We rate the hottest mothers in movies
By Mary Pols
Special to MSN Movies
In honor of Mother's Day, MSN has put together a list of incendiary cinematic mothers, or in more simple terms, hot mamas. Given how many beautiful actresses there are in the world, you'd expect this list could be endless, but the truth is not that many roles call for actresses to play women who are both mothers and sultry. Mothers in the movies are usually more to the ladylike than the earthy and seductive. Femmes fatales don't have babies. Women in rom-coms tend to be husband shopping, not producing children. But still, we found 13 mothers from the movies who are anything but matronly.
