This Robot Can Make Uncomfortable Eye Contact And Reflect Human Facial Expressions

The concept of a human-like robot is already pretty creepy and unnerving. When you add unbroken eye-contact and human-like expressions which mirror those of the individual presented in front of the robot, however, you get something that is incredibly unsettling. Unfortunately, we could be seeing this disturbing idea come to life in the near future.


Vancouver, British Columbia was the recent host of SIGGRAPH, a convention for robotics, computer graphics, and interactive techniques. At SIGGRAPH, Takayuki Todo brought along his newest creation, the Simulative Emotional Expression Robot (SEER for short).

The SEER is basically a head and neck humanoid that can lock eyes with the nearest person and reflect their facial expression back at them. While this might not sound like much, the circuitry and programming involved are actually incredibly intricate. Aside from a few minor glitches, the SEER executed its goal with impressive accuracy.


For the time being, the SEER can switch between two different modes: imitative and eye contact. In both modes, the robot depends on an internal camera which identifies and records facial features in real time. In imitative mode, SEER can reflect back the positions of the viewers’ eyebrows and eyelids, mirroring the expressions practically without fault.

Every so often, the camera fails to read facial data, causing the robotic face to vibrate or glitch, but for the most part, it’s very accurate. Of course, nothing can perfectly simulate the highly-expressive facial features of real humans, but the SEER comes frighteningly close.


In eye contact mode, the SEER will make uninterrupted eye contact with whichever human is closest. Because the robot is equipped with a delicate, childlike, neutrally sculpted face, along with incredibly realistic eyes, numerous SIGGRAPH attendants reported feeling a surprising amount of empathy towards the SEER.

While Takayuki Todo’s work is strictly an art project for the time being, who knows what the future will hold for the SEER?

13 Stunning Celebrity Children at the Same Age as Their Parents

They are some of Hollywood’s biggest names, but have you met their children yet? Here are celebrity kids that look just as stunning as their parents did at their age.

Cindy Crawford & Kaia Gerber — Age 16

Cindy Crawford is one of the biggest supermodels of all time, and the legendary model’s daughter is following in her footsteps. Kaia Gerber, at age 16, has already had her own Vogue covers and walked the catwalk for major fashion brands.

Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber – Age 16

Christie Brinkley & Sailor Brinkley Cook – Age 19

Christie Brinkley was one of the most iconic models in the 1970s and ’80s, despite being only a teenager when she started out. Even as she’s aged, Christie still looks incredible, traits that her youngest daughter, Sailor, seems to have also inherited. Just as her mom did in her late teens, Sailor has embarked on a modeling career of her own. With looks that are strikingly similar, it’s likely that Sailor will also find fame on her own terms.

Christie Brinkley And Sailor Brinkley Cook – Age 19

Kris Jenner & Kendall Jenner – Age 21

Stories of the Kardashian/Jenner clan are everywhere you turn, but it is one of the younger sisters who has set out to make her own career. Kendall Jenner has become one of the world’s most successful models, even winning the award for Model of the Year in 2017. If you look at her matriarch momager, Kris Jenner, you can see an uncanny resemblance to her daughter from over 40 years ago. There is no denying that Kris is still rocking it in her 60’s, and is probably more glamorous than ever.

Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner – Age 21

Bette Midler & Sophie Von Haselberg – Age 31

With a long career in Hollywood, Bette Midler has earned herself a $230 million net-worth, proving she was one star to look out for. Having Bette Midler as your mother must have been an exciting experience, but that did not mean that Sophie von Haslberg did not want to be like everyone else. The only daughter of the legendary actress and singer decided she wished to make a living on her own and launched her own career. Sophie has since starred in Irrational Man and Ask for Jane.

Bette Midlet and Sophie Von Haselberg – Age 31

Jim Carrey & Jane Carrey – Age 30

Just before reaching the age of 30, Jim Carrey gained recognition in Hollywood for his role in the sketch comedy series, In Living Color. Since then, the comedian has appeared in major hit films and has become one of the biggest names in Hollywood. It seems as though his daughter inherited his captivating smile, and also the desire to have a career in the entertainment world. However, she is not following suit in his father’s acting footsteps, but Jane Carrey is an aspiring singer.

Jim Carrey and Jane Carrey – Age 30

Charles Delevingne & Cara Delevingne – Age 20

She has paved her way as one of the biggest supermodels of the moment, and Cara Delevingne has earned her own fame and fortune thanks to her good looks and famous eyebrows. While Cara has made the big bucks based on her beauty and talents, she has her father to thank for inheriting his thick eyebrows. In fact, Cara and her father, Charles Delevingne, share such a similar resemblance that the young model could be considered the female version of her father.

Charles Delevingne & Cara Delevingne – Age 20

Bob Marley & Ziggy Marley – Age 35

Bob Marley may have passed away over thirty years ago, but the famous singer’s legacy has continued to live on. With hits such as “Jamming”, “One Love”, and “Waiting in Vain”, Marley became one of the best selling artists of all time. Meanwhile, Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley, followed in his legendary father’s footsteps by founding a band called Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. Ziggy also joined his dad’s band, the Wailers, shortly after his passing, as well as, continued with his own solo career.

