When it comes to gorgeous celebrity siblings, famous sisters such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Zooey and Emily Deschanel immediately spring to mind. However, there are just as many glamorous stars whose good-looking relatives choose to avoid the limelight. And with their movie star looks, these lesser-known showbiz family members could be celebrities in their own rights.
20. Scarlett Johansson’s twin brother, Hunter
Scarlett Johansson proves the theory that twins are inseparable by often rocking up to red carpet events with her hunky twin brother Hunter on her arm. After a brief foray into acting, Hunter now works in political fundraising and contributed to Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign.
19. Penélope Cruz’s sister, Monica
Three years younger than her sister Penélope, Monica Cruz shares both her sibling’s striking good looks and her passion for acting. And, due to their physical similarities, Monica has also served as Penélope’s body double on occasion: most notably, to cover up the latter’s pregnancy while she was filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
18. Taylor Swift’s brother, Austin
Proving that everybody could do with a sibling to watch their back, Taylor Swift’s brother Austin is always looking out for his older sister. Case in point: following Kanye West’s controversial name check of Taylor in “Famous,” recent Notre Dame graduate Austin hit back by uploading a video to Instagram of him seemingly throwing away a pair of $200 Yeezy-brand sneakers. Now that’s what we call brotherly love.
17. Emma Watson’s brother, Alex
While Emma Watson may be noted as one of the most beautiful individuals on the planet, her younger brother Alex certainly gives her a run for her money. Currently working as a model, Alex has posed for Burberry and Silhouette – though his main ambition is to break into broadcast journalism.
16. Alexander Skarsgård’s sister, Eija
Raised in a showbiz household that includes actor father Stellan and True Blood star older brother Alexander, Eija Skarsgård seemed destined to share a slice of their spotlight. However, the Swedish beauty apparently prefers a simpler life; following a brief stint as a model, she now works as a nightclub manager in Stockholm.
15. Blake Lively’s brother, Eric
Blake Lively might never had entered into acting if it wasn’t for her older brother Eric. In fact, it was Eric who convinced his younger sister to ditch education and head for Hollywood when she was just 15. Most recognizable for a recurring role on The L Word, Eric is still acting to this day and has also dabbled in photography and modeling.
14. Robert Pattinson’s sisters, Victoria and Lizzy
Robert Pattinson has not one, but two gorgeous siblings in the form of older sisters Victoria and Lizzy. The eldest, Victoria, currently works as a business development manager for PR company WPP, while the less-camera shy Lizzy is a singer who even competed on the UK version of The X Factor in 2014.
13. Sofía Vergara’s sister, Sandra
Though born as cousins, Sofía and Sandra Vergara became sisters following the latter’s adoption. Sofia subsequently helped her little sister on her quest for success, inviting Sandra – now a successful model and TV personality in her own right – to live with her when she moved to Los Angeles.
12. Jessica Alba’s brother, Joshua
Some siblings have a bond that not even Hollywood can break, and that’s certainly the case for Jessica Alba and her younger brother Joshua. Being the class act that she is, Jessica even pulled some strings to land Joshua his first acting role on her show Dark Angel.
11. Zac Efron’s brother, Dylan
While Zac Efron is undoubtedly one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood, his brother Dylan – a producer’s assistant – has the potential to steal his fan base. Certainly his older sibling seems to think so, with Zac admitting to Seth Meyers in 2015 that Dylan is even “way cooler than [him].”
10. Kaley Cuoco’s sister, Briana
Aside from their drastically different hair color, Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is almost indistinguishable from her younger sister Briana. And as well as their striking resemblance, the two also share a love of The Bachelor. Indeed, singer Briana – known for appearing on The Voice – has admitted that they will spend hours together binge watching the show.
9. Harry Styles’ sister, Gemma
Gemma Styles took the social media world by storm after her younger brother Harry – of One Direction fame – shared a snap from her graduation on Instagram. But though the two are close – with Harry even sporting a tattoo of her nickname on his arm – Gemma has no plans to become a pop star herself. Instead, she is pursuing a career as a freelance beauty writer.
8. Sienna Miller’s sister, Savannah
Considering the angelic looks of Sienna Miller’s older sister Savannah, it’s only natural that she has forged a career in the fashion world. The blonde beauty got her big break alongside her sibling with the jointly created Twenty8Twelve label, before venturing out on her own in 2012 with her own label Savannah.
7. Vanessa Hudgens’ sister, Stella
Seven years younger than her sister Vanessa, Stella Hudgens is already making waves in the acting world thanks to roles in the likes of Mr. Hollywood. And despite the age gap the two are incredibly close, with Stella even attending the 2015 VMAs as Vanessa’s date.
6. Kate Hudson’s brother, Oliver
Coming from a celebrity family that includes mom Goldie Hawn and stepdad Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson has scores of relatives who compete with her Hollywood good looks. Most notably, her older brother Oliver shares her stunning features – as well as her thirst for acting, having made a name for himself in shows like Rules of Engagement and Nashville.
5. Lady Gaga’s sister, Natali
Lady Gaga’s appearance changes from one day to the next, but despite her predilection for outlandish outfits it’s still easy to spot the similarity between her and her little sister Natali Germanotta. A former fashion student, Natali has a close bond with her lookalike sibling and was tipped to be Gaga’s bridesmaid for her wedding to Taylor Kinney – that is, before the engagement was called off, of course.
4. Owen and Luke Wilson’s brother, Andrew
Good things often come in threes: fittingly, then, the hunky Wilson household doesn’t just stop with brothers Owen and Luke. Indeed, their dashing older brother Andrew is also an actor, who can be seen appearing with his siblings in the likes of Zoolander and The Royal Tenenbaums.
3. Ryan Gosling’s sister, Mandi
Those able to drag their eyes away from Ryan Gosling’s perfect face at red carpet events may have noticed his sister Mandi accompanying him as his date on occasion. The star’s sibling – a journalist who has previously worked for DreamWorks and Harpers Bazaar – has joined Ryan at many a showbiz night, and she’s just as cute as her younger brother.
2. James Franco’s brother, Dave
While many younger siblings have to endure living in their older relative’s shadow, Dave Franco is forging a career that may someday rival that of his brother James. Following supporting roles in the likes of Superbad, Dave quickly established himself as a promising screen star – and 2016’s Nerve looks set to showcase his potential as a lead actor.
1. Bella Thorne’s sister, Dani
Though her younger sister Bella’s roles in Blended and The Duff made her famous at a young age, Dani Thorne has actually been in the spotlight a lot longer. Having modeled since before she was even four years old, the ravishing beauty has since been seen in campaigns for both Gap and H&M.
