5.0 out of 5 stars A MULTI STAR STANDOUT 19 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
"I love having a mother almost as much as I love being one," writes Carrie Fisher in her candid, often funny introduction to this all-star photographic lineup of Hollywood mothers, grandmothers, and offspring. Of her mom Fisher notes, "When I was younger, I thought my mother was perfect. She was beautiful. She was funny. She was loving and kind......She could only fall from the pedestal I put her on.......Having a daughter of my own made me realize what my mother had been up against while raising me." As many know, Fisher's parent isn't your routine soccer mom - she's Debbie Reynolds who says of Fisher, "I am just blessed God gave me such a wonderful daughter." Mutual admiration abounds in this gallery of over 50 luminaries who share very personal recollections of times spent with one another. Each reflection is apt testimony to the abundant strength of the mother/daughter relationship. Hilary Swank describes her mother as "the one who taught me to follow my heart, trust my instincts, and always believe in myself," while Faith Hill, the mother of two daughters opines, "There is no greater joy than the joy that a child brings." Candice Bergen pictured with her mother, Frances, and daughter, Chloe, shares a favorite pastime: "Chloe and I would (and still do) take a tray into bed, light the fire, and watch Disney videos..." Chloe mentions singing in the car together an enjoyable experience. Whether it's Jennifer Lopez, Carol Burnett, Goldie Hawn, Kelly Preston (married to John Travolta) or a host of others, each brings her unique perspective to the joys and privileges of motherhood. Photographer Ostin, a two-time breast cancer survivor, is donating all proceeds from the sale of her book to breast cancer research. She created Hollywood Moms as a symbol of hope to all women. It is that and a great deal more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebration of Motherhood 5 Jun 2001
By Barb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I only needed to see the title of this book "Hollywood Moms" and knew it was going to be an extraordinary and picturesque book. The women, their daughters and their own mom's pictured in the book are beauties all in their own right. After reading this book what captured me, was the outstanding work and dedication of Joyce Ostin. I was amazed even after her having and surviving breast cancer, she made me realize we all should still "celebrate" and be so very proud and honored of our womanhood and motherhood. As I am a proud Mom of a remarkable son that I adore so completely, I can absolutely understand the joys and the ups and downs of the greatest "wonder of life" called "Motherhood." PS Maybe we will soon see a book entitled "Hollywood Moms & Sons." Thank you and God Bless

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 22 May 2001
By gail lonergan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I thought the photography was uninspired. The best photo was the cover shot which is probably why it was chosen. I found the text boring and a lot of the shots without any debth of feeling which is astounding when you consider the subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book in Many Ways 19 Mar 2005
By Myles Delta Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A beautiful book about beautiful people and the most beautiful people

in their lives, beautiful not qualified as merely the superficial of looks.

The photography is absolutely wonderful, and so are the quick bits of

insight from Hollywood actresses (mostly, some are writers and such)

about some of the most meaningful people in their lives, namely their

mothers and/or daughters, who aren't so well known or covered in

celebrity media in what they mean to the actresses as human beings.

If only celebrity news coverage could be so insightful more often...
