By the 1980s, both Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estévez were Hollywood heavyweights. Charlie had starred in major films like “Platoon” and “Wall Street” while Emilio was part of the decade’s “brat pack” thanks to roles in films like “The Breakfast Club” and “The Outsiders.” In the decades to follow, Charlie’s scandalous life and risque romances kept him in the spotlight and on the cover of tabloid magazines.
All that attention helped him land his role in the hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” making him the highest-paid actor on television at the time. We’re sure that Charlie’s infamy made Emilio sing “don’t you…forget about me.” Yes, that is a “Breakfast Club” reference!
Vanessa Williams and Chris Williams
It can be difficult to live in the shadow of Miss America, as Chris Williams would find out. While he managed to find roles on well-known television shows like "JAG" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," he hasn’t been able to achieve the heights of fame that his older sister Vanessa has achieved.
With a successful music and film career, Vanessa is one of the most popular female entertainers in Hollywood. In addition to being talented, Vanessa is known for her barrier-breaking achievements including becoming the first African American woman to receive the title of Miss America. Talk about a trailblazer!
Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson
There’s no denying that the late Michael Jackson was truly the “King of Pop”. Younger sister Janet, however, also managed to carve out her own identity as an artist to become known as the “Queen of Pop” and one of the best-selling artists in history.
From appearances on classic television shows like "Diff’rent Strokes" and "Good Times" to sold-out arenas and chart-topping hits, Janet has become so much more than Michael’s sister. Today, Janet is still recognized as a powerful influence in the music and entertainment industry.
Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones
In the ‘90s, model and fashion designer Kidada Jones was the go-to designer when it came to street style. She worked with labels like Tommy Hilfiger and dressed stars like Aaliyah and Snoop Dogg,
Kidada was one of the most in-demand fashionistas. Her younger sister, however, enjoyed a career surge in the early 2000s thanks to roles in the sitcoms "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation" and comedic films like "I Love You, Man." With an established acting and writing career, it seems that Rashida’s fame will only continue to grow.
Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth
Most people would agree that there is no shortage of good looks and talent in the Hemsworth family. Aussie brothers Chris and Liam have both conquered Hollywood much to the delight of their fans.
The younger Hemsworth, Liam, has had memorable roles in "The Hunger Games" films and is known for his high-profile relationship with Miley Cyrus. Chris, however, saw his career soar when he was cast as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Fingers crossed Liam catches up to his brother's success sometime soon.
