If you are lucky, family is the one thing that will never fade. Take care of your family and they will take care of you. Remember the look on your parents face when you brought home a dandelion from outside for them? Or the time you made them a homemade whatchamacallit for Christmas?
That look grows and grows throughout the years, and sometimes we take it for granted, we also have taken for granted the constant nagging of a brother or sister. One important thing that grows with age is the admiration we have for these people, who through thick and thin, have never left our sides. We owe our lives to these people, because without them we wouldn’t be who we are. We look for that quality of family values in our significant others, and it’s just an extra perk to see that in our most beloved celebrities.
With The Oscars tomorrow, we wanted to relive some of our favorite celebrity-family red carpet dates. Who would you bring along if you were up for an Oscar?
