The less famous, lookalike brothers and sisters of the A-List
Ever wondered what Kate Moss’ sister or Taylor Swift’s brother looked like? And did you know that Ryan Gosling had a sister or that Scarlett Johansson had a twin brother? Plus, do their less well-known siblings look like their famous brothers and sisters?
Meanwhile, some celebrity siblings have followed their A-List brothers and sisters into the same industry: Take Kate Moss and her little sister Lottie, for example – the 17-year-old made her debut at Paris Fashion Week, walking in Sonia Rykiel’s autumn/winter 2015 show.
Brad Pitt’s brother Doug however, took a very different career path, despite bearing a striking resemblance to his Hollywood brother, Brad. Successful as a businessman, philanthropist and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Republic of Tanzania, Doug’s a star in his own right.
We’re also obsessed with the celebrities who have twin siblings – like Gisele Bundchen and Scarlett Johansson. Who knew?
Meanwhile, we’ve been introduced to some A-list siblings on the red carpet over the years, too: Peter Nyong’o was Lupita’s date to the Oscars in 2014, where she won Best Supporting Actress for her star turn in 12 Years A Slave – but not one to be outdone on the night, Peter went and photobombed THAT legendary Oscars selfie. *applause*
Some families are quickly accruing showbiz dynasties though… It turns out there’s a third (very handsome) Hemsworth brother out there. Liam and Chris also have a brother called Luke and naturally, in true Hemsworth tradition, he’s an actor as well – in Neighbours, no less.
And finally, did you know that Jared Leto has a brother, Shannon? He’s actually the drummer in their band Thirty Seconds To Mars, FYI.
We’ve delved into the photo archives for you, so have a flick through to see the famous and not-so-well-known siblings of some of your favourite A-Listers. Can you see the family resemblance?

First up, the Olsen sisters were out in full force at the CFDA Awards in June 2016. Ashley, Mary-Kate and their younger sister Elizabeth were joined at the hip as they walked the red carpet, in what we can assume is the Olsen’s The Row collection. Can you see the family resemblance?

I love you so much. #birthday #twinsister #guardianangel #bestfriendintheworld #love”.
