“My kid is so funny. She always pretends that she has to go to work. I have an office at Sony and every time my kid starts packing up and putting stuff on her jacket, I say: “Where are you going?” She’ll reply: “Work!” And I’ll say: “Where are you working today?” And she’ll reply: “Sony.” So I’ll ask her if she’s writing and she’ll say: “Making a movie…” So, she knows I make movies.”- Adam Sandler
“I call her ‘Fifty Fifty Sadie. When she’s nice to Aniston, I’m in a good mood. When she’s nuts I’m like, ‘Sadie, come here for a minute. That’s Aniston! It’s fine.'” Adam Sandler joking about Sadie’s relationship with co-star Jennifer Aniston.

We often hear of Angelina Jolie‘s philanthropic missions, however this mama is far from alone when it comes to giving back. Actresses Chandra Wilson, Alyson Hannigan, and Julie Bowen are all advocates for various charities, along with a long list of many others.
Working Mother has complied a list of celebrity moms who are making good of their celebrity status:
Mom-of-three Chandra Wilson: Joined the Downy Touch of Comfort program which delivers personalized, hand-made quilts to children staying in Children’s Miracle Network hospitals throughout the country. Of the program the Grey’s Anatomy star says, “As a mom, most of my life focuses on caring for my children and making sure they are safe and secure wherever they may be. It brings me a great deal of joy to be a part of this program and know that Downy is partnering with these wonderful organizations to help children feel more comforted and at ease in an unfamiliar and sometimes intimidating place.”
Mom-of-two Kristi Yamaguchi: Launched the Always Dream Foundation which partners with local organization across the country to help children in many different situations improve their lives and do what might not have been possible without this special kind of support. Of the organization Yamaguchi says, “I realize that the dreams and accomplishments I have fulfilled are a direct result of my family’s nurture and love. While I have been supported in the pursuit of my dreams, I realize that such opportunities do not exist for all children. For that reason, I felt the desire to create an organization whose sole purpose would be to inspire and embrace the hopes and dreams of children.”

Teen mom Bristol Palin is paying the bills just like most parents, supporting herself and son Tripp by working a full-time job. Palin told PEOPLE that despite her mom’s reported millions, she does not receive any financial support from ex-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and husband Todd, “[My parents] are there for support when I need it emotionally, but I’m on my own financially. I work an 8-to-5 job, five days a week. My parents help out, but they’re not at my disposal. I think that’s a huge misconception.”
The teen abstinence and safe-sex advocate also says most of her earnings go towards supplies and childcare for 16-month-old son Tripp, “I’d say the majority of any paycheck I ever receive is going to Tripp. Child care is very expensive, formula is expensive, diapers are expensive – and you don’t think about that as a kid, at all.”
Palin may rest a bit easier now, TMZ is reporting that ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston is taking on some of the financial burden. Johnston has paid $21,000 in back child support and the past two months has paid the agreed upon monthly amount of $1,750 on time.
Despite the challenges she faces as teenage mother working full-time, Palin is determined to have a college education, “I’m trying to chip away as much as I can on college, but this semester it was nearly impossible. I want to beat that statistic of teen moms not graduating from college.”
