They say that nature rests on children: indeed, it often happens that unremarkable, most ordinary children grow up with talented and bright personalities. However, it also happens the other way around, when the offspring of celebrities surpass the achievements of their parents. Let’s remember the star children who were able to outshine their parents!
Angelina Jolie, an actress and sex symbol of an entire era, was born into a family of stellar parents: actress Marcheline Bertrand and actor Jon Voight. However, her daughter, of course, managed to surpass them: today, Angelina has not only many high-profile roles on her account, but also the Oscar, Saturn, three Golden Globe awards, as well as many achievements in the humanitarian field.
Blake Lively’s parents, like their famous daughter, are actors, but we will not see outstanding works in their track record. What can not be said about the star blonde: her career has successfully started with one of the main roles in the TV series “Gossip Girl”, and today she has such works as “Age of Adaline” and “High Life” in her piggy bank.
Actress Jennifer Aniston continued (and very successfully) the work of her father – Greek-born actor John Aniston. She managed to become one of the most popular actresses of our time and won such prestigious awards as the Golden Globe and Emmy. In addition, she has repeatedly been included in the lists of the most beautiful women in the world according to various magazines.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s parents were very famous people in Hollywood: her father proved himself as a filmmaker, and her mother achieved considerable heights as an actress. However, Gwyneth was able to surpass her stellar parents: starting her career back in the 90s, she truly became famous after the release of the film “Shakespeare in Love” for her role in which she received an Oscar.
Actress Melanie Griffith, whose peak of fame came in the 90s, was best remembered by the audience thanks to the film adaptation of the novel “Lolita”, where she played the role of the main character’s mother. The daughter of the actress Dakota Johnson followed in the footsteps of the star mother. Her star lit up with the release of the scandalous picture “50 Shades of Gray”. Both mother and daughter can boast of the Golden Globe in their piggy bank, however, in the number of outstanding roles, Dakota still surpassed her mother.
The son of comedians Ben Stiller chose to follow in the footsteps of his parents and made a very successful career in Hollywood: his iconic film “Meet the Parents” was released back in 2000 and since then the actor has not disappeared from the screens.
Robert Downey Jr.
Actor Robert Downey Jr. became famous back in the 90s and since then his career has only gone up: Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes, The Avengers. Today the actor has two Golden Globes and more than seventy roles. Unfortunately, his father, also an actor, cannot boast of such success.
Today Zoe Kravitz is one of the most promising young stars: roles in the films “Divergent”, “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “After our era” brought her wild popularity. And by the way, the girl’s parents are also stars: her father is the famous musician Lenny Kravitz, and her mother is actress Lisa Bonet. But the last Zoey has clearly surpassed.
Not everyone knows that one of the most famous singers of our time, Miley Cyrus, was herself born into a star family: her mother, Tish Cyrus, is an actress, and her father is a country singer. Unsurprisingly, Miley decided to become a singer and actress. And it should be noted that she managed to achieve even greater success than her parents, because she can be safely called the idol of a whole generation.
Gigi and Bella Hadid
Everyone who is at least a little familiar with the world of fashion and show business has heard about the Hadid sisters, who have already become style icons and one of the most famous models of our time. Not a single fashion show is complete without girls; they regularly appear on the lists of the most demanded and highly paid models. But their star mother Yolanda Hadid could not reach such heights, although she was a famous model at one time.
