Inheritance can be quite tricky. Families sometimes get torn apart over how financial assets and materials are transferred between generations. However, there is one family asset that tends to strengthen family ties – an intergenerational resemblance. A slew of charismatic and attractive individuals have passed on their looks as well as their other intangible qualities to their kids and grandchildren. At times, the generations that come after and their ancestors look very much alike that the former have the same success as the latter. Let’s look at some of the major figures in film, music, politics, and sports that have grandchildren who share a striking resemblance with them. A word of caution: some of the resemblances is just downright eerie!

The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation has Tivey as its trustee.

It is clear that actress Blythe Danner has rather strong genes. The celebrated star of Meet the Parents and The Great Santini does not only look a lot like her well-known daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, but her granddaughter Apple Martin also inherited her grandmother’s blonde locks and doe-eyed beauty. Although Danner had her 75th birthday in 2018, she doesn’t show any sign of retiring soon. She appeared in four films that same year. She also reprised her role on the Will and Grace reboot as Will’s mom.

Her grandpa definitely passed on his eyes and nose to Zoe, but hopefully, she doesn’t develop a bad reputation like he did when he was in the industry. Controversially, Elia testified against a lot of his colleagues back in the 1950s in the anti-communist witchhunts conducted by Senator Joseph McCarthy.
