I've never been a big fan of Mother's Day only because my birthday is May 9th and it sometimes falls either on Mom's Day or the day before (like this year). And since I'm an egotistical bastard who likes to have an entire day dedicated to me and my awesomeness, having to share that day with someone else is a total drag. But we love our moms, and without them none of us would have ever been born. So, as is customary with this time of year, we're beginning to see movie-related mom lists pop up online -- and over at Fandango they asked 3,500 readers to cast their votes for both the sexiest movie mom and scariest movie mom in contemporary cinema (meaning within the past 30 years).
Yes, it freaks me out that thirty years back brings us only to 1979, but the sad fact remains that a lot of today's youth (ie: the people participating in these polls) aren't as familiar with the cinema of the past as they should be. So, with that said, leading the pack in the sexiest movie mom category is a motion-captured Angelina Jolie in Beowulf. Yup, their choice for sexiest mom isn't even real! Behind her you have Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich), Beyonce Knowles (Obsessed), Diane Lane (Unfaithful) and Jennifer Aniston (Marley and Me), who rounds out the top five.
When it comes to scariest movie moms, Faye Dunaway (Mommie Dearest) takes the top spot, with Jane Fonda (Monster-in-Law), Angelina Jolie (Beowulf), Anne Ramsey (Throw Momma from the Train) and Madea (Madea Goes to Jail) rounding out the top five. Surely they've missed a few hot, scary moms in this survey (ahem, Linda Hamilton,Terminator - to name one glaring omission) ... care to name a few more?
