Awww, when they look the same it's so cute! Celebrities and their parents or children who look like them fill us with love, doesn't it? Sometimes the parent is no longer with us, so looking at their children warms our hearts. At other times, their kids are too young, but we can imagine or digitally create how they will look. Like the Clooneys, who you will soon read about. Other celebrities have outdone themselves in the gene pool. Are you ready to meet all the stars whose kids look like them? Brace yourself for Tom Selleck's daughter, 33-year-old Hannah Margaret Selleck.
Famous Kids Who Look Similar to Their Celebrity ParentsPublished 4 months ago
Born in 1999 to talented actor Johnny Depp and French singer Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp certainly inherited her parents’ beautiful genes. Johnny and Vanessa separated in 2012 after 14 years of being together. Lily-Rose is now making a name for herself as an actress, and her modeling career is also rising.
Lily-Rose is hard at work these days, and when she’s not on a film set or fashion shoot, you can find her attending film festivals like Sundance, Cannes, and the Venice Film Festival. She was also chosen as the face of Chanel’s fragrances. With her unique beauty and natural talents, we have a feeling the world will be seeing more of her on the big screen in the coming years.
Clint Eastwood has one of the most famous faces in show business. For this proud father, his most impressive accomplishment is having Scott Eastwood as his son. As for Scott, he certainly hit the jackpot in the looks department. The guy is a model, and he obviously got his charm from his daddy.
You’ve probably also seen Scott in movies like The Fate of the Furious and Pacific Rim: Uprising, but he hasn’t made it big yet in that department. If he’s inherited his father’s enormous talent, then his big break will be coming soon. We’re looking forward to seeing more of him on the big screen.
Back when Heather Locklear was only 20 years old, she was an absolute charmer with her doll eyes and lovely hairstyle. Her 20-year-old daughter Ava Sambora has clearly inherited her incredible beauty. Ava is an aspiring model who is still completing her studies at Loyola Marymount University.
Ava’s mom has ensured she has a brighter future ahead of her by investing in her education and health insurance. Having already appeared in This Is 40 (2012) and other TV shows, we’re sure Ava will make a name for herself and someday be as famous as her mom.
Rumer Willis has to have a place on this list, simply because her parents are two of Hollywood’s biggest stars – Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Rumer is a clear duplicate of Bruce and Demi, though we are a tad confused as to whether she looks more like her dad or her mom.
After graduating from college, the star daughter followed her famous parents’ into acting, and though she’s had minor roles in films since the 90s, her claim to fame materialized thanks to the hit comedy film, The House Bunny. Nowadays, Rumer is busy with her TV show Empire, and we hope her star continues to shine brighter with each passing year.
The old “two peas in a pod” saying applies nowhere more perfectly than with John Ritter and his son Jason. The famous father and son have certainly earned their place on this list. John won hearts with every role he took on, though you probably recognize him most from the sitcoms 8 Simple Rules and Three’s Company.
Jason seems to have inherited his father’s acting talent. Jason Ritter is well-known for his impressive performances in The Event, and Joan of Arcadia. We’re looking forward to seeing him in more standout projects in the future.
Super-talented actor and director Mel Gibson earned international fame with his impressive performances in films such a Brave Heart, Mad Max, and the Lethal Weapon series. He is known as a leading man who’s not afraid to get involved in incredible stunts and action sequences.
Mel had a child with his ex-wife, Robyn Moore. Milo is lucky to have inherited his father’s good looks. He also followed in his father’s footsteps, launching a career in show business. We hope his hard work pays off and he can live up to his father’s talent. However, we pray that Milo doesn’t imitate Mel’s habit of making controversial statements that damage his career.
British actress Thandiwe Newton is partly known for her starring roles in Beloved (1998), Mission: Impossible 2 (2000), and The Pursuit of Happyness (2006). She has won many awards, including an Emmy and a BAFTA.
