She's a legend!

For people who may not quite remember Ross' phenomenal career, here's a refresher course: she starred in the all-time classic The Graduate as Elaine Robinson for which she earned a best supporting actress nomination.

Ross also got to star alongside her dashing hunk of a husband in 2017's The Hero, her first film in 10 years. But when she's not busy holding it down onscreen, the ageless actress is something of a hero to their daughter Cleo Rose.

In a sweet pre-birthday post celebrating her mom days ago, Cleo called the actress her best friend and rock. And for the birthday post, she opted for a simple, fun photo of herself hanging out with Ross and a few friends.


My best friend, my rock. Love you Mom💗

It's great to see the mom and daughter happy together after their messy fight years ago that devolved into death threats, murder attempts, and restraining orders.
