Hollywood is part of our lives, watching television shows and films are like brushing our teeth in the morning or taking a shower, we just can't afford to skip any; and if we do, we get the sense of incompleteness in our life. Personally, I make sure to watch an episode or a film every day after work.
Recently, while I decided to re-watch some of the golden movies in my collection, I came across the movie 'The Pursuit of Happyness,' and then I realised how beautiful Will and Jaden Smith's 'father-son' relationship looked on screen. That surprising resemblance of expressions and features on their face seemed so compelling that I couldn't get my eyes off the scene. Watching this film, I realised there's surely not just one pair of real life 'parent-children' in Hollywood who appeared on the screen together, and this curiosity of mine lead to the creation of this list.
Have a look!
The 2007 melodramatic film 'Evening' featured the character of Lila Wittenborn which was shared by real life mother and daughter, Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer. Mamie not only looks like her mother, but has also adopted to her classic acting style.
Zoe Perry and Laurie Metcalf have played the role of Mary Cooper, who is Sheldon's mother in The Big Bang Theory and its prequel. Both of them have been spotted together in the American sitcom Roseanne as well.
Don't get surprised with the shocking resemblance between the two images above. The actresses who played the role of Dayanara Diaz in Orange is the New Black, 2013 are mother and daughter in real life.
In one of the instalments of this fantastic series, the role of Selene was played by Kate Beckinsale's daughter, Lily Mo Sheen. However, not many people know, but Michael Sheen (girl's father) also played the role of leader of the Lycan Clan.
Robert Downey Jr. and his son, Indio Falconer Downey came along in the 2005 film, 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'.
Susan Sarandon's daughter, Eva Amurri has 'rejuvenated' her mother's character a lot of times just like she did in 'That's My Boy'. In the crime thriller 'Dead Men Walking', you can find her younger sister Helen as well.
The 2014 film, 'Head Full of Honey' features the role of daughter and father which is played by real life daughter and father, Til Schweiger and Emma Schweiger.
Will Smith and Jaden Smith have been portraying their real life son and father relationship on screen for a long time now. From the 'The Pursuit of Happyness' to the catastrophic film 'After Earth,' you couldn't find anyone better than Jaden to play Will's son.
Just like Douglas', the talent is passed on to many generations in Stillers. Unfortunately, Ben Stiller is not acting in the films, but his son always makes his presence felt in the industry. In 2007 film, 'The Heartbreak Kid,' Ben and Jerry played the role of a son and father.
Demi Moore's daughters with Bruce Willis have made a bombarding debut in the world of cinema long ago. However, 'Striptease' which released in 1996 featured the older daughter of this couple known as Rumer Willis.
The 2003 film, 'It Runs In The Family' featured almost all the famous people from Douglas family. In the film, Michael and Cameron Douglas played the role of the grandson of Mitchell Gromberg (Kirk Douglas). The film also features Diana, the wife of Kirk Douglas.
That's all, folks!
