Next up is the very girl-next-door but also very-not (ahem Anastasia Steele), Miss Dakota Johnson. The daughter of screen legends Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, it’s safe to say that acting is in the blood! Born in Austin, Texas, a young Dakota was quickly scouted (well that was bound to happen with star parents) as a model, before moving into film, following in her parents’ footsteps. Making her debut in 2010, you would’ve seen her in a few films!
Most notably, however, is her role as Anastasia Steele, the protagonist in the book-turned-film series Fifty Shades of Grey. The controversial role saw Johnson strip down for the part, owing to the nature of the lewd content. But hey, if you’re going to have a breakthrough role, it doesn’t get better than this! In fact, for her role as the salacious (well, she didn’t start out that way, but Mr. Grey certainly got that out of her!) Ms. Steele, she won the People’s Choice Award, as well as being nominated for the BAFTA Award for Rising Stars. Other film roles for Johnson include Suspiria, The Social Network, 21 Jump Street, Wounds and The Peanut Butter Falcon. With her dramatic prowess, Johnson has been fortunate for being cast in lots of dramas, as well as a few rom coms – but we’re sure we’ll see a lot more of Johnson in the coming years!

No need for an introduction for this Hollywood babe! Kate Hudson, the Oscar-nominated actress, and daughter of legend Goldie Hawn are well, set to inherit a nice little sum from mother dearest. But hey, we’re not counting too closely here – with a stepfather in Kurt Russell, and her own fortune amassed over the years, we’re really not worried about her financials.
Hudson first started acting at the tender age of eleven, appearing on stage in fact! From the Santa Monica Playhouse, well, the world was her oyster and went on over to film work in the 1998 film Desert Blue. Fast forward a little while and we come to her breakthrough role, Almost Famous. It was her role as the flirtatious band groupie Penny Lane that won her a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination! We just love her in How To Lose a Guy In Ten Days opposite Matthew McConaughey though! She’s also appeared in Fool’s Gold, My Best Friend’s Girl and Bride Wars, among others. To keep the income streaming in, Hudson also founded her own fashion activewear label, Fabletics.

Now, this esteemed Hollywood actress possesses an undeniable talent. Starting from young, Scarlett Johansson has been charming audiences in her teens, and still is to this day – surely you’ve seen The Avengers and thus seen Johansson in her badass costume as Black Widow. Recently in an interview, Johansson has been pegged a real-life female superhero for her comeback to a pesky reporter.
The reporter asked quite rudely (if you ask us!), if she wore any underwear underneath her PVC suit, to which she replied “seriously?” You get ‘em girl! Having been in the industry for many years, she’s got a solid footing in cinema, but there’s definitely some kudos to her parents for that initial leg-up! One parent is a successful Danish architect – the other, a film producer! Hollywood is tough to crack, but surely with her parents’ background, there was a little help! Some of Johansson’s best films include Lost in Translation, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Under the Skin, The Other Boleyn Girl and of course, her roles in the Marvel Universe as Black Widow.

Kyra Sedgwick just has one of those faces – you’ve seen her, you know her face, but you may not know her name! Apologies to the fans! But we’re just sayin’ okay. The Golden Globe award winner sure has been in a fair few TV shows and films, but we have a feeling you didn’t know she was born into money. She’s the daughter of an extremely successful venture capitalist, Henry Dwight Sedgwick V. Quite the name too eh? Adding to that wealth, Sedgwick is actually married to Hollywood star Kevin Bacon! Yes, Mr. Footloose himself!
Sedgwick first made waves in Hollywood as a teenager, starting out her career at 16, on the show Another World. This debut was successful and led to her being cast in films including Phenomenon, Singles and Heart and Souls. She also co-starred alongside Tom Cruise in the Oscar-nominated Vietnam War film Born on the Fourth of July. But perhaps her most famous role is in the TNT series The Closer. This role garnered Sedgwick much critical acclaim, as well as a number of Golden Globe and SAG award nominations! Okay and before we forget, for you Brooklyn 99’ers, she’s of course Holt’s nemesis, the notorious, antagonistic Madeline Wuntch! If you’re not caught up on her and Holt’s ongoing feud, you are missing out.

Nicola Peltz has shot into the spotlight in recent years thanks to her high-profile marriage to Brooklyn Beckham. But Peltz is no stranger to the high life. Her father is American billionaire and businessman Nelson Peltz, and her mother is model Claudia Heffner. In fact, she is one of eight children, and she also has two half-siblings from her father's previous marriage.
Peltz has tried to make her own name for herself and delved into acting at an early age. Some of her key performances include "Bates Motel," "The Last Airbender," and "Transformers: Age of Extinction." In 2022, Peltz married Brooklyn Beckham in a star-studded (and drama-filled) wedding in Palm Beach, Florida.
