15 Celebrities You Never Knew Had Famous Parents


They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and, in this case, they were absolutely right.

Then again, that doesn’t necessarily mean that these very celebrities owe all of their achievements to the fame of their celebrity parents.

To cut a long story short, these are 21 stars who come from famous families:

1. Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson, the star of movies such as Fool’s Gold, The Skeleton Key and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, has been destined for great things since she was born.

Her mother Goldie Hawn made sure of that, as well as her step-dad actor Kurt Russell, who helped Goldie raise Kate and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson.

Kate’s father, William Louis “Bill” Hudson is an American singer and actor, best known as one of the members of The Hudson Brothers. He married the Academy Award winning actress in 1976, following her divorce from Gus Trikonis.

Hudson once said that her genetic dad “doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall,” and that she sees Russell as her father. On the other hand, Kate has called her mother “the woman that I’ve learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to.”
