But then, every so often, you read about a weird family connection you would have never made yourself! We’ve put together a list of the most surprising celebrity family connections in Hollywood!

Kurt Russell & Wyatt Russell

Almost everyone knows the iconic Kurt Russell, who made a name for himself as a child in Disney films before becoming an action star in blockbuster films. Although everyone knows Russell is married to actress Goldie Hawn, few are aware that he has another family connection in Hollywood!

His son, Wyatt Russell, who has yet to reach his father’s star status, has made appearances in “22 Jump Street” and “Overlord”.

Jonah Hill & Beanie Feldstein

There’s something about Beanie Feldstein that reminds us of someone – but who could it be? Watching the budding actress onscreen ignited a nagging notion. It may have been the resemblance in performance and demeanor that she has to her older brother, Jonah Hill.

Jonah changed his last name for Hollywood, while Beanie decided to keep their family name. We wonder if we’ll ever see the funny siblings act side by side!

Tom Hanks & Fred Rogers

The way Tom Hanks found out that he was related to the infamous Fred Rogers (Mr.Rogers) is one for the books. During a red carpet interview for the biopic, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, an interviewer revealed to Hanks that, according to Ancestry.com there two were apart of the same family t.

Much to his surprise, Hanks is a distinct cousin of the beloved man that he portrayed in the film.

Phil Collins & Lily Collins

Music and acting connections are everywhere in Hollywood. Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, best known for these hits, “In the Air Tonight” and “Against All Odds,” is the father of actress Lily Collins.

Lily has made a name for herself in Hollywood, acting in several notable films, including “Mirror, Mirror,” “Okja,” “To the Bone,” and “Vile.”

Dakota Johnson & Melanie Griffith

Following in the footsteps of her mother, Dakota Johnson is taking Hollywood by storm. The daughter of Melanie Griffith and actor Don Johnson, Dakota, actually made her debut starring alongside her mother in the 1999 film, “Crazy in Alabama,” directed by her stepfather, Antonio Banderas.

The young actress is most well known for her portrayal of Anastasia Steele in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” films.

Shirley MacLaine & Warren Beatty

Imagine what family dinners must be like at Shirley MacLaine and Watten Beatty’s homes. Actor Warren Beatty is MacLaine’s younger brother.

In 2012, MacLaine accepted the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award. During her speech, she thanked her “kid” brother saying that he was “the person she’d loved the longest on this planet.”

Julia Roberts & Emma Roberts

Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts is American Horror Story alum Emma Roberts’s aunt! Emma’s father, Eric, is Julia’s brother. Their family reunions are as happy as can be – the Hollywood glam is everywhere. If you need proof, you can just look at Julia’s Instagram.

One of Hollywood’s most glamorous leading ladies once posted a photo from a family game night – where her niece beat her in a Mahjong game!

Jenny McCarthy & Melissa McCarthy

Talent and humor run in the family for these two comedians and actresses. Believe it or not, Jenny and Melissa McCarthy are cousins!

Shutterstock

In 2013, Jenny stood up for Melissa when writer Rex Reed criticized the actress’s weight. In 2015, Jenny posted a childhood photo of the two on her Instagram.

Emily Blunt & Stanley Tucci

Sometimes working on a film together means you’re working with future family. We’ve heard of couples that have met on-set, but what about setting your sister up with your costar? After working on “The Devil Wears Prada,” Stanley Tucci met Emily Blunt’s older sister, Felicity.

Shutterstock

The actor and literary agent fell in love and married, which means that Emily and Stanley are in-laws and that the actress is Tucci’s children’s aunt.

Steven Spielberg & Jessica Capshaw

Most known for her role as Arizona Robbins on “Grey’s Anatomy” – many don’t know that Jessica Capshaw is the stepdaughter of the remarkable director, Steven Spielberg.

Shutterstock

Spielberg married Jessica’s mother, Kate Capshaw, in 1991, and the two have been married ever since. Jessica even had a small role in one of Spielberg’s films, “Minority Report.”

