That being said, having a family member in the business makes it a lot easier to get through the door. From Tom Cruise and William Mapother to Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn, here are some celebrities that call each other family.

8. Drew Barrymore And Steven Spielberg
So Drew Barrymore and Steven Spielberg aren’t actually related by blood or marriage but nonetheless the two are related. How? Well, the critically-acclaimed director happens to be the actress’s appointed Godfather. The two would go on to form a close bond to the point where he was more her father than her actual father. He helped her get her start in the industry by casting her in films like E.T. and Firestarter. It also helped that the young actress was part of the Barrymore family considered as being the most prominent family of actors spanning decades as far back as the early 1800’s.

7. Al Roker And Lenny Kravitz
What does the famous weatherman and tv personality have in common with rock musician Lenny Kravitz? Oh, nothing much. Just the fact that the two are related by blood. Back in 2011, Al Roker confirmed that the news was true while on the TODAY show with Lenny himself agreeing that everything checks out. Turns out, Roker’s grandfather is cousins with Kravitz’s grandfather, Albert Roker. That means that Kravitz and Roker have the same great-great-grandfather. What are the odds?


6. Snoop Dogg, Brandy, And Ray J
Okay, so we know that Brandy and Ray J are brother and sister but did you know the pair is related to Snoop Lion erh we mean Snoop Dogg?

Snoop Dogg and Brandy have even worked together back in 2009 on one of his songs titled “Special.” Their family reunions must be pretty wild.

5. Liev Schreiber And Pablo Schreiber

The two share the same father, who was also an actor, named Tell Carroll Schreiber. Pablo can be seen sporting his character George Mendez’s infamous mustache in Netflix’s Orange is the New Black and in his upcoming film Den of Thieves.


4. Kate Hudson And Goldie Hawn
The family of actress Kate Hudson is just filled to the brim with people working in Hollywood. This is partly in thanks to her mother being Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Goldie Hawn and her father being actor Bill Hudson. Her parents split when she was only a year old and she was raised by her mother and her mother’s current boyfriend Kurt Russell. Her older brother, Oliver Hudson, also happens to be an actor whose most current work was a role on Scream Queens.


3. Gwyneth Paltrow And Blythe Danner
Gwyneth Paltrow is best known for her roles in Seven, Shakespeare in Love, and as Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She’s managed to establish quite the career for herself apart from her mother being fellow actress Blythe Danner. Danner is well-known as not only a stage actress, but having a fruitful career in both television and film. She is also the mother of Jake Paltrow, who is a screenwriter and director, and the widow of former director and producer Bruce Paltrow.


2. Kate Middleton And The Fannings
It seems that the Duchess of Cambridge was already a royal before she married into the current royal family. Middleton’s mother, Carole Goldsmith, happens to be a direct descendant of King Edward III as one of his granddaughters. Dakota and Elle Fanning happen to also be related to King Edward III as his granddaughters which makes the two sisters cousins to the future queen of England. Researchers from Ancestry.com looked through over 700 years of historical records to make the connection.


1. Halle Berry And Sarah Palin
In what is definitely the most shocking revelation on this list is that Academy Award-winning actress and all around gem Halle Berry is distantly related to Republican Sarah Palin.
