Celebrities and Their Famous Kids at the Same Age

When it comes to celebrities, their talents and trademark good looks often run in the family. As it turns out, blood runs just as thick as skill, and several stars end up following in their parents’ footsteps as famed actors, models, musicians, and more.

From Tom Hanks’ nearly-doppelganger son to Presleys and Jacksons joining the family music business, here are just a few celebrity kids who look a lot like their famous folks.

STELLAN SKARSGåRD AND ALEXANDER SKARSGåRD AT AGE 35

Sure, it may seem like Alexander Skarsgård is just living off of his father’s money – and yes, Stellan has been working in the industry for decades – but look at everything Alex has accomplished. He landed a leading role on The Legend of Tarzan alongside Margot Robbie and recently was awarded an Emmy award.

BLYTHE DANNER AND GWYNETH PALTROW AT AGE 30

If you’ve ever been curious about the source of Gwyneth Paltrow’s delicate white skin and blond hair, it turns out that she takes after her famous mom. Blythe Danner starred in several films before being overshadowed by what some might say is an even more talented daughter. But through it all, Blythe has aged remarkably well – which means Gwyneth can rest easy knowing that she’ll only need to worry about anti-aging when she reaches her mother’s age (which doesn’t seem like it’ll happen anytime soon).

RON HOWARD AND BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD AT AGE 25

Looking at Ron Howard’s photos from the 70s, one can see him as Richie Cunningham in the famous sitcom Happy Days. Yet he is better known for directing amazing movies such as Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, and The Da Vinci Code. His daughter Bryce Dallas Howard follows in his footsteps by being an actress too. She starred alongside Chris Pratt recently in Jurassic World. Their shared lineage does not end there: both father and daughter sport fiery red hair – which we can only imagine how easy it must be to maintain! Even though she started out acting when she was young, at this point Bryce knows how to make a living from it; but perhaps her dad might just leave her a little something back!

ROBIN WRIGHT AND DYLAN PENN IN THEIR 20S

If you are lucky enough to inherit the good looks from both your mother and father, there will be plenty of opportunities knocking at your door. For example, Dylan Penn–whose lineage can easily be traced back to actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright–has been building up a reputation in the modeling world with her natural talent. Alongside Wilhelmina Models, she is quickly moving up the ranks as an influential figure in the fashion industry. She doesn’t need an ancestry test because it’s clear just by looking at her that she has inherited all those great genes from both sides of her family tree.

VANESSA REDGRAVE AND JOELY RICHARDSON IN THEIR 20S

Vanessa Redgrave has been praised by Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller as the greatest actress of our times. Her daughter, Joely Richardson, will likely never reach this caliber unless she too continues down a career path in theater, television or film but inherited her mother’s skill set which includes fame across all three mediums. With an Emmy award, Tony Award, Olivier Award, Golden Globe Award Screen Actors’ Guild Award (SAG), BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role (BAFTA), Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress for the movie Gone With The Wind and Academy Awards for A Room with A View, Vanessa should leave behind plenty of fortune to inherit without needing money from other sources.

LIONEL RICHIE AND NICOLE RICHIE AT AGE 33

Even though it has been found out that Lionel Richie is not Nicole Richie’s biological father, they will still maintain a close bond as father and daughter. He and his first wife Brenda Harvey adopted her when she was just two years old. Despite her rebellious nature throughout the past, Nicole had managed to create an independent fashion line – House of Harlow 1960- which had made it easier for her to be successful without relying on any outside help.

KATE BECKINSALE AND LILY MO SHEEN AT 18 YEARS OLD

Kate Beckinsale is an English-American actress who made headlines playing lead roles in hit movies such as Serendipity, Pearl Harbor, and the popular movie franchise Underworld. Her relationship with actor Michael Sheen began when she was 22 years old and they have one daughter together named Lily Grace Flanagan. In addition to an estimated $15 million net worth, her daughter has also been blessed with a trust fund given by Kate to protect her family legacy while studying at college.