Ellen DeGeneres & Kate Middleton

Yes, you read that right – the talk show host and future Queen of England are distant cousins! The only thing that interests Ellen about her long-lost relatives is…Prince George – and we don’t blame her. When she discovered the relation, she tried to leverage it towards meeting Prince George.

Shutterstock

“I have a clothing line – I can give him clothes; I can make a special robe for him,” she told a British tabloid. “I don’t know why they don’t want to get in good with me because I’m like a gravy train for that kid.”

Jami Belushi & Jim Belushi

The 20-year-old daughter of According to Jim star, Jim Belushi, seems to have found herself also in showbiz! Jami or Jamison Bess Belushi took to acting, as well as singing and songwriting. On the stage from a young age (six years old in fact). Belushi is currently recording in the studio – we’ll be very curious to see what she comes up with!

Getty Images Photo by Jesse Grant/WireImage

In a fun twist though – and while she is quite talented with music, she mentioned to media outlets that she wants to open a candy store!

Ireland Baldwin & Kim Basinger

Kim Basinger, a singer, actress, and former model, earned an outstanding reputation for the work she has done, from being a supporting actress to playing a Bond Girl. Kim’s daughter with Alec Baldwin, Ireland Baldwin, also has a portfolio quite similar to her mother’s.

Getty Images/Alamy Stock Photos

Ireland has put the gorgeous looks she inherited to good use. She now works as an actress and a model, but there is no doubt that it’ll take some time before she gains a repertoire that is comparable to those of her famous parents.

Stella McCartney & Linda McCartney

With her eponymous fashion line, Stella McCartney is undoubtedly more than just the daughter of former Beatles member Paul McCartney. She has made a name for herself in her own right, with the likes of Anna Wintour seated front row at her shows in London.

Almay Stock Photos/ Getty Images

But of course, we’re sure the fact she’s linked to the famous Beatle has helped in some way!  Although her dad may be one of the world’s biggest musical legends, many think that Stella resembles her late mother, Linda. Like her mother, she also stands for animal rights, using faux leather and faux fur instead of the real thing.

Jason Ritter & John Ritter

Can you find the differences? Yes, these photos are of two different people. The late John Ritter and his son Jason to be exact. Both of whom happen to be some of  Hollywood’s most talented actors. Although they are both well-known in their line of work, it still comes as a surprise to us that these two are related! Most remember John Ritter from “8 Simple Rules” and “Three’s Company.”

Getty Images Alamy Stock Photos

Jason, on the other hand, is more familiar to the younger generation from shows like “The Event” and “Joan of Arcadia.” It’s been more than a decade since the late John Ritter passed away, but we’re confident that he’d be very proud of his son’s accomplishments.

Robin Thicke & Alan Thicke

As soon as Robin Thick hit the Hollywood scene, people were wondering who he reminded them of, and as soon as you catch the last name, it’s undeniable, as he resembles his father, Alan Thick. Alan was a famous actor, comedian, game show host, and his son, Robin, is a talented singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Alamy Stock Photos

If Robin wants to know how he’ll look as he ages, he has to look no further than his father. Not bad if we must say.

Tracee Ellis Ross & Diana Ross

Diana Ross is an absolute legend. Her hits were at the top of the charts and inspiring lots of booty-shaking at Studio 54! And they still are! (Well, maybe not at Studio 54, but they get a wiggle in our office!) Anyway, the gorgeous diva has an equally charming and talented daughter – Tracee Ellis Ross.

Getty Images Photo by D Dipasupil/FilmMagic

Making her mark in showbiz, Tracee is not only a wonderful actress and personality but quite the fashionista. These days she works on comedy, acting, hosting, and directing, and has been the recipient of several awards!

Joely Richardson & Vanessa Redgrave

Vanessa Redgrave CBE is an English actress of high regard, gracing the stage, screen, and television with her beauty and charm. In 2010 she received the BAFTA Fellowship and is a living legend. Her career began in the 60s as a darling of the theatre. She then went on to pursue film, with roles in “Mission Impossible,” “Isadora,” “Julia,” “Camelot,” and, more recently, “Letters to Juliet.”

