Like many artists, R&B superstar Toni Braxton began performing with her siblings Toni, Towanda, Tamar, Trina, and Traci Braxton. Now that’s a lot of T. Toni soon caught the eyes of record executives who persuaded her to embark on a solo career. Today, Toni has sold millions of records and her hit songs “Un-Break My Heart” and “He Wasn’t Man Enough” have become classics.
Beyond being an award-winning and influential artist, Toni has also starred in and produced reality shows centering around her life and the lives of her sisters called “Braxton Family Values” and “Tamar & Vince.”
John Travolta and Ellen Travolta
Before John Travolta was showing off his disco dance moves in "Saturday Night Fever," his older sister had already started her television career. Ellen Travolta appeared in iconic television series like "General Hospital," "Happy Days," and "Charles in Charge."
While she forged quite a career for herself in television, her brother later became one of the most famous actors in the world. Thanks to roles in "Grease," "Urban Cowboy," "Pulp Fiction," and "Get Shorty," John has become a formidable force in the industry.
John Cusack and Joan Cusack
There’s no denying that siblings John and Joan Cusack are some of Hollywood’s most acclaimed stars. While older sister Joan is known for critically-acclaimed performances in films like "Working Girl" and "In & Out," her brother became an ‘80s heartthrob thanks to that iconic boombox scene in "Say Anything."
Though both siblings have enjoyed long-spanning and successful careers, there's no denying that John has made more of a mark on Hollywood.
Joey King and Hunter King
Though older sister Hunter King had achieved success with roles in shows like "Roswell," "The Young and the Restless," and "Life in Pieces," her younger sister quickly found herself with a blossoming film career. After appearing in shows like "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody" and "New Girl," Joey was cast in films like "Ramona and Beezus," and in the horror films "The Conjuring" and "Slender Man."
Her biggest break, however, came as Elle Evans in the successful rom-com "The Kissing Booth" film series on Netflix. With her dramatic role in "The Act," she's carving her own space out in the film industry.
Margaret Qualley and Rainey Qualley
With Andie MacDowell as their mother, it's no surprise that the Qualley sisters would be naturals in front of the camera. After appearances in the hit show "Mad Men," Rainey began to pursue a music career performing under the name Rainsford.
Her sister Margaret has also pursued an acting career, and quickly received attention for her roles in "The Leftovers" and "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." Still early in her career, Margaret has become one of the most promising young actresses in Hollywood.
