Seeing Double? Hollywood’s Golden Age Actors and Their Grandchildren

For some people, talent is in their DNA. It’s not uncommon for celebrities to have other stars in their families; we just don’t realize it most of the time. Some people were born to be in showbiz. For them, entertainment is just part of the family business, and it comes naturally to them. You would be surprised to find out that some of your favorite actors from this generation are descendants of huge stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Celebrities don’t normally proclaim who their famous grandparents are, mostly because they want to make it on their own. And also because they don’t want people to look at them differently. If you tell someone your grandfather is Clark Gable or that your grandma is Elizabeth Taylor, people may automatically assume you got everything (including your career) handed to you on a silver platter.

Without further ado, these are the grandchildren of some Hollywood Giants, proving that talent runs in their blood.