Alamy Stock Photos

It was with her first husband, Tony Richardson, that she had Natasha and Joely Richardson. Just placing Vanessa and Joely side by side, you can definitely see the similarities! Joely, like her mother, is in the acting game, with roles on “Nip/Tuck” and “The Tudors.”

Jennifer Aniston & John Aniston

The classic 90s sitcom “Friends,” shot a few unknowns to international stardom, and one of them is the gorgeous Jennifer Aniston. Portraying Rachel Green in “Friends,” she’s also known for her high-profile marriage to Brad Pitt. Didn’t last but, now that they’re both single again, who knows! Kidding… (Not kidding). But aside from that, she’s also the daughter of John Aniston.

Alamy Stock Photos

Now some of you may not be old enough to know what “Days of Our Lives” is, but for those of you who are, well yes, he does play Victor Kiriakis! Small world, eh? And it seems that there’s something in the Greek genes because, well, they just seem to get better with age!

Cara Delevingne & Charles Delevingne

The stunning English supermodel Cara Delevingne was hand-plucked from the elite (yeah, her family is kind of a big deal) and signed to several renowned brands from a young age. With her thick eyebrows and gorgeous eyes, she emerged as one of the most promising models when she was a teen.

Alamy Stock Photos

Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see her face plastered across billboards. Not to mention her outstanding acting ability! Her father is Charles Delevingne, a notable real estate developer in the UK. He’s got money, looks, and power. When he was young, he was referred to as “debs delight” – for the debutantes we imagine. That apple sure didn’t fall far from the tree!

Riley Keough & Lisa Marie Presley

Lisa Marie, daughter of Priscilla and the one and only Elvis, followed in her parents’ footsteps, pursuing a career in music. She’s also a model, producer, and the list will surely go on as she progresses in her career in entertainment.

Alamy Stock Photos

Lisa Marie’s daughter, Riley Keough, is an actress, model, and producer. She is known primarily for her appearances in independent films. Who would have ever thought that the king of rock n roll’s daughter would grow up to be an independent film star?

Victorie Franklin & Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin, also known as the Queen of soul, with over 75 million records sold worldwide and 18 Grammy awards stashed away, she’s certainly earned that title and more. Franklin will forever be remembered.

Alamy Stock Photos

Her granddaughter, Victorie, who is next up on our list, seems to have inherited some of her grandmother’s fantastic talent and is on the right path to stardom. When Aretha passed the whole world mourned, but there is a bright light of hope shining from Victorie, a budding musician – maybe she’ll honor her grandmother’s legacy.

Mason Gooding & Cuba Gooding Jr.

Now you might have seen Mason Gooding in “Booksmart” recently – playing the handsome, Nick. It seems that acting was natural for Gooding, not surprising as his father is none other than “Jerry Maguire” star Cuba Gooding Jr. The established actor has won an Academy Award and has three children with Sara Kapfer.

Alamy Stock Photos

Unlike other celeb children, Gooding went to college first, before joining the entertainment industry, NYU nonetheless. We wish him all the best and hope to see him make more appearances on our screens!

Princess Eugenie & Sarah Ferguson

Ah, imagine waking up, stretching out, and opening your eyes to a massive four-poster bed. Well, for Princess Eugenie, daughter of Sarah Ferguson, that fantasy is a reality! Although the resemblance is uncanny, we often forget that Eugenie is Sarah’s daughter.

Alamy Stock Photos

While her mother Sarah Ferguson separated from former husband when Eugenie was just six, the mother and daughter have always had a powerful bond and relationship. The Duchess of York and Prince Andrew have raised one fortunate daughter.

Puma Sabti Curry & Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu certainly has something: a phenomenal voice. The neo-soul queen’s debut album Baduizm was so popular that it received a triple-platinum certification. Pretty amazing stuff. She’s got a few kids to spend the royalties on Mars, Puma, and Seven. It seems that the girls, Puma and Mars, have received some of their mom’s god-given talent!

Alamy Stock Photos

Puma, who’s recently become a teenager, sang for her mom’s birthday, and the video evidence was astounding. Erykah Badu shared the beautiful moment on her Instagram and was absolutely thrilled that her angel would be so sweet as to sing for her.

