8 Celebs More Successful Than Their Famous Parents (And 7 Disappointments)

The media and fans are sometimes obsessed with the lives of their favorite celebs. Celebrities often steal the headlines with the latest drama from their personal lives. Tabloids love juicy Hollywood scandals featuring love, seduction, broken hearts, and steamy affairs. The only thing that can cause more of a media frenzy than an epic wedding or spectacular divorce is the birth of a child.

It’s not easy being the child of a beloved celebrity. There is great pressure to live up to the reputation their parents have forged. Some rise to the occasion while others have fallen into obscurity. There is always great anticipation when world-famous celebs have a child. The expectation is that the child will someday follow in the footsteps of their superstar parent. Sometimes, those famous genes are passed down to the next generation of superstars. In fact, several of those children have grown up into major Hollywood celebs. Some have even surpassed their famous father or mother and have become an even bigger star. However, not all kids had the same Hollywood endings as the others. Some didn’t live up to their parents’ expectations and found themselves at the center of controversy. Some celebrity children have become famous stars, others are disappointments, and some met a tragic end. Here is a look at 8 Celebs That Are More Successful Than Their Famous Parents and 7 Disappointments.

15. Cameron Douglas – Michael Douglas (Disappointment)

Michael Douglas followed in the footsteps of his famous father, legendary actor Kirk Douglas. Michael created his own legacy and fame in Hollywood. He started his career in the 1970’s, and it has spanned several decades. He won an Academy Award for his role in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. He has starred in several other memorable films, such as Basic Instinct, Traffic, and Ant-Man. However, his son, Cameron Douglas, has struggled to follow his famous father. Cameron has had several run-ins with the law for drug-related offences. In 2009, he was arrested for possession of meth and was sentenced to 5 years in prison. His sentence was extended after he convinced his girlfriend to smuggle heroin to him while under house arrest. In 2016, he was released after serving 7 years with two of those in solitary confinement. At the time of his arrest, Michael took full responsibility for his son’s actions and for “being a bad father.”

14. Lenny Kravitz – Roxie Roker (More Successful)

Lenny Kravitz is a hugely successful singer-songwriter. He tours the world selling out stadiums and tops the music charts. He’s released several critically and commercially acclaimed albums, such as Let Love Rule, Are You Gonna Go My Way, 5, and Lenny. He also branched out into an acting career and appeared in several films, including Precious, The Hunger Games, and The Butler. He inherited his incredible talent from his mother, Roxie Roker.

She was apart of the first interracial couple to be shown on a regular prime time television series. Lenny’s daughter, Zoe Kravitz, is quickly making a name for herself in film and music as well.
