By the 1990s, actor Gary Oldman was one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood thanks to films like Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and “The Fifth Element.” By the early 2000s, however, his career seemed to come to a stop.
At the same time, his older sister, actress Laila Morse was enjoying fame and success on the long-running British television series “EastEnders.” Thankfully, roles in the “Harry Potter” franchise and “Batman Begins” gave his career a much-needed energy boost. Today, Gary Oldman is considered one of the best actors in the industry.
Jennifer Lopez and Lynda Lopez
By the time Jennifer Lopez was embarking on her music career, her younger sister Lynda was a well-known and respected radio personality and news anchor in New York. Though Lynda secured jobs with VH1 and E! News Live and was an Emmy Award-winning news anchor, her sister had already achieved international stardom.
With fashion lines, a film career, and a multitude of chart-topping hits, Jennifer is a pop icon. More than just a triple threat, Jennifer has broken barriers for other Latin entertainers and celebrities.
Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner
The two youngest Kardashian/Jenner sisters have certainly forged their own paths out of the mega-famous older sister's shadows. While initially, it appeared that Kendall Jenner, with her blossoming supermodel career, would be the more successful of the pair, it's Kylie Jenner that reigns supreme.
Kylie found her niche in the beauty industry with her mega-successful company Kylie Cosmetics. Her beauty brand is so popular that it's propelled the star to (almost) billionaire status. All at the ripe age of 24! Not to mention, she's amassed over 300 million Instagram followers (and counting). Kendall is a mere 100 million followers behind. Catch-up, Kendall!
Kieran Culkin and Macaulay Culkin
When most people think of child stars, one of the first celebrities they tend to think of is Macaulay Culkin. As the star of the first two "Home Alone" films, Macaulay became one of the most popular actors in the early ‘90s.
Macaulay eventually decided to take a hiatus from acting. Younger brother Kieran was able to continue the momentum of his child actor career with critically acclaimed performances in "Igby Goes Down." However, it's Kieran's recent role as a bad boy with a heart (and pocket full) of gold Roman Roy in the critically acclaimed television series "Succession" that has helped him overshadow his brother's fame.
Seth Meyers and Josh Meyers
Comedic timing is certainly a gift both Meyers brothers share. While younger brother Josh found success on the sketch comedy series "MADtv," older brother Seth also gained a comedy cult following for his hilarious "Weekend Update" skits on "Saturday Night Live."
Seth's star power has continued to grow with him landing the gig as host of the late-night talk show "Late Night with Seth Meyers." While Josh continues to act, there’s no doubt that his brother Seth has forged a more noteworthy career.
