The similarities between children and their grandparents might not be so noticeable at first, but sometimes there’s a striking resemblance when they stand side by side. In the world of show business, the children of celebrities often choose to continue their parents’ and grandparents’ legacy by pursuing similar careers. Although they may not reach their level of talent, their physical resemblance is pretty convincing. Check out these famous grandparents and their mini-me grandchildren.
Quinn Tivey: Grandson of Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor was one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and a few of her trademark features were her dazzling blue eyes and double row of eyelashes. Taylor got married eight times to seven different men and had a total of four children and nine grandchildren. Well, one of her grandchildren was lucky enough to score his grandmother’s good looks.
Taylor passed on her beauty to her grandson Quinn Tivey. If you put the two side by side, they have nearly an identical smile. Tivey is Liza Todd’s son and works as a trustee for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. We are sure that his cousins are envious of him!
Apple Martin: Granddaughter of Blythe Danner
Blythe Danner produced several clones, which for the sake of her inheritors is a win-win situation. Lucky for them, the former star of ‘The Great Santini’ and ‘Meet the Parents’ has some strong genes in her. Apple Martin is only 14-years-old and yet it’s apparent that she’s already rocking her grandmother’s stunning looks.
But Apple’s good looks don’t only come from her grandmother. As the daughter of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, it’s evident that her good looks were also inherited from her parents. Apple looks like a carbon copy of her mother. But still, there are some notable similarities between her and her grandmother.
Bailey Willis: Granddaughter of Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney rose to prominence as the singer and bass guitarist of the Beatles back in 1960. The band became the best selling band in history. Despite the Beatles no longer being together, McCartney hasn’t slowed down and continues to release songs. He has remained in the public eye, and by default, his family has received a lot of media attention over the years.
One of Paul’s daughters, Stella McCartney, has made quite the name for herself as a famous fashion designer. And Stella’s daughter, Bailey Willis, seems to have inherited a lot from her grandfather. She has her grandfather’s signature smile and allegedly some of his mannerisms. Well, she definitely has inherited her mother’s killer fashion sense. And who knows, maybe she’s also inherited her grandfather’s singing!
Arthur Donald: Grandson of Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney has his hands full with five children and eight grandchildren and a bunch of them were lucky enough to inherit their grandfather’s genes. If you didn’t know that Arthur was Paul’s grandson, you would have seen him and wondered to yourself “why does that guy look so familiar?”
Arthur is the oldest of McCartney’s grandchildren. The 20-year-old is the son of Mary McCartney, Paul’s daughter. Donald is currently an undergraduate student at Yale University.
Stella Banderas: Grandaughter of Tippi Hedren
When you’re born into a showbiz family, you are almost always guaranteed to be in the public eye. People just can’t help but compare you to your famous grandparents and parents, especially when you look like a mirror image of them. Stella Banderas is the 20-year-old daughter of actress Melanie Griffith and Spanish actor and director, Antonio Banderas. She is also the granddaughter of the famous actress, Tippi Hedren.
While Stella did acquire many physical traits from her parents, it’s obvious that she looks very similar to her grandmother. The two have the same eyes and nose, which are some of Tippi’s most distinguishable features, and the ones that made her a heartthrob during the height of her popularity.
Ethan Peck: Grandson of Gregory Peck
If you put a picture of Ethan Peck next to his grandfather, the late Gregory Peck, you might not be able to tell who is who, had it not been for the quality of the photo and one being in color and the other in black and white. Gregory was one of the most famous stars of the 20th century. He was nominated for an Academy Award several times and won one for his performance as Atticus Finch in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.
Well, his grandson Ethan may not be an award winner but his good looks and family connections have also landed him some pretty cool roles. He has been acting on TV and the big screen since he was young. He has had roles in ‘That 70’s Show’, ‘Passport to Paris’ alongside Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and most recently as Spock in ‘Star Trek: Discovery’.
Rose Kennedy Schlossberg: Granddaughter of Jacqueline Kennedy
Jacqueline Bouvier was born in 1929 and became one of the most famous First Ladies of the U.S. Married to former president, John F. Kennedy, she redefined the image of a First Lady with her unique elegance and strength. While Jacqueline may no longer be around, her legacy lives on, and we’re not only talking about the country, but the grandchildren she left behind.
Rose Kennedy Schlossberg has inherited the famous (and cursed) Kennedy name and a whole lot of wealth. She also inherited one other priceless attribute: Kennedy’s good looks. Schlossberg looks undeniably like her late grandmother, and she also seems to have inherited her brains. Yep, this beauty is a Harvard graduate.
Conor Kennedy: Grandson of Robert F. Kennedy
Another Kennedy who’s made our list is Conor Kennedy. Conor is Robert F. Kennedy’s grandson. Robert was one of nine children to Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., the brother of John F. Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, a philanthropist and socialite.

