The saying “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” often proves true, and the celebrities featured in this article all have children who followed in their footsteps and became famous.
The kids are achieving great results, just like their parents did when they were the same age. And here is a compilation of side-by-side photos of celebrities and their kids as peers.
Demi Moore and daughter Rumer Willis had different looks at 29 years old, but there is still a resemblance. Moore welcomed Rumer Willis, her first daughter with ex-husband Bruce Willis, in August 1988.
Like her parents, Rumer is also an actress and has appeared on “90210” and “Empire.” She also competed on Fox’s hit competition show “The Masked Singer.” Her career is steadily developing, just like her mother’s.
It’s almost unbelievable that Clint Eastwood’s career has spanned more than six decades. He used his experience in his acting career to transition into an adept and award-winning director and producer in his later years.
It’s very likely that Clint Eastwood’s spitting-image son, Scott, hopes to reach that same level of fame and longevity that his dad achieved. Who wouldn’t?
On the left is actress Melanie Griffith 29 years old. On the right is her daughter, Dakota Johnson, at the same age. The hairstyle is quite different, yet the facial features are very similar.
Griffith welcomed Dakota Johnson, best known for her role as Anastasia Steele in the “50 Shades of Grey” movies, with ex-husband Don Johnson in October 1989. Like her mother, Dakota Johnson is working hard on a prolific acting career.
James Brolin and his son, Josh Brolin, have similar facial features. It doesn’t take long to notice that. Here they are at the age of 48 years old.
Josh is the son of James and Jane Cameron Agee. After James married Barbara Streisand in 1998, the legendary singer became his stepmother. He grew up in a happy family, and he eventually launched his career in acting, following in his father’s footsteps.
In these photos, there are Carrie Fisher and her daughter, Billie Lourd, at 23 years old. Like her late mother, Lourd is also an actress.
She previously starred in “American Horror Story” and most recently appeared in “Booksmart.” She didn’t achieve what her mother did yet, but she surely is on her way to a prolific career.
Dennis Quaid and his son, Jack Quaid, had different hairstyles around age 27. But they were both handsome nonetheless.
Dennis played Nick Parker in the 1998 remake of “The Parent Trap,” and his son stars in the acclaimed Amazon superhero show “The Boys.” They both have great acting careers, and his son is just at the beginning of the road.
Iconic singer Diana Ross and her daughter, actress Tracee Ellis Ross, rocked contrasting looks at age 45. They still look quite alike. Diana welcomed her child with her ex-husband Robert Ellis Silberstein in October 1972.
Tracee is well known for her Golden Globe-winning role as Dr. Rainbow Johnson on ABC’s hit comedy “Black-ish.”
In these photos, there are the actresses Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz at 19 years old. Bonet welcomed her daughter with singer Lenny Kravitz in December 1988.
Zoë starred as Bonnie Carlson on HBO’s “Big Little Lies.” She also played Catwoman in the latest Batman movie, skyrocketing her acting career.
From these photos, you can clearly see that Tom Hanks and his son, Colin Hanks, look pretty much alike at 40 years old.
Tom is famous for voicing Woody in the “Toy Story” movies and his Oscar-winning performance in “Forrest Gump.” Colin has starred in several TV shows, including the original “Roswell,” “The Good Guys,” “Fargo,” and “Life in Pieces.” He’s definitely following in his father’s footsteps.
Maybe not everyone knows, but famed actor Kirk Douglas was around for a long time, and we all adore the iconic Michael Douglas.
After Kirk’s passing in February of 2020, we can’t help but compare the looks of the two acting heavyweights at the same age late in their careers. They look alike, and they both had great acting careers spanning decades.
It may be difficult to believe that it’s been nearly 30 years since Reese Witherspoon first began her film and TV acting career. That’s probably because the star just doesn’t seem to age.
Reese Witherspoon’s first child, Ava Phillippe, is hoping for some of those age-defying genes for herself as well. Ava Phillippe has begun her own modeling career, and maybe one day, she will make her way to the big screen. One can only hope.
International soccer superstar David Beckham wowed fans for years with his play on the pitch. Since his retirement from soccer, his good looks have allowed him to transition into modeling and become a spokesperson.
David Beckham’s son, Brooklyn, is thrilled that he’s taking after his famous father in the looks department. Who wouldn’t?
Blythe Danner was a massive star in the 1970s and ’80s. Her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow burst onto the scene in the late ’90s, thanks mainly to her acclaimed, Academy Award-winning role in Shakespeare in Love.
Both mother and daughter are still actively working in film and TV, and hopefully, they’ll both be active for many years to come.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the Sutherland tree when it comes to acting talent. Donald Sutherland has gathered acting awards since the 1970s, and his son, Kiefer, followed diligently in his steps.
The younger Sutherland took a little longer to become an established star. Still, his role in the action drama 24 resulted in six straight Golden Globe nominations for best actor.
