Minka Kelly talks growing up with stripper Mom
Minka Kelly's case, she often had to be the responsible one growing up. In the October issue of Cosmopolitan magazine Minka Kelly opens up about the relationship she had with her stripper mother, Maureen Kelly prior to her death in 2008.
"She was 5'11"," the Charlie's Angels star explains. "Legs up to her ears, gorgeous. She got along on that for as long as she could."
Kelly says her mother would sometimes wake her up in the middle of the night when she got home from working at the strip club to go to the supermarket shopping. "That was like our big Friday," she recalls. "She would want me to skip school [the next morning]... I was like 'No, Mom, I've gotta go to school!'"
"I didn't know how to appreciate what good friends we were," Kelly admits. "Because I just wanted her to be my mom."
