The actor known for his iconic 80s films including Police Academy, Cocoon, and Three Men And A Baby is one of twelve celebrity contestants on the new season of Dancing With The Stars, and Guttenberg is mastering his moves just for his mom.
Guttenberg is doing the show to pay homage to his mom and dad, who recently had their 50th wedding anniversary and are huge fans of Dancing With The Stars.
But The Guttes biggest fans are also his toughest critics.
His parents recently flew out to Los Angeles from New York to sit in on Guttenbergs dance rehearsal with partner Anna Trebunskaya, and Mom had plenty of pointers.
Guttenberg says, She kept telling me that I needed to work on my posture and try harder. She just wants me to do well, so it was very sweet. Im trying my best!
Hes hoping to pick up enough dance moves so that he can do more social dancing, but hes still keeping his eye on the prize: The coveted championship mirror-ball trophy.
Dancing With The Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
