Whether it’s falling in love on set or being friends with only other celebrities, celebrities tend to stick together. And no one’s closer than family, so it’s not too surprising when you find celebrities who follow their parents’ or siblings’ footsteps into stardom.But there are also other siblings who, for whatever reason, fly under the radar.
However! here are some famous celebrity siblings.
1 Emma Watson and Alex Watson.
Alex Watson almost looks more like Emma Watson than Emma Watson in this photo. Following in his older sister's footsteps, Alex landed his first modeling gig as the face for Burberry back in 2010.
2 Andrew and Luke Wilson.

Andrew, the lesser-known eldest brother, was born in 1964, Owen was born in 1968, and Luke was born in 1971.

Luke has starred in "Legally Blonde," "Alex & Emma," "Old School," "3:10 to Yuma" and "Anchorman."

3 Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck.
It might have initially been tough to escape the shadow of a famous big brother like Ben Affleck, but versatile actor Casey Affleck, left, has carved out a distinct identity of his own. In 2007 he nabbed an Oscar nomination for his role supporting Brad Pitt in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." But Casey remains close to his big bro, appearing with him in Ben's films "Gone Baby Gone," "Chasing Amy" and "Good Will Hunting." (AFP)

5 The Pitt We Don’t Hear About
Brad Pitt probably gained more clout to his name by being with Angelina Jolie than his brother Doug Pitt has accumulated in his whole career. We hardly, if ever, hear about Doug and that isn’t by accident. He likes to stay out of the attention of media and lives in his home state of Missouri. One thing he isn’t fond of is questions about his brother.
“I appreciate the interest [in Brad]. I understand why people want to ask about him,” he toldNOVA FM. “But I’ve answered the same question for 25 years. And so, you do go a little bit on autopilot… Again, I appreciate the interest. I’m really proud of him.”
6 Tom Cruise Has A Sister?
Due to the obscurities surrounding Tom Cruise’s religious beliefs as a Scientologist, some matters in his personal life are not put on full display. We know Cruise is a great actor and that he is apart of the cultish religion but something most have not known about is his sister. Who you see above is Lee Ann Mapother DeVette.
When Tom’s very first girlfriend was interviewed she was asked about his family and siblings. “I think he grew up too fast but he was very close with his three sisters. One time he said he’s so close with them they taught him how to kiss,” she told the Daily Mail.
7 Captain America Has A Brother
Being one of the most famous superheroes is a not a task easily handled. Especially for one that likes to take his shirt off with a body of an Olympian. For Chris Evans, he is used to the attention, however, for his brother Scott Evans, he receives a different type of attention due to his sexuality.
Chris’ brother Scott is gay, and Chris encourages others to see and embrace other lifestyles different from your own. “It’s important to understand, whether it’s growing up with women, whether it’s growing up with other ethnic groups… it’s important to experience anything different from what you know. To encourage and cultivate compassion and understanding,” Chris said.
8 The Stallone Brothers
Although most of us know Sylvester Stallone for his roles as the Vietnam War veteran or boxing champion, not everyone knows about Stallone’s younger brother Frank. Frank is also an actor, yet has not been nearly as successful as his older brother. he has played small roles such as a singer in the Rocky franchise, and other films such as Return of the Roller Blade Seven and Zero Dark Thirty. Although he doesn’t take his acting career to successfully, he has a successful singer-songwriter career, and his track “Far From Over” earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture.
9 Noah Cyrus
Noah Cyrus is Miley Cyrus’ 17-year-old younger sister. Although she may have been out of the limelight for most of her life, she has recently launched a surprisingly promising pop and acting career. In 2009, she voiced the title role in the English version of the film Ponyo, and in 2016, she released her debut single “Make Me (Cry)” which featured vocals from Labyrinth. She began her acting career when she was just 2 years old on the television show Doc and was on six episode of Disney Channel’s Hanna Montana. Since 2016, her music career has been on its way up and she’s opened up for artists such as Katy Parry.

It can’t be easy being the younger sister of Britney Spears, but someone’s gotta do it.
Brit’s baby sis started to rise to fame with roles on All That and Zoey 101, but her flame soon went out when she announced she was pregnant at 16.
12 Jessica Alba’s Brother Joshua Alba
The sibs share more than initials and good looks—Joshua has appeared alongside Jessica on her TV show Dark Angel.
13 Jennifer Lawrence’s Brothers Blaine and Ben Lawrence
If Jennifer seems like she’s one of the boys, it’s probably because she kind of is. She has two incredibly attractive brothers who are both (sadly) married. Darn.
14 Kirsten Dunst and Christian Dunst
Not much is known about Kirsten’s younger brother other than he’s 30 years old and clearly inherited the same good looks that his sister did.
15 Dakota Johnson.
The Fifty Shades Darkeractress sat front row at the Gucci Cruise show in Florence, Italy with her two half-sisters: Stella Banderas-Griffith — daughter of Johnson's mom Melanie Griffith and her ex-husband Antonio Banderas — and Grace Johnson — daughter of Johnson's dad Don Johnson and his current wife Kelley Phleger. There may be four different parents among the three, but it's clear that good looks run in the entire family.
16 Scarlett Johansson.
The now-17-year-old Hannah Dakota Fanning became famous as the darling young actress starring with Sean Penn in "I Am Sam." She has since grown into a teen star with recent major roles in "The Runaways" and in "The Twilight Saga" series.
Her little (though now taller than Dakota) 13-year-old sister, Elle, was also in "I Am Sam" though at the time she was only 3. Since then, she's had roles in numerous films, including in the festival fave "Phoebe in Wonderland" and most recently in J.J. Abrams' "Super 8."
18 Cara Delevigne’s Model Sister.
Cara Delevigne, high fashion model, actress and Taylor Swift bestie, rose to fame alongside her girl squad when she was featured in a Burberry spring/summer campaign in 2011. It turns out the famed model also has super-successful model sister who’s wildly successful in the high fashion circuit but hardly known to mainstream media.
Polly Delevigne has worked for numerous brands including Alberta Ferretti and Burberry. In many ways, she paved the way for younger sis Cara to have a rich career. She’s also had roles in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Elvis & Nixon. She even has three films and a TV series coming out in 2018.
