These Celebrities Look Like Their Parents
Almost every adult realizes that their parents are merely humans with lives, feelings, and goals of their own. It may or may not seem like an earth-shattering revelation, but it must be extremely weird for celebrities with famous parents.
Imagine seeing your mother or father on a magazine cover or a billboard as you drive by. Every time your family went to supper, strangers would come up and beg for an autograph from your dad. What would you do? The first thing that celebrity kids learn about themselves is that their parents are famous or that most people's parents aren't.
When Hilary Duff appeared on Good Morning America to talk about raising her son, Luca, she referred to this occurrence. "He's seen me on the cover of a magazine previously at the grocery store," she explained. I'm guessing he believes that tomorrow is another mommy's turn."
Growing up as a celebrity child with famous parents has its advantages, but it doesn't mean there aren't drawbacks. Every step you make is scrutinized by the paparazzi who have been following you since you were born, my friends who care more about your parents than you do, and by your self-imposed standards. However, we must believe that attending movie premieres and visiting backstage at concerts make an effort worthwhile, among other lifestyle perks.
1. Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
Seeing her 21-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe, is like traveling back in time for Reese Witherspoon, who started her career so early. Selfies show just how remarkable a likeness there is. In addition to having her mother's eyes, smile, and pretty much everything else, Phillippe's father, Ryan Phillippe, is Witherspoon's ex.
2. Robin Wright and Dylan Penn
Dylan Penn, the daughter of Robin Wright and Sean Penn, was born during their 20-year partnership and has now become a successful model and actress in her own right, following in her parents' footsteps. She also has an uncanny resemblance to Wright, from her blonde hair to her nose shape.
3. David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham
Brooklyn Beckham, 21, is a near-perfect younger replica of dad David Beckham, as much as we can see mom Victoria Beckham in him. Every time Brooklyn posts a photo of himself with his father on Instagram, the comments section is inundated with remarks about how amazing they look so similar.
4. Chrissy Teigen and Luna Stephens
The four-year-old daughter of Chrissy Teigen, Luna Stephens, takes the concept of a "mini-me" to a whole new level (especially when they wear matching outfits). A modeling career may be in her future, especially as Luna grows older and begins to resemble Teigen more.
5. John Legend and Miles Stephens
As long as we're discussing the Legend family, let's not forget that while their daughter is a carbon duplicate of Chrissy Teigen, their boy somehow grew out looking just like John Legend! Miles Stephens has all the characteristics of a Legend.
6. Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin
Apple Martin, the 16-year-old daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, is fast becoming a carbon copy of her famous mother. On Instagram in the summer of 2020, Paltrow posted a picture of herself with her daughter, which prompted speculation.
7. Ice Cube and ' O'Shea Jackson Jr.
As a child, O'Shea Jackson Jr. (also known as Ice Cube) was given the nickname "Ice Cube." He's also a rapper and actor. Thus he has some resemblance to his father. Ice Cube's kid played the role of a young Ice Cube in the film Straight Outta Compton because they look so identical.
8. Uma Thurman and Maya Hawke
Stranger Things viewers were quick to note Maya Hawke's breakout performance. Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke are her parents. Therefore you can't help but notice the likeness between her and her mother. What are you thinking with those bright blue eyes and that contagious grin? This is very definitely a twinning situation.
9. Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
Suri Cruise's parents, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise brought her into the world more than a decade ago, and since then, they've only seen her a handful of times. But when we've seen Suri out and about with her mother or on Instagram, it's impossible to deny that she still looks like Holmes.
10. Scott Disick and Mason Disick
Scott Disick's genes may be a suitable opponent to the Kardashian genes. Mason Disick, the 10-year-old son of former Kourtney Kardashian, has a striking resemblance to his father. On Keeping Up With the Kardashians (Kim's reality show), Mason appears to share his father's sense of humor.
11. Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of Diana Ross and music producer Robert Ellis Silberstein, is already a star in her own right, but she hails from a family of legends. Is it any surprise that Tracee's looks are similar to Diana, Princess of Wales?
12. Colin Hanks and Tom Hanks
Colin Hanks has created a reputation for himself as an actor and filmmaker, thanks partly to the fact that he inherited his father's ability and his leading man's looks.
13. Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
Do you know who to contact if Goldie Hawn wants to portray an older Goldie Hawn in a movie? Kate Hudson's two-year-old daughter, Rani Rose, may one day follow in her mother's footsteps and become a big-screen star like her mother.
14. Dan Levy and Eugene Levy
Fans of Dan Levy and Eugene Levy's sitcom Schitt's Creek have become accustomed to seeing double whenever the actors appear in the same scene. We can already see that Dan will appear more and more like Eugene as he ages, thanks to the heavy brows, smile, and even some of their stances. Considering everything they've done together (including a sweep of the comedy categories at this year's Emmys!), who knows what the future holds for this father-and-son duo.
15. Michael Consuelos and Mark Consuelos
Now 23, Michael Consuelos, Mark's son, has such a striking likeness to his father on Riverdale that in the third season of the show, he portrayed an adolescent version of Mark's character, Hiram Lodge. And considering Kelly Ripa is Michael's mother, it should come as no surprise that he's a genetic lottery winner.
