There is no need to highlight how much love and care grandparents give to their grandchildren. Now when your grandad is Elvis Presley or Charlie Chaplin, or you have Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly as your grandma—you could definitely get a lot of inspiration and even follow their footsteps into the wilderness of the world of art and entertainment. In some cases, the scale of the popularity of the grandchildren evens out to their grandparents’ and, unexpectedly or not, skyrockets.

Here’s a list of grandparents and their currently famous grandchildren so you can decide for yourselves if they are as talented, influential, and beautiful, or even more, than their iconic elders.
