The Biggest Celebrity Mommy’s Boys

Even with a world of women falling at their feet, there are plenty of celebrity mommy's boys out there, but which dashing Hollywood hunks would ditch you at an Award ceremony in favour of their mother? A surprising amount, as it turns out…

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper still lives with his mom, Gloria, in Los Angeles after his father died from cancer. He thinks living together in close quarters has helped them both with his passing. However, apparently the situation isn’t without it’s problems. He told Details magazine: “It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing. She’s a cool chock. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches.”

Jared Leto

Jared Leto pretty much dedicated his speech to his mother and it was just so lovely. He had also taken her to the Oscars, and gave her a slice of Ellen DeGenere’s Hollywood pizza when she got a little peckish. What a sweetheart!

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo loves his momma, and bought her a house with his Hollywood earnings, bless him. Irmelin handles all her baby boy’s finances, and after performing in Blood Diamond, he said in an interview that the only person he would ever buy a diamond for is his mother. Naw.

Colin Farrell

Colin loves taking mommy Rita to award evenings, and calls her his “best friend.” Adorable.

Justin Timberlake

When Ashton Kutcher punks Justin Timberlake by setting up that his house was being repossessed, his first instinct was to call his mother and told her to get over there as soon as possible. Sometimes you need your mom to sort our life out, okay?!


Zac Efron

Zefron’s mommy was there to help him with the paparazzi, taking his arm and leading him through whilst grinning widely and obviously enjoying that so many people have confirmed her long-suspected beliefs that her son is the absolute greatest. We’d be proud too Starla!

Shia LeBeouf

Shia LeBeouf gets creepy describing his affection for his mother. He said: “Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She’s an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren’t my mother, as sick as that sounds.”


Liam and Noel Gallagher

The Oasis boys might not be speaking to each other, but these two lurve their mom. It was Peggy who bought Noel his first guitar, and when Liam’s partner Patsy walked out on him, guess who moved in to cheer him up? We love ya Peg!

Robbie Williams

Robbie dedicated his Frank Sinatra concert at the Royal Albert Hall to his mother dearest and took her to the world premiere of his film Nobody Somewhere. Janet is one lucky lady!
