UNITED IN LIFE AND SCREEN!!! Hollywood’s Most Famous Brothers and Sisters

In Hollywood, it’s all about who you know and who better to let you in than your own brother or sister? It’s cute that these siblings have risen to the top of the entertainment industry. For some of these duos, they have also worked on a film or two together. Could there be a little bit of a rivalry between the two? One always has done a little bit better than the other, whether its an extra Academy Award or a high grossing film. In either case, these brothers and sisters have shared the limelight together and even look great side-by-side on the Red Carpet!

The name Fonda is sometimes synonymous with the Hollywood left, especially Jane Fonda. However, both she and her younger brother Peter are amazing actors in their own right, with both receiving multiple Oscar nominations, but Jane nabbed two of them during her lustrous career. The two worked once together in the film, Spirits of the Dead (1968).

Talia Shire and Francis Ford Coppola

Talia Shire and Francis Ford Coppola

If there were ever the Hollywood equivalent of a Mafia family, it would most likely be the Coppolas. Of course this is in some way related to their involvement with one of the best Mafia movies of all time, The Godfather (1972). Francis Ford Coppola directed the great film, and his younger sister, Talia Shire, played the Mafia princess Connie Corleone.
