Sometimes, with their enormous mansions and red carpet appearances, it can seem like celebrities can’t possibly live a normal life. However, just like us, they too have families, children, and even grandchildren. While even the most famous and influential celebrities pass away, their legacy lives through their family members. And, sometimes, famous grandchildren inherit not only their iconic grandparents’ money, but also some of their talent!
From Dakota Johnson and Drew Barrymore to Chris Pine and Jason Patric, all these famous grandchildren have some iconic grandmothers and grandfathers to thank for their genes! Read on to see if your favorite celebrity has a famous grandkid…
1. Drew Barrymore and John Barrymore
These days, it seems like actress Drew Barrymore is more famous for everything else she does, like becoming an author and entrepreneur. However, the former child star’s first love remains acting. Of course, that might be because Drew is not the only acting jewel in her family. She’s actually the granddaughter of John Barrymore!
For those who don’t know, John Barrymore was a famous stage, screen, and radio performer from the 1910s and 1920s. During his reign, John even earned the title of the “greatest living American tragedian” for his incredible portrayal of Hamlet. John, a friend of W. C. Fields and Errol Flynn, became so popular that Hollywood started basing movies on his life, like Too Much, Too Soon in 1958!