Georgia May Jagger & Jerry Hall

With that unmistakable gap tooth, Georgia May Jagger is undoubtedly the daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. But she didn’t get all her looks from daddy-o. No, no, her mom is none other than supermodel Jerry Hall. With her crazy long legs and flowing blond hair, Jerry Hall was put on a pedestal. And rightfully so!

Alamy Stock Photos

To this day, she’s still smokin’ hot! No wonder her daughter has managed to get snapped working for the big designer brands: Miu Miu and Versace come to mind when we think of Jagger. As well as living up that model life, she’s also tried her hand at fashion design. Regardless, whatever she decided to pursue, we know she’ll breeze through!

Jaden Smith & Will Smith

Jaden Smith is undoubtedly someone who could easily rely on his parent’s fortune. Between his famous parents, Will Smith (if you couldn’t tell) and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jaden could just go straight into retirement, and his sister, Willow, can join him.

Alamy Stock Photos

But no, Jaden is a hard worker, as a businessman and a philanthropist he’s already making a name of his own, and a nice fortune as well. Good job!

Gigi Hadid & Yolanda Hadid

With a mother like Yolanda Hadid, we’re not surprised that Gigi Hadid has become one of the most successful and established supermodels in recent years. They say Gigi shares a striking resemblance with her mother when she was younger. So we know that Gig will age like fine wine.

Alamy Stock Photos/Getty Images

Gigi has walked for nearly every leading luxury brand, and with an estimated net worth is $13 million, and she is one of the world’s highest-paid models in the fashion industry.

Tommy Lee & Brandon Lee

The drummer for iconic rock band Motley Crue, Tommy Lee, has a mini-me named Brandon Lee! He had Brandon with Baywatch star, Pamela Anderson. The pair, in fact scandalously married in 1995, just DAYS after the meeting. Yep.

Alamy Stock Photos

With two equally wild and famous parents, it would make sense for Brandon to want to keep out of the limelight. But in recent years, he has been making a name for himself, making his way onto the reality show, “The Hills.”

Myles Murphy & Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy is another legend. Comedic genius, truly. For years he has managed to make even the toughest audience laugh heartily, and boy, do we love him for it. Roles like “Dr. Doolittle,” The “Nutty Professor,” oh, and of course, the hilarious “Coming to America,” as well as “Shrek,” has solidified his place in Hollywood and in movie history.

Alamy Stock Photos

Despite his humor and a big grin, it seems that Eddie Murphy has had some trouble in holding down a marriage. He’s had relationships, but sadly the majority of those have ended in divorce. He has five kids with Nicole Mitchell, and one of those is his son Myles Murphy. Myles took a different path from this father, and started a career in football!

Dan Levy & Eugene Levy

If there’s one stereotypical “dad” image that springs to mind, it’s automatically Eugene Levy, who plays Noah Levenstein in the cult-classic “American Pie” series. That scene with the apple pie. Heck, that scene with the hot exchange student in Jim’s bedroom. And oh lord, those awkward pauses when Levenstein tries to explain some sort of sex education to his son. Just classic.

Alamy Stock Photos

The Canadian actor has had a prolific career, and is well known for his comedy scripts – so much so that he’s received a star on Canada’s own Walk of Fame! His son Dan seemed to have a penchant for comedy also, and currently, stars alongside his father on the Netflix show “Schitt’s Creek.” Not bad for a father-son duo!

John David Washington & Denzel Washington

Denzel’s son initially tried out to become a member of the NFL, as part of the St. Louis Rams, however, was unsuccessful. He didn’t initially plan to follow in his famous father’s footsteps; however, circumstances demanded that he give an alternate career path a shot. But with a smile like his father’s, it’s hardly a surprise that he got the role of Ricky Jerret on “Ballers” alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Getty Images Photo by Emma McIntyre

Washington Sr. is sure to support his son regardless, and while he hasn’t quite reached the tour de force performances of his father, he’s still got a lot ahead of him!