Bob Marley and Ziggy Marley – Age 35

Lenny Kravitz & Zoë Kravitz – Age 26

When your father is Lenny Kravitz, it is no surprise that you would want to copy his every move. His daughter, Zoë Kravitz, has proven that her father is a legend in her eyes too since, at the age of 26, she was following the same style that he was rocking at the same age. Their matching dreadlocks, clothing, and piercings, as well as, the fact that Zoë is an actress and singer, proves that her parents have certainly inspired her.

Lenny Kravitz and Zoë Kravitz – Age 26

Kate Beckinsale & Lily Sheen – Age 17

Kate Beckinsale may be a successful actress, but there is no missing her gorgeous looks that have been inherited by her teenage daughter, Lily. The daughter of Kate and Michael Sheen may be looking to follow in her parent’s footsteps, but she is already looking like her mother. While Lily has had minor roles in films, she is currently focusing on her education before making her career path decision. With talented genes running in her family, it will be no surprise if she becomes the next big star.

Kate Beckinsale and Lily Sheen – Age 17

Cheryl Ladd & Jordan Ladd – Age 30

The apple certainly didn’t fall far from the tree as far as Cheryl Ladd is concerned. The seasoned actress is best known for her role as Kris Munroe in the classic action series Charlie’s Angels, having replaced Farrah Fawcett from the second season onwards. Then there’s Cheryl’s daughter, Jordan Ladd. While she hasn’t necessarily hit the same heights as her mother, Jordan has had her fair share of success on-screen, having starred in movies such as Never Been Kissed and Death Proof.

Cheryl Ladd & Jordan Ladd – Age 30

Will Smith & Jaden Smith – Age 18

At 22 years old, Will Smith gained recognition for his starring role in the television series, The French Prince of Bel Air. After the show’s six-year success, Smith transitioned to film and has since been ranked as the most bankable star worldwide by Forbes. No surprise, therefore, that his son, Jaden Smith, has inherited his great genes, which include his good looks and impeccable acting skills. Jaden has already performed as an actor and a singer, and he is sure to have a bright future ahead of him.

Will Smith and Jaden Smith – Age 18

Steven Tyler & Liv Tyler – Age 30

When your father is the lead vocalist for the band Aerosmith, it may be daunting even try to follow suit and pursue a singing career. That is probably why we will never know if Liv Tyler can even sing. However, while she may not become the next big rock star, Liv is certainly showing she is a talented, young lady. With her own set of skills and good looks, she has made a living for herself becoming both a model and an actress.

Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler – Age 30

Julio Iglesias & Enrique Iglesias – Age 42

Enrique Iglesias continues to release hit after hit, but did you know that his father is also a Latino icon? That’s right, the handsome singer has a handsome father who was a hit in the 70’s and sold millions of records. Enrique must have aspired to win the many accolades he saw his father win, and he has proven to be famous in his own right becoming one of the biggest Spanish artists in history. Good genes are running in the Iglesias family, that is for sure.

Julio Iglesias and Enrique Iglesias – Age 42

Heather Locklear & Ava Sambora – Age 20

There is no missing Heather Locklear when she appears on screen, as most people are sure to give her a double take thanks to her beautiful hair and striking eyes. At 20-years-old Locklear was a vision of beauty, and it seems as though her daughter, Ava Sambora, has inherited her mother’s good looks. While studying at Loyola Marymount University, Ava is also reportedly pursuing a career as a model. Locklear’s career can certainly be an inspiration for her children, but perhaps not everything should be followed suit.

Heather Locklear and Ava Sambora – Age 20

Pierce Brosnan & Dylan Brosnan – Age 20

Pierce Brosnan has a well-established career in Hollywood, having started acting in the ’80s and been in some of the most prominent box-office hits. After all, he did go on to play the leading role in James Bond, 007, becoming the fifth actor to take on the title role. Meanwhile, his son Dylan is not hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps and play the next James Bond anytime soon. Rather, he has inherited the actor’s good looks and has worked for leading modeling brands such as Burberry.

Pierce Brosnan and Dylan Brosnan – Age 20

Christopher Reeve & Will Reeve – Age 25

His father was the real-life Superman which made him a hero for his son to look up to. However, Will Reeve lost his superhero father when he was just 11 years old, followed by the loss of his mother, Dana, only two years later. Things were not easy for a teenage Will, but he managed to go to college and obtain a degree, for which he was fortunate to afford with thanks to his parent’s great fortune. It also seems as though Will inherited his looks from his father!

Christopher Reeve and Will Reeve – Age 25

Jayne Mansfield & Mariska Hargitay – Age 29

Playing the most popular female character on TV, Olivia Benson, Mariska Hargitay doesn’t seem to feel any shadow of her mother’s fame lingering over her career. Her famous mother, Jayne Mansfield, was a well-known model in her younger years, frequently posing for adult magazines like Playboy. Mariska has certainly inherited her mother’s beauty, even if she’s chosen to pursue a different sort of career in entertainment. While Jayne’s career peaked in her 20s, it would take longer for Mariska to achieve the same level of fame.

