In a three-photo slideshow shared on her Instagram feed, Paltrow posed with her kids and Danner as they soaked up the sun together. "Wrapped up 2022 with a lot of ❤️ and a little bit of 🌊," the actress and Goop founder/CEO wrote in her caption. Danner is an Emmy-winning actress known for her roles in Meet the Parents and on Will & Grace, and has appeared in films like 1776; The Prince of Tides; To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and Forces of Nature. She also has dozens of stage credits under her belt. Perhaps most notably, Danner played Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire on Broadway, which earned her a Tony Award nomination in 1988 — her second, after a 1980 nod for her performance in the play Betrayal.

After two surgeries and years of exploring alternative treatments, Danner underwent a third surgery with Dr. Mark DeLacure in 2020, which succeeded in removing the cancerous tissue. "My mother is genuinely one of the strongest people I know," Paltrow told PEOPLE in November 2022, noting Danner's journey with three surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. "I hope if I ever go through anything like that, I can be like her," she added.
