Iconic pop princess Britney Spears needs no introduction. Alongside her platinum music career, her scandalous life and recent legal battles have kept her in the public eye at all times.
Her younger sister Jamie Lynn enjoyed some success with her Nickelodeon show “Zoey 101” but she never came close to eclipsing her sister’s star power. Britney has and always will be the superstar Spears sister.
Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen
Debbie Allen is considered one of the most celebrated and decorated stars in Tinseltown. That said, there is no denying that her sister Phylicia Rashad is also a star. As Clair Huxtable on the classic sitcom "The Cosby Show," Rashad enchanted viewers for almost a decade.
Beyond that iconic role, Rashad has also provided her voice to children’s television shows like "Little Bill" and the film "Soul." Today, both women remain beloved icons for their talent and barrier-breaking achievement in the arts.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal
Born to filmmakers Stephen Gyllenhaal and Naomi Foner, the Gyllenhaal siblings seemed destined to become famous. Though both siblings had appeared in several of their father’s films, it was their roles (as...you guessed it, brother and sister) in the cult-favorite "Donnie Darko" that helped launch their careers.
While Maggie is known for critically-acclaimed roles in films like "Secretary" and her directorial debut with "The Lost Daughter, "Jake is considered to be one of Tinsel Town's leading men. In addition to starring in films like "Brokeback Mountain," "Nightcrawler," and "Spider-Man: Far From Home," Jake’s fame has grown thanks to his heartthrob appearance and his high-profile relationships with other stars.
Ashley Judd and Wynonna Judd
Before Ashley Judd had become one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood, most people associated the last name Judd with the mother-daughter country music duo, the Judds. Made up of mother Naomi Judd and Ashley’s half-sister Wynonna, the duo dominated the charts with hits like “Why Not Me'' and “Mama, He’s Crazy”.
By the ’90s, Ashley had risen to fame with roles in "Heat," "A Time to Kill," and "Double Jeopardy." While Wynonna is still a beloved part of the music industry, Ashley continues to be a famous figure as an actress and political activist.
Ralph Fiennes and Joseph Fiennes
Though younger brother Joseph shot to fame thanks to his role in "Shakespeare in Love," he never achieved the career momentum of his older brother, Ralph. Ralph’s impressive acting resume includes his iconic villainous role as Voldemort in the mega-successful "Harry Potter" franchise.
While there is no doubt that both brothers are immensely talented, it seems that Ralph has stolen his brother's acting thunder.
