Even though it is true that celebrity teens have an advantage by being born in wealth, it is often much harder for them to achieve their own level of fame. A burden of their parents’ achievements is sometimes weighing them down, which prevents them from succeeding on their own. However, some kids even manage to become more famous than their famous parents, and five of them listed above actually did it. Check out who they are.
Growing up a daughter of worldwide-known stars Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson is certainly not the easiest thing to do, however Dakota did it with class. She completely nailed it in Fifty Shades of Grey, where she depicted inexperienced and naïve Anastasia Steele, the role which gave her a status of IT girl and A-list star. We are all looking forward for the sequels, which are, of course, expected to be as massive as the first one. No matter whether you like her or not – she did a great job!
Even though many people tend to underestimate this fabulous girl just because of the fact that she belongs to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, her modelling career is definitely not a joke. Kris and Caitlyn Jenner’s older daughter is one of the most wanted girls in the both fashion and beauty industries, being Karl Lagerfeld’s muse and runway model. Estee Lauder and Marc Jacobs are just some of the big names which completely adore this gal, who seems to be completely different from her half-sisters. She is not famous for being famous – Kendall worked very hard to become what she is now.
Being a daughter of Lenny Kravitz certainly brings many privileges, however, Zoe is working out on her own way to superstardom. She is known all over the globe for her impeccable fashion sense that is based mostly on bohemian chic. Besides that, she is active in the fields of both music and film – Zoe has her own band called Lolawolf on the one hand, whereas on the other one she is a star of Divergent franchise. What is important is the fact that she successfully maintains a balance between these two worlds.
It can definitely be said that Brooklyn is British showbiz royalties heir, because the fact that he is the oldest son of David and Victoria Beckham simply speaks for itself. With his dad being a professional athlete, and mom a former pop idol, it seems that there are infinite possibilities on young Brooklyn’s hands. However, he seems to have chosen the fashion industry, since his newest role includes him snapping models for Burberry’s fashion campaigns. Yes, he works as a photographer for this prominent brand. Good job, B!
Jaden can already be considered as an A-list star, since both of his parents are very gifted and admired in the film industry. In fact, little Jaden was a co-star in his dad’s movies After Earth and Pursuit of Happiness, where we could see that he inherited some of Will’s indisputable talent.
Today, at the age of 17, he is mostly an actor and a rapper, and he even rapped with Justin Bieber in “Never Say Never”. Jaden also became the new face of Louis Vuitton’s womenswear, which is a truly groundbreaking move. He apparently advocates eccentric and ‘genderless’ fashion. This kid really means business!
Having an ultra-popular parent(s) while growing up may be a double-edged sword, and many kids haven’t managed to live up to their parents’ fame and popularity. However, these five definitely did a great job, which made them recognised worldwide. Of course, their family names have certainly played a big role in that process, but they are more than just mummy and daddy’s little boys and girls – they are true stars who deserve to be admired for their success.
