As one of our favorite ~movie moms~ in recent film history, Blythe Danner constantly wins our hearts over and over again. You probably know her best as Dina Byrnes from Meet the Parents, but OBVIOUSLY the fabulous Ms. Danner had a long and illustrious career before this box office hit, too. She won a Tony Award for her performance in the play Butterflies Are Free and also TWO Emmy’s for her role as Izzy in the TV series Huff. NBD. And some of you may even remember her turn as Will’s mom on the iconic TV series Will & Grace. Basically, Blythe is a superstar of stage AND screen.

And, of course, she’s also Gwyneth Paltrow’s mum.

Like when she was rocking a perfectly mod look, back in 1970!
