15 Celebrities Who Also Have Very Famous Children

A sure way to make it as a successful actor in Hollywood is to be born into a family of famous actors. It's no guarantee but it certainly doesn't hurt.

In fact, some of the most famous actors and celebrities first got their chance thanks to their familial connections. Have a look and check out these 15 celebrities who also have famous children.

Liv Tyler is the daughter of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler.

All it takes is one smile from Liv to realize that she and her rocker father Steven are cut from the same cloth. I still get wispy-eyed every time I see Liv in Armageddon.

Jack Quaid is the son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan.

Way before the term Hollywood power couple even existed, Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid took the '90s by storm. Jack is the spitting image of his father, as well as the star of Amazon Prime's The Boys.

Sosie Bacon is the daughter of Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon.

There is nothing sweeter than watching Sosie and her father Kevin jamming out a song together on the guitar. If Sosie ever decides that acting isn't for her, I bet she could have a pretty successful music career.

John David Washington is the son of Denzel Washington.

I may not have been able to understand what Tenet was all about but I do know that John David Washington was brilliant in it. The way he speaks is so reminiscent of his father that it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand straight up.

Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.

There have been plenty of awkward celebrity interviews and encounters over the past few decades. But without a doubt, the greatest of them all has to be Dakota's interview with Ellen DeGeneres. She absolutely slew.

Zoey Deutch is the daughter of Lea Thompson.

I espouse to almost anyone who will listen how Back to the Future is one of my all-time favorite movies. I would never advocate for a reboot but if it happens, they have to get Zoey to play Lorraine McFly.

Ben Stiller is the son of the late comedy icon Jerry Stiller.

Jerry Stiller is probably best remembered these days for playing George's father on Seinfeld. Before his passing, he and his son Ben had the opportunity to work together on Zoolander.

Nicole Richie is the daughter of Lionel Richie.

I was never a huge fan of Lionel Richie but to this day if "Endless Love" happens to come on — I immediately break out in song. Here's to hoping that Nicole and Paris Hilton give us The Simple Life reunion we've all been clamoring for.

Emilio Estevez is the son of Martin Sheen.

The Mighty Duck man might not have the same last name as his famous father, but they are most certainly related. Emilio simply chose to take his father's given surname, as opposed to his stage name.

Rashida Jones is the daughter of Quincy Jones.

Quincy Jones is responsible for some of the greatest music of all time, including Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album. Whereas his daughter Rashida is best known for her roles on The Office and Parks and Recreation.

Wyatt Russell is the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.

I will be the first to say that I had some huge reservations about casting Wyatt Russell as the "new" Captain America. After seeing his performance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, I am happy to admit that I was wrong.

Charlie Sheen is the son of Martin Sheen.

We couldn't make mention of Emilio without talking about Charlie Sheen! I for one am so happy to see Charlie taking back control of his life and finally freeing himself from the chains of drugs and addiction.

Willow Smith is the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Willow's brother Jaden should also be mentioned here as well. Both kids seem fit to follow in the footsteps of their father's musical career, as opposed to his acting.

Zoë Kravitz is the daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz.

Zoë Kravitz is someone I would die to have a beer with. When your mother is Lisa Bonet, your father is Lenny Kravitz, and your step-father is Jason Mamoa — how could you be anything but the coolest person on the planet?

Kate Hudson is the daughter of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.

If ever there was a father/daughter picture to make you instinctively go "aww" it's this one. Call me crazy, but I for one would kill to see a remake of Escape from New York starring Kate as Snake Plissken.