Her gorgeous daughter with Ol Parker, Nico, who was born in December 2004 and looks more like Newton's twin sister, is following in her mother's footsteps as an actress. Indeed, after making her film debut as Milly Farrier in the Tim Burton-directed movie Dumbo in 2019, she is now starring in the 2023 HBO drama series The Last of Us.
The Sheens are so famous they barely need any introduction. Martin Sheen is a household name, having appeared in movie theaters for many decades. As a youngster, he was so keen to pursue acting that he didn’t even finish his college degree. It turned out to be a good decision as his talent for acting was so immense it even rubbed off on his son Charlie.
Although his personal life creates more headlines than his career, Charlie Sheen is greatly adored for his brilliant work as an actor. The image above shows just how much of a duplicate he is of his father. The looks and talent shared by the Sheens have landed them many notable roles (and fat paychecks) over the years.
Need a strong gene pool? Take it from host and actor Alan Thicke who passed on his legacy and his tantalizing grey eyes to his son Robin. Alan, known for his remarkable performance in Growing Pains, tragically died in 2016 due to heart complications. His son, Robin Thicke, is now a popular singer and song producer.
Robin has collaborated with some of today’s greatest musicians such as Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, and Usher, among others. Although he didn’t acquire his father’s life insurance policy, we’re sure Robin has a healthy bank account.
Cindy Crawford is one of the most famous faces in the world of modeling. She is also the proud mother of Kaia Gerber. At 18 years of age, Kaia is already making waves in the modeling industry. While many have said that her success is all due to her uncanny resemblance to her mom, we think Kaia is an independent young lady who has her own talent and style.
Of course, Cindy would still have to be a big influence on her. And you have to admit, they do look a lot alike. In case you’re wondering, Kaia didn’t inherit her mom’s iconic mole – that was added for the photoshoot.
Phil Collins might have considered a divorce lawyer when his marriage with Jill Tavelman failed, but his daughter Lily Collins has finally forgiven him. In fact, the young actress opened up by writing a letter in which she expressed that she missed her father, and despite the issues between them, she had finally forgiven Phil.
More than her talent in her latest Emily In Paris, we admire Lily’s kindness and ability to forgive. We’re hoping she will go a long way. With her talent and the good looks she inherited from her father, we’re sure Lily will become a superstar in her own right.
We don't know anyone who’s not captivated by Enrique Iglesias’ smoldering looks and sensuous voice. The charming musician has been romancing fans since the early 1990s. Let’s not forget that Enrique’s good looks and singing talent were passed down to him by his father Julio, who was a famous singer himself.
If you’ve been wondering what happened to the Latin singer, we can tell you Enrique is making a comeback, with all-new songs to serenade us with. We’re just happy that he’s back and didn’t have to file for bankruptcy over his inactive years.
Beloved actor Robin Williams was known for his unique personality, and we’re thinking that could be the reason why he named his daughter after a video game character. The father and daughter duo could pass as twins thanks to their uncanny resemblance. Look at those charming eyes and sweet smiles.
Having inherited the acting gene from his father, Zelda made her movie debut at age five. She is now an established actress and has appeared in a number of films and television series. She’s also an avid athlete who has participated in several arts and sport-related college programs. Robin’s untimely death in 2014 left an emptiness in her life, but her dad did at least set her up for success in life.
Born in 2017, Alexander and Ella, twin boy and girl, are now 5 years old. With amazing parents, they both came out beautiful and smart. In every interview, George says it more than one time that his wife Amal gave them their brains. Now, at 5 years old, they already know three languages. As he said in a recent interview, he is still struggling with English.
As the parents try very hard to hide their kids from the press, the press has turned to other ideas. The image on the left has been created by a state-of-the-art AI computer and is said by close friends and relatives to look exactly like the twins. Don't be surprised if this is the next thing in celebrity imagery.
Hollywood icon John Travolta has certainly won hearts with his performances over the years. The Pulp Fiction star won several awards throughout his acting career, including an IIFA Award and a Golden Globe. He has a huge fan base and his successful acting career also earned him a massive fortune. Travolta also passed down his good looks to his lovely daughter, Ella Beau Travolta.
