Video Celebs You Never Knew Had Famous Parents
05:28   |   1M+ views   |   today at 00:14


  • Unless you follow your favorite stars closely, you might not know that some of today's biggest
  • celebrities had some help along the way from mom and dad.
  • While some aren't afraid to trade on their family name, others have taken great pains
  • to hide their famous heritage and prove that they made it in the business through hard
  • work and talent.
  • Either way, some celebrities have parents who are famous in their own right.
  • Celebs like...
  • Chris Pine
  • Actor Chris Pine is probably best known as the new Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams' alternate-reality
  • Star Trek franchise, but an entirely different TV show paved Pine's way into Hollywood.
  • CHiPs, the classic series about a pair of motorcycle-riding cops, featured Pine's father,
  • Robert, in a recurring role as Sgt.
  • Joseph Getraer.
  • To Pine's credit, he reportedly only used his famous dad to help him land a job as a
  • production assistant.
  • The young actor then worked his way up in the business, going from from building sets
  • to starring in the 2017 blockbuster Wonder Woman.
  • Billie Lourd
  • Like a lot of children of Hollywood stars, Billie Lourd doesn't go by the last name of
  • her famous mother, the late Carrie Fisher.
  • However, Lourd has embraced the family business by appearing in new Star Wars movies The Force
  • Awakens and The Last Jedi, and at the red carpet premiere of the latter, Lourd honored
  • the departed Fisher by recreating her iconic Princess Leia look.
  • After her mother's passing, Lourd also became responsible for a very special family member:
  • Gary Fisher, who's become an integral part of the Star Wars universe.
  • Okay, maybe not integral, but he's still a pretty awesome space pooch.
  • Katie Cassidy
  • Actress Katie Cassidy burst onto the scene with parts on 7th Heaven, Supernatural, and
  • the Melrose Place reboot before landing her most prominent role on the hit CW show Arrow.
  • If her last name sounds familiar, that's because she's the daughter of the late David Cassidy,
  • star of the hit '70s sitcom The Partridge Family.
  • David admitted in interviews that he didn't raise Katie.
  • She lived with her mother, Sherry Williams.
  • In the years leading up to his passing, Katie and David became so estranged that she was
  • reportedly left out of his will.
  • However, People reported that Katie rushed to her father's side when he was hospitalized.
  • The Arrow star said her father's last words--"So much wasted time"--will serve as "a daily
  • reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love."
  • Benedict Cumberbatch
  • As the son of well-known British actors Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham, Benedict Cumberbatch
  • may follow the trend of not using a famous parent's last name, but in a twist, the Sherlock
  • star actually uses his real family name.
  • Benedict's mother reportedly warned him not to do so because the Cumberbatch surname,
  • which his father chose not to use professionally, is heavily associated with slavery, according
  • to the The Telegraph.
  • "They probably would have been happier in the beginning if I had been a doctor or a
  • lawyer or teacher or something sensible."
  • "They knew the difficulties of being an actor…"
  • "... as did I!"
  • However, the Daily Mail reported that Benedict has purposefully taken roles in films that
  • highlight the awfulness of the slave industry to atone for his ancestors.
  • Grace Gummer
  • Newcomer Grace Gummer might not have a prominent film career, but the actress has been building
  • a solid resume on the small screen with roles on American Horror Story, The Newsroom, and
  • Mr. Robot.
  • It shouldn't be a surprise that Gummer has become a reliable talent in her field: her
  • mom is Meryl Streep.
  • You might assume having Streep as a parent would be an instant pass to stardom, but Gummer
  • is putting in the work and striving to research every role, according to V Magazine.
  • Will she one day dominate the Oscars like her mom?
  • For now, she's forging her own path in the ever-changing Hollywood landscape.
  • Rashida Jones
  • When it comes to last names, it doesn't get more common than Jones, so it would be easy
  • to assume that Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones comes from an average, run-of-the-mill
  • American family.
  • Think again: the star is actually the daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones.
  • However, it's tough to say who really wields the power in this family.
  • Rashida had her famous dad recast on Angie Tribeca after he played her TV father for
  • the pilot.
  • "Who fires Quincy Jones?!"
  • "Listen…"
  • "You're out, Jones!"
  • Dakota Johnson
  • In 2013, little-known actress Dakota Johnson landed the coveted role of Anastasia Steele
  • in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but Johnson wasn't entirely unknown to the Hollywood scene
  • before her big break.
  • She's the daughter of veteran actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and thanks to mom,
  • Dakota made her first big-screen debut in Crazy in Alabama before the age of 10.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow
  • While Steven Spielberg is often credited with launching Gwyneth Paltrow's career by casting
  • his goddaughter in Hook, the future Goop entrepreneur actually had some help from her showbiz industry
  • parents, actress Blythe Danner and director/producer Bruce Paltrow.
  • To Gwyneth's credit, she built her own name in Hollywood by turning in an Oscar-winning
  • performance for Shakespeare in Love.
  • Mom and Dad might've opened a few doors, but it was Gwyneth who put in the work.
  • Alexander Skarsgard
  • Actor Alexander Skarsgard might be one of the top hunks in Hollywood, but the Legend
  • of Tarzan star also has some impressive acting chops that earned him an Emmy award for best
  • supporting actor in HBO's Big Little Lies.
  • That shouldn't come as a surprise if you know that his father is veteran actor Stellan Skarsgard,
  • who you may recognize from Thor and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
  • Thanks to his dad, Alexander got an early jump on acting and was a star in Sweden by
  • age 13, but the experience freaked him out so much that he actually quit acting and almost
  • became an architect, according to The Telegraph.
  • Fortunately for fans of the Swedish heartthrob, Skarsgard caught the acting bug again, and
  • he's never looked back.
  • "It's like ex-squeeze me, but have you ever heard of styling gel?"
