1. Jon Voight/Angelina Jolie

Jon Voight/Angelina Jolie
Both father and daughter have an Oscar here. Angelina Jolie earned hers for Girl, Interrupted and Jon Voight got his for Coming Home. It’s a shame these two don’t speak too much, because we’d love to see them in a movie together.

2. Lloyd Bridges/Beau Bridges/Jeff Bridges

Lloyd Bridges/Beau Bridges/Jeff Bridges
Lloyd Bridges had to be one proud papa. His sons, Beau and Jeff Bridges, have gone on to great success in Hollywood. And when he saw them join forces in The Fabulous Baker boys, well, we think he might have just exploded. Beau is enjoying huge success on TV now and of course Jeff won an Oscar for Crazy Heart and will always be The Dude to us!

3. Goldie Hawn/Kate Hudson

Goldie Hawn/Kate Hudson
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson not only look alike, as many mother and daughters do, but they have had similar careers. Both enjoy success in romantic comedies and both have had success with dramas as well. Although Goldie, she has an Oscar.

4. Ivan Reitman/ Jason Reitman

When it comes to directors and kids, it’s hard to compete with the success of Ivan Reitman and his son Jason. Ivan, of course, directed Ghostbusters and a slew of other fantastic films – including the recent Draft Day. Jason has taken a slightly more serious route and given us the Oscar-nominated Up in the Air, as well as Young Adult and Labor Day.

5. Blythe Danner/Gwyneth Paltrow

Blythe Danner/Gwyneth Paltrow
Blythe Danner and her director husband Bruce gave birth to the woman who has become one of the most popular actresses in the world, Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyn has famously won an Oscar, dated (married and consciously uncoupled) rock stars and movie stars and starred in just a few billion dollar movies (Iron Man). Blythe too has had her share of hits, most notably the Meet the Parents films.

6. Kirk Douglas/Michael Douglas

Kirk Douglas/Michael Douglas
There are legendary families, and there is the father-son tandem of Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas. Kirk is famously one of Hollywood’s golden age’s biggest stars. He was Spartacus for goodness sakes! And Michael, well, he’s had dozens of Hollywood smash hits.
