11 Movies In Which Legendary Actors And Their Children Starred Together

Stars of Hollywood usually keep their children out of public eyes, as they want to keep them safe from gossip and rumors. Some of those kids grow up learning about their moms’ and dads’ careers and wish to follow their parent’s path, becoming a star themselves. Sometimes, the young actors even make an appearance in movies where their parents star in. However, not many can achieve success as their fathers and mothers do. Those who do, however, share the fame with their parents, even surpassing them.

Families playing families in movies are pretty rare in Hollywood. Only on several occasions do we see the children have fun with their parents on stage. With this family resemblance in mind, here are 11 movies that featured renowned actors and their children.

#1 Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer, Evening, 2007

This mother-daughter pair can be difficult to tell apart. What’s more, Meryl Streep even inherited her mother’s acting talent, allowing the young actress to rub shoulders with Mamie Gummer.
