Top Celebs People Want to Play Their Mom in a Film

If people could create a movie about the life and history of their mom, who would play her on the big screen?

According to new research, Meryl Streep is the celebrity that people want most to play their mom in a movie.

The trusted honor of bringing Moms' story to life is also bestowed to Sally Field, who played Mom to Forrest Gump and landed in second place followed by Julia Roberts rounding out the top three female celebrities that people want to see play the role of their mom.

With Mother's Day just around the corner, the study conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Groupon examined the unique life stories of Moms everywhere and the relationship we have with our mothers and found that a plurality of respondents (27 percent) said that no one can play their mom but Mom herself.

Other celebs that made it into the top 10 list of people that Americans would want to see play the role of their mom on the silver screen included real-life mom of two, Jennifer Lopez and real-life mom of six, Angelina Jolie.

Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Obama, Melissa McCarthy and Queen Latifah rounded out the top 10.

While 89 percent of those surveyed said they know a great deal about their mom's life, that doesn't mean they aren't eager to learn more.

Seventy-two percent of those surveyed revealed they still want to know even more than they already do about their mom.

It just so happens that Americans are curious about what their mom was like before they were even born.

Sixty-seven percent of those studied revealed that they wish they knew more about their mom's life prior to them being born.

What did the survey find that people know the most and least about their mom's life story?

It turns out, Americans are confident about knowing where their mom grew up (74 percent), where she went to high school or college (60 percent), the street she grew up on (50 percent), her first job (49 percent), and her genealogy and ancestry (48 percent).

When it comes to what Americans know least about their mom's past, it's more subtle things like how many pets she had as a kid, old partner(s), her favorite subject in school, her hobbies as a kid, and what she wanted to be when she grew up.

"Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to not only celebrate what your mom has done for you, but what she's done throughout her entire life," said Groupon President of North America Aaron Cooper.

"While most of us feel like we know everything we possibly can about our mom, these results show that there's a strong appetite -- and room for improvement -- to learn even more about her life story and the passions that drive her interests." In addition, less than half of survey respondents knew their mom's favorite food (45 percent), flower (37 percent), song (30 percent), movie (29 percent), clothing store (28 percent), travel destination (23 percent), actor/actress (21 percent) and alcoholic drink (21 percent).

But, that doesn't mean Americans don't have opinions about what they think their mom was like before they were born.

Nearly a quarter (24 percent) think their mom had better style when she was their age.

A further 46 percent think that their mom went through a rebellious phase while another 23 percent think their mom was more wild than them.

And when it comes to the character traits that people reportedly got from their mom, compassion topped the list -- with nearly half (49 percent) admitting to getting this quality from their mom.

Other character traits that people think they got from their mom include sensitivity (44 percent), work ethic (40 percent), sense of humor (37 percent), and good looks (35 percent).

"Groupon has a number of different ways that can help you celebrate your mom this Mother's Day, including experiences, massage and spa gifts, brunch options, deals on flowers, fashion and beauty gifts, the latest gadgets and home furnishings and promo codes and digital coupons for use online or in-store," added Cooper.
