Toni Collette Has the Best Reaction to Being Dubbed 'Mommy'

'Mother' is definitely mothering right now.

Toni Collette has been dominating in Hollywood for years now, but she's only just received her latest nickname: "Mommy." 

The Hereditary actress is among the latest slew of celebrities who the internet has dubbed "Mother," or "Mommy," which is online slang for describing a more seasoned, influential woman.

We asked Collette, 50, how she feels about the new nickname during the New York City premiere of Prime Video's The Power on Thursday, March 23—and her response was purely flawless.

While chatting with Parade during Thursday's event, Collette appeared very surprised to hear that many internet users have been calling her "Mommy," as she widened her eyes and had a look of confusion take over her face.

"Someone just told me the other day I am 'the mother,' and I was like, 'I never quite heard that,'" she shared, letting out an apprehensive giggle.

But she seemed fairly amused and even flattered by the notion, exclaiming, "What an honor!" during the conversation.

Collette will definitely be bringing the "mothering" energy in the Amazon Prime Video series, in which she plays the mayor of Seattle, Margot Cleary-Lopez, a role she said she found inspiration for in powerful real-life female politicians, including Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, better known as AOC.

Collette told Parade she drew inspiration from "women who are actually representative of the people, and actually have really good intentions and seem to be fairly egoless and want to good for all of humanity."

The Power, a dystopian, supernatural thriller series based on Naomi Alderman's novel of the same name, will premiere on Amazon Prime on Friday, March 31.