MEL GIBSON AND MILO GIBSON AT AGE 27

Mel Gibson’s son, Milo Gibson, may have inherited his father’s famous blue eyes and good looks – but for the two to truly resemble one another (enough so that people do not mistake them), Milo will probably need some plastic surgery. He has all the qualities necessary to make it in Hollywood though; up until now at 27 years old, he resisted his family ties by trying many different jobs beforehand – even becoming a massage therapist and an electrician before deciding to follow in his father’s footsteps as an actor too.

MELANIE GRIFFITH AND DAKOTA JOHNSON AT AGE 25

Melanie Griffith was at an age where she could understand the real definition of love when her affair with Don Johnson began. After reuniting in 1989, they conceived a child together who would become one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses – Dakota Johnson. Before starting any surgeries for anti-aging purposes or for altering appearances, Melanie had a captivating face that resembled what Dakota would eventually look like later on. With two famous actors for parents who love each other deeply, it isn’t surprising that little Dakota took up acting too; whether it’s Fifty Shades or something else – there’s no denying that this girl is going places!

DAVID BECKHAM AND BROOKLYN BECKHAM AT AGE 16

People had assumed that David Beckham’s son would follow in his father’s footsteps and play soccer too, just like him. After all, he is still considered the best soccer player there ever was. But David being such a great father that he is, wasn’t forcing soccer down Brooklyn’s throat- what he did give him was the boyish good looks from which many of these fashion brands could not resist hiring him as one of their models. For now, though, it seems that Brooklyn is content with his other passion- taking pictures (his Instagram feed proves this). And if things don’t work out for him in this industry- we’re sure his mother or even dad has built up quite a hefty trust fund for him to fall back on.

QUINCY JONES AND RASHIDA JONES AT AGE 31

When you have one of the most popular producers in music history as your father, it can be expected that you would grow up with all the necessary means to succeed. However, this isn’t always so for Rashida Jones – Quincy Jones’ daughter and one of seven children he has had throughout his lifetime. She is a well-known actress, screenwriter, comic book author – but she doesn’t stop there! She also performs vocals when she feels like it. Her current wealth puts her at about $25 million; though this number could rise exponentially if her father blesses her with some extra change left over in his bank account after he passes away.

KATE CAPSHAW AND JESSICA CAPSHAW AT AGE 31

When Kate Capshaw’s name is mentioned, people often picture her in a red dress when she played Willie Scott in the movie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Married to Steven Spielberg for almost two decades now – you might say it was love at first sight for them both. But before this all came about, she’d previously been married with one daughter by that time-Jessica. Even though she comes from old Hollywood heritage and could easily live off life savings or trust funds as so many do nowadays; Kate continues to work as an actress because she wants to keep true to herself at heart, not relying on an inheritance or anything else but hard work and determination.

JEREMY IRONS AND MAX IRONS AT AGE 32

Jeremy Irons has been a very visible actor in Hollywood since the 1980s, and aside from his acting prowess (he has an Oscar to prove it), he is most prominent for his commanding voice. Everyone familiar with the animated movie, The Lion King, will remember him as the actor who gave the villain, Scar’s, voice. Max Irons admitted himself in an interview that he takes more after his mother in the looks department, and not his father. But a Hollywood DNA test will show that what Max inherited from his dad is his love for acting – which is also why this young boy was so brave to try make it big when people only know him as Jeremy’s son instead of just plain old ‘Max.’

JOHN ANISTON AND JENNIFER ANISTON IN THEIR LATE 40S

Now, we can see where actress Jennifer Aniston gets her gorgeous olive skin from – because it is from her father, John Aniston. He himself was known for his roles in soap operas and had Greek ancestry. We know the Friends star won’t rely on him too much because he makes plenty of money as an actor even if she isn’t getting high reviews lately! Of course, one aspect which gives the actress these attractive wrinkles? Her anti-aging secret; namely, a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen.

DENZEL WASHINGTON AND JOHN DAVID WASHINGTON AT AGE 33

Even if John David Washington’s acting career has only recently started through the HBO television series Ballers, we are pretty sure the future will definitely be good if he inherited his father’s acting skills, just as he has inherited his good looks. Denzel Washington is celebrated in Hollywood for his ability to excellently play any role thrown in his direction. If John plays his cards right, he may replace his father upon his retirement from acting.

