All in the family!: 5 pairs of celebrity siblings we love to love (PHOTOS)
1. Raini Rodriguez and Rico Rodriguez
21-year-0ld Raini Rodriguez, who is known for her role as “Trish” in Disney Channel’s “Austin and Ally”, shares more than just a last name with her brother Rico. Raini and Rico, who is popular for his role as “Manny Delgado” in ABC’s “Modern Family”, share immense on-screen talent and the innate ability to make audiences laugh.
Rico Rodriguez is 16 years old and despite being Raini’s younger brother, each of these Rodriguez’s can surely hold their own in the world of television.
However, as of late Raini has been refocusing some of her efforts towards film. She recently gave life to “Maya Blart” for the second time and starred alongside lead actor Kevin James in “Mall Cop 2”. We wonder if Raini’s as protective of her brother Rico as she is of Kevin James, who plays “Paul Blart” her dad in the movie. Raini, whose sweet personality is often reflected through Twitter posts in which she calls Kevin James her favorite T.V. dad is surely protective of both!
2. David Arquette and Patricia Arquette
A performance by an Arquette can sure pack a punch! Whether it’s David Arquette’s fearless cop in “Scream” or Patricia Arquette’s award winning roles in the likes of films such as “Boyhood”, it’s clear that when an Arquette is on the cast, it’s definitely worth watching!
46-year-old Patricia Arquette, who touched the hearts of women all across the nation when she spoke out in favor of equal pay at the Academy Awards is now busy penning a memoir. Her book which is currently untitled will touch upon her “unconventional family” , single parenthood and her life in Tinsel Town. Meanwhile, brother David Arquette hasn’t been experiencing the best of luck, he recently made headlines for an alleged scuff with Justin Bieber at Arquette’s nightclub Omnia in Sin City.
However, David Arquette later called in to The Howard Stern Show to candidly tell his version of that night’s events confessing…“I should never do this, I’m never going to pull this card again, but I did. And I said, ‘Yo bro, I know you’re kicking me out. I didn’t mean to offend you, my sister just won the Oscar so don’t get too big in your britches!”
Awww, David! We guess being a proud brother especially comes in handy at the moment of an unexpected verbal dispute.
3. Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning
Dakota Fanning, 21, captivated America’s heart in 2001 at the age of seven with her breakthrough performance in “I Am Sam” alongside Sean Penn. She’s been the nation’s sweetheart ever since and has gone on to perform in films “War of the Worlds” and the “Twilight” saga. Her 16-year-old younger sister, Elle Fanning, followed in her footsteps and has appeared on the big screen in films “Super 8” and “Maleficent”.
Both Fannings are currently busy at work on other projects, demonstrating that acting talent and good looks aren’t the only traits these sisters share since both also have jam-packed production schedules. And while you can catch Dakota Fanning in director Richard Laxton’s “Effie Gray” in theaters now, Elle Fanning is working on director Nicolas Winding Refn’s flick “The Neon Demon” in Los Angeles.
The careers of both, Dakota and Elle Fanning, show no signs of slowing down and we couldn’t be happier about it.
4. Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth
Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth and Chris Hemsworth! Ay! What can we say about these two?!! The brothers might just possibly be the hottest pair of brothers in Hollywood. At Press Pass Latino, we’re unsure anyone would debate us on this but if you can find a hotter pair of brothers in Hollywood let us know. 25-year-old Liam and older brother, 31-year-old Chris, have more than captured the attention of all their female fans with roles in action films such as “Thor”, “Star Trek”, and “The Hunger Games” and “The Expendables”.
The Australian siblings are constantly making headlines, sometimes for their movie performances and other times for their rumored love interests. While Chris is happily married to Spanish star Elsa Pataky and welcomed twins Tristan and Sasha in late 2014, after Liam’s infamous break up with singer Miley Cyrus he has yet to confirm any new relationship.
5. Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jake Gyllenhaal, are in our humble opinion, one of the most talented brother and sister duos in Hollywood right now. Maggie Gyllenhaal, 37, starred in “The Dark Knight” and “White House Down” and brother Jake Gyllenhaal has appeared in “Broke Back Mountain” and “Source Code” among many others. Both have established themselves as household names in homes across America and rightfully so.
Maggie Gyllenhaal recently won the Golden Globe award for Best Performance for her role in “The Honourable Woman” and Jake, 34, won an MTV Movie Award for Best Male Performance for his role in “Broke Back Mountain” in 2006, that same year he also won an MTV Movie Award for “Best Kiss”. Hmmm…we’re not mad at that one…AT ALL. However, his 2015 performance in “Nightcrawler” was snubbed by the Oscars, something which made many fans and critics very upset.
Just comes to show though, talent runs in the family!
