The record of famous actors who share the profession with their parents or their children is endless. This is why it’s not rare that some of the relationships portrayed on-screen actually exist and are faithfully represented in the stories. We may think it’s tough for us to bring a character to life with our brother or father right there. However, the artists on this list have shown that they’re capable of removing their personal lives from the fiction they are portraying, so that the public hardly notices that they belong to the same family.
Bright Side will show you the actors and actresses who worked on a movie with their own family members.
1. Brad Pitt and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
In the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, from 2008, we briefly saw little Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who portrayed Benjamin Button’s (Brad Pitt) daughter, who was around 2 years old at the time. This was her first time in the acting world, and in 2016, Shiloh worked as a voice actress in the movie Kung Fu Panda 3, giving her voice to the character Shuai Shuai.
2. Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal in Donnie Darko
The film Donnie Darko, released in 2008, stars Jake Gyllenhaal in the leading role and his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal. Writer and director Richard Kelly took an interest in Maggie and cast her as his sister so that both siblings could more easily represent the healthy rivalry that often exists between members of a family.
