People often think of celebrities as almost otherworldly superheroes, far beyond everyday people. However, this could not be further from the truth. Stars are regular people, just like you and me. And, just like everyone else, they have friends and family who support them in their darkest hour. Not only that, but, just like many others around the world, many famous celebrities have siblings.
Of course, living in the shadow of some of the most famous people in the world cannot be easier. Just ask these celebrity siblings, many of whom have spent the majority of their lives trying to avoid the public eye!
1. Penelope and Monica Cruz
Iconic actress Penelope Cruz started her entertainment career as a model at just 15-years-old. Just a year later, she made her screen debut in the film Jamón Jamón. Since then, Cruz has become one of the most famous actresses in the world, starring in films for multiple countries over her decades in the industry.
Apparently, the good genes run through all of the Cruz family. Penelope’s sister, Monica Cruz, has followed her sister’s steps, becoming an actress. While she’s not as successful as her sister, Monica is doing just fine on her own! Meanwhile, Penelope has actually helped her get some of her best work. You see, in 2010, Penelope became pregnant while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. As filming continued, filmmakers hired Monica as her double for long-distance scenes to help hide the pregnancy!
