12 celebrities’ siblings you didn’t know existed
When you look at their photos, you are left with the strong impression that they look more or less like certain famous people you’ve seen elsewhere. That’s probably because they are in fact the not-so-famous siblings of celebrities! They may be less popular and have less fans (and haters), but this fact doesn’t make them less awesome.
Just look at these guys: some of them are very hard to tell apart from their more famous relation, whilst others seem to share nothing in common with them. Regardless, it’s always good to have a loving brother or a sister, don’t you think?
