Celebrity Kids Who Grew Up To Be Gorgeous

Celebrity Kids Who Grew Up To Be Gorgeous

Andy Scott

Their parents have some of the most aesthetic genes on the planet, so it only makes sense that these celebrity daughters grew up to be beautiful and bright. Fair warning: this post is about to make you feel really, really really old. Set your sights on our original video above or read on below.

Reese Witherspoon's oldest daughter, Ava Phillippe, has become the spitting image of her Oscar-winning mother. Witherspoon gushed about her 16-year-old daughter to Us Weekly in 2016, admitting, "She's so much cooler than I am! She's very cutting-edge, and she knows a lot about fashion, and she has her own sense of style, which is amazing." In fact, she's so cool, Witherspoon says she consults her on what to wear our. "We try to kind of confer about new styles," she said. "She tells me whether or not I can wear things."

The genetic combo of parents Sean Penn and Robin Wright has proved lucrative for Dylan Penn's modeling career. She was featured in fashion spreads from Elle to GQ, then switched lanes to try her hand at her parents' craft. She landed the lead role in the horror flick Condemned (2015) as well as indie films Unfiltered and Gen RX. Before you go thinking this career path seems too silver spoon-ish, please note that Dylan's resume also includes a stint delivery pizzas. "I did that for about seven months," a 24-year-old Dylan told The Daily Beast in 2015. "I dropped out of USC after a semester, and my parents told me I was financially cut off. So my godfather owns a pizza place in Westwood by UCLA, and offered me a job. And I delivered pizzas."

Lily-Rose Depp

Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of exes Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, is already following in her mother's modeling footsteps. In 2015, at age 16, she officially became an ambassador for Chanel and the face of the label's Pearl eyewear collection, starred in a Rejjie Snow music video, and kick-started an acting career. Her father spoke about his daughter's star-is-born year in a 2015 interview with The Daily Mail, saying, "What's happening to Lily-Rose is something that I didn't expect to happen this early, that's for sure!…She's been snatched up by Karl Lagerfeld—which is a coincidence, as he spotted her mother when she was the same age, too—and when I see her with make-up and all that stuff, it's really disturbing, because she's a very beautiful girl, and it's all happening so fast."

Hailie Jade Scott Mathers

Eminem's daughter, Hailie—you know, the one he rapped about on "Hailie's Song" in 2002—has become so attractive, she makes headlines just by changing her Twitter profile photo. Even better: she's also got brains to back up her good looks. The high school homecoming queen, who'll turn 20 in 2016, is reportedly attending Michigan State University. According to E! News, she finished high school with a 3.9 GPA and said she owes her success to her parents, who "pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have."

Lourdes Leon


In March 2016, Madonna's daughter, Lourdes Leon, made her modeling debut as one of the faces for Stella McCartney's Pop perfume line. In the campaign, Leon—who apparently goes by "Lola" now—is sporting long lilac hair instead of her typical black locks. She also shows off tattoos on her fingers that read "Mom" and "Dad."

"The campaign marks the first time that the 19-year-old has willfully stepped into the spotlight, after a life spent carefully limiting her contact with the paparazzi and mainstream media," reported Vogue. Leon said she liked the fragrance line's message of self-acceptance. "I go through this struggle myself, [where] women's bodies have been made so public that everyone feels like they need to comment," she said. "I love when someone doesn't pretend to be someone they are not."

It should come as no surprise that Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, already has Vogue wondering if she's modeling's next big thing. Gerber has landed photo shoots with the likes of Steven Meisel and Mario Testino. In February 2016, at age 14, she followed in the footsteps of Gigi Hadid and Suki Waterhouse by posing for the luxury accessories brand Chrome Hearts. If her mom's career is any indication, we have a feeling Gerber will be catching our eye for decades to come.

Ireland Baldwin

Another celebrity kid who grew up to become a model: Ireland Baldwin, aka the daughter of actress Kim Basinger and actor Alec Baldwin. Now signed to DT Model Management—which, coincidentally, also reps Dylan Penn—the former IMG Model has graced the pages of W, Vanity Fair and Elle. Unfortunately, Baldwin's foray into the spotlight has not been a smooth one. She spent a few weeks in rehab in 2015, at age 19, for what People magazine described as "emotional trauma."

Ireland's younger sister, Hailey, is also a fashion model, but celebrity gossip gurus know her best as model/reality sensation Kendall Jenner's best friend and the subject of endless rumors about a romance with pop prince Justin Bieber. The Biebs claimed Baldwin is "someone I really love" in a 2016 interview with GQ; but a 19-year-old Baldwin later told E! News that they were not an exclusive couple. (Sigh.) Kids today.

Harley Quinn Smith

Filmmaker Kevin Smith may not be—uh, how do we put this lightly?—George Clooney in the looks department. However, his teenage daughter, Harley, is already turning heads with her budding acting career and gorgeous looks. The starlet, who'll turn 17 in 2016, is making a name for herself after appearing in a number of her dad's movies, as well as an upcoming TV pilot called Hollyweed. She even had an uncredited cameo in 2004's Jersey Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. The fact that she survived that cinematic disaster unscathed should give Harley a free pass in Hollywood for life.

Maya Thurman-Hawke

Maya Thurman-Hawke, the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, is living the life of every teenage fashionista's dreams. In 2015, at age 16, she stunned at the CFDA Fashion Awards in a floral Zac Posen gown and even attended the event as the designer's big date. Thurman-Hawke is also reported to be pursuing an acting career. According to Variety, director Sofia Coppola walked away from the live-action Little Mermaid reboot after the studio wouldn't let her cast Thurman-Hawke in the lead. Damn, this kid is already wielding a lot of Tinseltown influence.

Eve Hewson

Eve Hewson, who plays young nurse Lucy Elkins on Cinemax's The Knick, is actually the daughter of U2 frontman Bono. The rocker's kid, who'll turn 25 in 2016, is already proving she can stand on her own two feet. In addition to the Emmy-nominated TV series, Hewson has appeared in big-name movies Bridge of Spies and Enough Said. She's also set to play Maid Marian in Robin Hood: Origins, opposite Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx, due out in 2017.
