I loved when Kelly Osbourne said she'd be more successful if her dad weren't famous.

I agree with all the suggestions - especially in music lots of famous parents - but:

I think Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman established themselves as good actresses without help - remember, Kidman got her acting break AFTER the divorce. And Michael Douglas too is a good actor. They all got Oscars.

As for Nicolas Cage - again, a very good actor - has the last name Cage exactly because he doesn't want to be associated with the director Coppola.

(i don't know the Dad Balwin, only the brothers Baldwin - of which Alec is the best known)

I don't know if having a famous parent helps or not (if you're in the same profession, probably not a good thing), maybe in some cases it does - I do believe Stella McCartney is a talented fashion designer and deserved a shot at designing.

I saw a video from Julian Lennon once, and it's almost spooky how similar his looks and voice are to his father's. If there'd ever been a substitute singer with the Beatles, he ought to get the position IMO.

In defence of my dearly beloved Nic Cage, he apparently hid his identity when trying to make his break and no one really had any idea until he got more well known.

Yup. I was just about to say that angie. And I don't even like Nic Cage. But he DID change his name so he wouldn't be known as a member of the Coppola family. Kudos to him.

Who is Sean Astin related to??

Don't forget Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Anniston and JFK Jr (any of the Kennedy kids, for that matter). Also, isn't Kevin Costner's son doing some acting.

Ivanka Trump. I think she's modeling now. *shudder* Nicole Richie.

Her dad is John Aniston, he was on the soap Days of Our Lives, but was recently killed off.

Yeah, who is Sean Astin related to?

I think Michael Douglas is talented without the help of a famous father.