Louisa Gummer & Meryl Streep

The baby of the Streep girls, is Louisa Gummer, Meryl Streep’s youngest daughter. Just as gorgeous as her sisters and, of course, her mother, she decided to enter the fashion industry. With the connections to all the designers (who wouldn’t want Meryl Streep at their fashion show?), she’s worked for some of the biggest names and has made her mark in the fashion world.

Getty Images Photo by Ron Galella, Ltd./Ron Galella Collection

When we say worked for, we mean in the sense that she put her good looks to use, with the now 28-year-old signed with IMG Models in New York, shooting campaigns for Dior as well as appearing in high-profile magazine publications “Vanity Fair” and “Glamour.”

Grace Gummer & Meryl Streep

Double or nothing, Meryl Streep edition. The second daughter of Don Gummer and Meryl Streep is the gorgeous Grace Gummer. With a resemblance that makes you immediately realize that they’re mother and daughter, Grace too seems to have taken to acting.

Getty Images Photo by Leon Bennett/FilmMagic

Gaining her degree from her mother’s alma mater, Vassar College, Grace went to the stage, and has even performed on Broadway! It seems that the apple indeed doesn’t fall too far from the tree!

Benedict Cumberbatch & Wanda Ventham

Surprisingly, this leading lady is the mother of a son who is arguably even more famous than she is! The English actress Wanda Ventham is best known for her role as Colonel Virginia Lake in the 1970s sci-fi series: “UFO.” In her hey-day, she was (and hey, still is) a mega-babe!

Getty Images Photo by Dave J Hogan

In 2014, People magazine even gave her a shout-out, featuring her in its “Most Beautiful People in the World” edition. And no wonder her son Benedict Cumberbatch is a famous actor – we know exactly where he got those gorgeous eyes from! Even better news for him is that he is not only handsome but extremely talented. We absolutely adored him as Doctor Strange in the “Avengers” franchise, as well as none other than the magnetic, charming “Sherlock Holmes.”

Scott Eastwood & Clint Eastwood

“Dirty Harry” has to be one of the most iconic films ever made – particularly when it comes to a suave, badass detective. The famed actor and director is just one of those Hollywood legends, one who commands silence when entering a room.

Getty Images Photo by Ron Galella/Ron Galella Collection

Not because he wants it, but because it’s the only reaction us mere mortals can fathom. Yep, he’s got his son, Scott, who does bear a striking resemblance and has become an actor in Hollywood in his own right.

Rashida Jones & Quincy Jones

Gosh, we love Rashida Jones. She’s gorgeous and funny, as well as a wonderful actress. With her husky voice and beautiful eyes, it’s no wonder Hollywood embraced her. Her father is none other than the iconic record producer Quincy Jones. Yes, the legend himself is the father to Rashida! The myth, the man, is behind tracks like “Just Once” and “Soul Bossa Nova.” (Austin Powers fans, we got u).

Getty images Photo by Nicholas Hunt

Rashida got her start on “I Love You, Man,” and seems to have a penchant for comedy, also appearing on shows like “The Office.” She’s made quite a name for herself and has graced many red carpets – with her talent, drive, and maybe a little help from her father, she’s managed to hit the big time.

Eva Amurri Martino – Susan Sarandon

American actress Susan Sarandon has had an incredible career in Hollywood, known for her charm and beauty. Best remembered for her iconic roles in “Thelma & Louise” and” The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” these days she is still making headlines, being arrested earlier this year for participating in political protests. What a woman!

Getty Images Photo by Ron Galella, Ltd./Ron Galella Collection

Susan’s daughter, Eva, had a role in the 2002 flick, “The Banger Sisters,” in which her mother starred, obviously portraying the daughter of her mother’s character. She has since guest-starred in many television shows and movies, establishing herself in Hollywood.

Maya Hawke & Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman turned into an absolute celebrity after her performances in “Pulp Fiction” and the “Kill Bill” series. However, before she took her first steps towards a career in acting, she was already a successful model, having taken the catwalk by storm. As for her daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke, she looks very much like her mom, and we dare say that she’s even more beautiful!

