Academy-Award nominees Michael Fassbender, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto have ditched their girlfriends in favor of their moms as hot dates for the glitzy ceremony on Sunday, with Michael, 36, flying his parents over from Ireland for the event. A source told The Sun: ”[Michael’s] parents are on their way from Kerry. He has been seeing model Madalina Ghenea recent months but won’t be walking the red carpet with her.” Meanwhile, Bradley’s girlfriend Suki Waterhouse won’t feel too left out when he attends the prestigious ceremony with his mother, as the couple are tipped to meet later on in the evening. Jared, 42, previously credited his mom for his success and said he likes taking her to red carpet events as a way of thanking her.
He said: ”We were born very poor and into pretty humble surroundings. My mother always wanted to do something better with her life and for her children. She was a dreamer and a worker. The biggest lesson she taught me was to dream and then to do the work that it takes to make dreams a reality. It has been fun to bring her around. The best part of these opportunities to stand up and say something is to be able to thank the people who have believed in you for so long. I could spend every single one of these events thanking my mother. She’s the best.”
