Most celebrities, both young and old, have made their way to the top because they sacrificed their blood, sweat, and tears to get what they want. Perseverance, work ethic, and passion for their craft are just some of the common answers Hollywood stars give you when asked what is needed to gain fame and be successful. However, did you ever consider that maybe genetics might also play a role in getting famous?

People forget that some of the people they idolize already comes from a line of wealthy and well-known parents. The reason for forgetting could be that the son or daughter has outshone their parents’ reputation or it could simply be because you’re a millennial or a zoomer who are too young to know their parents.

You’ve probably heard of the phrase “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” and that’s exactly what’s happening on this list. Here are some celebrities who probably didn’t need to worry about their student loans since one or both of their parents were famous.
