There’s no denying that actor Jerry O’Connell has had one of the longest-running careers compared to most former child stars. With roles in the classic ’80s film “Stand by Me” and the television drama “Crossing Jordan,” Jerry has quite the acting resume.
Though younger brother Charlie never achieved the same acting career as Jerry, he found fame as the star of the reality dating show “The Bachelor” in 2005. The show, which featured his on-off relationship with contestant Sarah Brice, quickly became a fan favorite and helped boost his popularity.
Alfie Allen and Lily Allen
In the early 2000s, Lily Allen became a common fixture on the music charts with hits like “ Smile” “LDN”, and “Alfie”. While Allen is still making music, her popularity has slowly waned. In a surprising twist, her younger brother Alfie (and the subject of one of her greatest hits, “Alfie”) has enjoyed growing success as an actor.
With major roles in "Game of Thrones," "John Wick" and "Jojo Rabbit," Alfie has clearly grown past being just Lily Allen’s younger brother.
Jesse Eisenberg and Hallie Eisenberg
Most people would be surprised to know that the adorably dimpled commercial star is actually the sister of actor Jesse Eisenberg. After finding success as “The Pepsi Girl”, Hallie appeared in several films including "Beautiful" and "How to Eat Fried Worms."
Years later, brother Jesse received fame and acclaim for his role as the infamous Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network." Jesse’s success has continued with roles in films like "Adventureland" and the "Now You See Me" film series. With more major roles in his future, Jesse’s career shows no signs of stopping.
Alec Baldwin and the Baldwin Brothers
During the ‘80s and ‘90s, the Baldwin brothers seemed to be everywhere. From television shows to films, viewers couldn’t get enough of the talented family. As time went on, however, the fame of brothers Daniel, William, and Stephen seemed to wane.
Alec’s career, on the other hand, continued to be successful with roles in sitcoms like "30 Rock," and films like "The Aviator." Alec also gained new notoriety in his popular politically-themed skits on "Saturday Night Live."
Cara Delevingne and Poppy Delevingne
While Poppy Delevinge was first on the UK modeling and socialite scene, it was baby sister Cara who really stole the show. A frequent fixture in the tabloids and socialite scene, Poppy had become a muse for some of Britain’s hottest designers.
However, soon enough Cara cat-walked right past her older sister to become fashion's "It Girl". Now a highly successful model, Cara has explored the world of acting with roles in the action film "Suicide Squad" and the television series "Carnival Row."
