We all had a love-hate relationship with Marnie in HBO’s “Girls,” which means that actress Alison Williams did a very good job with the character. Williams made her debut in the hit show, but she has gone on to land big roles in Hollywood hits like “Get Out” and “M3GAN.” But before she proved her talent, she was mostly known as famous NBC news anchor Brian Williams’s daughter, which she admits really bothered her.
Nowadays, Alison states that she has “formed my own thing, and now I get people who are surprised to find out he’s my dad.” Brian Williams is a very successful TV news anchor and journalist who started his career as a correspondent for NBC’s Nightly News back in 1993. He stayed on as anchor and managing editor of the broadcast for 28 years, before finally retiring.
Jessica Capshaw Is Steven Spielberg’s Stepdaughter
The actress Jessica Capshaw is best known for her role as Arizona Robbins in ABC’s long-running medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” She also had a role in the main cast of the legal drama “The Practice,” and has appeared in guest roles in other shows, including “Bones,” “Tell Me Lies,” and “The L Word.”
Jessica’s mother is actress Kate Capshaw, who starred in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” the second installment in the legendary film series.

Kate Hudson Is Goldie Hawn’s Daughter
Kate Hudson comes from Hollywood royalty on both sides of the family. She busted into Hollywood the old-fashioned way: with one big performance in one of 1998’s unlikeliest breakout hits, “Almost Famous,” Cameron Crowe's ode to 1970s rock and Rolling Stone journalism. Hudson played the archetypical hippie chick Penny Lane — cool, collected, fun, and wrapped around a tragic interior.
Her specialty since has mostly been in romantic comedies and breezy action movies. Hudson grew up in Hollywood with her mother Goldie Hawn and stepfather Kurt Russell, both major stars through the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The longtime partners—together since 1983—have appeared in several films together, including “Swing Shift” and “Overboard.”
Lenny Kravitz Is Roxie Roker’s Son
American rockstar Lenny Kravitz skyrocketed to fame during the 1990s, with hits like “American Woman” and "Are You Gonna Go My Way.” But long before that, a young Lenny was already growing up in a celebrity household, since he was the son of famous 70s actress Roxie Roker and film producer Sy Kravitz.
Roker was a well-known TV star who acted in several famous sitcoms of the 70s and 80s, but her most iconic role was that of Helen Willis on the hit show “The Jeffersons.” Apart from his music and the occasional small acting roles, Kravitz has remained in the spotlight through his ex-wife, beautiful actress Lisa Bonnet, and their daughter, famous actress Zoe Kravitz.
Liv Tyler Is Steven Tyler’s Daughter
Actress Liv Tyler didn't find out Steven Tyler was her father until she was around 10 years old. Until then she thought her dad was Todd Rundgren, the rock musician who was in a relationship with Liv's mother, Bebe Buell, for most of the 70s. Liv eventually came to have a close relationship with her biological father Steven, the lead singer of the famous rock band Aerosmith.
After early breaks in the memorable indie hit “Empire Records” and Bernardo Bertolucci's “Stealing Beauty,” Liv starred in turn-of-the-century hits like Michael Bay's “Armageddon” and Peter Jackson's “The Lord of The Rings” trilogy. Most recently, she's starred in HBO's “The Leftovers,” the film “Ad Astra,” and more.
