Leslie Mann and Maude Apatow talk beauty and work together


Actors and mother-daughter duo Leslie Mann and Maude Apatow are known for making heads turn on the big screen. The great comedian, Mann, has starred in many funny movies like “Knocked Up”, “This is 40” and “The Other Woman” to name a few. While her oldest daughter, Apatow, who has starred alongside her mother in some of those comedy classics, she is probably best known now for her role in the groundbreaking series “Euphoria.”

However, a love of acting (and a strong funny bone) isn’t all the two share. When it comes to their morning routines and most-used beauty products, you’ll find that their list of must-haves is nearly identical, which could be because they’re in the habit of loan each other’s things.

“No! I didn’t take [the hair mask]! I got mine,” Apatow emphasized to Shop TODAY. Mann joked that his oldest daughter stole her favorite Virtue hair mask.

Although the jury is still out on who might have taken what, the couple share a lot, including beauty advice. If there’s one piece of advice Mann has made sure to pass on to her children, it’s the skin care advice she learned from her own mother and grandmother. “I saw [them] be really good at hydrating, drinking lots of water and being healthy and taking care of yourself. so i did the same Y encouraged my children to do the same,” he said.

“I never used to moisturize,” Apatow admitted to us, until his mother stressed the importance of doing so.

“There was a time when you told me I needed to hydrate, Mom. Since then, I always have.” Now Apatow credits his good skin for following that advice, saying staying hydrated and moisturized is “the most important thing every day” to look healthier and brighter.

“Sometimes I go overboard though and it just looks super greasy,” Mann joked.

“That’s one of your signature looks,” Maude joked, stating that her mother’s love of facial oils gave her a signature glow.

The importance of hydration makes sense to the pair of Jergens brand ambassadors. As part of their role, they like to showcase their close relationship on TV, which is why they’re so supportive of Jergen’s upcoming “A Mom is a Mom” ​​campaign, which aims to show how generational love doesn’t fit one mold. or definition. .

“The Mother’s Day campaign is really cool because they’re celebrating all the moms and mother figures,” says Mann. “It’s a really cool and inclusive campaign!”

Of her preference for Mother’s Day, Mann told us she appreciates sentimental gifts from her two daughters, Maude and her youngest daughter Iris.

“I like homemade gifts,” Mann said. “I have a little knitted cat next to me that Iris made for me and a jar that she put a little Post-it on that says, ’10 things I love about you.’ And then inside the jar he wrote the 10 things she loves about me. She sits next to my bed. That’s the kind of thing I like,” Mann said. “So get to work, Maude!”

Of his daughters, Mann gushed about working with them and seeing them flourish.

“It’s fun to watch them grow as creative people,” says the proud mom. “I just think about the world of both of them. They’re both so smart and creative and have such a great work ethic.”

Next, we asked the couple to fill us in on their beauty bag must-haves. From Apatow’s new favorite makeup brushes to the conditioner that helps Mann keep her curls and more.
