Anyone with siblings knows that question, “OMG are you related to (insert sibling’s name? You guys look so much alike!” It may get annoying for us, but imagine how the question is asked if you’re famous (or have a famous sibling).
Here are 6 pairs of siblings who definitely got asked that question a lot growing up:
Tia and Tamera Mowry
Of course, Tia and Tamera Mowry first comes to our mind! The identical twins rose to fame as the most adorable duo in the 90’s sitcom Sister, Sister and later starring together in the iconic Disney movie Twitches (2005) and Twitches Too (2007), the story of two teen witches who were separated at birth. The Mowry sisters had a brief reality series called Tia & Tamara from 2011 to 2013 as well. Today, both Tia and Tamara are married with children, and continue to work in television.
Zooey and Emily Deschanel
Although some of us may not have even realized these two were siblings (myself included!), it is clear to see the similarities between Zooey and Emily Deschanel with their stunning blue eyes. Emily is best known for her role as a forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan in the popular series Bones (2015-2017). Zooey portrayed a bubbly school teacher, Jessica Day, in the hit sitcom New Girl (2011-2018). Emily married It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia David Hornsby in 2010 while her young sister Zooey has been dating Property Brothers Jonathan Scott for a little over a year. Adorable!
Solange and Beyoncé Knowles
It is obvious that the Knowles have talent in their genes. Beyoncé gained stardom in the late 1990s as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child, known as one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. After a hiatus, Beyoncé began her solo career and the rest is history. Today, Beyoncé is one of the world’s best selling recording artists, and was listed among Times‘s 100 most influential people in the world in 2014. Her younger sister Solange followed in Beyonce’s footsteps as a singer-songwriter, as well as having several minor acting roles, including Bring It On: All Or Nothing (2006). What can’t these two do?
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
How could we not add Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to our list? The two became childhood stars at an early age for playing Michelle Tanner on the classic series, Full House (1987-1995). The Olsens also appeared in It Takes Two (1995), All My Children (1996), and Two of a Kind (1998). Even though the twins retired from acting in 2012, they still are in business together, and currently own two successful fashion brands, The Row and Elizabeth and James.
Emma and Alex Watson
Clearly good lucks run in the Watson family. Emma Watson rose to prominence with her role as Hermione Grange in the Harry Potter films, a series lasting from 2001 to 2011. This talented actress is also a huge advocate for women’s rights, helping launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, a campaigned advocating for gender equality. Alex made his move debut alongside his sister by appearing in two of the Harry Potter films, and in 2010 modeled in a campaign for the fashion brand Burberry. Today it seems Alex is private about his career and personal endeavors while sister Emma is working on new projects, including being appointed to French luxury group Kering’s Board of Directors in June.
Elle and Dakota Fanning
Last but not least, we have Hollywood’s dynamic duo, Elle and Dakota Fanning. Dakota Fanning gained recognition at the age of seven for her role as Lucy Dawson in the film I Am Sam (2001), receiving a Screen Actors Guild Award at eight. She also starred in Charlotte’s Web (2006), The Twilight Saga (2009-2012), and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019). Her younger sister, Elle is known for her role as Princess Aurora in Maleficent (2014), and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019), as well as her role as Alice Dainard in Super 8 (2011). These talented sisters are incredible actresses and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for them!
Celebs Who Got Their Start Child Acting
The road to success in Hollywood is not easy. Take it from these actors, who began their acting careers as children to follow their dreams, subsequently giving up their chance at having a “normal” childhood. Luckily for them, they later became some of the biggest names in the business. Check out these celebs we totally forgot got their start as child actors.
Before Leonardo DiCaprio became one of the world’s most famous movie stars, he appeared on “Romper Room” when he was only 5 years old.

She ended up taking home the grand prize and signed with an agent 9 months later, sending her career into take off. In 1994, a 13-year-old Alba first branched into television as Jessica in a Nickelodeon comedy series The Secret World of Alex Mack.

Justin was just 12 when he first appeared on the screen as a member of the The Mickey Mouse Club reboot in 1993 and 1994. He starred alongside Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling as well! Who knew that Mickey Mouse would pave the way for the biggest talent we all know and love today?

