The Many Moms of Patricia Clarkson

In the film One Day, opening today, Patricia Clarkson plays Alison, the charming, doomed mother of boorish, upper-crust Dexter (Jim Sturgess). This follows her appearances as the charming, hip mom in Easy A; the charming, ex-groupie mother in Friends with Benefits; and the charming, sexed-up mom in the Saturday Night Live digital short “Motherlover.”

In the gallery below, we honor Hollywood’s hottest mom with a look back at a decade’s worth of her most maternal moments.
