Having successful parents is dope. You get millions and millions of money and you get all the toys and candies all you want. Eventually you will get all the clothes and girls or boys you want simply for being a child of someone famous.
It could bomb, too. When your parent is the greatest, there really is no room for you above them, is there?
Then there are some who defy the odds and actually manage to somehow push the ceiling higher to make room for themselves.
10. Kate Hudson
Parent: Goldie Hawn
Kate Hudson is one of the most prolific actresses there is in Hollywood. No one can deny her box office power either.
Goldie Hawn was one of the prettiest faces in showbusiness, Hudson is one of the most talented.
9. Zak Starkey tie with Peyton Manning and Eli Manning
Parent: Ringo Starr of The Beatles
I know, I know. No one can be successful than The Beatles. However, if you take Ringo as an individual, I would say Zak has had a better career. He drummed for two of the most successful bands in history – Oasis and The Who. He is still drumming for The Who.
That is more than 3 decades of drumming.
Archie Manning was a NFL quarterback with the New Orleans Saints for many years, but had no NFL championship ring.
However, both of his sons, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning, have won an NFL Championship and a Super Bowl MVP award.
Both Peyton and Eli remain humble despite the “NFL pedigree”.
8. Michael Douglas
Parent: Kirk Douglas
Two academy awards for Best Actor. Kirk wasn’t so bad in his prime but two Oscars. Dope!
7. Kiefer Sutherland
Kiefer Sutherland had one of the rarest accomplishment of an actor. He experienced two primies in his life. He was a part of the brat pack in the early 90s(?) and another one with his 24 series.
What else can a father ask for?
6. Enrique Iglesias
Parent: Julio Iglesias
Julio had one hit in the international scene, To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before. Enrique is still making one album after another. The woman in his arms isn’t so bad either.
