couldn’t get at school. The day I left home, she wrote in her diary that the sun­shine had gone out of her life.’ SAM ROD­DICK ‘I was dyslexic at school and did ter­ri­bly. But thanks to my mum [Body Shop founder Anita Rod­dick], I was al­ways con­fi­dent. She was first and fore­most a teacher. She be­lieved in my in­tel­li­gence, so I did too.’ BAR­BRA STREISAND ‘My mother meant well. She loved me as best she could. She never praised me to my face but I feel she praised me to other peo­ple. I was al­ways try­ing to prove to her that I was wor­thy of be­ing some­body.’
