Everyone these days longs to look like a celebrity. Whether by sheer genetics or by cosmetic surgery, most people have a celeb that they idolize.
From George Clooney to Reese Witherspoon, it seems like there is always that one celeb that we try to pattern ourselves after. Whether through their mannerisms and attitude or by sheer appearance, most of us have someone that we admire. Some of us prefer the suave of Johnny Depp while others like the charming good looks of Brad Pitt. Some pattern themselves after famous supermodels such as Tyra Banks or Kylie Jenner while others aspire to be famous movie stars such as Angelina Jolie or Gwyneth Paltrow. But what if you were born looking like that celebrity? What if your parents were these A-list movie stars and you have inherently acquired these genetics by sheer luck?
Then you need not worry about having that blockbuster smile or that front page hair flip. Most of these celebs look almost identical to their kids when they were the same age.