Getty Images Photo by Evan Agostini/Liaison

She also aspires to become a model like her mom, but Maya has already dabbled in acting as well. You might remember her face from the recent series of “Stranger Things,” as well as having landed a part on “Little Women”, a BBC mini-series. With looks like hers, Maya will soon be so famous that a remarkable portfolio is undoubtedly going to be in her future.

Liza Minelli & Judy Garland

Judy Garland is one of those stars of old who will never be forgotten. “The Wizard of Oz” is arguably one of her most famous films, and her acting and singing talents were surely passed on to her daughter Liza Minelli.

Getty Images Photo by Bettmann

Liza Minelli started out as a nightclub singer, favoring cabaret and jazz styles, which were the perfect segue into the role which would garner her an Academy Award for Best Actress. Remember the 1972 hit, “Cabaret”?! With her rich and soulful voice, Minelli captivated audiences, and today is a legend in her own right.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen & Elizabeth Olsen

Everyone who’s anyone knows of the famous twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, also known as the Olsen Twins, who mostly made their name by starring together in various TV shows and films. They were most popular in their youth, but eventually retired as actresses and now focus on fashion design. They are members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

 

Many people don’t know that Elizabeth Olsen is their sister. She too is a popular actress and gained worldwide recognition for her role as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch in the iconic Marvel films, including “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

Matt Dillon & Kevin Dillon

Matt and Kevin Dillon are both successful actors in Hollywood, and we’re always surprised when we remember they are brothers. The two have appeared in various manly films and shows. Kevin is mostly known for his roles as Bunny in the war film “Platoon,” John Densmore in the musical biopic “The Doors,” and, of course, Johnny “Drama” Chase on the HBO comedy series “Entourage.” Matt has first appeared in the film “Over the Edge” in 1979, and he also went on to become a director with 2002’s “City of Ghosts.”

Getty Images Photo by Evan Agostini

Here we can see the handsome brothers during a night out together. There are some apparent resemblances between the two brothers, as both of them have a real sense of manliness.

Ben Affleck & Casey Affleck

Ben Affleck has been acting and directing films for many decades now, and has starred in Hollywood from a very young age. The actor appeared in some of the most popular movies of all time, and gained a reputation as a solid performer, both for critics and in terms of box-office revenue. He was recently tasked with the tough job of portraying the legendary “Batman,” in a portrayal now known as Batfleck, and managed to do an incredible job, despite heavy skepticism.

Getty Images Photo by Todd Williamson

Casey is also an actor, although he is far less known than his brother, Ben. The two have practically the same half-smile, but other than that, they aren’t as similar looking as some of the other siblings on this list.

Ariana Grande & Frankie Grande

With over 165 million Instagram followers and almost 15 billion total YouTube views, Ariana Grande is truly a powerhouse in the entertainment industry. She’s a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress, and is often compared to Mariah Carey in her musical style. She received various awards, including one Grammy Award, one Brit Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and several Guinness World Records. All of her albums have reached platinum or better by the RIAA.

Getty Images Photo by Bruce Glika

Ariana’s brother, Frankie Grande, is a famous dancer, actor, singer, producer, TV host, and YouTube influencer. He appeared as Franz in the musical “Rock of Ages” and was the judge on the 2015 season of “America’s Best Dance Crew.”

Miley Cyrus & Noah Cyrus

Miley Cyrus started her entertainment career as one of Disney’s famous child stars on “Hannah Montana,” before turning rogue and completely dismissing the good-girl image in favor of the “I don’t care about any of you” facade. Miley decided to go all-out in her acting and singing career, sometimes getting a little risque.

 

Miley and Noah Cyrus are the daughters of famous country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and actress Tish Cyrus. Noah is also an entertainer, mostly performing as an actress with moderate success. She claims to face various mental health challenges, including depression and anxiety, which probably aren’t getting any better with the type of attention her sister is fond of getting.

Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez

Charlie Sheen is quite a controversial character in Hollywood. On the one hand, the guy is a charismatic and manly actor. He played in lots of successful films and TV shows, from the severe and dramatic “Platoon,” which was about Vietnam soldiers, and the financial drama “Wall-Street,” up to “Two and a Half Men,” one of the most popular sitcoms in TV history. On the other hand, he’s dealing with quite a few issues. Charlie is the son of popular actor Martin Sheen, who dominated Hollywood in the ‘70s and still acts to this day.

