40 Sibling Superstars Who Show Us That It Runs In The Family

By Arvyn B October 21, 2021

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that being a celebrity is a tough job. You must constantly deal with the press questioning your every move. The paparazzi stalk you everywhere you go, and people critique every part of your life on social media. It’s not something that many of us would be able to deal with. Fame can be such a lonely place. Luckily for these celebrities, they are not the only ones in their family dealing with the price of fame. These famous siblings can talk to each other about navigating the tricky waters of the fame game. With some of these family members, the similarity in their appearance is extraordinary. For others, they seem miles apart!

Stefani & Natali Germanotta

Lady Gaga is known for her truth-dropping lyrics and kooky sense of fashion, making her an icon in the industry. Her real name is Stefani Germanotta, and she has a younger sister named Natali, who has always supported her entirely.

Natali worked as her older sister’s stylist for the hit film A Star is Born. However, unlike Stefani, Natali has mostly tried to stay out of the limelight and works behind the scenes. We can understand why. As we said, fame isn’t for everyone.

Sandra Bullock and Gesine Bullock-Prado

Sandra Bullock is one actress that is highly acclaimed and well-respected, and for a good reason. In 2009, she won an Oscar award for the role she played in The Blind Side. But did you know about her equally talented sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado?

Gesine swapped out scripts for scales and works as a professional baker. As the author of a number of well-received cookbooks, such as Pie It Forward and Sugar Baby, she has flourished in her own way. The sisters have remained very close and always help each other out.

Chris, Luke, and Liam Hemsworth

Almost all of us know that Chris and Liam Hemsworth are brothers. These Australian siblings are very popular around the world for their roles in the Marvel Universe and The Hunger Games series, respectively. So, you might be surprised to learn that they have another brother!

Luke Hemsworth is not as famous as his brothers, mainly because he is located in Australia instead of Hollywood. His acting portfolio is much more low-key. However, you can catch him playing Ashley Stubbs in the hit TV show Westworld.

Britney, Jamie, and Bryan Spears

International legend and pop music icon Britney Spears has been a powerful force in the industry since her debut as a 16-year-old sensation. In recent years, her legal affairs and family problems have become more talked about than her music.

Jamie-Lynn Spears is known for starring on the Nickelodeon show Zoey 101 and being Britney’s younger sister. Bryan, Britney’s brother, Bryan, currently works as a film and television producer. Hopefully, Britney can settle things with them once and for all.

Brad & Doug Pitt

Brad Pitt is one of Hollywood’s most famous faces, with a string of awards and successful films to his name. You might think that being related to such a huge star might make things difficult for you in the long run.

Not for Doug Pitt! Doug is Brad’s younger brother and does not seem to have the same desire for fame. Instead, he works as a human rights philanthropist and successful businessman in Missouri. This is where the Pitt family originated.

Bella & Gigi Hadid

These two might have the same surname, but their looks tell a different story. While Gigi’s face is known for being soft, Bella has a much sharper look to it. Still, this doesn’t stop them from being internationally famous models.

image: shutterstock

They might even welcome another famous face into their family. The Hadids have a brother named Anwar, who is currently dating British-Albanian pop icon Dua Lipa. It seems like this family is meant to continue climbing high on the rungs of fame!

Rihanna, Rorrey, and Rajad Fenty

Rihanna is a music, fashion, and beauty icon who is known worldwide. She comes from a huge family, with a number of siblings and half-siblings from her father’s remarriage. You can see all the evidence that she and her full brothers are related in their faces.

Rajad and Rorrey are apparently very close to their legendary sister. They try to spend lots of time together, a fact we adore. We guess this is probably quite difficult, seeing that Rihanna is constantly jetting around the world for her job.

Scarlett & Hunter Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is known for her broad range as an actress. She has played an incredible range of roles, with her most famous one being Black Widow. If that was not enough, she’s also a superhero mom in real life!

Image: Rena Schild / Shutterstock

However, you might not know that she has a twin brother named Hunter. It seems the acting bug has caught him too! He starred alongside Scarlett in the film Manny & Lo but has not yet achieved the same respect for his chops.

Adam & Michael Levine

Adam Levine is the lead singer for the American pop-rock band Maroon 5. As part of the band, Adam has achieved a string of hits all around the world. But, most people do not know about his beloved brother, Michael.

Image: michaelnlevine / Instagram

It seems that Michael Levine isn’t as interested in fame as his brother. We don’t know a lot about Michael, but we do know that he is very close with his sibling. Apparently, Adam is the protective one in the family!

