Famous Families Who’ve Had Generations In The Spotlight
1. The Beckhams
What more could you want from a megastar football player and the stylish Spice Girl? The Beckhams are a whole different breed of British royalty. It is hard not to call an attorney and sue them for being so darn gorgeous. The “it factor” seems to run through the family bloodline considering the eldest Beckham offspring has made his own mark as a social media darling with his artsy photography skills while his younger brother Romeo seems to enjoy his time as a commercial model having been featured in several TV ads and campaigns.
2. The Osbournes
The public witnessed Kelly Osbourne’s transition to adulthood. She is now a respected media personality and TV host, a far cry from her days as a temperamental reality TV teenager. The quirky family’s life was the main premise of their TV show. It chronicled the famous Osbournes with Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy and his posh wife, Sharon. The roof repair in their household must have been crazy.
3. The Hanks
Tom Hanks has endured a very successful movie career. He has been featured in numerous critically-acclaimed films and box office hits. This makes him a bona fide Hollywood icon. His son, Colin Hanks might have caught the acting bug from his famous father. Colin is a star in hit TV shows like Dexter and Fargo.
4. The Roberts
Being the daughter of Oscar-nominated actor Eric Roberts and niece to Pretty Woman lead Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts is showing off her acting chops in Hollywood snagging starring roles in Scream Queens and American Horror Story.
5. The Depps
With her model features and superstar charisma, it is no surprise why Lily-Rose Melody Depp captured an audience in Yoga Hosers at the young age of 16. She has been seen photographed in many magazines and has graced numerous designer runways. As the offspring of acting legend Johnny Depp and Chanel muse and French recording artist Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose is becoming an emerging Hollywood sensation and fashion icon. With how much her career has flourished early on, Lily-Rose doesn’t seem to worry about all those student loans.
6. The Griffith/Johnsons
Being the daughter of Working Girl star Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson (who is known for portraying James “Sonny” Crockett in Miami Vice back in the ‘80s) sure has its perks! Dakota Johnson is a stunning beauty and class act with her work in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Her A-list background made it easy for her to earn her rank as a red carpet darling.
7. The Smiths
Hip-hop icon and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air himself, Will Smith is known for raising the coolest kids together with his wife actress, Jada Pinkett-Smith. The lovely couple has two children together, a son, Jaden, and a daughter, Willow. Jaden bagged a starring role in Karate Kid and is a frequent collaborator for pop star Justin Bieber. While his sister, Willow is making her mark as a soulful crooner with the chart-topper, Whip My Hair back when she was just only 15 years old! Will’s eldest son, Trey from a previous marriage with Sheree Zampino is now a professional DJ based in Los Angeles. Music and effortless swag definitely run in the family.
8. The Douglas
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and that is exactly the case here for the father-son duo, Kirk and Michael Douglas. Kirk was an acting legend with the 1960s classic Spartacus. Hollywood is literally Michael’s life as he is also married to Welsh beauty and Mask of Zorro actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.
9. The Sutherlands
Talent runs through Sutherland’s veins. The runaway success of 24 made Kiefer Sutherland a household name. He can thank his father, award-winning actor Donald Sutherland and mother, Canadian actress Shirley Douglas, for those natural acting chops. It seems like enrolling in their online classes is a pretty good idea.
10. The Hawn/Hudsons
Blonde beauty and Oscar-nominated Kate Hudson took after her gorgeous mom, actress Goldie Hawn. She is also the step-daughter of celebrated actor Kurt Russel. Her brother Oliver Hudson starred in Nashville and Rules of Engagement. With her mom’s marriage to Kurt Russel, her step-brother is Wyatt Russel from 22 Jump Street.
