Famous Siblings You Might Not Know
This picture is a bit old now but these girls are more famous than ever I think.
Famous Siblings You May Not Know
It seems like we’re all obsessed with famous siblings. I know I am. Not sure why exactly, but I think it’s because it’s nice to see a family connection with celebrities. They feel more real, I think. We all know about Chloe and Kim, the Olsen twins, and the Jonas brothers, but here are some famous siblings and their lesser known siblings you might not know about.
Famous Siblings and Their not so Famous Counterparts
In these sibling pairs, only one has achieved true stardom. However, many of these brothers and sisters to stars are well on their way to making their own names in entertainment and other creative industries.
Shailene and Tanner Woodley
By now, Shailene Woodley is a household name. She made her first major mark on the industry with “The Fault in Our Stars” and sealed her stardom with the “Divergent” movies. Her brother, Tanner, may not have achieved super stardom yet, but he is quite an accomplished actor, with many roles in short films as well as “Boston Legal”.
Zach, Adam, and Joshua Braff
These famous siblings are all talented and two of them have even worked together. Zach Braff made his mark in “Scrubs”, moving from the popular comedy to movies. His brother, Adam, helped him write his most recent film “Wish I Was Here”. Their other brother, Joshua is also a published author.
Nicole and Sofia Richie
This is one stylish pair of famous siblings. Nicole Richie has already made a name for herself as a style icon, and her half-sister, Sofia, is well on her way to becoming just like her big sis. She’s already been featured in Teen Vogue and Elle.
Dakota and Elle Fanning
This could be the last time these two appear in any article about famous siblings and their lesser known brothers or sisters. Dakota and Elle have been acting since they were toddlers. Dakota has already made her mark on Hollywood, starring in over 30 films, including hits like “Man on Fire”, “War of the Worlds”, and the “Twilight” saga. Elle is following suit, recently starring in “Ginger & Rosa” and “Maleficent”.
Penelope, Monica, and Eduardo Cruz
We all know Penelope Cruz. This superstar has been in everything from “Captain Correli’s Mandolin” to “Vanilla Sky”. This superstar is actually part of a famous siblings trio, and they’re all quite accomplished.
Penelope’s sister, Monica, is a Spanish actress and dancer, and she was even Penelope’s body double in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”. Penelope’s brother, Eduardo is an accomplished musician and has worked on scores for some of her films. He gained some unwanted stardom for his tumultuous relationship with Eva Longoria.
Siblings to the Stars
All of these famous siblings have some equally accomplished not so famous counterparts, but all of them show us that talent really does run in the family. I found it interesting that all of these famous siblings and their brothers or sisters are all accomplished in some creative field. It really is fun to see the family members behind the stars.

I had no idea any of those people had siblings because they’re not really famous. I know what I see on tv 🙂
Only Dakota sounds familiar to me. I would probably need pictures to recognize who is who.
I’m familiar with several of these celebs. (I really love celebrity gossip magazines.) I wasn’t aware of Nicole Richie’s half sister, though!
I never knew that Zach Braff had siblings. I loved him in Scrubs.
I have to admit I knew some of these and I didn’t know others, I had no idea Zack Braff had two brothers!
I like reading about who’s related in hollywood. It’s always fun when I find out certain celebrities are related and I had no idea.
Very cool! I guess sometimes talent for performing arts runs in the family. It’s pretty cool that Penelope’s sister was her body double!
I think it is good that they have siblings who are also famous to share their lives with. Being in the public eye can be difficult if you don’t have a good support system.

Wow Fanning and her sister look like twins except for the height difference! I am not familiar with the other starts.
I’d love to say I find this interesting but I don’t really care much about celebrities. Most of them I don’t even know who you are taking about.
I also didn’t know about Zach Braff. These are fun little facts.

I love all these famous siblings! Dakota and Elle are my favorites.
Life as a Convert
Sometimes I read about a sibling of a star and I think “What, I had no clue they had siblings?”
I am only familiar with Dakota and Elle Fanning. Maybe it’s just me because I usually just watch and don’t bother with the actors and actresses unless I already know them.
Great list you’ve put together here. It is nice to know that these siblings support each other. The only drawback is that the less famous sibling would always have to contend with being compared with the more famous one. Big shoes to fill.
This was neat. I had no idea some of these. That is neat to know. Had no idea there were so many Braff’s!
There are a lot of famous siblings out there. I knew most of these but Zach Braff was a surprise.
