Some celebrity siblings, like Dylan and Cole Sprouse, Noah and Miley Cyrus, Mackenzie and Maddie Ziegler, Jake and Logan Paul or Ethan and Grayson Dolan, are legit goals. They’re constantly posting together and interacting online, and fans are living for it! But other celebrity brother and sister pairs are much more low-key about their relationship. Yep, it turns out, there are tons of stars who are secretly related, and we had no idea!
Just take Peyton Clark and Acacia Brinley, for example. Did you guys know that the I Didn’t Do It star and the influencer were brother and sister?! We sure didn’t! What about Katherine and Josephine Langford? Yep, we were shocked when we discovered that the 13 Reasons Why actress and the After alum were sisters! And let’s not forget Six Sense‘s Haley Joel Osment and Hannah Montana legend Emily Osment! Wow, we are seriously shook over these siblings.
After the internet found out that Katherine and Josephine were related, people freaked out. When chatting with W Magazine in April 2019, Josephine revealed the she and her sibling never talk about their professional lives when they’re together. “Everyone asks me that, and honestly, the answer is no,” she explained. “Not to sound arrogant, but we both sort of know what we’re doing.”
She also touched on their relationship during a chat with Refinery29 that same month. “We both got into acting on our own, completely separately, with nothing to do with the other one,” Josephine added. “We both grew up in this family, with parents that weren’t particularly creative, and were both interested in creative things.”
Unlike Josephine and Katherine, former Disney stars Laura and Vanessa Marano have frequently collaborated together, like on the movie Saving Zoë.
“We are loud, opinionated, outspoken. But I think that was what made us a great team,” the Austin & Ally star told J-14 exclusively in March 2020. “It was amazing but it was challenging because we were producing the movie too so we literally did not sleep. But it’s a super serious movie. It’s about a topic that I think effects a lot of young women and young people in general. I’m really proud to have been able to make that movie.”
As it turns out, there’s actually a ton of stars who are related, but we bet you never knew it! Scroll through our gallery to uncover all the other surprise celebrity sibling pairs.