Rooney & Kate Mara

Both of these sisters are known in their own right for being terrific actresses. You might not have noticed they’re related, though, since they are so different from each other! The only thing similar about them is their long, luscious hair.

image: shutterstock

They are both from a large family and have a wide circle of friends but are easily the most famous ones in the group. Rooney and Kate do a lot of work together to help the less fortunate and animals.

Colin & Jonathan Firth

Colin Firth is one of the most famous actors from England and is often considered one of the best British actors ever. He brings a lot of professionalism and seriousness to every one of his roles. So does his brother!

image: shutterstock

You might not know about Jonathan Firth, but he’s just as talented as his brother. Jonathan has even won a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars. He has won a ton of acclaim and has many successful projects under his belt, and rightly so.

Jennifer, Blaine & Ben Lawrence

Ever since she starred as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games film series, Jennifer has been an A-List celebrity. She has starred in a number of successful films, and her relatable personality has made many people like her on a more human level than other celebrities.

image: theberry.com

One thing that many people don’t know about her is that she is actually the middle sibling. Her older brother is Ben, and her younger brother is Blaine, and they just love their sister. Jennifer often gives back to the community in her hometown.

Sofia & Sandra Vergara

While playing the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett for the hit show Modern Family, Sofia was the highest-paid actress on American television. It is not hard to see why, as her acting chops and comedy timing are incredibly good! We love watching her.

image: sofiavergara / instagram

Her sister, Sandra, is more famous in their home country of Colombia. She has starred on many TV shows and is currently a correspondent for People magazine’s TV series of the same name. Even with the distance, the sisters are pretty close.

Angelina Jolie & James Haven

Angelina Jolie is an actress that might be known just as much for her off-screen life as onscreen! Her relationships and adoptions have been a topic of tabloids for many years. Her brother, James Haven, has dealt with none of this!

Image: Featureflash Photo Agency / Shutterstock

James has kept a relatively low-key profile compared to his sister, but they still work in the same circles. James is a producer and actor, and the duo has a good relationship together. Whenever she needs help, James is there.

Cara & Poppy Delevingne

Cara is another model who is known worldwide for her unique looks. She has worked for many designers and walked runways worldwide, including London Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week. And now, she has moved into the realm of acting.

image: della_vite / instagram

You could say that she’s following after her sister, Poppy. Poppy, who is six years older than Cara, is an actress starring in films like Absolutely Famous: The Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The Delevingnes seem to be unstoppable!

The Franco Brothers

The Franco brothers have featured in various Hollywood movies for quite some time now. The eldest brother, James Franco, has been in numerous hit films, and his younger brother Dave is working his way up to similar fame as well.

image: shutterstock

But that’s not all! There’s also another brother named Tom. Can you guess what his career is? Yep – he’s an actor too! The brothers have their parents to thank for this, as they ensured their childhood was very artsy.

Jennifer & Lynda Lopez

Ever since debuting in the early 90s, Jennifer Lopez – or J-Lo as she’s known – has been a force to be reckoned with. She’s an actress, singer, and songwriter in her own right, entertaining audiences all over the world.

image: shutterstock

Her sister, Lynda Lopez, might look very different from Jennifer, but she is just as driven and hard-working. Lynda has worked as a radio broadcaster, journalist, and author. It is a fact – the Lopez family is certainly not lazy!

Jared & Shannon Leto

Jared Leto has had a very varied career. He first became famous as the frontman of the band 30 Seconds to Mars before becoming an actor. He has starred in iconic roles, such as the villainous Joker in Suicide Squad.

image: shutterstock

However, it is important not to forget the role his family has played in helping to make him famous. Jared’s brother, Shannon, was a founder of 30 Seconds to Mars as well as the drummer. He currently works as DJ and clearly still hangs out with his brother regularly.

Zac & Dylan Efron

Since starring in his breakout role as Troy Bolton in the High School Musical film trilogy, Zac Efron has captured the hearts of many women everywhere. With a chiseled jaw and athletic frame like that, it’s easy to see why!

Image: Zac Efron / Instagram

Equally as attractive is his brother, Dylan. Zac has said that Dylan is Zac’s “barometer” and helps to keep him cool during tough situations. We don’t know what they’re putting in the Efron family water, but we’d like to try it!

Steph & Seth Curry

Moving away from the field of acting, Steph Curry is an internationally famous basketball player. However, he hasn’t let the fame get him and remains a down-to-earth, relatable guy. And it seems that the love of basketball runs in the family.

image: @stephencurry30 / twitter

Steph’s brother, named Seth, also plays basketball professionally. While he doesn’t receive as much credit, Seth is just as hard-working and focused as his brother. They have a strong relationship and look so similar; they couldn’t deny they were related even if they wanted.

