It is common for the son or daughter of a celebrity to follow in their parent’s footsteps and work in the entertainment industry. And most of these young actors co-exist with their parents in the acting world but sometimes it is rare for both of their career paths to cross. When they do, it is definitely something special.
Below you will see a collection of kids who co-starred alongside their multi talented parents in a film. Enjoy!
1. Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks in Great Buck Howard
This film featured the beloved Hanks boys and it was a total hit when it was first released in theaters. We really hope they get to work together again soon.
2. Will Smith and Jaden Smith in The Pursuit of Happiness
This powerful movie wouldn’t have had as much depth, if the casting department had gone in a different direction.
