Everyone, at some point in their life, has had a mom. And we're sure in their own special way, those women were all very hardworking, ass-kicking pillars of the community ready to take on any challenge that faced them, and could probably do it better than any man! That's part of what makes moms so sexy. Of course, great looks, strong muscles, and a willingness to time travel or engage in an epic space war also help.
Today, we're here to celebrate 13 of cinema's hottest moms of all time. From the original cougar Anne Bancroft in The Graduate to Emilia Clarke as the mother of the apocalypse, here are the sexiest MILFS to ever grace the silver screen. You have to agree... don't you?

After watching the trailers for the new Vacation, we're not sure what smart, brave Debbie Griswold sees in Rusty. But it's probably the same endearing quality that attracted Ellen to Clark. Like Grandma Griswold before her, Debbie has two young kids to take care of, and they're quite a handful. When it comes to taking a family vacation, Debbie and Ellen are clearly equals, and obviously the captains of their ship, so why not celebrate them together?
Ok, so SPOILER alert! Rosie Huntington-Whiteley isn't a mom for very long in Mad Max: Fury Road, but she brings one of the creepiest, most terrifying birth scenes to the big screen in a long time, and she continues to look great doing it, even after she fights off an army of War Boys and rolls under the wheels of a giant car.
Marvel is sort of like Disney, it doesn't have a lot of time or room for mothers (just ask Black Widow!). But that all changed with the appearance of Linda Cardellini in Avengers 2. She is not only the mother of Hawkeye's two children, she also gives the man a reason to fight for truth, justice and the American way. Did we also mention that Linda Cardellini is a freak, a geek, and a former Don Draper fling? All through it, she has also been Velma and came out on top in her tussle with Danny Rayburn. This chick is one tough mother!
If Jennifer Lopez moved into your neighborhood, you'd never wear sweatpants around the culdesac again! Now imagine you can see her changing through your bedroom window! Too bad for our hero mom, Jennifer Lopez has to deal with a real psycho when she decided to get sweaty with the boy next door. By the end, she proves just why you don't mess around with an older lady. This is one woman who has had Enough! We're sure she's praying for a nicer neighbor next time. Perhaps an elderly couple?
5 JoBeth Williams in Poltergeist
Has there ever been a cooler movie mom? She smokes pot in front of her kids, refuses to leave the house after a scary ghost terrorizes her, and she even has time for a hot bath after swimming around in the mud with a bunch dead, angry Indian corpses. Sure, Rosemarie DeWitt in the new Poltergeist is no Milf to sneeze at, but if we want one ghostbusting babe in our corner, it's clearly JoBeth!
Dee Wallace was one strong, fierce single mother, and we dare you to find another woman who was as sexy doing it! Three kids and an alien can't be an easy life to contend with. But she does it with grace and poise, and even had time to dress up like a sexy kitten on Halloween. She literally defines the term 'cougar' in this iconic kids movie.