Jayne Mansfield And Mariska Hargitay – Age 29

Madonna & Lourdes Leon – Age 21

With her shocking pop hits in the 1980s and beyond, Madonna may not have seemed destined for motherhood, but fans couldn’t get enough of her young family. Madonna may look better than ever in middle age, but her daughter has finally grown up and looks just like her mother did in the years just before she struck fame. Lourdes is following in her iconic mom’s footsteps in more than just her looks, as she’s also a fashion icon in her own right.

Madonna And Lourdes Leon – Age 21

Martin Sheen & Charlie Sheen – Age 20

Given the younger Sheen’s antics, sometimes it can be hard to remember that he comes from a famous family. Father Martin Sheen came into his famous family name after burying his given name, Ramón Gerard Antonio Estévez, in order to make it in Hollywood. Nevertheless, he named his son, Carlos Estevez, who then also changed his name to Charlie in order to become more Hollywood friendly. The pair has worked on several film projects together, making them one of the most recognizable family dynasties.

Martin Sheen And Charlie Sheen – Age 20

Susan Sarandon & Eva Amurri Martino – Age 30

Susan Sarandon has gained high recognition in Hollywood after starring in films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Atlantic City, so it is no surprise that her daughter wished to follow in her famous footsteps. Eva Amurri is Sarandon’s daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Franco Amurri, and she decided to pursue a career as an actress. While Amurri has many more years to catch up with her mother’s time in the entertainment industry, she can already take credit for roles in Californication and Middle of Nowhere.

Susan Sarandon & Eva Amurri Martino – Age 30

Alan Thicke & Robin Thicke – Age 30

Robin Thicke broke records with his 2013 music video for “Blurred Lines,” but this was not Thicke’s first glimpse into the music world. Certainly not, since he has been in the industry for over two decades now, and is also the son of a fellow entertainer. In fact, Robin is the son of Growing Pains actor, Alan Thicke, who was also a notable host in his prime. Unfortunately, the actor died in 2016, but Robin can continue the Thicke legacy and their work within the entertainment industry.

Alan Thicke and Robin Thicke – Age 30

Reese Witherspoon & Ava Elizabeth Phillippe – Age 18

Reese Witherspoon has proven her worth in Hollywood having starred in Legally Blonde, Walk the Line, and Big Little Lies. However, it seems that there is another lady who could be mistaken for the Academy Award-winning actress, and that will have to be her lookalike daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe. The eldest daughter from Reese’s former marriage is the spitting image of the actress and, at 18 years old, she could certainly follow in her mother’s (and father’s) acting footsteps.

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Elizabeth Phillippe – Age 18

Kate Moss & Lila Grace Moss – Age 14

Kate Moss established herself as one of the biggest names in the modeling industry and, still many years on, she proves why she used to own the catwalk. It is no surprise, therefore, that her stunning looks were passed on to the next generation and given to her daughter, Lila Grace Moss. In fact, the young beauty has already starred on the cover of Italian Vogue and, at just 15 years old, she is sure to continue her success and career as a model.

Kate Moss and Lila Grace Moss – Age 14

Uma Thurman & Maya Thurman-Hawke – Age 19

She starred in famous hits such as Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, so you are sure to have heard of or recognize the successful actress, Uma Thurman. Having established herself in Hollywood, Thurman’s resume also shows a career in modeling. With such beautiful looks, it is no surprise Thurman was wanted within the modeling industry, and the same can be said for her lookalike daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke. Maya is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her mother in both modeling and acting.

Uma Thurman and Maya Thurman-Hawke – Age 19

Donald Sutherland & Kiefer Sutherland – Age 51

Kiefer Sutherland is a well-known actor in Hollywood and is well-known for his leading role in the TV hit, 24. While he has certainly done well for himself and is showing no signs of slowing down during his 50’s, there is someone he must have been inspired by to follow this path. That great man would be his own award-winning father, Donald Sutherland, who began his career in 1962 and has appeared in films such as The Hunger Games franchise, Ordinary People, and Citizen X.

Donald Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland – Age 51

Clint Eastwood & Scott Eastwood – Age 30

He is an Academy Award winner and multi-millionaire, but that does not mean that Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott, got an easy pass into the entertainment business. In fact, the famous director and actor made his son earn both his college money and acting gigs on his own, which did involve having small parts in some of his dad’s films. He has since starred in The Fate of the Furious and has an enjoyable net worth to his name, which he can say he earned himself.

Clint Eastwood and Scott Eastwood – Age 30

Meryl Streep & Mamie Gummer – Age 31

Her mom is one of the most famous women in the world, who has a world record of 21 Academy Award nominations, of which she has won three. Therefore, it is no surprise that her daughter, Mamie Gummer, must feel the pressure to follow in the exact footsteps of her mother. While reaching the same status as her mother is one of the more challenging goals in life, she has followed suit to become an actress and has already landed herself TV and film roles.

Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer – Age 31

Jude Law & Rafferty Law – Age 21

British actor, Jude Law, has made a name for himself across the pond after starring in a run of successful hit films over the years. It also does not hurt that Law is kind on the eyes, allowing the audience to fall in love with him for more than his acting skills. Good news is that Law’s handsome genes have been passed onto his son who he shares with actress Sadie Frost. At 21 years old, Rafferty Law has already modeled for luxury brands including Dolce & Gabbana.

Jude Law and Rafferty Law – Age 21

Melanie Griffith & Dakota Johnson – Age 25

Dakota Johnson has been starring as Ana Steele for the last three years, appearing on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise. However, she is not just another aspiring actress who won her first acting role in the film. Rather, she has been very familiar with the entertainment industry since she is the daughter of 80’s power couple, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. In fact, her first acting gig was in 1999, and we’re sure she has had some very good acting advice from her talented parents.

Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson – Age 25

Jack Nicholson & Ray Nicholson – Age 26

For over 60 years, the legendary Jack Nicolson has been performing in the entertainment industry. At 26, however, Nicolson was not having much luck with his acting career and took to working behind the camera. Fast forward some years, and he has been nominated for 12 Academy Awards, making him the most nominated male actor in the Academy’s history. Perhaps this is why his son Ray chose to follow suit and become an actor, as well as, an assistant director. Hopefully, the Nicolson name is only destined for success.

Jack Nicholson and Ray Nicholson – Age 26

Maria Shiver & Katherine Schwarzenegger – Age 23

If you have seen the children of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his former wife, Maria Shiver, then you would know that they certainly have very good-looking offspring. Their gorgeous daughter Katherine is not showing off her stunning beauty like her siblings, however, and is preferably living away from the limelight. Having watched her father dominate the big screen over the years, it seems that Katherine has chosen not to follow suit. Rather, she is a writer who is more interested in becoming an author than an actor.

Maria Shiver and Katherine Schwarzenegger – Age 23

Jerry Stiller & Ben Stiller – Age 39

While Ben Stiller is undoubtedly a household name amongst film fans, some don’t realize that he actually comes from very talented stock. His father, Jerry Stiller, is a prolific figure in the world of comedy with his late wife Anne Meara. He also had key roles in shows such as Seinfeld and The King of Queens. Ever since Ben became a blockbuster king, he has brought father Jerry along for the ride in some of his movies such as Zoolander and The Heartbreak Kid.

Jerry Stiller and Ben Stiller – Age 39

Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow – Age 44

While Gwyneth Paltrow has gone on to become one of the most recognized names in Hollywood, she learned a lot from her mother, Blythe Danner. The seasoned actress has been in the film industry for nearly 50 years and has starred alongside Woody Allen in a handful of his movies. Of course, Danner received a lot of buzz after starring alongside the likes of Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller in the comedy film series Meet The Parents.

Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow – Age 44

Stellan Skarsgard & Alexander Skarsgard – Age 34

While Stellan Skarsgard’s reputation in Hollywood has slowly developed over the years, his sons seem to have blown up at a much younger age. Bill Skarsgard might be a huge blockbuster hit with his role as Pennywise the Clown in It: Chapter 1 and 2, however, his brother Alexander is also making a big splash in the world of acting right now. With big roles in shows such as True Blood and Big Little Lies, Alexander is here to stay.

Stellan Skarsgard and Alexander Skarsgard – Age 34

Damon Wayans & Damon Wayans Jr. – Age 30

The Wayans are undoubtedly one of the most prolific families in the world of comedy. While Damon Wayans has been very successful with his own sitcom My Wife and Kids, his son, Damon Wayans Jr. has also landed some big roles in TV over the last few years. Although the show Happy Endings ended up getting canceled after a couple of seasons, it was critically acclaimed and Wayans Jr. had a big part to play in its success.

Damon Wayans and Damon Wayans Jr. – Age 30

Peggy Lipton & Rashida Jones – Age 26

When you are the child of a multimillion-dollar record producer and a model, you are simply destined for success. This is what happened for Rashida Jones, who ended up becoming famous in her own right, after being brought up by parents Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones. She has gone on to star in numerous movies, such as I Love You, Man, and has been a main in shows such as Parks and Recreation and Angie Tribeca. Sadly, Rashida’s mom Peggy died in 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

Peggy Lipton and Rashida Jones – Age 26

John Lennon & Sean Lennon – Age 31

It must be difficult following in the footsteps of one of the greatest musicians to ever live. And while Sean Lennon might never be as famous as his late father John, he is sure to be stopped in the street every once in a while for his resemblance to The Beatles legend. He looked enough like his father already, but the fact that Sean also wears similar glasses to his “old man” definitely hits home how much they look alike.

John Lennon and Sean Lennon – Age 31

David Beckham & Brooklyn Beckham – Age 17

There was a time when David Beckham was one of the greatest soccer players in the world. While he was winning trophies for the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid, he was also busy being one of the most marketable celebrities on the planet. He also started to build a family with Spice Girl wife Victoria. His firstborn, Brooklyn, is the double of “Golden Balls.” It definitely helps that both of his parents are fairly good-looking individuals.

