Drew Barrymore comes from a big family of actors, and as a result, she has been in the public eye since she was a baby. Her first acting gig was when she was just 11 months old when she appeared in a dog food commercial. She had her breakout role in ‘ET’ in 1982 and has since made a name for herself as one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood.
Drew’s grandfather, John Barrymore, is considered to be the most acclaimed actor in the family. Although of different genders, John and Drew Barrymore’s looks are strikingly similar. John’s dependence on alcohol eventually led him to his death in 1942, at the age of 60. Drew’s father, John Jr., was also to die of complications with his dependence years later, in 2004.
Cameron Douglas: Grandson of Kirk Douglas
It’s no secret to anyone that Kirk Douglas has a very distinct face. His grandson, Cameron, seems to have inherited this trait. We wonder how annoying it gets for Cameron when everyone constantly tells him that he looks like his grandfather. Well, lucky for him, he’s got a grandfather to be very proud of.
Kirk Douglas passed away when he was 104 years old. He was one of the last surviving actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age until his passing. His grandson, Cameron, also seems to have wanted to follow in his father, Michael, and grandfather’s footsteps. He has been in four films to date: "Mr. nice guy", "It Runs in the Family", "National Lampoon’s Adam & Eve", and "Loaded".
Aiden and Jacob: Grandsons of Dave Bautista
Dave Bautista started competing as a wrestler in 1999 and is a six-time world champion. He retired from wrestling in 2019. When he wasn’t tackling other wrestlers to the ground, he was acting. He has starred in "Guardians of the Galaxy", "Blade Runner", and "Avengers", among other films. Dave’s two grandsons, Aiden and Jacob, look very similar to their former wrestler grandfather.
The eldest bears a particularly strong resemblance to Dave. Who knows, maybe his grandchildren will grow up to also become wrestlers and actors. We are sure that Dave would love to root for them.
Anjelica Huston: Granddaughter of Walter Huston
The Hustons are considered royalty in the show business world, with three generations of family members winning an Academy Award. Both Anjelica, her father John, and John’s father, Walter, have won the award. In fact, John and Walter won an award at the same ceremony! Anjelica has acted in "The Grifters and Enemies: A Love Story", "The Addams Family", and many more.
Clearly, Walter has passed down his acting genes to his successors. But, he’s also passed down some physical traits as well. Despite being of opposite genders and two generations apart, it’s clear that Walter has passed on his high cheekbones to his granddaughter.
Jason Ritter: Grandson of Tex Ritter
Jason Ritter’s breakout role was in the films "Joan of Arcadia" and "Parenthood". Jason definitely looks like his father and his country music singing grandfather, Tex Ritter. Tex Ritter was born in 1905, in Texas. Although he went to Law school, he later decided that a career in show business was his calling.
He started off as a singer and later switched to acting in Western films during the 30s. He had two children, Tom and John. After finding out that Tom had Cerebral Palsy, he started a nonprofit organization called United Cerebral Palsy. Jason seems to have acquired his grandfather’s big smile and distinctive nose.
