8 Celeb Daughters Who Hit the Genetics Jackpot

It has often been noticed that children tend to inherit their parents’ talents. Bright Side found some families where fathers and daughters are equally famous.

8. Steven and Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler (born Rundgren) had always been drawn to her mother’s friend Steven, the lead singer of Aerosmith, but only in her teens did she find out he was her real father. The musician himself had also suspected a familial bond: father and daughter look remarkably alike.

7. John Voight and Angelina Jolie

Despite John Voight being a four-time Oscar winner, Angelina gives credit for her passion for cinema to her mother: she used to spend a lot of time with her children in movie theatres. Initially, Jolie couldn’t forgive her father for leaving the family, but now they have a common film - Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - on their record, and their relationship has recently been getting better.

6. Paul and Stella McCartney

The legendary Paul McCartney has five children, but only Stella achieved real fame. Not in music, though: she is a trend-setting fashion designer and winner of highly prestigious British Fashion Awards.

5. Don and Dakota Johnson

Dakota Johnson rose to fame after the main role in Fifty Shades of Grey. It was bound to happen: what else could have become of her with parents like Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, star of Miami Vice? But that’s not all of it: her grandmother was Alfred Hitchcock’s muse, Tippi Hedren, and her stepfather, Antonio Banderas, helped her take her first steps in the film industry.

4. Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne

Kelly’s childhood coincided with the surge of popularity of her father, famed rock star Ozzy Osbourne. Their family was so popular that a whole reality show, The Osbournes, was made about their life.

Incidentally, Kelly’s godfather is the legendary Elton John.

3. Henry and Jane Fonda

"My only major influence was my father," Jane Fonda once said. However, the early years of the renowned actress were by no means serene: her parents’ divorce and her mother’s suicide left a trace on Jane’s personality and affected her relationships with men.

2. Francis and Sophia Coppola

When Sophia was only a beginning film director, there were fears that her works would be compared to her father’s masterpieces. Naturally, it’s not easy to beat the creator of The Godfather, but Sophia’s career is in no way a failure: her famous movie Lost in Translation won two Oscars.

1. Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson

Kurt Russell is technically Kate’s stepfather, but she and her brother call him their dad and thank him for their happy childhood. "This is a man who made his family his number one priority his whole life… We felt the purity of that our whole childhood and my gratitude for his love is immeasurable," she wrote.