Getty Images Photo by Brian To

Because they do not go by the same last name, it is easy to forget that Charlie has a famous brother. Emilio Estevez, who’s also a successful actor, although not quite as popular and well-known as his younger brother. But maybe that’s a good thing since no allegations are surrounding his good name

Kate Mara & Rooney Mara

You’ll probably recognize Kate Mara as Zoe Barnes from the hit Netflix political drama, “House of Cards,” starring Robin Wright. She has been an actress since 1999 and appeared in many films, although none of them have caught on to any major degree. Her sister, Rooney Mara, is also a Hollywood actress and has appeared in various films, including the 2010 remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “The Social Network.”

Getty Images Photo by Kevin Winter

The sisters are so different in both looks and acting genres – it is sometimes surprising to think that they grew up together. Rooney has led a much more successful acting career altogether, although both of them are quite well-off regardless.

Oliver Hudson & Kate Hudson

Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson are both successful American actors who began working in the film industry in the ‘90s. Kate is most famous for her roles in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”, “Raising Helen,” “The Skeleton Key,” and “You, Me, and Dupree.”

Getty Images Photo by Kevin Winter

Her less famous brother, Oliver, is most known for his role as Adam Rhodes in the CBS comedy series “Rules of Engagement.” We wonder what it’s like to live as siblings who both share the lives of the rich and famous.

John Cusack & Joan Cusack

John Cusack is one of the more politically active actors on our list, often trying to promote popular Bernie Sanders. The actor, who was prominent in the 80s and 90s, has not been very active since and seems to spend most of his time promoting different agendas on Twitter.

Getty Images Photo by Jason LaVeris

His sister, Joan Cusack, is also a talented actress and a comedian herself. Joan appeared on “Saturday Night Live” during the mid-’80s. In 2003, both she and her brother both signed the “Not in My Name” resolution, which opposed the invasion of Iraq.

Mark Wahlberg & Donnie Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is quite the guy, he claims to wake up at 3 am every morning, turned into a bodybuilder sized maniac, and was even a rapper back in the day. Mark has quickly transitioned into films in 1991 after a disastrous early music career and has since appeared in some of the coolest films of all time. His most beloved film to date, “Ted,” was an absolutely hilarious one to watch. He was also the world’s best-paid actor in 2017.

Getty Images Photo by Kevin Winter

Mark’s brother, Donnie Wahlberg, is a singer and record producer. He was also an actor for a while and played in various films such as the “Saw” franchise, M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense,” and more. They clearly have a very strong resemblance to many of their facial features, and both are definitely quite handsome.

Lindsay Lohan & Ali Lohan

Everyone remembers Lindsay Lohan as the wonderful child actor who appeared in many films such as “Mean Girls,” “The Parent Trap,” and “Freaky Friday.” She was subjected to extreme amounts of tabloid and media fixture during the mid-to-late 2000s, which, of course, had quite a negative impact on the actress. She was initially signed to Ford Models as a child but became a worldwide hit due to a string of successful shows and films.

Getty Images Photo by David M. Benett

Her sister, Aliana Lohan, is an up and coming model, singer, and actress.

Zooey Deschanel & Emily Deschanel

No matter which films the actress and model has appeared in, everyone remembered Zooey Deschanel mostly for her eyes, which have been rumored to cause men everywhere to freeze and turn to stone. She was most prominent over the last decade but has since remained mostly unnoticed in the film industry. You can catch Zooey on TV in the wacky comedy Show “New Girl” or on film in the movie “500 Days of Summer”.

Getty Images Photo by Charley Gallay

Her sister, Emily, who seems to have a very different look than her sister, although the two share their most important feature — their beautiful crystal blue eyes. Emily is also an actress and a film producer. She is mostly known for her role on the show “Bones” between 2005 – 2017.