Ella is a certified star in the making. She made her acting debut with the 2009 movie Old Dogs. She also appeared in the 2019 thriller, The Poison Rose. We’re sure her superstar father has been guiding and supporting her to become a successful actor at her own pace.
With a golden five-decade career in show business, Jack Nicholson has truly enjoyed his time as an actor. He’s known for taking on demanding roles in films like Terms of Endearment, Batman, A Few Good Men, and The Departed, among many others. Nicholson is considered an institution in his own right and an inspiration to the film industry at large.
The six-time Golden Globe Award winner shares striking features with his grandson, Duke who never turned to nepotism to find his niche in the industry as an actor. You might recognize the 20-year-old from the 2019 horror flick Us.
Despite his messy personal life, comic star Jim Carrey has been a wonderful father to his only child Jane Carrey. Born in 1987 following Jim’s whirlwind romance with actress and waitress Melissa Womer, Jane learned a lot in the school of hard knocks throughout her childhood.
Jane, who has her father’s charming smile, could have lived a lavish life thanks to Jim’s enviable net worth, but she wanted to make a name for herself. In her pursuit of a career in music, she auditioned for American Idol but got eliminated early on. Even so, we hope she achieves her dreams.
Donald Sutherland’s most recent creative achievement was his portrayal of the tyrannical President Snow in The Hunger Games. Prior to this, Donald enjoyed a long and prosperous acting career that has been going strong since the 1960s. His son Kiefer Sutherland inherited all his looks, and his talent to boot. Keifer followed in his father’s footsteps and is perhaps most famous for playing the lead actor in the TV series 24.
Truly a great actor, his performance as the evil Robert Doob in Eye for an Eye also received rave reviews. The Sutherlands are certainly one of Hollywood’s most successful families. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, right?
Alexandria "Lexi" Zahra Jones is the love child of Bowie and Somali-American model Iman. She was born in the year 2000. That year, Bowie and Iman gave an interview to Hello! magazine and promised that it would be Lexi's first and last interview. They kept their promise.
In this picture, Lexi and her dad are at the same age of 22. Lexi had a crescent moon tattoo done, with the words "Daddy xx" and "1947-2016". Lexi is an artist now (We wonder why). She paints, writes poetry, and a strong feminist.
Who could ever forget the iconic band Nirvana, or the man who founded it and made it so famous? Kurt Cobain, the lead singer, and guitarist of the band battled with depression and substance abuse. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Kurt’s constant struggles left him weak and eventually resulted in him taking his own life. Kurt and his musician wife Courtney Love had a daughter together, the beautiful Frances Bean Cobain.
Unfortunately, Frances also struggled with substance abuse issues. We’re not sure whether Kurt had a life insurance policy, or if he left Courtney and Frances with anything after his death. Either way, we hope Kurt’s daughter, who exactly looks like him, will live a successful life.
The name Maya Thurman-Hawke is a clear giveaway as to where this girl got her looks. As the daughter of multitalented parents Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, the young woman seems destined for celebrity status. Indeed, to prove this point, she started modeling at an early age. Maya made her screen debut with the mini-series Little Women and won hearts for her feisty character in season two of Netflix’s wildly popular Stranger Things (fans will be excited to learn that Maya will be back for season three).
One of the most admirable things about Maya is the fact that she chose to pursue her college education despite battling dyslexia. She only dropped out when it became impossible to juggle her study with her acting projects. Nevertheless, we’re certain Maya will create a name for herself in the industry without having to rely on her parents’ assets.
Simone Alexandra Johnson is the female version of her famous dad, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The teen has accompanied her father on several red carpet occasions but hasn’t taken an interest in acting. Simone has kept a low profile as she’s more interested in doing well in her studies and graduating from college.
Though her parents are divorced, they make sure to spend plenty of time with her. Today, the young lady hasn’t decided on a career yet, but when she does, she’ll have nothing to worry about as she has supportive and successful parents to rely on.