David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham – Age 17

Eric Roberts & Emma Roberts – Age 27

The Roberts name is no stranger in Hollywood, mainly thanks to America’s sweetheart, Julia, who has captivated the world with her acting talents and captivating smile. Her brother, Eric was the first member of the family to set his sights on Hollywood in the mid 70’s and has since garnered over 400 credits. Meanwhile, his daughter Emma started off her career in 2004 in Nickelodeon’s, Unfabulous, and has since managed to surpass her father when it comes to her net value.

Eric Roberts and Emma Roberts – Age 27

Lisa Marie Presley & Riley Keough — Age 29

The only child to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Lisa Marie Presley is a singer-songwriter, issuing three albums of her own. Although she followed her father’s footsteps, Lisa’s daughter — Riley Keough — decided to go down the path of modeling and acting, which is still in the entertainment industry nonetheless. In any event, Keough is best known for her appearances in films like Magic Mike and Logan Lucky. She also gained prominence for her role in George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. We think Elvis would be very, very proud…

Lisa Marie Presley & Riley Keough — Age 29

Goldie Hawn & Kate Hudson — Age 25

Goldie Hawn, aside from being Hollywood royalty, is an American actress who rose to fame on the NBC sketch comedy program Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. She then went on to receive the Academy Award and Golden Globe for her performance in the 1969 romantic-comedy Cactus Flower. Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson, is no stranger to the spotlight. While she started her career as a dancer, she ultimately shifted to acting on both television and film. Not only did she inherit her mother’s talent, receiving awards of her own throughout the years, but she also seems to have taken after Hawn in the looks department — same facial features and golden locks.

Goldie Hawn & Kate Hudson — Age 25

Kate Capshaw & Jessica Capshaw — Age 31

Kate Capshaw, a.k.a. Mrs. Spielberg is a retired actress best known for her performance as Willie Scott in the 1984 action film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. She went on to star in other movies including Dreamscape and The Love Letter. Although Kate married Steven Spielberg in ’91, she did have one child — Jessica — from her previous marriage. You may recognize the blonde bombshell as she played Dr. Arizona Robbins on the medical drama TV series Grey’s Anatomy from 2009-2018. And with that, we think it’s safe to say that Kate passed her talent and good looks onto her daughter…

Kate Capshaw & Jessica Capshaw — Age 31

Billy Joel & Alexa Ray Joel — Age 25

Alexa Ray Joel is the daughter of Billy Joel and supermodel Christie Brinkley. Considering that her father is a musical genius, it comes as no surprise that Alexa took after him. While she may not have inherited her mom’s qualities, Alexa certainly grew up with her dad’s musical talents. By the age of 19, she had performed her first live show. Now, at 34 years old, Alexa has her own album and several singles to her name. Aside from all of that, though, doesn’t Alexa totally take after Billy in the looks department also? From their deep-set eyes to their full lips, there’s no doubt that Alexa is the piano man’s daughter.

Billy Joel & Alexa Ray Joel — Age 25

Denzel Washington & John David Washington — Age 33

If you grow up with an award-winning actor father like Denzel Washington, you’re just automatically destined for greatness. That’s why it’s really no surprise that John David Washington, Denzel’s oldest son, inherited both his father’s good looks and acting skills. His first experience in the entertainment industry was when he was just seven years old. He appeared as a student in Spike Lee’s 1992 film Malcolm X, which Denzel starred in. Before returning to acting in 2015, though, John played professional football. Today, he’s best known for his role in the HBO comedy series Ballers.

Denzel Washington & John David Washington — Age 33

Celine Dion & Rene-Charles Angelil — Age 18

With hits like “The Power of Love” and “My Heart Will Go On,” there’s no denying that Celine Dion has been making waves in the industry since 1980. Her eldest son (pictured on the far right), René-Charles Angélil, may only be the tender age of 18 but even with that, it’s clear that he’s certainly inherited his mother’s talent. In the last couple of years, René has established himself as a rapper. He goes by the pseudonym Big Tip and has posted a ton of songs to a SoundCloud account. While some of the songs are covers, he’s also released three of his own original tunes called “The Kid,” “The Apple,” and “Never Stop.”

Celine Dion & Rene-Charles Angelil — Age 18

John Aniston & Jennifer Aniston — Late 30s

Sure — Jennifer Aniston has undoubtedly made herself a household name over the years but she may have had some help along the way. Aside from inheriting her glowing skin and Greek features from her father, John, she also happened to get his acting skills. That’s right, guys. John Aniston was in the industry long before Jen was even born. He’s best known for his role as Victor Kiriakis on the NBC daytime drama series Days of Our Lives.

John Aniston & Jennifer Aniston — Late 30s

Lebron James & Lebron James Jr. — Age 14

A player for the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron is often regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time. He married his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, got married in 2013 and now share three children together. LeBron James Jr. or ‘Bronny’ seems like he’s following in his father’s footsteps. He’s apart of the Amateur Athletic Union‘s North Coast Blue Chipsbasketball team.