16. Carrie Fisher and Billie Lourd
Life without Carrie Fisher will never seem complete, but her 28-year-old daughter Billie Lourd is a consolation prize. Lourd, like Fisher, bears a striking resemblance to her mother, Debbie Reynolds. In addition to portraying a new character in the most recent Star Wars trilogy, Lourd also appeared in a sequence as a stand-in for the late Fisher.
17. Kim Kardashian and North West
Remember how we talked about the great Kardashian pedigree? Kim Kardashian and her seven-year-old daughter North West are a perfect example of this. Like her mother, West enjoys being in front of the camera and wearing fashionable clothing.
18. Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler
Until she was 11, she didn't find out that her father was Aerosmith's frontman Steven Tyler; Liv Tyler and her father are linked. The two actors' features, including their black hair and grins, are very similar.
19. DJ Khaled and Asahd Khaled
Asahd Khaled, the son of DJ Khaled, is four years old and already enjoying a lifestyle that most could only dream of. And he even resembles his famous father as a child. As a result of their appearance on DJ Khaled's Father of Asahd album cover, we may expect to see many more matched ensembles in the future.
20. Jay-Z and Blue Ivy
Beyoncé's influence may be seen in Blue Ivy, although she prefers her father, Jay-Z. The eight-year-old already has a BET Award under her belt shows that she has inherited her parents' musical prowess.
21. Hilary Duff and Banks Koma
Banks, Hilary Duff's two-year-old daughter with husband Matthew Koma, and Luca Comrie have a striking resemblance, but it's impossible to deny that they look identical. This tiny one might pass for a little Lizzie McGuire with all that golden hair.
22. Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson
The Fifty Shades of Grey franchise has helped Dakota Johnson build a successful acting career (and her meme-able moment on The Ellen Show). Like her ability and looks, she's a direct descendant of Melanie Griffith's fame. Is it possible that these two are identical twins?
23. Nicole Richie and Harlow Madden
It's been 12 years since Nicole Richie and Joel Madden welcomed their daughter Harlow Richie into the world. She resembles her mother down to her curly hair and wide-eyed expression.
24. Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz
Zo Kravitz, the daughter of Lisa Bonet and her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz, has lately appeared in the television series Big Little Lies and High Fidelity. Those of us who were young enough to have seen her mother on shows like The Cosby Show and A Different World may have been transported back in time. Mother and daughter are so beautiful that they might be sisters.
25. Julianne Moore and Liv Freundlich
Julianne Moore and her husband Bart Freundlich's 18-year-old daughter, Liv Freundlich, have a striking resemblance to her mother, particularly in her hair color. Cal, Liv's brother, also has it, but Liv looks exactly like her famous mother.
26. Stella McCartney
Sir Paul McCartney, the lead singer, and composer of the Beatles is possibly the most well-known father on this list. Stella McCartney, the daughter of Paul McCartney, did not follow in her father's footsteps and become a musician. Instead, she became a fashion designer and became a household name with her brand.
27. Emma Roberts
Her father, Eric Roberts, and her aunt, Julia Roberts, are well-known actors and actresses. Throughout his career, Eric has worked on various films, television series, and even music videos. ("We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey is a great example.) Aunt Julia, or "America's Sweetheart," is a household name.
28. Jessica Capshaw
Grey's Anatomy made Jessica Capshaw, Dr. Arizona Robbins, famous as the vibrant and endearing pediatric surgeon. The actress Kate Capshaw from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is her mother. Then there's the fact that her stepfather is the director of Indiana Jones, Steven Spielberg.
29. Zoë Kravitz
I think it's reasonable to say that Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, Zo Kravitz's parents, gave her a lot of tremendous artistic skills. When Zo's mother married Aquaman Jason Momoa, the famed family of Big Little Lies star Zo began to grow even more.
30. Lenny Kravitz
For those who are unfamiliar with the musician and Hunger Games actor, Lenny Kravitz is, in fact, the son of a renowned celebrity. Her role as Helen Willis on The Jeffersons made her a popular TV star, as did his mother Roxie Roker's many other roles on the small screen. A Tony Award nomination came her way in 1974.
31. Lily Collins
Lily Collins, the star of Emily in Paris, is also known for her roles in The Blind Side, Stuck in Love, and Mirror. She is the daughter of Phil Collins, a singer, record producer, and actress in his own right. You'll know his voice from singles like "You'll Be in My Heart" by Tarzan and "In the Air Tonight" by Janet Jackson.
32. Lily-Rose Depp
American actor Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis are the parents of Lily-Rose Depp, who was born in France. Having divided her time between Paris and Los Angeles after the breakdown of her relationship with her parents, she ultimately decided to follow in her father's footsteps. Her acting career has taken off since she appeared in The King and A Faithful Man.
33. Riley Keough
Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, is linked to two artists who altered music: Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston. Now and then, someone would say, 'How strange is it that your grandfather was Elvis Presley and your stepfather was Michael Jackson?'" When I smile and say, "Yeah, it's insane!" they're delighted. Keough informed esquire. "But in reality, I never give it a second thought... However, I've always craved my own money.
34. John David Washington
Anyone's expectations would be high if he were to succeed his famous father's son, Denzel Washington. The good news for John David Washington is that he's been able to keep his footing in the industry. For his appearance in Spike Lee's film BlacKkKlansman, he won Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. He originally gained notoriety on HBO's Ballers.