Ryan & Mandi Gosling

Ryan Gosling might actually be known more for his looks than his acting roles. He radiates such confidence and charm in every film, as well as in real life. These skills seem to run in the Gosling family, as his sister Mandi has the same fantastic qualities.

image: shutterstock

Mandi is the older sibling of the two, and she set the family trend of working in the TV and film industry. She is a producer and won a Grammy award for her skills on the music video for “Happy.”

Maggie & Jake Gyllenhaal

Here’s another family that caught the acting bug. Jake might seem to be the most famous one of the two and has starred in many critically acclaimed films, but Maggie is just as talented of an actor as her brother.

Image: Featureflash Photo Agency (Shutterstock)

It seems that is not all with this family, though. Because of their father’s bloodline, they are actually Swedish nobility! It’s a fact – the Gyllenhaals rule the silver screen and are also part of the Swedish monarchy. What an amazing family!

Elijah and Hannah Wood

We all remember Elijah from The Lord of the Rings, one of the best films of all time. But it might surprise you to know that two of his four siblings are also actors. Hannah Blessing Wood is a couple years younger, and has been in two movies alongside Elijah.

Image: ashtarcommand / Shutterstock

You can’t see it in this adorable photo of the two, but brother and sister both have the same striking blue eyes. And since they are seen together so often in public, it’s safe to say they have a loving and close relationship.

Sylvester & Frank Stallone

If you’re thinking of a tough movie actor, there’s no doubt that Sylvester Stallone is one of the first people that spring to mind. Most people also know about his mother too, Jackie Stallone. But do you know Sylvester’s brother?

image: shutterstock

Frank Stallone is younger than the icon and has helped him out with many roles. He has helped to write the music for a number of his older brother’s movies. He even starred in some of the Rocky movies alongside Sylvester.

Michael B. & Jamila Jordan

Michael B. Jordan has been an actor for over two decades and is probably most known for his brilliant acting in his role in the movie Black Panther. His sister, Jamila, also works in movies, but she works behind the camera instead.

Image: Featureflash Photo Agency / Shutterstock

Jamila is a producer and helped create films like Glam Master, Ink Master, and Drop the Mic. They also have a younger brother named Khalid, who is an American football player. We wonder what is next for these superstar siblings!

Zoë Kravitz & Lola and Nakoa Momoa

The story of these two siblings is a little more complicated. Zoë is the daughter of legendary rock star Lenny Kravitz. After her birth parents divorced, her mother married famous actor Jason Momoa, who is the lead role in Aquaman.

Image: ZoeisabellaKravitz/Instagram

This makes Zoë half-siblings with Lola and Nakoa Momoa. There might be a huge age gap between them, but that doesn’t stop her from being very close to her little half-brother and half-sister. They are all just so cute together!

Jaden, Willow & Trey Smith

We would imagine being the children of legendary actor Will Smith and actress Jada Pinkett Smith would be a bit daunting. Still, it has not stopped Jaden and Willow! Willow has branched into different genres of music, while Jaden is mostly an actor.

image: shutterstock

Their half-brother, Trey Smith, has a similar set of skills. He is an actor and musician but also works as a DJ. He is older than the twins, so we can imagine he’s a positive force in keeping them steady.

Miley & Noah Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is known as one of the queens of the pop world. Her current image as a popstar is miles away from her teenage days as Hannah Montana. Throughout her career, Miley’s sister Noah has been her rock in tough waters.

Image: Tinseltown (shutterstock)

Noah recently branched out into music, although her musical style is fairly different from her elder sister’s. Noah and Miley also have three-half siblings and a full brother. We guess that they’re probably all amazingly talented in their chosen professions!

Tom Cruise & the Mapother Sisters

Tom Cruise is probably the face for Hollywood actors, as many of his films have enjoyed huge success. Outside of his long career, he is known as being a member of the Church of Scientology. But what about his family?

Image: refinery29.com

Well, it turns out that Tom actually grew up with a pretty big family – one with three sisters, to be exact. It’s not hard to see the family resemblance, as they all have a similar smile and facial structure.

Cameron & Chimene Diaz

You might think that these two sisters are twins, but you would be wrong. Surprise, surprise, they are just sisters with very similar faces! Cameron Diaz is a globally famous actress who disappointed her fans when she retired from acting in 2017.

Image: brilio.net

Her sister, Chimene, could not be more different from Cameron. Chimene is a booking agent and manager for her husband, Robby Armstrong. Chimene and Cameron are very close, and we reckon they have get to spend a lot of time together now.

