11 Celebs Who Are Godparents to Another Famous Person

A friendship can be strengthened even further when our children are born, and we decide to choose godparents for them. Just like us, celebrities might decide to give this important role to their closest friends as well, who are often also part of the same industry. That’s why many famous people call another celebrity their godmother or godfather.

We at Bright Side think godchildren can develop a very strong bond with their godparents, and these pairs of famous people are there to prove it.

1. Macaulay Culkin and Paris Jackson

The Home Alone star was good friends with Michael Jackson, and so the late pop star made Macaulay godfather to all 3 of his children. Paris and Macaulay share a strong bond up to this day, and she often turns to her godfather for advice about acting as well. Recently, Paris shared a sweet tribute to Macaulay on his birthday, writing “I love you so so dearly and keep you very close to my heart. Always.”

2. Jamie Lee Curtis and Jake Gyllenhaal

Jamie Lee Curtis and Jake Gyllenhaal have a very close relationship and Jake even lived at the actress’s guesthouse in Los Angeles for a while. In an interview for Sirius XM, Jake spoke very highly of his godmother saying that “She is just one of the most generous, loving, giving people. She’s been so good to me.”

3. Elton John and Romeo and Brooklyn Beckham

Romeo and Brooklyn Beckham both have Elton John as their godfather, who is very close friends with their parents. The two families often go on vacations together, and Elton takes the role of godfather very seriously. Moreover, Brooklyn Beckham has another famous godparent too in the person of Elizabeth Hurley.

4. Joan Collins and Cara Delevingne

Joan Collins is another godparent on the list who loves to give acting advice to her protégée, even if it means shooing her away from the industry. Joan jokingly told her goddaughter Cara that she shouldn’t become an actress. But she also added that Cara should, “Just learn her lines and be as honest as possible.”

5. Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus

Not only did Dolly play the part of Miley’s godmother in Hannah Montana, the famous country singer took on the same role in real life too. Dolly’s title of honorary godmother was given to her by Miley’s father, and they’ve taken an active part in each other’s lives ever since Miley was born.

6. Jacqueline Bisset and Angelina Jolie

Jacqueline was asked to be Angelina’s godmother when she was still in her mother’s, Marcheline Bertrand’s, tummy. But over the years the two actresses have drifted apart, that is until they decided to reconnect a few years ago. And Jacqueline never stopped speaking very fondly of Angelina, saying that “I find her rather extraordinary. She’s evolved so much.”

7. Sia and Maddie Ziegler

The dancer and her famous godmother have a long history of working together on Sia’s projects and music videos, and they also have a great relationship off-screen. Before becoming her godparent, Sia reached out to Maddie on Twitter and asked her to star in one of her music videos. Nowadays, they are still working together on even bigger projects, like the 2021 movie Music.

8. Steven Spielberg and Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore

The two actresses share the famous director as their godfather. Spielberg gave both of her goddaughters roles in his movies when they were just starting out, and their relationship has been great ever since.

9. Drew Barrymore and Frances Bean Cobain

Not only does she have a famous godparent, Drew Barrymore also became a godmother in her own right when she was asked by her good friend Courtney Love to accept the role. But unfortunately the two lost touch in the past years and Drew and Frances aren’t very close either.

10. Jennifer Aniston and Coco Arquette

The Friends co-stars became good friends while filming the show, so much that Courteney Cox even chose Jennifer Aniston as her daughter Coco’s godmother. From babysitting Coco when she was younger to paying tribute to her on her birthdays, Jennifer has been very close to her goddaughter over the years.

11. Vin Diesel and Meadow Walker

Vin Diesel revealed in an interview that he thought of the late Paul Walker as his brother, even naming his youngest daughter Pauline in his honor. Like the awesome godfather that he is, the actor also stepped up for his goddaughter Meadow and even walked her down the aisle at her wedding. They continue to have a very close relationship, “She’s the first person on Father’s Day to wish me Happy Father’s Day,” Vin said about his goddaughter.