Theodore Howard Gabel: Grandson of Ron Howard
There are those people who look like their parents or grandparents when they grow up. And then there are those people who only look like their elder family members when they’re young. The latter is definitely the case for Theodore Howard Gabel and his grandfather Ron Howard.
Howard’s first job in show business was on ‘The Andy Griffith Show’. Theodore looks so much like his grandfather when he was this age. Howard later turned to directing and has worked on films like ‘Apollo 13’, ‘A Beautiful Mind’, and ‘The Da Vinci Code’. In 1975, he married a writer and they had 4 children together. One of his children is Bryce Dallas Howard, Theodore’s mother.
Oliver Elfman: Grandson of Peter Fonda
Talk about a family with talent, the Fondas have produced a number of well-known actors. Peter Fonda is the son of Henry Fonda and brother of Jane Fonda. Like his other family members, he is also a famous actor. Peter’s daughter, Bridget Fonda, has a son named Oliver who looks like an exact replica of his grandfather.
The two share similar eyes, freckles, and a big smile bearing their pearly white teeth. Oliver’s father, Danny, is also a famous figure in the film industry. Elfman has been involved in some big projects, like ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Edward Scissorhands’.
Dree Hemingway: Great-Granddaughter of Ernest Hemmingway
These next two family members may be of different genders, but there’s no denying their unremarkable similarities. Ernest Hemingway was born in 1899. He went on to become one of the most influential writers in history, giving us books like ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ and ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’.
Although his great-granddaughter hasn’t pursued a career as a writer, she has followed her own passions and made a prominent mark for herself. Dree Hemingway works as an actress and model. She is known for acting in independent films and shooting campaigns for major companies like Gianfranco Ferre and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Naomi deLuce Wilding: Granddaughter of Elizabeth Taylor
Naomi deLuce Wilding didn’t spend much time with her grandmother, Elizabeth Taylor. Naomi grew up in the U.K. and only saw her grandmother during the holidays. In the ’90s, she decided to relocate to New York in order to pursue a career in fashion. This put her in close proximity to her famous grandmother. It was actually Elizabeth who helped Naomi get a green card.
Naomi shared that her grandmother reassured her, ‘I’ll get you a lawyer, we’ll get you a green card, and everything will be okay.’ I came to stay with her and I never left [California].” Naomi carries on her late grandmother’s advocacy work and does a lot of work with the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. She also manages a contemporary art gallery located in Los Angeles.
Chris Pine: Grandson of Anne Gwynne
Chris Pine comes from a lineage of actors, so it’s not surprising that he decided to pursue an acting career as well. His father was most known for his role in ‘CHiPs’ and his mother acted in several T.V shows throughout the 70s and 80s. His maternal grandmother, Anne Gwynne, was one of the most famous pin-up girls during WWII. She was also an actress, known for being one of the first Scream Queens for her role in several horror films.
Anna Gwynne passed away in 2003 from a stroke. She was 84-years-old. While she passed away long ago, her legacy seems to live on through her grandson, Chris. Chris Pine and his late grandmother both have full lips and hooded eyes. They also both have that deep but sensual stare.
Cameron Douglas: Grandson of Kirk Douglas
It’s no secret to anyone that Kirk Douglas has a very distinct face. His grandson, Cameron, seems to have inherited this trait. We wonder how annoying it gets for Cameron when everyone constantly tells him that he looks like his grandfather. Well, lucky for him, he’s got a grandfather to be very proud of.
Kirk Douglas is 102-years-old! He is one of the oldest actors alive and one of the last surviving actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. His grandson, Cameron, also seems to have wanted to follow in his father, Michael, and grandfather’s footsteps. He has been in four films to date: ‘Mr. nice guy’, ‘It Runs in the Family’, ‘National Lampoon’s Adam & Eve’, and ‘Loaded’.
Aiden and Jacob: Grandsons of Dave Bautista

