Well, I'm sure there are a ton of perks though. Exotic vacations. Extravagant gifts. Movie premiere invites.
But, would you really want to be stuck in the suffocating shadow of your brother or sister your entire life? Your identity, everything about you, would be stripped away forever. You would never escape it. The world would only know you as a footnote.
Well, here are five siblings who have decided to step outside of that shadow.
Holy. Fucking. Gorgeous.
This is Emma Watson's younger brother, Alex. I know she's 23 so I'm really hoping he's legal. Otherwise my thoughts aren't.
When his sister played Hermoine in the Harry Potter movies, he played an extra.
And now he's a high-fashion model.
Unfortunately, there isn't much useful information about Alex online. The only "biography" I could find was super creepy fan fiction claiming Alex had been sexually abused by his uncle and forced to consume nothing but rain water for 30 hours as a child. It's a delightfully disturbing tale, if you want to read it here.
But I don't mind not knowing much about Alex. Photos tell a thousand words. And his photos are telling me things I can't print here.
Her sister, Beyonce, is a diva. But Solange is an artist.
A musician in her own right, Solange has a more indie-like vibe that can be felt through her music and videos. While Beyonce is simply an untouchable Hollywood icon, her little sister is definitely like the cool girl at the party you really, really want to hang out with instead.
I kind of have a crush on her.
I'm obsessed with her hair.
And her style is ridiculous. She's kind of like the Edie Sedgwick of our generation. Quirky. Playful. Chic. But still approachable.
The 26-year-old has a nine-year-old son from a teenage marriage. And while she doesn't support teenage pregnancy, the devoted mom said she wouldn't trade her experience for anything in the world.
Now that's class.
You can't get any more famous than Brad Pitt. Which is why I find his brother, Doug, so fascinating.
Instead of sulking in his older brother's gorgeous shadow, the all-American Doug has made his family extremely proud in a different way.
The father-of-three is one of the most prominent businessmen in the Midwest and he is also one of the most influential philanthropists in the world.
His Springfield, Missouri based computer company just celebrated 22 years of service. He's earned every local business award the city could possibly bestow. And when he's not busy boosting Springfield's economy, he's giving back to the community.
He donates a TON of his time towards helping the homeless and disadvantaged children in the Springfield area.
In 2010, he was named the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Republic of Tanzania. The changes he has made there are astronomical and honestly, I can't even list them all here.
Oh, and did I mention that a couple years ago, Doug became the first American to descend Mount Kilimanjaro on a mountain bike? And that his good-natured humor earned him a viral video earlier this year?
The guy is a legitimate bad ass.
While her younger brother, Robert, has been captivating the hearts of teenage girls around the world, 30-year-old Lizzy has been pursuing a music career.
Who needs vampires when you have vocal chops?
The gorgeous blonde has performed with the UK band Aurora and the German duo Milk & Sugar.
Her vocals can also be heard on various Twilight soundtracks.
She's garnered a devoted fan base in Europe, thanks to her famous brother. Many of his female fans attend her events, not only because she's super cool, but because he often attends to watch her perform.
I'm sure being a stunner has helped her career as well, famous brother or not.
He's a stone cold hunk. No question about it. And, he's an actor. Basically, Dave is a cooler and younger version of his older brother, James.
I can live with that.
Surprisingly, it took a while for Dave to catch his break in Hollywood. Only a handful of his films have made waves, such as Superbad, 21 Jump Street, and Warm Bodies.
Riding on the coattails of his big brother in the movie industry couldn't have been easy. After all, even though James Franco is 35, he looks 28. And that's the age Dave is going to be in June. They're probably going after the same types of roles.
Fortunately, it looks like Dave's luck in Hollywood is improving.
His next movie, Now You See Me, is a bank heist thriller set to be released next month. It also stars Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson.
Not bad, Dave, not bad.
So what do you think of these superstar siblings? Which one is your favorite?
