Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the tradition of Sisters, the bestselling coffee-table book that featured photographs of and essays by sisters both famous and not, comes Hollywood Moms, showcasing the photography of Joyce Ostin with an introduction by Carrie Fisher. Among the mothers and daughters included are Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson (on the cover); Rosanna and Patricia Arquette holding a photo of their deceased mom, Mardiningish Arquette; Dyan Cannon and Jennifer Grant; and Jennifer Lopez with her mom, Guadalupe. Among the best are apparently unposed, private moments, such as Rosie O'Donnell concentrating intently on her daughter, Chelsea. With a projected first printing of 50,000 copies, this book has the makings of a hot-selling Mother's Day gift.

From Booklist

Ostin's book gilds the popular relationship photo-book concept with the sheen of showbiz. Each black-and-white picture in it displays a mother and daughter or daughters, and sometimes a granddaughter or three. At least one woman in each picture is an entertainment pro, and at least one person in each picture responds to the question, "What are the most nourishing moments you've shared with your mother or daughter?" Ostin is a very professional photographer, capable of making even Madonna look natural and nurturing. The likes of Debbie Reynolds, Candice Bergen, Gillian Anderson, Sheryl Crow, and Vanna White are naturally less challenging but, happily hugging their daughters, no less endearing. Ray Olson

I only needed to see the title of this book "Hollywood Moms" and knew it was going to be an extraordinary and picturesque book. The women, their daughters and their own mom's pictured in the book are beauties all in their own right. After reading this book what captured me, was the outstanding work and dedication of Joyce Ostin. I was amazed even after her having and surviving breast cancer, she made me realize we all should still "celebrate" and be so very proud and honored of our womanhood and motherhood. As I am a proud Mom of a remarkable son that I adore so completely, I can absolutely understand the joys and the ups and downs of the greatest "wonder of life" called "Motherhood." PS Maybe we will soon see a book entitled "Hollywood Moms & Sons." Thank you and God Bless

I thought the photography was uninspired. The best photo was the cover shot which is probably why it was chosen. I found the text boring and a lot of the shots without any debth of feeling which is astounding when you consider the subject matter.

A beautiful book about beautiful people and the most beautiful people

in their lives, beautiful not qualified as merely the superficial of looks.

The photography is absolutely wonderful, and so are the quick bits of

insight from Hollywood actresses (mostly, some are writers and such)

about some of the most meaningful people in their lives, namely their

mothers and/or daughters, who aren't so well known or covered in

celebrity media in what they mean to the actresses as human beings.

If only celebrity news coverage could be so insightful more often...
