Mother's Day is a chance for all of us to recognize the most important women in our lives. While we think of ways to honor the mothers and mother-figures who raised us, many celebrities are doing the same. We asked stars like Octavia Spencer
, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
and many more what lessons they learned from their No. 1 leading lady.
The answers vary — Dear White People director Justin Simien says "patience," while Tip claims his mom taught him "how not to forget where you came from" — but one thing is consistent across the board: it's the moms that keep these celebrities grounded.
Watch below to hear the stars give touching tributes to their mommas — and don't forget to call yours this Sunday!
