Celebrities that we eulogize today are nothing more or less than heirs of their rich parents. Especially, Hollywood stars are born into ‘well-to-do’ families. When we look at the core of the Hollywood industry, it turns out that it is more of a family business. In other words, the young celebrities that have worldwide fame today have simply followed their parent’s footprints. This means that they are the offspring of celebrity parents. Thus, it will not be wrong that the celebrities who are widely popular – particularly in Hollywood – are not self-made celebrities. Rather, they are born into a family that was a celebrity of their time.
Thus, these parents train their kids at home. And when they hit the industry, they nail it through and through. So, the next time you admire a celebrity, pause for a second and do your research about his or her family and ancestors. 99 times out of 100, you will find out that these celebrities’ parents were either celebrities themselves, or that they were extremely rich.
From Ariana Grande to Salma Hayek, several stars in the Hollywood hall of fame have amassed worldwide fame—not because they are self-made, but instead, they have simply followed the footprints of their rich parents.
Before we dive deep and analyze the brief list of celebrities who are famous only because of their wealthy parents, let’s be clear: We are not being biased here; we have definitely taken into account the efforts and struggles these celebrities have gone through to reach the top. Of course, there are some celebrities who are self-made – through and through. They come from indigenous families and make their names based on sheer talent and commitment. Keeping that aside for a while, the other side of the coin is equally considerable: There is a sheer amount of celebrities who are popular only because they were born into well-to-do, influential families.
That said, here is a brief list of celebrities who were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Ultimately, they were destined to be famous, popular – and you guessed it – rich.
The first Hollywood hall of fame on our list is none other than one who has made her name in American pop music in no time: Ariana Grande. Fair enough, she has the most intriguing voice, and her fame is justifiable. Likewise, she has also amassed incredible fame through acting.
But keeping that aside for a while, if we look at her family, it turns out that she is the daughter of extremely rich and successful parents. It turns out that her mom, Joan, is the founder and CEO of Hose McCain Communication – a widely successful company in the U.S. Similarly, her dad Edward Butera is the CEO and founder of another successful company called IBI Designs.
