23 Current Stars Who Have Famous Parents

Which faces of the big and small screen (and radio) were created by other famous faces? Oh,Ā Mariska Hargitay, for example. The lovely star ofĀ Law & Order: Special Victims UnitĀ is the daughter of bodybuilder / plant aficionado Mickey Hargitay and early blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield. Hargitay was only three and a half years old when Mansfield was killed in a car accident. Hargitay and her two brothers were in the car at the time.

Other TV stars with includeĀ GirlsĀ stars Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet. Williams is the daughter ofĀ NBC Nightly NewsĀ anchor Brian Williams, and Mamet is the daughter ofĀ Glengarry Glen RossĀ writer David Mamet. Eve Hewson, who stars in Cinemax’sĀ The KnickĀ andĀ Bridge of Spies, is the daughter of U2 frontman Paul Hewson, aka Bono. Katie Cassidy, who stars in The CW seriesĀ Arrow, is the daughter of 1970s heartthrob David Cassidy. And Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Grant onĀ Scandal, is the grandson of media mogul Samuel Goldwyn – as in Metro Goldwyn Mayer.

Take a look at these apples who have not fallen far from their respective trees, and rest assured that even in Hollywood, anything is possible if you have the right connections (like to a famous parent – maybe Bono or someone like that).
