18 Comparisons of Related Celebrities That Prove Genes Are a Strong Thing

A person’s appearance is defined by genes, and since each of us inherits them from our parents, we tend to look like our mothers and fathers, and our siblings, in turn, resemble us too. Moreover, sometimes kids don’t only look alike, but they also choose the same profession, like becoming an actor, for example.

Bright Side looked closely at celebrity siblings, and the resemblances between some of them were simply astounding.
