20 Most Famous Showbiz Families


Sometimes it can seem that the world of showbiz and Hollywood especially, is a closed universe you need to know someone to get into. And it has been this way since the early days, with family ties, friendships and other connections making it so much easier for talent (even mediocre talent) to get crucial early exposure.

And over the years, we have seen a whole bunch of acting, singing, celebrity families who have spread through the world of showbiz like multi-tentacled beasts. For our list, we will make it a general rule that the said families need to have at least three famous and successful members, meaning no father-son duos or husband-wife celeb couples.

1. The Kardashian-Jenner Conglomerate

You can think whatever you want about the whole Kardashian-Jenner celebrity behemoth, but one thing is for sure – they have taken the whole celeb family thing to its extremes and they do it so very well. Especially when you consider that the last member of the family that actually accomplished something of note was Bruce Jenner back in the 1970s and 1980s.

His wife and the matriarch of the family – Kris Jenner is most famous for being his wife and ex-wife of O.J. Simpson’s lawyer Robert Kardashian. Kim Kardashian, the most famous of the whole family rose to fame as socialite/sex tape star/party girl who recently married Kanye West.

The rest of the family – Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, together with Kylie and Kendall Jenner have pretty much ridden Kim’s coattails and actually managed to become celebrities in their own right, together with their celeb lovers and relationships.

Still, they are a powerhouse all on their own and a phenomenal one.
