VIDEO: Stars Share Their Moms' Best Advice!

Celebs (Kate Hudson! Russell Brand!) tell iVillage the sage words their mothers have passed along. Don't touch that outlet!


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 hilariously wacky.

"If you have a tough road in front of you, it's your responsibility to make it as joyful for yourself as you possibly can," says Jennifer Garner about her mom Pat.

But Russell Brand's takeaway from his mom Barbara was a little more practical. "She went, 'Russell, don't touch that,'" the funnyman jokes. "I'll never forget that day, it was good advice...It was an electric plug."
