Mothers Who Have Famously Exploited Their Celebrity Children

By  | 

Behind nearly every famous child, you will find a mother with her eyes on stardom. From the beginning of films, it seems that there have always been parents willing to expose their children to the seedy world of acting and performing for the sake of pursuing fame. Our most notables include Teri Shields and Jaid Barrymore, who were noted to take their children to Studio 54 and sign off on sexualized images of their daughters, respectively. But among our picks, you may find some lesser knowns, including the parents of Shirley Temple and the mother of Marion Davies who signed off her daughter’s relationship with newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst for the sake of Marion’s career.
