Ah, yes, good old nepotism. Anyone who tries to tell you it’s not alive and well in Hollywood is a big liar because practically everyone running around Tinsel Town is related. Unless you’re a struggling actor without any inside connections via your family, it’s actually not a bad thing — we love connecting the dots and finding out new branches of our favorite celebs’ family trees. And just when we think we know everything about who is related to whom, we find out another famous person’s parent(s) are just as famous (if not more famous) than they are, and we’re totally shocked.
Is it fate, or is it all in the family? Here are some of our favorite celebs who were born and raised in super-famous families.
