The actress, who is the daughter of actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, received many cherished gifts from the late actress, but she holds the luggage dear because of the history behind it.

"She gave me incredible things and in fact her... luggage from her whole life she gave me, which I have and covet to this day," she told Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday (22Mar17). "Just to know all the movies and experiences that she had, it's a beautiful treasure.

"I have to get them truly restored. Right now they're pieces of art in my house."

Another perk of growing up in a famous household was opening the front door to celebrity party guests.

"The cast of Taxi walked into my house; that was a huge moment for me," she said. "It was pretty exciting. It was terrifying and pretty amazing."
