Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow's Mom: Hollywood's Favorite Mother (INFOGRAPHIC)

Blythe Danner is Gwyneth Paltrow's mom in real life, but the actress has an entire brood of famous children onscreen. From Cameron Diaz to Christina Applegate and Maura Tierney, Danner has played mom to a bundle of Hollywood starlets -- including her own daughter. Blythe starred with Gwyneth in 2003's"Sylvia."

Danner's best known mom role is Dina Byrnes, Robert De Niro's WASP-y wife in 2000's "Meet the Parents," and its subsequent sequels, 2004's "Meet the Fockers" and 2010's "Little Fockers."

Of course, she doesn't stop there. In 2005 -- and 2006 -- Blythe took home the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of a manipulative-yet-irreverent mom in "Huff." Hank Azaria played her optimistic son Craig, a complete contrast to her other famous TV son, Will Truman, on "Will & Grace."

Danner even played Kate Capshaw's mom in 1999's romantic comedy "The Love Letter." (We're still trying to wrap our heads around that one.)

To celebrate Mother's Day, HuffPost Entertainment is honoring Hollywood's favorite mom -- and one of ours too! -- Blythe Danner. Just hover over any of the famous faces below to see when they played Blythe's TV/movie children.

CORRECTION: We got a little finger happy and added a "D" to Paget Brewster's name. We apologize for that.

Greg Focker (Stiller) is completely in love with Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo), and views their upcoming trip to her parents' house on Long Island (where her sister is to be married during the weekend) as a perfect opportunity to ask her to marry him. Once Greg is introduced to Pam's parents, however, things stampede steadily downhill. Pam's father, Jack (Robert De Niro), takes an instant and obvious dislike to his daughter's boyfriend, lambasting him for his job as a nurse and generally making Greg painfully aware of the differences between him and Pam's family. Where Greg is grubby, relatively unambitious, and Jewish, Pam comes from a long line of well-mannered, blue-blooded WASPs.