STEVEN TYLER AND LIV TYLER IN THEIR 30S

Believe it or not, Liv Tyler only found out her father was singer Steven Tyler when she was already 9 years old. From birth until she turned nine, Liv had always thought that musician Todd Rundgren was her father. But there were times when she would notice the resemblance between herself and someone else in photographs – especially when the other person looked just like her. There wasn’t a need for any DNA tests because all it took was one look at Liv’s face to know who his real dad was – himself! Surprisingly, while having an extensive career as a music legend, Liv has also starred in some of Hollywood’s most successful movies such as Armageddon and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

AGE 18: GIGI HADID AND YOLANDA FOSTER

Taking a look at their photo, Yolanda and Gigi could pass off as twins. Her daughter, Gigi Hadid is a current ‘It Girl’ in the fashion industry – with her face on every billboard and magazine cover. Do you think that Yolanda wishes for an anti-aging secret to bring back her youthful skin to match her young girl’s skin? We would – if we were in her shoes – but she has had success in the modeling world, so it’s time for these kids to take advantage of the good genes they inherited from their mother. Meet the Hadids – this family of models who has been called ‘the first family of fashion,’ worth over $57 million combined, and are making plenty of investment plans along the way!

John Travolta and Ella Beau Travolta in their late teens/early twenties

The world knows John Travolta as a Hollywood icon who won hearts with numerous performances. And while they might have loved him for his work, it is undeniable that this actor was always in a league of his own; winning several accolades throughout his career including an IIFA Award and a Golden Globe. This was just one side to the story though – successful at both acting and being wealthy too!

He has a handsome daughter- Ella Beau Travolta, who inherited his immense good looks. Ella had already made her mark when she starred in Old Dogs at only six years old. Since then, she has shown no sign of slowing down – starring in the 2019 blockbuster The Poison Rose at just nine years old! With her father John providing guidance every step of the way, we can expect big things from this young up-and-coming actress!

JACK NICHOLSON AND RAY NICHOLSON AT AGE 26

Actor Jack Nicholson is critical-acclaimed, and Hollywood would not have been able to experience this if he did not pass down his ‘acting genes’ to his children. Jack has five children, and only one of them is reportedly following in his father’s footsteps. At an early age, Ray Nicholson was already seen by many NBA players attending baseball games with his famous father; making him grow up before our eyes when we saw him each time for the first time at these events. As a result, now 26 years old, people are expecting nothing less than greatness from this man because they know that his amazing father has provided us with some legendary performances over the years. They even compare him to Leonardo DiCaprio due to how good-looking he is!

CARRIE FISHER AND BILLIE LOURD AT AGE 23

If both your grandmother and mother were Hollywood actresses, it would be expected you to follow in their footsteps. This is exactly what Billie Lourd did – following her celebrity parents Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds – by joining the newest Star Wars film. Some fans have been taken aback by this act while others wonder if she used hair products to maintain her flowing locks during a long-time screening.

TOM HANKS AND COLIN HANKS AT AGE 25

Tom Hanks has one of the most enviable careers in Hollywood, and his passion for acting has been inherited by his son, Colin. Despite bearing an uncanny resemblance to him, however, he is not so fortunate with his career choices when compared to his father; yet, Colin is still young and does have a chance of overtaking Tom – who knows? If he doesn’t make it there then he can always rely on Tom’s million-dollar trust fund that was set up for him.

AGE 25: KATE HUDSON AND GOLDIE HAWN

Place a young Goldie Hawn next to her daughter, Kate Hudson, and she’d easily pass as her twin. Their resemblance runs deep – especially when it comes to their natural, striking looks inherited from their mother. Though many similarities run between them, the one that is most notable is what they share in common; their blonde locks. Allowing these two women (mother and daughter) to share this mutual trait of beauty was only done out of love for each other – because neither woman has let age get in the way! With such an astounding net worth of $60 million, Goldie Hawn doesn’t have anything to worry about financially; she can rest easy without fears of mortgage or loans hanging over her head.

