Famous Cousins

You may already know about some famous Hollywood families with successful cousins. Like, Nic Cage, Sofia and Roman Copalla and Jason and Robert Schwartzman. 

But here are some other pairs that may surprise you.

Jenny McCarthy and Megan McCartney

Kyra Sedgwick and Edie Sedgwick

Scott Wolf and Josh Wolf

David Schwimmer and Lacey Schwimmer 

Brook Shields and Glenn Close (second cousins)
BTW, I went to school with Glenn's neice.

Conan O'Brien and Denis Leary

George W Bush and Billy Bush

Henry Wrinkler and Richard Belzer

Lenny Kravitz and Al Roker (second cousins)

Are you ready for my famous cousin? Well, no one in my family is actually famous, but my second cousin (and my best friend growing up) was a Playboy model. She was chosen from thousands of other college student hopefuls for a PAC 10 issue. The best thing is that she's totally sweet, caring, hilarious, and self-deprecating. Why didn't I get some of these genes?!

Jacob's first cousin is also a model. She's been doing runway and print since 2008 after Ford Models discovered her on Myspace through their Supermodel Of The World competition. She is now a client of NEXT Models and the face of Escada's Fall/Winter 2013 campaign.

And now? She's a princess! Not a royal one, but still. She married 41-year old Prince Rahum Aga Khan (who is from a family that was part of the Iranian royal dynasty) in Switzerland last weekend. Kendra Spears is now known as Princess Salwa Aga Kahn. Crazy, right?

I'm related to Al and Leslie Gore and Amelia Earhart by marriage. That's the coolest I get lol!

Weird! Small world! I was just reading an article today about the prince's brother and how he's getting divorced and his wife was an American but moved to NY days before the prince's brothers wedding to another American - a model named Kendra Spears - and since the first woman in the article was so pretty I thought to myself - wonder what that one looks like - and here she is haha.

that's pretty amazing!!
I'm not related to anybody famous, even though I'm related to a lot of people. Dang.

Jen said...

So cool! I didn't know most of these. I don't have any famous cousins. However, my moms cousin is a very famous performer in Austrailia.

I had no idea about most of these.

Sweet model family for both of you!

I'm related to no one famous.

Misty said...

I didn't know David and Lacey were cousins. That just seems funny.

You and Jacob have some HOT cousins.

Melanie Montgomery said...

Wow, crazy! I am related to no one famous. But I once groomed Britney Spears dog. Yup. That's about as good as gets for me, ha.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Hell I didn't know that most of these where cousins, I just never gave it much thought.......even the ones with the same last name.....and there is no one famous in my family let alone royalty

Jo said...

So you are related to royalty by marriage, how cool is that! Do you think you can start using it to your benefit, like say, skipping long lines?

Kate said...

Mind blown by some of these (mostly Henry Wrinkler and Richard Belzer)

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I have no famous cousins... but my mind is blown about some of these. I knew about Jenny and Melissa and Scott Wolf and Josh Wolf.

NO CLUE about Mr. Winkler and Belzer, but I totally get it now.

You've got some pretty family genes in your marriage woman! :)
