Hollywood has seen their fair share of Hollywood power couples, and when the very esteemed Burt Reynolds tied the knot for the second time, with Loni Anderson, the paparazzi had their cameras well and truly ready. However, after just five years, the pair separated in 1993. Together the couple had a son, Quinton A. Reynolds. A camera assistant, the young Reynolds preferred to sit behind the camera as opposed to in front of it like his famous father.
When Reynolds passed recently at age 82, there was some controversy as he intentionally left his son out of the will – but for good reason – he had already provided Quinton with a trust fund and didn’t need to include him in the will!
Karsen Liotta – Ray Liotta
The daughter of famed actor Ray Liotta seems to have taken a few pages out of her dad’s book, and is pursuing an acting career! A typical SoCal girl, Karsen had a blessed teenage life, heading to the beach and indulging in tacos. But of course, how could she say no to attending red carpets with her Goodfellas star father, Ray Liotta? As well as acting, Karsen enjoyed success modeling.
She owes her ethic and some of her success to her dad’s tutelage and wise words. The young Liotta says that she learned the most important things from her father when he was alive: “he taught me to do my homework, to always practice… that’s how you get where you want to be.” Amen, sister. Her mother, Michelle Grace, first met Ray Liotta on the set of The Rat Pack – and Karsen was born just a year later. Love it!
Sam Fox – Michael J. Fox
Wow. Sam certainly looks very much like ‘80s icon father, Michael J. Fox, known for his roles in Teen Wolf, Family Ties, and Back to the Future. Despite the fact that the older Fox has battled Parkinson’s disease since the early 90s, he continues to fight, making appearances on TV, in film, and on the red carpet!
Fox has four kids with Tracy Pollan, but we can’t get over the resemblance between Michael J. and Sam! Just look at them — they have got the same eyes, the same eyebrows, the same hair, and even the same smile. It's uncanny!
Joseph Baena – Arnold Schwarzenegger
There certainly aren’t many men built like the Austrian Oak himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. But let us just say, the similarity between Arnold and his lovechild with employee Mildred Patricia Baena, is ridiculously close! For years, Arnold’s global repute has been strong, with his bodybuilding legacy and acting career, as well as his stint in politics! Whilst his fans adore him, he’s just human like the rest of us and makes mistakes.
He may not be proud of the affair, but surely, he can be proud of his handsome, strapping, young son. It seems that he definitely got his great muscle-building genetics from his father, with a physique that is reminiscent of his father’s back in the day. Pumping Iron Vol. 2?
Olivia Washington – Denzel Washington
Now when your father is a Hollywood hard hitter (that was a The Hurricane pun), and heartthrob, you’re bound to get quite a bit of attention. And when it’s none other than Denzel Washington, well, yeah, enough said. But it seems that Olivia Washington has some acting chops of her own, which she perhaps inherited from her extremely famous actor father.
Her career was launched in the film The Butler, followed by The Comedian and Mr. Robot. After graduating from college, she decided she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps, but without any of his help or connections. Look, we admire her anti-nepotism stance, but let’s be real… people aren’t going to just overlook such a connection.
