Many kids of the stars want to follow their parents’ footsteps into the spotlight. Hollywood is full of people who became famous because their celebrity mom or dad. Now, the children may have some serious talent themselves, but their family connection certainly helps them get a leg up in the business. Here are 8 celebrities who are famous mostly because of their Hollywood parents.
1. Kelly Osbourne
The child of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly doesn’t even have a shadow of her famous father’s talent. In fact, most regard her as one of the most annoying celebs out there. She hasn’t been able to build a career of substance. Still, her parentage has helped her land some decent presenting roles, and she also had a spin on Dancing with the Stars. Without The Osbornes reality show, she’d be anonymous.
2. Kim Kardashian
Kim is pretty, but it takes more than that to make it in Hollywood. She has two amazing fathers that gave her PR value a boost. Her biological father who was OJ Simpson’s defense lawyer, and her step father, Bruce Jenner, an Olympic icon. The two ensured that Kim was always in the company of famous and powerful people. We can see how this has paid off – from the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians to a number of lucrative contracts.
