VIDEO: Stars Reveal Their Moms' Best Advice!

In celebration of Mother's Day, Jason Segel, Chelsea Handler and other stars dish on the life lessons their mothers taught them


With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's time to tell Mom how much you appreciate all she's done -- from teaching you to roast a chicken to dishing out (sometimes unsolicited!) relationship advice.

To gear up for the holiday, iVillage asked celebrities what maternal wisdom their mothers have passed down, and their answers ranged from sweet and sentimental to silly and fun.

"My mother taught me to be nice to everybody," says Jason Segel. "She said something to be me before I left home. She said, 'I want you to always remember that the person you are in this world is a reflection of the job I did as a mother.'"

"I was always very compassionate -- even though that probably sounds surprising to people," says comedian Chelsea Handler. "If somebody's upset or going through a hard time, I get very emotional and I want to fix it right away. And that's definitely like my mother. She's very empathatic and compassionate."
