These celebrities' mom texts are hilariously relatable.

In honor of Mother's Day, Jimmy Kimmel asked celebrities to read very real texts from their own moms:

It did not disappoint.

Anna Faris' mom, for instance, said she believes her daughter is the greatest actress of her generation but also needs Faris to remember to wear sunscreen.

And that's a message urgent enough to send at 3:34 a.m.

Then there's Jack McBrayer. He sends his mom a Christmas ornament for the tree every holiday season. But after receiving the last one, she had quite the morbid response.

"Thank you, Jack. Hope you live long enough to see it in person."

Kristen Bell's mom asked her daughter for insider information on who was going to take home Academy Awards.

Because Oscar hosts can just pass out that information like candy apparently.

Tony Hale's mom was supportive but also candid about her complete failure to keep up with her son's on-screen storylines.

Will Forte's mom enjoyed sending her son a series of duck emojis.

Literally that was it.

Anthony Anderson's mom had a straightforward (if not unusual) demand of her son for Mother's Day: a room in Vegas. Now.

As any mom should!

OK, so some (most?) moms aren't experts at texting.

But who cares? Tech-savviness isn't a prerequisite to good parenting, right? Unconditional love — now that's a little more necessary.

If you're celebrating a mom in your life who has gone above and beyond this Mother's Day, make sure to text — or maybe pick up the phone and actually call — to express how much they mean to you.

Happy Mother's Day! 💖

Los Angeles is experiencing a homeless epidemic that was years in the making.

Over the past six years, the unhoused population in the city has risen 75 percent. The city's lack of homeless shelters and affordable housing has forced many who can't afford L.A.'s sky-high rents to live on the streets.

According to LAist, since 2000, renter incomes have decreased by 3 percent while rents have gone up 32 percent.

While the city has launched a $100 million-per-year program to help the problem, rapper, entrepreneur, and actor Jaden Smith has found his own way of responding to the crisis: love.

Mom and blogger Mary Katherine Backstrom regularly shares snippets of life with her two children on her Facebook page. One particularly touching interaction with her daughter is melting hearts and blowing minds due to the three-year-old's wise words about forgiveness.

Even adults struggle with the concept of forgiveness. Entire books have been written about how and why to forgive those who have wronged us, but many still have a hard time getting it. Who would guess that a preschooler could encapsulate what forgiveness means in a handful of innocent words?

Social media may be "ruining society" according to a lot of people's grandparents. But it's also a pretty helpful tool for spotting racists and publicly shaming them. Incidentally, a lot of those racists are also people's grandparents... kinda makes you think, hmmm?

Recently, two elderly white ladies were spotted in a Burger King in Central Florida being racist towards a man who they overheard speaking Spanish. That man turned out to be the manager.

Some nearby customers were filming the incident and posted the video online where it's gone viral. "Go back to Mexico," says one of the women. "If you want to keep speaking Spanish, go back to your Mexican country." She then continues: "this is America. Our main language is English. ... Speak your Mexican at home."

The U.S. women's soccer team won the Women's World Cup, but the victory is marred by the fact that the team is currently fighting for equal pay. In soccer, the game is won by scoring points, but the fight for equal pay isn't as clearly winnable and the playing field isn't as even.

We live in a world where winning the World Cup is easier than winning equal pay, but co-captain Megan Rapinoe says there's one easy way fans can support the team: Go see games.

Some people argue the men's team deserves to get paid more because they are more successful and earn more money for the United States Soccer Federation. Pay depends on merchandise and ticket sales, and in general, men's sporting events tend to draw a bigger crowd than women's sporting events. It's not about sex, many argue; it's about the fact that people just prefer to see men play.