Sam Elliott is best known for playing ranchers and cowboys in movies; roles he won thanks to his deep voice, scrawny demeanor, and signature mustache. His impressive film appearances include Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, We Were Soldiers, and A Star Is Born. In 1984, he married actress Katherine Ross and they welcomed their lovely daughter Cleo Rose Elliott in the same year.
Sadly, Cleo and her mother, Katherine, do not get along - and that's putting it nicely. Cleo tried to kill her mother by stabbing her with a pair of scissors. Katherine has since gotten a restraining order against Cleo, and she has been removed from their family home and ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from her mother. “Cleo verbally and emotionally abused me even as a little girl but became increasingly violent at age 12 or 13,” Katherine said to give an insight into Cleo's disturbing mental state.
Rainey Qualley is like a mini-me of her mom, Andie MacDowell. She seems to have inherited as much talent as beauty from her famous mom. However, Rainey chose to step away from films and has been focusing on growing her musical career.
Although she did do a bit of acting when she was younger, Rainey and her siblings were raised away from the madness of Hollywood, so she was able to naturally discover that she prefers music over movies any day. Still, having successful celebrity parents means worrying over college admissions and job hunting won’t be an issue for Rainey. She is currently traveling between cities while recording a solo album.
In 2007, Salma Hayek and French businessman François-Henri Pinault, welcomed their baby girl, Valentina, to the world. And when they got married in 2009, little Valentina was their flower girl. How cute!
She shared about her experience of being a mother and what it has been like for her in a 2008 interview with People En Espanol, "I only have one daughter and that has been … the most incredible experience I have had in my life and I have done a lot," she said. "I am sure that there are plenty of women that say 'God, what a marvelous life, she can do this or that.' But, there is nothing that I have done that is more incredible than to have a child."
O’Shea Jackson Sr is best known by his stage name – Ice Cube. He is a renowned rapper, producer, and singer, and one of the founding artists of gangsta rap. Ice Cube was responsible for penning some pretty controversial lyrics as well as pushing the envelope with hard-hitting visual imagery in music videos.
Ice Cube and his wife Kimberly Woodruff have four children. Their eldest child, O’Shea Jackson Jr, looks like his father the most. Just like his father, O’Shea pursued a career in music and acting, and he’s now doing well in show business. Interestingly, O’Shea Jr’s debut in acting came when he played his father in the biopic Straight Outta Compton.
Robert Redford is the founder of the popular Sundance Film Festival. A notable producer, director, businessman, and actor, he debuted with the 1962 movie War Hunt. Redford also appeared in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Inside Daisy Clover, All the President’s Men, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Endgame, among others.

Her notable appearances are in films like Maid in Manhattan and Sunshine Cleaning, as well as television shows like The Sopranos.
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson are an iconic mother-daughter duo in the entertainment industry. Hawn is an iconic Hollywood actress and Hudson has made a name for herself through her many accolades and starring roles.
What you might not know about Kate Hudson though is that her stepfather, Kurt Russell, is who she recognizes as her true father. Bill Hudson, her biological father, is completely estranged and she feels no loyalty toward him. For fathers day, Goldie Hawn posted a picture of Russell on Instagram with the caption: “How can I explain the gratitude and love I feel for the greatest father who has given us all so much in this life.” Hudson also shared a throwback of her and Russell writing, “Fun, adventurous, passionate, determined, honest, devoted, amazing father and the best head of hair in Los Angeles! Lucky us! Love you, Pa! Happy Father’s Day.”
The 20-year-old daughter of Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw has grown up into a fine young and talented woman. One of her older sisters has been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and her whole family is going through some tough times, so Audrey decided to be supportive.
In a rare social media post she supported her father after a big sow in Texas. Something she never does. Social media is not her forte', but she wants to strengthen the family ties. You can see here in the picture how she looks like her mom Faith, when she was around her 20s'.
It’s in the DNA! The Beatles’ legendary singer and songwriter Paul McCartney has four children with his late wife, Linda and one of them is the prominent fashion designer, Stella McCartney. Interestingly, Stella’s nephew Arthur Donald looks exactly like his grandfather Paul when he was the same age.