Lebron James & Lebron James Jr. — Age 14

Kim Kardashian West & North West — Age 5

Kim may have had a more or less scandalous start but there’s no denying that she’s established herself throughout the years. Now one of the most successful media personalities and businesswomen in all of Hollywood, Kim is known and praised for her curves. She stepped into the spotlight when ‘skinny’ was the most fashionable thing around. She gave confidence to all women out there with bigger bottoms and heavier chests, showing them to love themselves exactly as they are. With that, we have no doubt that Kim is instilling the same values in her own daughter.

Kim Kardashian West & North West — Age 5

Kelly Ripa & Lola Consuelos — Late Teens

Named by The Hollywood Reporter as one of the “Most Powerful People in Media,” Kelly Ripa is an actress and talk-show host.

Kelly Ripa & Lola Consuelos — Late Teens

Janet Leigh & Jamie Lee Curtis — Age 25

Jamie Lee Curtis has been known as the scream queen of Hollywood since her days as Laurie Strode in John Carpenter’s horror film Halloween.

Janet was most recognized as the doomed Marion Crane in Alred Hitchcock’s 1960 Psycho. Tony Curtis achieved the height of his popularity during the fifties and sixties, including the time he starred in Houdini alongside his then-wife, Janet.

Michael J. Fox & Sam Michael Fox — Age 23

Halle Berry & Maceo Robert Martinez — Age 5

Halle Berry is easily one of the most talented and beautiful people to ever grace the Hollywood screen. An award-winning actress, Berry made her breakthrough for her performance in the romantic comedy Boomerang. And while she’s had quite the successful career, she hasn’t been as blessed in the love department. Still, she had a son during her third marriage named Maceo Robert Martinez. Although he’s only seven years old, it wouldn’t come as a shock if he followed in his mother’s footsteps one day…

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson & Simone Alexandra Johnson — Age 18

Hollywood’s hunkiest of hunks, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is an American actor, producer, and former professional wrestler. One of the highest-grossing box-office stars of all time, Johnson has had quite the exciting career(s). He’s a father to three daughters — Simone, Jasmine, and Tina. Simone is Johnson’s eldest daughter and is totally making her father proud by following in his footsteps. Now 18 years old, Simon has started training with WWE, becoming the first fourth-generation superstar in WWE history!

Gwyneth Paltrow & Apple Martin – Age 15

There is no better saying than, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” when describing the resemblance between these two. Apple is the eldest of two of Gwenyth’s children from her marriage to Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Although it may seem like the two just look like mother and daughter, there is no denying that at age 15 the two look very similar.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin – Age 15

Dhani Harrison & George Harrison – Age 24

Dhani Harrison looks just like his father, the late great George Harrison of Beatles fame, who went on to a successful musical career even after the band broke up. Dhani’s name reflects the inspiration Indian music had on him — dha and ni are the sixth and seventh notes in Indian music’s equivalent of solfege, respectively. Proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Dhani is also a musician who helped complete his father’s last album, Brainwashed. This album went on to win a Grammy.

Dhani Harrison & George Harrison – Age 24

Chris Pine & Robert Pine – Age 35

Robert Pine is best known as Sgt. Joseph Getraer on CHiPs, and the rest of his TV credits are too long to list here. His son, Chris Pine, looks a lot like his father. Younger generations might not recognize Robert, yet Chris is famous for playing many high-profile movie roles. He was Captain Kirk in the Star Trek reboot from 2009 to 2016, Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, and (most recently) Robert the Bruce in Outlaw King.

Chris Pine & Robert Pine – Age 35

Georgia May Jagger & Mick Jagger – Age 25

Georgia May Jagger takes after her father, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. Despite looking more like him than some of Jagger’s other kids, she has followed in the footsteps of Jerry Hall, her American model mother, becoming a model and designer when she came of age. Georgia May moved to New York in 2010 to continue her fashion career, although she notably appeared at the closing ceremony at the 2012 Olympics in London as a representative of British fashion, alongside Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.

Georgia May Jagger & Mick Jagger – Age 25

Jason Ritter & John Ritter – Age 30

John Ritter sadly passed away following a misdiagnosis in 2003, but you should recognize him from movies like Bad Santa, his last live-action flick that was dedicated to his memory. Jason Ritter, his son, has been keeping the memory of his father alive by following in his footsteps as an actor. You can definitely see a family resemblance. Most recently, Jason voiced Ryder in Frozen II. He received Emmy Award nominations for roles in Parenthood and in Tales of Titans.

Jason Ritter & John Ritter – Age 30

Ireland Baldwin & Kim Basinger – Age 24

When you look at her face, you can see that Ireland Baldwin has a lot in her from her father, Alec Baldwin, yet there’s a good reason she’s most often compared to her mother, Kim Basinger. Just like her, Ireland became a model and actress, although substance abuse issues and rehabilitation programs have forced her to take breaks from her modeling career. As far as acting is concerned, Ireland debuted playing the daughter of Basinger’s character in Grudge Match, a 2013 film featuring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro.

