“It’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know.” Possibly the truest of all cliché expressions in the English language, especially in Hollywood. That’s not to say that talent, skill, and creativity, aren’t necessary traits needed to make it in the industry, because they are. But, for the lucky few who possess those qualities, having a middleman to do a little schmoozing on their behalf, never hurts.

Oh- and for the small fraction who are actually born into the business, well, that’s just like “having your cake, and eating it too.” (What can I say, expressions are my thing.)

Believe it or not, some of today’s biggest and brightest talents were, quite literally, bred from the stars of Hollywood. So its comes to no surprise that they chose careers in line with the family business. After all, “birds of a feather, flock together.” (That was the last one, I promise.)

Click through the gallery to see the famous celebrity offspring, such as those of Drew Barrymore, Alexander Skarsgard, Gwyneth Paltrow, we came come up with. Can you think of any others?