Donald, who left England to pursue a degree at Yale, has been rumored to be dating Ava Phillippe, the lovely daughter of Reese Witherspoon. Love life aside, we can assume that this young man will make a name for himself in no time. With his family’s massive net worth, studies at an ivy league university, and a beautiful girlfriend, Donald is one lucky guy.
When rock legend Lenny Kravitz was young, he was easily identifiable because of his eccentric style that consisted of dreadlocks, leather jackets, and psychedelic sunglasses. Lenny was his own brand, with his unique style creating the perfect platform for his musical talent. His daughter Zoë may have taken after her mother Lisa Bonet in the looks department, but she still bears an eye-catching resemblance to her father.
Young Zoë’s tandem acting and modeling careers have been going great, thanks to the strong genes she got from her equally talented parents. Zoë Kravitz is one lucky lady who will never have to worry about making a savings plan.
When you’re the child of a famous couple like Jillie Mack and Tom Selleck, you’re expected to follow in your parents’ footsteps. However, in the case of Hannah Margaret Selleck, she chose not to take after her parents, instead of devoting her time and attention to horse riding. When she was young, her family moved to a ranch outside of Los Angeles because her protective parents wanted her to grow up far from the noisy and glamorous world of Hollywood. It seems their tactic paid off.
When she finished high school. Hannah went on to study at Marymount University, majoring in communication. She plans to build a career breeding horses and attending shows, so we probably won’t see her on the big screen any time soon.
Another A-list celebrity who doesn’t need any introduction is Angelina Jolie. The award-winning actress is the daughter of talented couple Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, and the Maleficent actress inherited her acting talent from both of them. Her mother was a model and humanitarian worker who also made several on-screen appearances.
Though she wasn’t as successful an actress as her daughter, Bertrand continued to head up numerous charitable foundations and retirement homes. Unfortunately, she died in 2007 after suffering from ovarian cancer for a long period. Angelina continues to support her mother’s charity programs and has made significant donations of time and money to many causes.
Does Tom Hanks see a mirror image when he looks at his son? The answer is a resounding yes. Check out the uncanny resemblance between the father and son pictured below. While Tom enjoyed a career that’s spanned five decades (and counting), Colin is yet to receive the same kind of success.
Though he seems a tad shaky on his feet, he’s appeared in a couple of films and television shows. We understand that making a name for yourself in any career is tough, so we wish Colin Hanks all the best in carving out his success. Considering who his father is, we’re pretty sure he has a powerful coach helping him out!
Mike Tyson is one of the most prominent boxers in history. Once a professional heavyweight champion, he enjoyed a great career, but had a varied past with plenty of controversies to balance out the amazing moments. Mike’s professional and personal life was scarred by several squabbles. He was even convicted for physically assaulting an 18-year-old woman, despite his lawyer’s best attempts to clear his name.
Mike had a surprising comeback after he came out of jail, but he soon found himself facing bankruptcy. Today, he has been spotted training with his 15-year-old son Miguel Leon Tyson. His son may be young, but he already knows how to deliver a strong punch, just like his famous dad.
Being the child of a celebrity is not all sunshine and roses. Take Cameron Douglas for example. The son of Diandra Morell and Michael Douglas, Cameron is a mirror image of his father, and he seemed to have a flourishing career in show business ahead of him, until his arrest in 2010.
From that moment, things fell apart for Cameron who was caught several times for possession of illegal drugs. He even spent seven years in jail. Post-release, Cameron appears to be taking things slow. We hope he’s able to turn things around.
Have you ever wondered how it feels to have celebrity parents? Having David and Victoria Beckham as your parents would certainly be surreal. A renowned football player and a pop icon known all over the world – you’d feel privileged indeed! Their eldest son Brooklyn Beckham clearly inherited their striking looks. Though everyone expected him to be a footballer like his father, 18-year old Brooklyn surprised us all by enrolling in a photography course in New York.
