Hottie Hunter Parrish has the most famous “mom” in Hollywood! Not only is he Silas, the older son of Mary-Louise Parker‘s character Nancy Botwin, on Showtime hit Weeds … but he’s Meryl Streep‘s son, too!
In It’s Complicated, Hunter plays Luke Adler, the lovable party boy son of Jane & Jake Adler (played by Meryl and Alec Baldwin) and at the Universal Studios screening of the the film at Chelsea Cinema on Dec. 10, Hunter told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how he feels about his on-screen moms. “Jane Adler is a fantastic mother,” Hunter gushed of Meryl’s character.
Which is a huge change from Mary-Louise on Weeds! “Nancy Botwin forgets to be a mother quite a bit. I don’t know who I would pick [to be my mom], but if there were an award the majority would pick Jane Adler as the best mom.
As for playing a totally new character, Hunter tells us “Silas and Luke are completely different. One is sort of a rebel, kind of crazy kid in Weeds with a lot of problems and a dysfunctional family. The other is a privileged, sweet kid that lives in Santa Barbara.”
Well, Hunter, whether you’re playing a dysfunctional rebel or a sweet privileged child, we hope we keep seeing a lot more of you!
