Mom will make it better!

She confirmed her split from her husband on Saturday, and Mamie Gummer headed straight for some home comforts.   On Sunday she was spotted spending some quality time with her mother Meryl Streep in Vancouver,  Canada.   It looked like an outing with her famous family member was just what the doctor ordered, as mother and daughter were both seen giggling away as they left a hotel together.


Meryl, 63, was dressed in a colourful printed shirt under an oversized black cardigan and matching trousers and clunky heels.   Meanwhile Mamie, 29, kept comfortable in a soft white knit top, baggy dove grey pants, black canvas shoes and a chunky scarf.   Both Mamie and estranged husband Benjamin Walker confirmed to Us Weekly via their representatives that they had ended their relationship.

The Side Effects actress’ spokesperson insists that, ‘it’s very amicable,’ however.


The couple engaged in 2009 and wed in July of 2011 at Mamie’s parents’ estate in Connecticut.   When the two met while performing in the spring 2008 production of Les Liasons Dangereuses on Broadway, actor Benjamin cited the big movie hit of the same name to say that Mamie ‘was the Uma to my Keanu.’

Meryl’s eldest daughter has recently been the star of two failed television series – 2012’s Emily Owens, M.D. and 2011’s Off the Map.

Conversely, her husband has seen better results.   The 30-year-old actor has been starring as Brick in the current New York production of Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which had its last showing on Saturday.

Throughout his interview, Mamie sent him two texts.

‘What, Mamie?’ he joked with the interviewer. ‘She always worries about me in these things, and rightfully so.   ‘I don’t have much experience doing it, so I never know when I’m going to sound like an ass.’