Looking at his portfolio, Brooklyn is already a budding talent, so it seems he made the right choice. We hope he’ll make it big as an artist who’s recognized for more than just his famous parents.
Did you know that talented actress Dominik Cristina Garcia-Lorida is the eldest daughter of veteran actor Andy Garcia? From good looks to acting prowess, she clearly inherited a lot from her father. Dominik was destined for celebrity life since she was young. She made her Hollywood debut during the 90s, but it wasn’t until 2005 and the release of The Lost City that she became recognized for her acting skills.
From that time on, Dominik was able to be picky with her roles. Her impressive performance in the television series Magic City sent her reputation soaring even higher. We’re sure this talented young woman won’t have to borrow money from her father any time soon!
With super couple Beyonce and Jay Z as her parents, Blue Ivy was famous the moment she was born. Needless to say, the little tyke already takes after her talented parents. She was the ultimate mini-me of her mother when she was younger, and these days she’s also developing features reminiscent of her father’s. Blue Ivy’s fame is so significant that Beyonce even tried to trademark her name, but it didn’t work out.
This adorable little girl apparently loves to belt out a tune and has even added her singing skills to one of Beyonce’s singles. We’re looking forward to watching Blue Ivy perform on the big stage in the future.
We’ve mentioned this before and we’re going to say it again: being the child of a power couple is the easiest way to ensure you get to be famous too. This was certainly the case for 50 Shades star Dakota Johnson. Though she created headlines with her daring film choice, Dakota’s parents (Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) were once headline grabbers themselves.
While Dakota once looked exactly like young Melanie, the resemblance is less obvious now. Since she’s chosen acting as her career, we hope Dakota goes a long way in the industry; after all, she has what it takes to be a big star in Hollywood – beauty, charisma, and talent.
Another super-couple with lovely offspring is socialite and journalist Maria Shriver and beloved action star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Their eldest child Katherine Schwarzenegger has a degree in communications and is a successful writer. Though it must have been difficult for her and her siblings when their parents sought a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage, they seem to have moved on just fine.
With a lifetime full of interesting stories, Katherine’s books are selling well. However, she inherited more than just her writing skills from her mother – the two look just alike! Actor Chris Pratt fell for Katherine’s good looks, intelligence, and kind heart. The two were married in 2019.
For decades, actor Jude Law has been making the ladies swoon. Now it's his twenty-three-year-old son Rafferty’s turn to steal hearts. The younger version of Jude definitely got his charm and good looks from his father. With Sadie Frost as his mom, he was destined to come into this world with celebrity DNA.
In fact, this young man has already been able to establish his own band. He is a promising model and has worked on campaigns with elite brands like DKNY and Dolce & Gabbana, among others. At his age, it’s amazing that he’s making such solid career moves. Let’s wait and see what the future holds for Rafferty. We’re hoping he’ll make it big, just like his father.
Born in 1971, Stella McCartney is the youngest daughter of the rock legend Paul McCartney and his wife, Linda McCartney. Although Linda died in 1998 due to breast cancer, Stella had the opportunity to grow up with her parents by her side. Today, Stella McCartney is an established fashion designer.
She began working on her haute couture collection during her teenage years, and now she owns a few fashion lines for women, men, and babies. The talented designer has collaborated with some interesting brands, including Adidas and Disney. Let’s not forget that Stella and Linda could pass as twins. What do you think?
Jacqueline Lee Kennedy Onassis doesn't need an introduction. The former First Lady was with her husband, John F Kennedy when he was gunned down in 1963. Women at the time were already inspired by her style and elegance, and they looked up to her even more for the graceful way she handled the tragedy.
A few years after JFK’s death, Jacqueline got married again to Aristotle Onassis, but their union ended in divorce. JF and Jackie’s oldest grandchild is Rose. Born in 1988, she did not take any interest in politics, unlike her grandfather and other members of the Kennedy family. Rose is an actress who co-launched the web comedy series End Times Girls Club.
