There’s one sure fire way to get your foot in the door in Hollywood and that’s to have a man on the inside. Having a friend or family member who already has a successful career and is well known throughout the industry definitely doesn’t hurt when you’re on the rise and trying to make your mark in the biz called show. Want that role in the latest Sci-fi movie? Well, daddy’s the director so all you have to do is ask. But, believe it or not, there are some super famous celebs that chose a different route. They didn’t want to ride the coat tails of their famous predecessors. There are those who wish to make their own mark, to build a name without the association of their well known relatives. Often it’s to prove to themselves that they can do it on their own merit, and to gain a fan base that loves them for who they are and not just their family name. Check out this list of celebrities you didn’t know had famous relatives and see for yourself.

She always plays the sweet mom role in movies, but Blythe Danner is best known for her role in the Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers movies. She plays mother-in-law to Gaylord Focker (Ben Stiller) and does a darn good job of it. But her stellar skills in acting as a mom may be because she’s an awesome mother in real life, you just don’t’ know it. Blythe is the real mother to mega actress Gwyneth Paltrow! The two blonde beauties both have reputable careers in Hollywood, but never boast about the relation. Maybe someday we’ll see the ladies in a mother-daughter role together!