When he wasn’t tackling other wrestlers to the ground, he was acting. He has starred in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Blade Runner’, and ‘Avengers’, among other films. Dave’s two grandsons, Aiden and Jacob, look very similar to their former wrestler grandfather.
The eldest bears a particularly strong resemblance to Dave. Who knows, maybe his grandchildren will grow up to also become wrestlers and actors. We are sure that Dave would love to root for them.
Drew Barrymore: Granddaughter of John Barrymore
Drew Barrymore comes from a big family of actors, and as a result, she has been in the public eye since she was a baby. Her first acting gig was when she was just 11 months old, when she appeared in a dog food commercial. She had her breakout role in ‘ET’ in 1982, and has since made a name for herself as one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood.
Drew’s grandfather, John Barrymore, is considered to be the most acclaimed actor of the family. Although of different genders, John and Drew Barrymore’s looks are strikingly similar. John’s dependence on alcohol eventually led him to his death in 1942, at the age of 60. Drew’s father, John Jr., was also to die of complications with alcoholism years later, in 2004.
Anjelica Huston: Granddaughter of Walter Huston
The Hustons are considered royalty in the show business world, with three generations of family members winning an Academy Award. Both Anjelica, her father John, and John’s father, Walter, have won the award. In fact, John and Walter won an award at the same ceremony! Anjelica has acted in ‘The Grifters and Enemies: A Love Story’, ‘The Addams Family’, and many more.
Clearly, Walter has passed down his acting genes to his successors. But, he’s also passed down some physical traits as well. Despite being of opposite genders and two generations apart, it’s clear that Walter has passed on his high cheekbones to his granddaughter.
Jason Ritter: Grandson of Tex Ritter
Jason Ritter’s breakout role was in the films ‘Joan of Arcadia’ and ‘Parenthood’. Jason definitely looks like his father and his country music singing grandfather, Tex Ritter. Tex Ritter was born in 1905, in Texas. Although he went to Law school, he later decided that a career in show business was his calling.
He started off as a singer and later switched to acting in Western films during the 30s. He had two children, Tom and John. After finding out that Tom had Cerebral Palsy, he started a nonprofit organization called United Cerebral Palsy. Jason seems to have acquired his grandfather’s big smile and distinctive nose.
Viva Vadim: Grandaughter of Jane Fonda
The “how is she 81-years old” beauty that is Jane Fonda has had a very successful career consisting of acting, writing, producing, and modeling. After a few decades of very successful acting, she released her first workout video called ‘Jane Fonda’s Workout’, and it became the highest-selling VHS of all time. She released another 22 workout videos that sold over 17 million copies.
Fonda’s youthful appearance really brings out the similarities between her and her granddaughter, Viva Vadim. Viva, like her grandmother, is stunning. She was born in 2002 to Vanessa Vadim, Jane’s daughter, and her husband, Paul Waggoner. Maybe Viva will follow in her grandmother’s footsteps and become an actress as well!
Steve R. McQueen: Grandson of Steve McQueen
Steve McQueen was born in Indiana in 1930, and he rose to fame after appearing on the NBC western series, ‘Tales of Wells Fargo’. Nicknamed “The King of Cool”, he became a huge movie star in the 1960s and 1970s, acting in ‘The Sand Pebbles’, ‘The Great Escape’, ‘The Getaway’, and ‘The Magnificent Seven’. Sadly, McQueen died young at the age of 50, in Mexico.
His death was said to have been caused by mesothelioma after he was exposed to asbestos on movie sets. Fortunately for his legacy, he has two grandchildren. You could say that his grandson, Steve R. McQueen has some pretty big shoes to fill if he ever plans on becoming an actor, especially with a name like that.
Benjamin Keough: Grandson of Elvis Presley
The king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, had one daughter, Lisa Presley. If you were to see Lisa’s son, Benjamin Keough, on the street, you would instantly guess that Benjamin is a descendant of Elvis. Unsurprisingly, Benjamin is also in the music business. When your grandfather is one of the most famous musicians to ever live, it isn’t hard to enter the business.
While he has a lot to live up to if he wants to match the talents of his grandfather, you can be sure that he inherited not only some of his grandfather’s wealth but also his talent. Keogh’s mother, Lisa, apparently gets emotional when she looks at her son because of how much he looks like her father.
Billie Lourd: Grandaughter of Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds had a long and successful career of nearly 70 years. Her first big role which made her a household name was in ‘Three Little Words’. Shortly after, she starred as Kathy Selden in ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ and in the ‘Halloweentown’ series. Not long after her film successes, she released a pop album called ‘Debbie’.
Reynolds paved the way for women in her family to have successful careers. Her granddaughter, Billie Lourd, hasn’t quite reached their level of success, but she is more than deserving of an honorable mention for her role in the TV series ‘Scream Queens’ and ‘American Horror Story’. She even starred in the ‘Star Wars’ sequel trilogy from 2015-2019.
Charlotte Casiraghi: Granddaughter of Grace Kelly
Charlotte Casiraghi is the granddaughter of the former actress and princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Grace started acting at the age of 20, but stopped after she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 when she was 26 years old. She rose to fame at the age of 23, when she was in ‘Mogambo’.

Alia Shawkat: Granddaughter of Paul Burke
With a name as unique as hers, it would seem likely for Alia to become an actress all on her own. But, it turns out that her acting talent may be somewhat genetic. She is the granddaughter of Paul Burke, an actor who was famous in the 1960s for shows like ‘Naked City’ and ‘Twelve O’Clock High’.
30-year-old Alia Shawkat has also made a name for herself in Hollywood. Her most famous role to date was as Maeby Fünke on the hit show ‘Arrested Development’, a role which she held from 2003 to 2018.

Her grandfather, on the other hand, has had a career that has spanned more than 5 decades. Some of Sutherland’s most memorable films include ‘The Dirty Dozen’, ‘M*A*S*H’, ‘Animal House’, ‘A Time to Kill’, ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and ‘The Hunger Games’.

Although Brendan Wayne didn’t have a chance to get to know his grandfather, we are sure that he’s proud of his heritage. Breandan is working to make a name for himself.

Princes William & Harry: Grandsons of Queen Elizabeth II
The similarities between them may not be so transparent nowadays, but Princes William and Harry really bear a resemblance to their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. When the queen was younger, she was energetic and charming. Nowadays, she is the longest-reigning monarch. Her grandchildren still have time before they ascend to the throne.
The next in line is their father, Prince Charles, with Prince William being after him. Poor Prince Harry doesn’t have much of a chance since Prince William’s kids will be before him in the line of succession.