MARVIN GAYE AND NONA GAYE AT AGE 38

No one could deny that Marvin Gaye was extraordinary. With a voice as powerful and nuanced as his, it is no wonder why he became an overnight sensation after signing with Motown Records’ Berry Gordy Jr.’s company. This success did not last long though; just a year later, at age 40, Prince of Soul would be killed by his abusive father while doing nothing but driving past in their car to pick up clothes from the dry cleaners. He left behind three children who would never know what truly happened on this fateful morning–except for his oldest daughter Nona who witnessed it all because she had followed them with her friend Afeni Shakur to keep them safe.

PRINCESS DIANA AND PRINCE WILLIAM AT AGE 35

When looking at Prince William, it is easy to tell that he got his good looks from his mother – Princess Diana. From her fair skin tone and honey brown hair to her round face shape, the resemblance between them is astonishingly clear even without a DNA test. The same can be said about George, William’s young son who has the same features as him but with lighter skin and reddish hair.

ROBERT DE NIRO AND DRENA DE NIRO AT AGE 35

With a renowned and wealthy father, it may seem too easy to live off of his name alone. But what some people don’t know is that this isn’t the case for Rashida Jones, one of Quincy’s seven daughters. Not only has she acted in several films and tv shows but she has also written screenplays; including stories in both comic books and novels – always with her own twist. She has even been known to sing on occasion – just think how rich she would be if her dad were to pass!

JANET LEIGH AND JAMIE LEE CURTIS AT AGE 20

Who would have thought that Jamie Lee Curtis, whose mother is famous for playing the victim in a horror flick, Psycho – would also one day get involved with a slasher film herself. She even has first-hand experience with horror films, as she had played alongside other scream queens on Halloween just years before. Additionally, it doesn’t come as surprise to know both her and her mother are very wealthy. After all, her mother alone has amassed enough wealth over her long career to count themselves among those dubbed Millionaires. And it certainly seems to run in the family when it comes to finances; I doubt they need to worry about making another dollar anytime soon!

LISA MARIE PRESLEY AND BENJAMIN KEOUGH AT AGE 25

The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley is best known for his musical abilities and those pouty little lips. One could argue that he has given his granddaughter (Lisa Marie) a good chunk of what she needs to succeed – including her killer vocals and gorgeous baby blues. However, only time will tell if Benjamin inherits any other talents from the family genes pool. So far it seems as though he’s stuck in a singing-only limbo while his sister Danielle Riley Keough shines brighter than ever before as an up-and-coming actress.

UMA THURMAN AND MAYA HAWKE IN THEIR TEENS

Before Uma Thurman became a famed Hollywood actress, she was first a successful fashion model who had been discovered by an agent at JFK airport when she was just nineteen years old. Her tall stature and striking features would have given it away, in our opinion- after all, you can’t fake those things! And now her only child, Maya Hawke- the daughter of actor Ethan Hawke- has followed suit with her own success story, becoming yet another member of the family to pursue an acting career. Already starring on the popular Netflix show Little Women as well as making appearances in hit series like Stranger Things (and rumored to make an appearance for season three), there is no denying that this new generation of stars is definitely one to watch out for.

BILLIE RAY CYRUS AND MILEY CYRUS AT AGE 16

Billie Ray Cyrus left many fans devastated in 1993, when he married Leticia Tish Cyrus, just a few months after having their first child together; Destiny Hope Cyrus. Much to everyone’s surprise – but especially to young Miley’s – she didn’t take after her father or mother physically as much as people would have thought. With just one look at her from the side or back you would never tell who her parents were – it was something about how Tish carried herself and how Billie could never keep his mouth shut during interviews that gave them away. There wasn’t even a trust fund set up for Miley because with her personal net worth (currently) being $200 million while her dad only has $20 million – there was no need for it!

MICHAEL JACKSON AND PARIS JACKSON AT AGE 20

Michael Jackson was a well-known celebrity and millionaire, so it is unsurprising that the children he leaves behind would be granted large sums of money when they turn 30 or 40 years old. There have been many reports about Paris’ finances since she began working as an actress and model at such a young age. Reports say she receives $8 million dollars each year from her trust fund but still chooses to work for herself by getting jobs for modelling and acting.
