    Actually she was his mother. The article noted that he was adopted by his parents.

    He was her adopted son, so she was not his step Mom. She was "his Mom".

    I recall one of the shows that she guest starred in and although it was a long time ago, I believe she played his Mom on that show as well. I remember thinking that was cool since she was his Mom in real life.

    MacArthur, born Dec. 8, 1937, seemed destined to become an actor. He was the adopted son of playwright Charles MacArthur and Helen Hayes, an award-winning actress often referred to as "First Lady of the American Theatre." Silent film star Lillian Gish was his godmother.

    I was thinking Helen Hayes had died fairly recently. Turns out it was 17 years ago. Now I feel older.
