Unknown brothers and sisters of famous stars

Sibling rivalry can be tough, but when one of you is a famous actor or musician, it must be a real nightmare.

However, over the years some of the top star family seem to have figured it out – like Holly Willoughby and her sister Kelly.

Kelly is the managing director of Holly’s spiritual business in the spirit of Gwent Paltrow Wild Moon, and the 41-year-old This Morning host congratulated her on Saturday to celebrate her 43rd birthday.

Fans were quick to point out how similar the ladies are to each other, but they’re not the only ones.

Here we look at a lot of famous faces with their lesser known siblings… do you see the resemblance?

Tom Cruise and Lee Ann

He remained close to his family during his rise to fame and even has an older sister, Leigh Ann De Wett, 62, as part of his entourage.

Like her brother, she is a member of the controversial Scientology religion and acted as its publicist after his marriage to Katie Holmes fell apart. Currently, she is mainly involved in his philanthropic activities.

He also has sisters Cass Mapother and Marian Mapother.

Emma is one of the most famous British actresses, but her brother may also seem familiar thanks to his work as a model.

The 32-year-old Harry Potter star appeared alongside her brother in a Burberry ad campaign, and the pair look almost identical.

Alex had a cameo in the first film as a student, but after a 2010 fashion campaign with his sister, he stepped back from the public eye.

He is believed to have received his degree from the University of Bristol.

Colin Firth and Jonathan

Being a heartthrob brother must be a bit frustrating, but Jonathan Firth seems to take it all in stride.

Younger brother, 54, also an actor, like Colin. However, he sticks to the small screen and has appeared in Middlemarch, Far from the Madding Crowd and Victoria & Albert.

Although the pair look incredibly similar, Jonathan doesn’t seem to want to follow in his brother’s footsteps as a romantic leader.

And Colin isn’t his only connection to fame – he once shared an apartment with Rufus Sewell.

Victoria Beckham and Louise Adams

It is believed that Victoria and her sister are close and work as mothers.

Being one half of the UK’s most famous couple, it’s easy to forget that Victoria has a family other than David and their brood.

Her sister Louise, 39, is a dead ringer for Posh Spice, 47, but has chosen to stay out of the spotlight.

The younger brother has been married twice and has four children who appear in Victoria’s photographs from time to time.

She spent the pandemic as a supervisor at a Covid testing center.

Louise is delighted with her sister’s decision to spend more time in the UK. She told Now Magazine, “I love that she lives closer to me now. It’s great that our families are together – it’s good.

“We’re both just working moms providing for our families.”

Harry Styles and Gemma

Harry is close to his sister Gemma, a writer and freelance podcaster.

Singer Harry has at least two women on the planet who don’t lust after him – his mom and sister Gemma, 31.

The 28-year-old former One Direction member often takes his older brother and sister with him to events, and the couple is believed to be very close.

She is a freelance writer, host of the Good Influences podcast, and owns a sunglasses brand.

Unlike many other famous siblings, Gemma is very active on her social media and boasts 8.3 million Instagram followers.

Last year, she starred with Harry for Vogue magazine, which only strengthened her reputation.

They posed together for a family portrait that accompanied his interview and photos of him in a dress.

Kimberley Walsh and her siblings, soap opera stars

Kimberly may be the most famous of the Walsh group, but her sisters are pretty famous in their own right.

Amy Walsh appears regularly on Emmerdale as Tracey Metcalf, and Sally in 1997 starred on the same series as troublemaker Lyn Hutchinson for three years.

In fact, Kimberly also has acting genes, and prior to her singing success, she almost landed the role of Mary Connor on Coronation Street.

Now Sally has stepped back from the limelight and is running her own drama school, while Amy is expecting her first child.

Simon Cowell and Nicholas

Simon was close to his younger brother Nicholas, who is a real estate developer, but the couple had a big fight two years ago.

It is not known what caused their rift, but until recently, they did not even talk.

Things are so bad that Nicholas won’t be at Simon’s upcoming wedding to Laura Silverman, despite the music mogul making speeches at his brother’s wedding.

While he may not be as famous as his older brother, Nicholas is very wealthy in his own right as head of the Cowell Group.

Taylor Swift and Austin

Austin is incredibly similar to his famous brother Taylor.

Taylor, 32, is another famous woman with a rather unknown brother.

Austin, 30, is a self-employed actor who has starred in several of his sister’s music videos and even produced one.

He appeared in the 2016 thriller It alongside Pierce Brosnan, but hasn’t starred in anything since 2019.

He bears a striking resemblance to his older brother, which will surely help him land more roles.
