A close relationship`with your mum is certainly something special, though actor Brooke Shields believes that it got all a bit much.
In a recent interview, Shields has opened up about her relationship with her late mother Teri, and unfortunately, she is not exactly full of praise for her.
In the interview, Shields promoted her tell-all documentary Pretty Baby, while also discussing her personal life with Barrymore.
The interview had a very relaxed feeling to it, as Shields and Barrymore sat hand-in-hand on the sofa.
Shields claimed that Teri never dated anyone because she was 'needy' and 'in love with her' instead.
On the US chat show, Barrymore related to what Shields had to say, as she shared her own stories about her topsy turvy relationship with her mother Jaid Barrymore.
When Shield's was asked if her mother had dated any of her former partners, like Barrymore's mother had, The Blue Lagoon star said: "No, because she was in love with me," before adding that Teri had no interest in men while her daughter's career was taking off.
"I was her main focus. Both of us were cut off from our sexuality," she said.
This then prompted Barrymore to open up about her relationship with mother Jaid, who decided to take the controversial decision of trying to date her boyfriend.
"My mom was so enamored with me that she wanted to be with the people I was with," the talkshow host said.
Shields responded: "I get it. It's so needy and weird," before adding that Teri would attend every interview she was ever involved in, which Shields seemingly doesn't agree with now.
She said: "No one's going to get you. I'm going to be there. I'm there first. You're mine. I'm not going to give you to somebody.
"Under the guise of protection, but it was more ownership and fear."
However, Shields recalls not having much of a problem with it at the time, as she felt the pressure to keep going with her career.
She concluded: "I did a movie and we got a car. All I knew was keep my mother alive, keep dancing and get stuff.
"But to emerge from it not angry or jaded … it's something in your character. It's in my character."