Ireland Baldwin & Kim Basinger – Age 24

Ashley Judd & Naomi Judd – Age 30

Ashley Judd is the younger sister of Wynona Judd, who became famous as part of the mother-daughter duo The Judds, and they look alike. The Judds sold more than 20 million albums before they disbanded in 1991, after Naomi announced doctors had diagnosed her with Hepatitis C. Although Ashley wasn’t part of her family’s Grammy-winning ensemble, Ashley became famous as an actor who played in movies like Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Ashley is also an activist heavily involved in humanitarian work.

Ashley Judd & Naomi Judd – Age 30

Jakob Dylan & Bob Dylan – Age 33

Bob Dylan doesn’t need much of an introduction, as the most important figure in folk music of the past 50 years, but many might not realize that his son, Jakob Dylan, is famous in his own right as the frontman of The Wallflowers. It might seem like Jakob’s two Grammys are dwarfed by his father’s achievements and accolades, yet it’s undeniable that Jakob has carved a niche out for himself. Not one to rest on his father’s name for fame, he made it as part of a band.

Jakob Dylan & Bob Dylan – Age 33

Robert Downey Jr. & Robert Downey Sr. – Age 34

The Robert Downeys look similar, particularly around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Looking at them at around the same age, they look like brothers. Robert Jr. nailed roles like Tony Stark, a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is just one example of his great success as an actor, but it’s important to note that he was following his father into the movie industry. Robert Sr., a multitalented actor, producer, director, writer, and cinematographer may be most notable for making Putney Swope, a 1969 satirical comedy.

Robert Downey Jr. & Robert Downey Sr. – Age 34

Stella McCartney & Paul McCartney – Age 27

Stella McCartney looks a lot like her father, former Beatle Paul McCartney, yet it’s clear that she’s also the child of her mother, the late Linda McCartney. Stella was actually the inspiration for Paul’s post-Beatles band, Wings, as she was born during an emergency cesarean section. Distraught, Paul waited outside as surgeons performed the operation all the while praying Stella would be delivered “on the wings of an angel.” While Stella didn’t follow her father into music and showbusiness or her mother into photography, she is a noted fashion designer.

Stella McCartney & Paul McCartney – Age 27

Max Irons & Jeremy Irons – Age 32

Max Irons’ father is Jeremy Irons, one of the most accomplished actors around. Jeremy’s one of the few to win an Academy Award for movies, an Emmy for TV, and a Tony for theater, meaning that Max has big shoes to fill. Max has been doing a good job, despite being discouraged in the past from pursuing an acting career by his father. He doesn’t just act, though, as he’s modeled for Burberry, Mango, Macy’s, and more.

Max Irons & Jeremy Irons – Age 32

Dylan Penn & Robin Wright – Age 26

Sean Penn has come a long way since playing Spicoli on Fast Times in Ridgemont High, establishing himself as a superb actor in the ’80s and ’90s, which happened to be the same time future (ex) wife Robin Wright was making a name for herself as a superb actress. When you look at their daughter, Dylan Penn, she looks just a tad bit more like her mother than she does like Sean. Dylan has followed in her parents’ footsteps and become an actress, yet she is most notable for her successful modeling career.

Dylan Penn & Robin Wright – Age 26

Patrick Schwarzenegger & Arnold Schwarzenegger – Age 23

Patrick Schwarzenegger made his film debut at the age of 10 in the movie Benchwarmers. Now in his mid-20s, he’s taken after his father quite a bit. To be fair, he also looks like his mother, Maria Shriver, who is also a member of the prolific Kennedy family, yet he is undeniably his father’s son. Instead of going into writing like his journalist mother, Patrick followed in his father’s footsteps. Not into bodybuilding and weightlifting (although he does look like he keeps in shape), but acting and modeling.

Patrick Schwarzenegger & Arnold Schwarzenegger – Age 23

Willow Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith – Age 19

Willow Smith followed both her father and mother to become a musician-actress, yet she bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother. There’s a fair bit of Will in there, too, and it looks like someone sprinkled his features in there on Jada’s face as a template. They’re also both social activists besides acting and music, although Willow has followed her dad into hip hop. While Jada fronts a heavy metal band, Willow is signed to Jay-Z’s label.

Willow Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith – Age 19

Beyonce & Tina Knowles – Age 32

Although Tina Knowles is probably best known for mothering Beyoncé Knowles, it’s unfair not to include her on this list because of how much her daughter resembles her. Tina has a long, successful career in fashion design and cosmetics that had an influence on her daughter. Tina wrote in a 2002 book that much of Destiny’s Child’s success was due to fashion. Apart from the obvious physical similarities, Beyoncé must get her fleek fashion sense from someone, and that someone appears to be Tina.

Beyonce & Tina Knowles – Age 32

Kirk Douglas & Michael Douglas – Age 30

The Douglas family has proven they are a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood since Kirk and Michael have spent years showing off their talented acting skills. Kirk Douglas, who is currently 101 years old, has had a long career in film. Throughout his 70 years in show business, he appeared in over 50 movies, and it seems his son wished to follow suit. Michael has gone on to appear in too many films to list, and now we wait to see if his son follows suit.

Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas – Age 30

Carrie Fisher & Billie Lourd – Age 23

Billie Lourd is the latest of a Hollywood dynasty dating back to the golden age of Hollywood, with grandparents like the late Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Lourd really resembles her mother, Carrie Fisher, and you can actually see them together onscreen in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, as she played Captain Connex. After Carrie sadly passed away, Lourd filled her spot in The Last Jedi and played Princess Leia in a flashback scene showing her giving R2-D2 the Death Star plans.

Carrie Fisher & Billie Lourd – Age 23

Catherine Deneuve & Chiara Mastroianni – Age 20

Catherine Deneuve is considered to be one of the greatest European actresses of our time. The French beauty became the face of Marianne, France’s national symbol of liberty in 1985. The actress is connected to the famous Dorleac family of actors. So it’s no surprise that she has many acting nominations and awards under her belt. Her daughter, Chiara Charlotte Mastroianni has followed in her family’s footsteps. She is both an acclaimed actress and singer.

Catherine Deneuve & Chiara Mastroianni – Age 20

Candice Bergen & Chloe Malle – Age 34

Candice Patricia Bergen is an American actress and former fashion model who is best known for her portrayal of the title character on CBS’s Murphy Brown. You might also recognize Candice as Shirley Schmidt on Boston Legal. She has starred in an array of big-budget comedy films like Bride Wars and Miss Congeniality. In 1985, she welcomed her first and only child Chloe Malle. Ms. Malle has also done well for herself and currently works as a contributing editor at Vogue Magazine.

Candice Bergen & Chloe Malle – Age 34

Barbi Benton & Ariana Gradow – Age 30

Barbi Benton born Barbara Lynn Klein is an American retired model, actress, TV personality, and singer. She is known for appearing on the cover of her ex Hugh Hefner’s magazine four times over the span of three decades. She retired from show business in the ‘80s to focus on raising her two kids. While not much is known about her daughter Ariana Gradow, she did feature in the TV series The Girls Next Door from 2008-2009.

Barbi Benton & Ariana Gradow – Age 30

Lynda Carter & Jessica Carter Altman – Age 30

Lynda Jean Cordova Carter is an American actress, singer, and model who was crowned Miss World USA in 1972. Her greatest claim to fame came when she landed the role of Diana Prince in the TV series Wonder Woman. Her daughter Jessica also tried her hand acting, as well as singing and hosting. She has guest-starred as a host on shows like The Talk and Access Hollywood. In 2020, she released her latest album entitled No Rules.

Lynda Carter & Jessica Carter Altman – Age 30

Cybill Shepherd & Clementine Ford – Age 20

Cybill Lynne Shepherd is an American actress and former model. She is best known for her roles in The Last Picture Show by Peter Bogdanovich and Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese. In 1979, she gave birth to her only daughter Clementine who ended up following in her mom’s acting footsteps. Her noteworthy roles include starring on Showtime’s The L Word and in the soap opera series The Young and the Restless.

Cybill Shepherd & Clementine Ford – Age 20

Vanessa Paradis & Lily-Rose Depp – Age 20

When Lily-Rose started appearing in photoshoots, the world had to take a double-take, making sure it wasn’t her mother, Vanessa Paradis. Lily-Rose has not one, but two famous parents and they are both gorgeous. Her mother is a French model, singer, and actress. Her dad is none other than Johnny Depp. After 14 years together, her parents split up in 2012. Depp’s parents arranged joint custody of Depp, who divides her time between Los Angeles and Paris.

Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp – Age 20

Elvis Presley & Benjamin Keough – Age 20

Well, he’s not his son, but we couldn’t help but share Elvis Presley’s grandson! Benjamin Keough has made headlines around the world for looking just like his famous grandfather. Both pictured at age 20, Keough is the spitting image of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – it’s uncanny!

Elvis Presley and Benjamin Keough – Age 20

Prince Charles & Prince Harry – Age 30

Prince Harry’s dapper dad was the spitting image of his son back in the day — although it is clear that the genetic influence of Princess Diana did have an effect on the proportions of Harry’s face. In any case, 30-year-old Harry seems to be extremely different to his dad when it comes to his royal legacy — even if they look like twins.

Prince Charles and Prince Harry – 30

Tom Hanks & Colin Hanks – Age 25

When you look like a multi-award winning actor, you must get many mistaken fans asking for your autograph. However, when that person you are being mistaken for is your father, it may not be exactly what you want to hear. As for Colin Hanks, we can imagine he is proud of his famous father who starred in the hit film Forest Gump and is worth millions of dollars.

Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks – Age 25

Faith Hill & Audrey McGraw – Age 18

With one of the most successful country artists of all time as your mom, it’s hard to not try to follow in her footsteps. While her daughter is rarely in the public eye and unrecognizable, Audrey is practically Faith’s mini-me — just with brown hair! The pair were seen together just before Audrey’s birthday at the Versace NYC show and they looked almost like sisters. Audrey shares her parents’ musical genes and we hope to hear her voice one day.
