Being born into a famous family doesn’t guarantee you anything, but it sure gives you better chances of becoming famous yourself. In Hollywood it’s all about who you know, date, befriend, and who is your family. You may not know it, but most of the famous people you see today are relatives of other celebrities and stars. It’s just easier for them to become successful! That being said, having a good background is clearly not enough to become a superstar. These people have worked hard to build their careers, there’s no denying the fact. Here are 11 celeb children who grew up to be more famous than their parents.
Chris Pine (Robert Pine)
Robert Pine was a big star back in the days of Magnum P. I., Lost in Space, and Knight Rider, but the modern generation knows more about his son, Chris Pine, who has become a real icon over the last few years. This happened mainly after he took the role of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek franchise, but he’s also known for his roles in Wonder Woman, Hell or High Water, and more.
Benedict Cumberbatch (Wanda Ventham, Timothy Carlton)
Benedict Cumberbatch was born into a family of actors, so no wonder he followed in his parents’ footsteps! His dad appeared in The Scarlet Pimpernel and Keeping Up Appearances, while his mother starred in a number of TV shows. Nevertheless, it was their son who got to build a truly breathtaking acting career, depicting a plethora of characters from Sherlock Holmes, to Alan Turing, and Smaug the Dragon from The Hobbit trilogy.
Zoë Kravitz (Lenny Kravitz, Lisa Bonet)
Lisa Bonet is undoubtedly quite a big star herself, but her daughter, Zoe Kravitz, has recently outshone both of her parents. She starred in blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and the Divergent series, as well as Mad Max: Fury Road, and her recent role in Pretty Little Liars has brought her immense recognition.
Kim Kardashian (Kris Jenner)
No one really knew about Kris Jenner until Kim Kardashian started building her very own socialite career. Whether we like it or not, Kim Kardashian has made a name for herself and is a power to be reckoned with when it comes to modern-day influencers and celeb icons.
