I'm not a big fan of doing what my mother wants me to do, like any daughter.
I think, when you are growing up, you have to pull apart from what your mother wants or needs. You've got to go your own way, and that's what I did. Alice Munro
My mother always wanted to be an actress. She was an extra in movies and stuff. I have a feeling this is the classic story: The mother wants to be an actress, and the child ends up doing it. But it was never a jealousy thing between us. It was like - well, I was making my mom happy. Kristy McNichol
No mother wants to hear her son say he's gay. Those two words rip the picture of a daughter-in-law and grandchildren into pieces. I felt sorry for my mom and wanted her to know everything was going to be all right. But then she said, 'I don't really care, Johnny, as long as I know that you are going to be happy.' Johnny Weir
