The reason her daughter fired her from her post

According to the report, Melanie was her daughter’s manager until she fired her in 2009, leading her into financial trouble by 2012

She managed her daughter since her film debut in the fantasy comedy North in 1996 when her daughter was just nine years old. 

After her daughter fired her, she claimed that she no longer could afford to buy a $1.4 million Manhattan apartment after signing the contract three weeks before in 2011.

Scarlett, via Vanity Fair in 2009, confessed to coming up with the decision to fire her mom because she felt she needed to move more independently away from her family after her first marriage to Ryan Reynolds in 2008 and also Melanie was living outside her means. 

As per the sources, her daughter initially provided her with the allowance and generous severance package but then when she felt her partner Gilles Arondeau wasn’t doing his share of work and didn’t want to support her extravagant lifestyle while her partner wasn’t working. 

However, Melanie’s bond with her daughter is still strong. 

When Scarlett was honored for her contribution to fighting against AIDS at the AmFAR New York Gala, her daughter took her as her date. 

Scarlett gushed about how incredible she had been for her, mainly as a young girl. 

According to her, her mom never shielded them from what was going on in the Zeitgeist in culture. 

She credited her for making them socially aware and encouraging them to be politically and socially active. So for all those reasons, she couldn’t imagine a better date that night.

Her love for movies inspired her daughter in her acting career

Her love for movies and making her children watch them from a young age inspired Scarlett in her acting career. 

During an acceptance speech in November 2021 when she was honored as the 35th recipient of the American Cinematheque, Scarlett revealed that her mom started showing her movies when they were quite young, among which some of the movies included age-inappropriate movies like Silence of the Lambs and Schindler’s List

She said when she was as young as three, her mom showed her every catalog of movies she loved watching while she was a child and would swoon every time Montgomery Clift was on the screen. 

She recounted watching Schindler’s List at the theatre when she was nine and got haunted by the little girl in the red coat and when anyone questioned her mom about her parenting approach, she would say that all of her children were mature enough, she added.

Scarlett, in the end, said her passion for performance came from watching all those movies repeatedly.
