Mother's Day

My buddy, Brad Rushing, suggested for today, here's the first music video my mother was featured in -- Eminem's "Role Model". She's the nun at the 1:20 mark.

You can see her in other things, as well -- a plane passenger handing over her boarding pass in Wes Craven's "Redeye"; a juror listening as Tony Shaloub argues his case in "The Man Who Wasn't There" -- but this is the only piece of video I could find to actually link to. She was also in "Do You Hate Me Now", "Purple Hills", and a number of other music videos whose names I just don't know.

It was funny to hear her talk about meeting "Mr. Eminem" and thinking he was a very sweet young man, then discuss rap music with kids young enough to be her great-grandchildren. It freaked them out.

Such is life in Hollywood that she had more success in the business that I did.

Happy Mother's Day.
