Being a star sounds great, but sometimes it’s not easy. You might think it’s because of notoriety, the paparazzi and all that, but the truth is, in general it’s mostly because of his own family according to the stories of parents of stars who put shame on their children and the parents of stars who scammed their children. Some must therefore be very happy when they end up breaking through more than their parents. So here are some stars who can boast of having participated in the social ascent of their mif.
1. Matthieu Chedid (M)
The little Matthieu comes from a family of mega remained with first of all his father, Louis Chedid, composer of the musical The Pink Soldier, author, performer and director, but especially her grandmother, Andrée Chedid, woman of letters and world-renowned poetess. And yet despite an already high swag rate, M managed to top it all. Strong, very strong.
2. Kim Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall Jenner
So yes, Kim, Kendall and Kylie owe a lot to their mom, Kris Jenner who, in addition to having given them life, managed a good part of their career by being their manager, especially for the reality TV show keeping up with the Kardashians. Yet today, it is the daughters of Kris Jenner who have the most coast. You only have to take a look at their Instagram subscribers to see that mom Jenner has gone over to the has-been side with only 45.5 million subscribers for the daronne against 281 million for Kim, 214 million for Kendall and 304 million for Kylie. It hurts.
3. Vincent Cassel
Yes, in case you did not know, Vincent Cassel is the son of actor Jean-Pierre Cassel. He played in a lot of films between 1950 and the 2000s. However, it was his son who won a lot of awards with, among others, the Césars, a Crystal Globe, a Gold Star… He still has to be proud the padre.
Of course, Billy Ray Cyrus is very well known, especially in the United States, for his role as Robby Ray Stewart in the Hannah Montana series (played by Miley, but you knew that) and for his incredible musical career in country music. He is nevertheless a little less well known than his daughter now because she has become an international star thanks to her many roles in series for teens and her music which has been a big hit all over the world (but yes, think back to Wrecking-Ball).
5. Jennifer Aniston
We forget him too often but before being one of the main characters of Friends and to become a world famous and jealous actress (by myself, I admit it), Jennifer Aniston was above all the daughter of John Aniston, actor known for having played in the soap opera Days and lives. And yet, it is our Jenifer who has had a plethora of awards and who is today the big star of the family.
6. Whitney Houston
The late Whitney Houston wasn’t the only celebrity in the family. His mother, Cissy Houston, was also a great soul and gospel singer. The two women also sang I know Him So Well together. It is nevertheless Whitney who had the best career since she was also a model and an actress (and she sang I wanna dance with somebody, best song ever).
7. Ben Stiller
Although Jerry Stiller is piss funny on the show Seinfeld, his career remains a little below that of his son Ben Stiller. It must be said that the guy still played in Zoolander, A Night at the Museum, Mary at all cost and Madagascar, in addition to being a good humorist and an excellent director. Of course, it’s hard to fight.
8. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth’s mother, Blythe Danner, didn’t sell candles made from her love juice and that’s probably why she’s less famous than her daughter. If she still played in My stepfather and me, Will & Grace and huff, it was not enough to compete with the career of his daughter, who is still found in the Avengers. Sorry Blythe.
9. Angelina Jolie
We are very saddened for Jon Voight, the father of Angelina Jolie, who had an incredible acting career in the 70s. He even won an Oscar for his role in Coming Home. But that’s not enough to overtake little Angelina who is probably one of the most famous chicks on the planet today (after Élise de Topito, of course).
10. Jane Fonda
From birth, Jane Fonda enjoyed mega prestige because she was the daughter of Henry Fonda, a member of Hollywood royalty and the oldest man to win the Best Actor Oscar for On Gold Pond. Unfortunately, his daughter will quickly surpass him with two Oscars and awards, do you want some, here you go.
11. Jessica Capshaw
If Kate Capshaw, mother of Jessica Capshaw, is very famous for her role as Willie Scott in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, his daughter is all the more so for his entire career. It has been seen in particular in The Practice: Bobby Donnell and Associates, but especially in Grey’s Anatomy where she plays Arizona Robbins. We love him with love.
12. Kate Hudson
Let’s give back to Caesar what belongs to the cinema: Kate Hudson would certainly not be here today without the fine career of her little mother Goldie Hawn, who nevertheless won an Oscar and starred in many successful films in the years 70s and 80s. But well, difficult for her to reach the status of her daughter when you know that Kate starred in almost famous and How to get dumped in ten lessons.
