Famous Hollywood Directors With Famous Hollywood Daughters
We’ve all seen our fair share of nepotism in Hollywood with famous directors casting their kids, but how about all the lovely Hollywood daughters stemming from Hollywood directors? It’s right up there with rock ‘n roll daughters. Take a look and love it.
Ron & Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce Dallas Howard hit it big with one of the largest blockbuster sequels this summer, including one of the biggest weekend openings ever. Her father, Ron Howard, is the classic voice behind “Arrested Development,” as well as the man behind films like “Apollo 13” and “A Beautiful Mind” and “Frost/Nixon.”
Francis Ford & Sofia Coppola
He’s the genius behind “The Godfather” trilogy and “Apocalypse Now,” and she’s a director herself. Though she’s credited in her father’s “Godfather” films, Sofia directed classics like “The Virgin Suicides,” “Lost in Translation” and will revisit Bill Murray’s world with “A Very Murray Christmas.” But we bet you didn’t know she was related to other celebrities.
Richard & Lorelei Linklater
Richard Linklater, the director of the “Before Sunrise” saga and “Dazed and Confused,” is the writer and director of the long-shot hit, “Boyhood,” and he used his own daughter, Lorelei, as the daughter, Samantha, in the film.
Clint & Francesca Eastwood
Clint needs no introduction, but his beautiful daughter, Francesca Eastwood, is a face we can get used to, and likely will with the new fall TV reboot, “Heroes Reborn.” She’s only 22 years old, but her older half-sister, Alison, is also an actress as well, has been for awhile.
Steven & Sasha Spielberg
Steven has too many credits to even begin to list, but his daughter, Sasha Spielberg, is one of those annoying cases of directors casting their kids. As early as the age of 14, he cast her to play a role in his 2004 Tom Hanks film, “The Terminal,” and later on in “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
Robert & Amy Redford
The original Great Gatsby’s daughter, Amy Redford, is 45 years old and she’s been around the acting scene for awhile with small roles in TV and movies like “Maid in Manhattan” and “Sunshine Cleaning.” But recently, Amy has followed in her father’s footsteps by getting into directing. She has two projects announced and going into production, one a dramedy and the other an adventure romance.
Ridley & Jordan Scott
Ridley Scott is one of our favorite sci-fi geniuses, and his daughter, Jordan, is a very successful photographer, actress and filmmaker. All four projects she’s directed were also written by her as well, along with a dabble of acting, producing and real actor stunt work along the way.
Ernie & Blake Lively
He’s been a steady actor since the 1970s with only one directing credit, “Sandman,” in 1998. But that’s more than enough for us to ogle over his incredible beautiful daughter, Blake Lively, who’s wowed us in her films like “Savages.” She got her start in acting from her father’s one time in the director’s chair. Thank goodness for “Sandman.”
Andy Garcia & Dominik Garcia-Lorido
With a lot of odd directing credits dating back as early as 1993, we can’t think of a good reason to include Andy Garcia, New York’s Mayor in the new “Ghostbusters,” except for the fact that his daughter, Dominik, is totally smoking. She appears in her father’s project, “The Lost City,” and has gone on to do a number of TV and film appearances. But mostly, she’s just hot.
Jon Voight & Angelina Jolie
One directing credit for the famed actor with a 1995 TV movie, “The Tin Soldier,” is enough to get us to post a photo of his daughter, Angelina Jolie. The rest needs no introduction, as both are exquisite actors, one of which is easy on the eyes. That’s right, we’re talking about you, Jon boy.
Tony & Joely Richardson
Tony Richardson is the late father of Joely who earned himself an Academy Award for Best Director on “Tom Jones.” Joely is the popular actress from the surgical show, “Nip/Tuck,” and the recent indie zombie hit, “Maggie.” She had an actress sister, Natasha, who passed away in 2009 from a skiing accident.
Paul & Mira Sorvino
With only a few directing credits, including “The Trouble With Cali” for Goodfella, Paul Sorvino, his greatest accomplishment is his daughter, Mira, who got her name in acting well before she joined her father’s cast in 2012. She’s 47 years old and still red hot as ever.
