Celebs Who Are Actually Related



Hollywood is a bustling place with many faces that come and go, but some may seem oddly familiar, and that’s because they literally are. Many stars in the spotlight have personal connections who are just as famous as themselves, casual fans just don’t realize it.
Whether they be parent and child, brother and sister, uncles, cousins or even in-laws, there’s a ton of nepotism in Hollywood, for better or worse. However, the apple doesn’t always necessarily fall far from the tree. Have a look at these familially related celebrities for yourself.

Julia Roberts and Emma Roberts

With those two interchangeable smiles, it should come as little surprise that these two are, in fact, aunt and niece.

Melissa Mccarthy and Jenny Mccarthy

This just goes to show that physical appearance varies greatly from relation to relation! Despite the different eye color and varying physiques, these two are cousins.

Ryan Gosling and Justin Bieber

It may seem pretty unfathomable that one of the classiest celebs and one of the least classiest celebs could actually be related, but it’s true. Cousins to the end. Well, distant cousins, which matters far more than usual when you’re talking about Bieber.

Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn

With those eyes, that hair, and that smile, Kate could easily play a younger Goldie in one of her movies! Both mother and daughter share all the same facial characteristics.

Lily Collins and Phil Collins

The Mortal Instruments actress is indeed daughter of the famous lead singer of Genesis.

Joan Cusack and John Cusack

Even if you couldn’t venture a guess due to their names being basically the exact same, you should be able to tell they’re siblings due to their looks alone.

Madonna and Celine Dion

Gee, you absolutely cannot tell these two are related! It would appear that singing and showmanship really runs in the family, as these two pop singer icons are distant cousins.

Kate Middleton and Guy Ritchie

The director of Snatch, Sherlock Holmes, and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is, in fact, sixth cousins with Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.

Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman

While both of these cousins have made it pretty big in acting, only Nic Cage has the honor of claiming he’s an internet meme sensation. Sorry, Jason.

Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson

The Working Girl star gave birth to her daughter in 1989 and she grew up to be a star herself. We’re not quite sure what Melanie thinks of her daughter baring all in Fifty Shades of Grey, but she was never exactly the epitome of modesty herself.

Ron Howard and Bryce Dallas Howard

The famed director and actress are father and daughter, in case the red hair didn’t give it away.

Jessica Capshaw and Steven Spielberg

After the legendary director married Kate Capshaw after casting her in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, he inherited her daughter from a previous marriage. His stepdaughter Jessica was so inspired by her filmmaker stepdad that she decided to become an actress.

Quincy Jones and Rashida Jones

Any Parks and Recreation fan is quite familiar with Rashida’s character of Ann Perkins, but her father is actually “Q”, the famous jazz arranger and musician.

Snoop Dogg and Brandy

It’s no coincidence that these two are both about as smooth as can be. It must be a family trait, because these are actually first cousins.

Tom Cruise and William Mapother

If you’ve ever watched Lost and thought “Hey, that guy looks kinda like Tom Cruise” then you’re not wrong. Ok, so maybe they’re not exactly lookalikes, but they are still first cousins.

Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning

For years Dakota was Hollywood’s favorite little girl in such movies as War of the Worlds and I Am Sam. Then her little sister Elle came on the scene and made her own stamp in such movies as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Maleficent. There surely must be some sibling rivalry there!

Lily Allen and Alfie Allen

There probably isn’t much sibling rivalry going on here, as this brother and sister have two pretty different careers. Lily Allen is an accomplished singer and songwriter, while Alfie has been playing Theon Greyjoy for seven seasons of Game of Thrones.

Zoë Kravitz and Lenny Kravitz

Like father like daughter, these two singers and movie actors had pretty extensive careers in both fields.

Kate Mara and Rooney Mara

They may not share many facial similarities, but upon further inspection you really can tell these two are sisters (particularly in their mouths).

Zoey Deutch and Lea Thompson

You probably didn’t know that the Back to the Future actress was mother to Zoey Deutch! While she may not have acted in anything comparable in terms of popularity like her mother, Zoey will probably be just as famous someday if she keeps up her career.

Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks

While it may not be completely obvious at first, the more you look at Colin the more he begins to morph into his very famous dad.

Stellan Skarsgard and Alexander Skarsgard

With a last name like that, there’s no mistaking these two as anything but related. In fact, they’re father and son.

Ray J and Brandy

Brandy has all kinds of famous relatives, and that includes her famous R&B singer brother Ray J. The two have even recorded some songs together.

Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine

The late and great Shirley MacLaine was older sister to Bonnie and Clyde actor Warren Beatty.

Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez

They may not share the same name, but that doesn’t change the fact that the two are brothers. In fact, Emilio probably shares just as many facial similarities with their dad than even Charlie does.