Mary-Kate, Ashley & Elizabeth Olsen

Ever since they were very young – babies, in fact – Mary-Kate and Ashley have been famous. When they chose to move out of the spotlight and focus on fashion, their sister Elizabeth decided to take their place and, in 2011, started acting.

Image: lizzieolsenn / Instagram

Elizabeth has starred in many hit films and was recently the lead actress of Disney’s huge television show, Wandavision. We can imagine that she has a strong career ahead of her and will continue to go from success to success.

Emma & Alex Watson

Another famous actress that began her career as a child, Emma Watson, is known worldwide as playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise. Since the series ended, she’s been going strong, playing roles like Belle in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

image: shutterstock

Her younger brother, Alex, also enjoys being in front of the camera. He is a model and has worked for numerous campaigns for the designer label Burberry. Alex is pretty close to Emma, and they have a solid, loving relationship.

Luke, Owen & Andrew Wilson

Owen and Luke are a comedic duo that has starred in several films together. Each time they make a film, they make us scream with laughter! But did you know they also have an equally talented older brother named Andrew?

image: Everett Collection (Shutterstock)

Andrew is no rookie to the movie scene, featuring in comedies like Hall Pass and Zoolander with his brothers. However, unlike Luke and Owen, Andrew is also a notable film director. Perhaps all three could make a blockbuster hit movie together.

Nicola & Sofia Richie

Nicole Richie might have played the role of an airhead in The Simple Life, but she’s actually far from it. She is an intelligent businesswoman with various brands under her belt. Hopefully, she’ll help guide her sister in the right direction.

image: sofiarichie / instagram

Nicole and Sofia had a well-documented row with each other after Sofia started dating Scott Disick. If you didn’t know who that is, Scott is a playboy of the Hollywood scene and Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-husband. but we also know that sister bonds are stronger than drama.

Eminem & Nathan Mathers

Eminem, also known as Slim Shady, is one of the most famous male rappers in history. His controversial lyrics and style have earned him a reputation as a skilled lyricist. He is famous across the world and is one of the most-listened-to artists of all time.

image: pinterest

What is less known about Eminem is his half-brother, Nathan Mathers, with whom Eminem is close. Nathan is a huge supporter of his brother and similarly works as a rapper, producer, and actor. Nathan also had a career as a personal trainer.

Rachel Zoe & Pamela

Rachel Zoe has been working for the American fashion industry for over two decades and has enjoyed a very successful career as a result. So, it is wonderful to hear that she has maintained a strong relationship with her sister, Pamela.

image: thezoereport.com

Tragedy struck the family when Pamela was diagnosed with breast cancer, following their mother and grandmother also getting the disease. Thankfully, all three of them made a full recovery and are living happy, healthy lives. How fortunate for this loving family.

Kelly, Jack, and Aimee Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne is a famous heavy metal rock star who has had a huge career since the 70s. He catapulted the rest of his family to fame with their reality show, The Osbournes. However, this show didn’t feature every member.

image: @ozzyosbourne/ twitter

Aimee Osbourne, the youngest child, outright refused to appear in the show. She wanted to become a musician and was worried about the show’s effect on her aspirations. Sadly, she has a poor relationship with her family, and they speak infrequently.

Alexander, Bill & Gustaf Skarsgård

It seems that acting was in their blood! The father of the clan, Stellan, is a hugely famous actor, so it makes sense that many of his children would follow the same path. Alexander played Tarzan in Legend of Tarzan.

image: Kathy Hutchins (Shutterstock)

Bill went in the opposite direction by playing Pennywise in the terrifying horror film It. Gustaf joined the acting scene when he started playing Floki in the hit show Vikings. We wonder if any of their children will be actors, too!

Madonna & Christopher Ciccone

Since her debut single was released way back in 1983, Madonna has become a legend and icon in the music scene. However, things were not always so great, as she had a feud with her brother, Christopher, starting in 2008.

image: Featureflash Photo Agency (Shutterstock)

Christopher released a tell-all memoir called Life with My Sister Madonna. Understandably, she was furious that he revealed many personal details about her life. We are quite happy to say that they recently patched things up and are friends again.

Penelope & Monica Cruz

Another famous bilingual acting sensation, Penelope, first started her career at the tender age of 16. In the early 00s, Penelope became a film star in America and had prominent in various hit movies like Murder on the Orient Express.

image: Tinseltown (Shutterstock)

Her sister, Monica, might not be as famous as Penelope, but she is certainly just as talented – and beautiful! Monica is an actress and a dancer. She’s featured in a few Spanish films and appeared in American ones, too.