 Gigi, Bella & Anwar Hadid

Gigi and Bella Hadid are a highly successful duo of sibling models. Gigi has over 50 million fans on Instagram, and her sister, Bella, has more than 25 million followers. They are the daughters of real estate developer Mohamed Hadid and former model Yolanda Hadid.

 

Their brother, Anwar Hadid, is also a fashion model, although he’s currently much less popular and successful than his slightly older sisters. In the picture above, we can see the beautiful threesome of sibling models. We sure would like some of those genes!

Jessica Simpson & Ashlee Simpson

Both Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson are wonderfully successful singers and actresses. The two have sold many millions of copies between them and have attained an almost worldwide level of recognition and fame. The two were born just four years apart in Abilene, Texas, and were raised in Dallas. They both have somewhat controversial public images, mostly due to their right-wing political beliefs and tendency to get into various dramas.

Getty Images Photo by Frazer Harrison

It’s easy to notice that they are related. However, we preferred Ashlee in her gothic black haired look from about a century ago.

Rashida Jones & Kidada Jones

You may know Rashida for starring as Ann Perkins on the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation.” While Kidada has had her fair of success in The Walt Disney Company, where she created a fashion line named Kidada for Disney Couture, both of them are the daughters of composer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton.

Getty Images Photo by Chris Weeks

Many don’t know this, but Kidada Jones was married to rapper Tupac Shakur in 1996 the same year he was brutally shot to death. Although you don’t see them together often, it’s easy to see just how similar the two are when they stand next to each other.

Christian Campbell & Neve Campbell

Christian is best known for his roles in the films “Trick,” “Big Love,” and “Reefer Madness.” Neve is best known for her role as Julia Salinger in the drama series “Party of Five” and as Sidney Prescott in the horror film franchise “Scream.” The two lived with their father, an acting teacher, who went on to receive custody of them after their mother and father got divorced.

Although they are considered Canadian actors, these siblings have become increasingly popular in Hollywood!

Demi Lovato & Madison De La Garza

Demi Lovato has built up quite a name for herself as a multi-talented singer, songwriter, actress, and entertainer. She rose to prominence by playing as Mitchie Torres on Disney’s famous film “Camp Rock” and its sequel “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam”. She has earned numerous awards and nominations for her songs over the years and is an active supporter of LGBT rights.

 

Her sister, Madison De La Garza, is also an actress, making her breakthrough on “Desperate Housewives” and has appeared in a few TV shows and films since 2008. The sisters are very similar in many ways, but each is unique in her way. They both have a chin dimple and that same dark flowing hair.

Lily Allen & Alfie Allen

The Allen siblings are son and daughter of actor Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen. Lily is an exceptionally successful singer and songwriter, and sold over 2.5 million copies when she debuted with her first album, “Alright, Still.”

She is exceptionally well received by critics and continues to evolve her musical style over the years. Somehow, it still surprises us that her brother Alfie is famous as well. He is mostly known for playing Theon Greyjoy in the HBO series “Game of Thrones” and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2019.

James Franco & Dave Franco

James and Dave Franco have been in Hollywood for quite a long time now. They’re the perfect example of a goofy and hilarious sibling duo that puts a smile on everyone’s faces. The two have recently acted together in the entertaining parody film “The Disaster Artist,” which chronicles the real-life story of how the film “The Room,” which is considered the worst movie of all time, was made.

As we mentioned, Dave works as an actor as well, albeit he has not received the same amount of fame as his brother…yet.

Ralph Fiennes & Joseph Fiennes

Ralph Fiennes is one of England’s most recognizable actors and appeared in various successful films, including “Harry Potter,” where he played as the menacing and noseless Voldemort. He seems to have a knack for playing the villain since he was also the voice of Ramses in the “Prince of Egypt” film. Ralph also became a director early this decade when he adapted Shakespeare’s tragedy “Coriolanus” after playing prince Hamlet in 1995 and winning a Tony Award for it.

His brother Joseph Fiennes is also a film and stage actor, although he’s certainly not as famous as his brother. Both English actors appear to be big Shakespear fans, as Joseph’s most iconic film to this day has been the 1998 classic, “Shakespeare in Love,” where he played as William Shakespeare himself.