Musicians That Dropped Christmas Albums This Year
Not to be dramatic, but 2020 has been an absolute circus, and honestly, a little holiday cheer could go a long way these days. During any regular year, the holiday season really picks up following Thanksgiving. But this year, more and more people are putting up their Christmas trees and lights early, and of course cranking some holiday tunes.
Don’t get us wrong. Nothing bumps harder than Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You,” or even Wham’s “Last Christmas.” But with this years ~extended~ holiday season, it might be easy to get burnt out on some of these classic tracks. Luckily, some of musics hottest artists are coming to the rescue with some new releases, right when we needed them most.
Country music legend Dolly Parton is among many musicians this year that has released a new Christmas album in 2020. “A Holly Dolly Christmas” came out this October. “A Holly Dolly Christmas” has twelve songs on it, including some originals and some classics. This release comes 30 years after her previous Christmas collection, “Home for Christmas.” But wait, there’s more! The album is not the last trick she has up her sleeve this year, she also released a Christmas special on Netflix called, Christmas on the Square.
She’s all about that Christmas cheer! Meghan Trainor released “A Very Trainor Christmas” this October. The album contains some of her very own Christmas tunes as well as renditions of favorites like, “Last Christmas” and “Winter Wonderland.” The pop star also collaborated with Seth MacFarlane and Earth Wind and Fire for some songs.
Carrie Underwood is another country music queen with a Christmas gift for her fans this year. Underwood released, “My Gift” in September. This is her debut Christmas album, and it has tracks featuring John Legend. Even cuter, her five-year-old son, Isaiah collaborated with his mama on “Little Drummer Boy.” As if it couldn’t get any better, she has a Christmas special airing on December 3rd on HBO Max.
Pentatonix, a Texas a capella group released their fifth Christmas album this year called, “We Need A Little Christmas.” Well said, Pentatonix. We could not agree more! The album comes with thirteen songs, including a remaster of “White Christmas,” featuring recordings of Bing Crosby’s original vocals. Now that is awesome.
We just need this now. Lady A (formerly known as Lady Antebellum) released “On This Winter’s Night” in 2012, but this fall, they released a remastered version, including several new tracks. Since the original release of the album, all three members of the group have had children, which inspired them to pen, “Christmas Through Your Eyes,” which is one of the new songs included on the album.
As Buddy the Elf once said: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” So, what are you waiting for? Turn up the volume and warm up your vocal chords because these holiday tunes will not disappoint this Christmas season!
Five Celebrity Co-Stars that Also Dated
Just admit it, we’ve all had a workplace crush. Maybe even an office romance. Naturally, you spend a lot of time with the people you work with, and sometimes you just can’t but help to catch feelings for your coworkers. Some of Hollywood’s most famous power couples were actually co-stars before they were lovers.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
Cmon, just look at the way they look at each other. Ryan Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively met in 2010 on the set of Green Lantern. However, at the time, they were both with other people. Later in the year, they both ended their respective relationships, and in October of 2011, it was confirmed that the two were dating. A year later, they tied the knot, and since then they have stolen the hearts of many. The couple has three daughters together: James (5), Inez (3), and 9 month old Betty.
Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart
Cole Sprouse and his now ex-girlfriend Lili Reinhart met on the set of Riverdale in 2016. While fans speculated that there was a spark between the co-stars, the two were clearly very close friends. Though the two dodged these rumors for a long time, it was finally confirmed at the Met Gala in 2018 that they were a pair. For the remainder of their relationship, the two remained very private. The couple parted ways in March of 2020, and Reinhart recently came out as bisexual in June.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
It was “The Start of Something New” for the co-stars of High School Musical when they met in 2005. Zac and Vanessa played an on-screen couple, Troy and Gabriella in the hit Disney movie series. Their love transferred from innocent, high school romance while on-screen, to a real-life smoke show. Zanessa stayed together for five years and split in 2010. Unfortunately, the couple has not kept in touch since they said, “I Gotta Go My Own Way.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Ahhhh, Brangelina. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are perhaps one of Hollywood’s most famous (former) couples. Brad and Angelina met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004. At the time, Pitt was married to Friends star, Jennifer Aniston. In 2005, they divorced and in the same year a romance bloomed between Pitt and Jolie. During their iconic relationship, the couple had six kids: Maddox (19), Pax (16), Zahara (15), John (14), Knox (12) and Vivienne (12). Sadly, the pair split in September of 2016.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Another hot couple of the 2010s were Twilight co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The couple met on the set of the vampire romance movie in 2007. Rumors of a relationship between the two became a hot topic after the premiere of the move in 2008. The couple had such great chemistry both on and off-screen. The couple rang in the new year and debuted their relationship in 2010 when they embarked on a tropical vacation together. Let’s just say that fans went wild. Sadly, the couple split in 2012 when news broke that K Stew had an affair with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders.
