M.I.L.F.’s: Mothers I’d Like to Film. (8 of 9)

M.I.L.F.’s: Mothers I’d Like to Film” is a seasonal segment in honor of Mother’s Day holiday. It is a series of desireable actresses who are known for playing mothers on television or in film.

Mary Steenburgen (Mary Nell Steenburgen)

The elegant but daintily attractive Mary Steenburgen. She is best known for her role as  Clara Clayton in Back to the Future Part III. She’s more recently known for playing the mother in the comedy films Four Christmases, Step Brothers and The Proposal.

Steenburgen was born in Newport, Arkansas and has been married to actor Ted Danson since 1995. She is also a “close personal friend of Secretary of State and former Senator Hillary Clinton, and supported Clinton’s 2008 Presidential campaign along with her husband.”

Steenburgen moved from Arkansas to New York City in 1972 to persue acting. “Her break came when she was discovered by Jack Nicholson in the reception room of Paramount‘s New York office and was cast as the lead in his second directorial effort, the 1978 Western Goin’ South.”

The second movie mom on the list, I first saw Mary in Step Brothers. She played the loving and enabling Nancy Huff, mother of Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell). I found her adorable and hot all at once. Then after seeing her in The Proposal & Four Christmases I was officially a fan her catching smile and endearing eyes.
