In honor of the special occasion, many of our favorite stars -- including Anna Faris, Adam Scott, Tony Hale, Kristen Bell -- got together to read hilarious texts from their own moms on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Faris’ mom wrote a lengthy text at 3:34 a.m. that started off praising her daughter before getting a bit more critical.
“As you know know, we truly believe you are the greatest actress of your generation,” she wrote. “We do hope you transition into dramatic work. I also woke up because I am worried you are not wearing enough sunscreen and taking the B-12 I got you from a Costco. I hope this doesn’t wake you.”
She ended the text with a note for Faris’ Mom co-star, writing, “Please give Allison Janney our love and congratulations. No one deserves the Oscar more than her.”
Parks and Recreation star Adam Scott got a racy text from his grandmother. “Simon Helberg. Holy s**t! Brilliant work in Florence Foster Jenkins. Is it OK for a grandma to lust?” she wrote.
Scott replied, “Sure, just you truly do not need to text me about it.”
Bell had a Kimmel-specific text from her mom during award season.
“Hey Kristen, I know that you know Jimmy Kimmel, and he’s doing the Oscars. So tell him to give you all the winners, so you can give me the winners, and I can win at my Oscar party,” she wrote.
Black-ish star Anthony Anderson shared his mom’s demanding Mother’s Day request and got a little payback during the clip. Watch the video to see what happened!
