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.
Gary Oldman and Laila Morse
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.
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!
Hailey Bieber and Alaia Baldwin
Alaia and Hailey B may have been born into one of the most famous Hollywood families, but this new generation of Baldwins has carved out completely unique identities. Though both siblings began as models, older sister Alaia has taken time off to focus on her family and to raise awareness of women’s health issues.
Younger sister Hailey is known as one of the most popular models and social media influencers. She is also known for her marriage to pop icon Justin Bieber. It doesn't seem that Hailey will be shying away from the spotlight anytime soon.
Marie Osmond and Donny Osmond
Featured on the cover of countless teen magazines in the ‘70s, Donny Osmond quickly became a teen idol as a part of his family’s band, the Osmonds.
Though he would later join his sister Marie as host on their variety show "The Donny & Marie Show," the siblings would have very different futures. While Donny’s career hit a slump in the ‘80s, Marie found success as a country and pop singer and as an actress. She has also hosted her own variety show, "Marie," and served as a host on the daytime talk show, "The Talk."
