Meet David Schwimmer's successful mom Arlene

David Schwimmer was born in New York City's Queens district. When he was younger he and his family moved to Los Angeles where he had his first acting experience. Later on, the Schwimmer family decided to relocate again, this time to Beverly Hills. The reason? His mother Arlene Coleman-Schwimmer was at the highest peak of her career as a divorce lawyer!

David Schwimmer's fabulous mom Arlene was born on November 2, 1940, and has been married to Arthur Schwimmer since 1964. Did you know she also has an amazing on-screen career? She appeared in her son's 1998 film Since You've Been Gone!
