16 Unexpected Photos Showing What the Children of Famous Parents Look Like

When Tom Hanks arrives at the premiere of a movie with his son Chet, anyone might wonder who his young friend is. Being the son or daughter of a celebrity is probably not easy, so these offspring may feel lucky to not be a photocopy of their ultra-recognizable parents. Sometimes it could be better to inherit their talent, rather than their faces.

Here at Bright Side, we have collected some striking cases that show genetics are sometimes capricious.
