Celebs Who Come From Money

April 8, 2013 by  

Celebs Who Come From Money, Celebs Who Come From Money, Some people are self-made celebrities. Others, however, got a boost from family money. Have a look at a few celebs for whom the story wasn’t so much rags to riches as it was … cashmere to additional riches.

Allison Williams

Unlike her character on “Girls,” if this actress ever loses her day job she won’t have to slum it as a hostess to make ends meet. She can easily report back to her father and ask him to foot her bills. Allison should be wary, though. If she did have financial woes, it could make headline news. Brian Williams daughter is Allison Williams, brian williams net worth $30 million,

Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal

It wasn’t a coincidence that Maggie and Jake landed one of their first gigs together in a film called “A Dangerous Woman.” It just so happens that their father also had a mighty big role in this movie. It wasn’t the acting kind of role, but it certainly helped pad his bank account, allowing for a very cushy life for his family. Stephen Gyllenhaal is Maggie and Jake’s father, maggie and jake gyllenhaal three films together,

Bryce Dallas Howard

Not only is Bryce an accomplished actress, this redheaded beauty also comes from a famous family of gingers. Her father has become one of most bankable men in Hollywood with a career that has spanned over 50 years. Ron Howard ‘s daughter Bryce Dallas Howard, ron howard net worth,

Anderson Cooper

He cut his teeth reporting on conflicts in far-flung regions of the globe, but Cooper grew up in considerably more comfortable circumstances, at least financially speaking. In fact, he descends from one of America’s richest industrial families. anderson cooper is heir to the vanderbilt family, anderson cooper net worth,

Rashida Jones

She’s carved a niche for herself as a thinking man’s hottie who specializes in subtle comedy, but because of her father, she likely could have found success in whatever field she chose. rashida jones’ father is composer quincy jones, quincy jones net worth $300 million,

Armie Hammer

Don’t be fooled by his name. “The Social Network” star isn’t the heir to the Arm & Hammer baking soda fortune. But that doesn’t mean Hammer grew up in tatters. His family is, in fact, loaded. armie hammer occidental petroleum, armie hammer arrested, armie hammer married elizabeth chambers,

Rooney Mara

Her acting career exploded in the last year, but even if it had fizzled, Mara would have had a fairly large financial cushion to fall back onto. In fact, there’s sports-related money on both sides of her family. rooney mara’s family owns the new york giants, rooney mara’s family owns the pittsburgh steelers,

Brooke Shields

Not only did her father once hold a high-ranking executive position at a major American corporation, but also, Shields happens to be a descendant of Italian royalty. brooke shields father was an executive at revlon, brooke shields’ grandmother was Princess Donna Marina Torlonia,

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Of course, all that “Seinfeld” money can’t hurt, but let’s just say that if Louis-Dreyfus had stopped acting 20 years ago, then she’d still be good to go. In fact, as a result of her family’s ties to a major French corporation, she may be one of the wealthiest people in Hollywood. julia louis-dreyfus’s family owns the louis dreyfus group, julia louis-dreyfus net worth $2.9 billion,

Balthazar Getty

He’s famous for work such as his role on “Brothers & Sisters” and for his real-life romantic entanglements. But his family is used to being in the public eye: His great-grandfather was one of the richest men in the world. +balthazar getty’s great-grandfather john paul getty founded getty oil, balthazar getty sienna miller scandal,

Giada De Laurentiis

As a result of her feats in the kitchen, she’s probably the most famous member of her family today. But she had an “in” in the showbiz industry: her notably successful grandfather. giada’s grandfather is film mogul dino de laurentiis, giada de laurentiis recipes,

Kyra Sedgwick

This actress can claim not only a famous cousin, but also a wealthy, historically important family whose roots in the U.S. go back all the way to the American Revolution. sedgwick family U.S. history,kyra sedgwick edie sedgwick cousin,

Edward Norton

Edward Norton’s phenomenal acting earned him a place in pop culture history, but his family has another claim to fame: They helped popularize the shopping mall. edward norton rouse company,

Leelee Sobieski

Her immediate family boasts more artsy types than it does snobby rich types, but Sobieski says her lineage traces back to royalty. sobieski family polish royalty,

Jason Schwartzman

“Rushmore” put him on the map as an actor, but he was far from the first member of his family to establish himself in Hollywood. In fact, his family might be one of the most powerful in Hollywood. jason schwartzman nephew of francis ford coppola, +jason schwartzman cousin of sophia coppola, +jason schwartzman cousin of nicholas cage,

Devon Aoki

Her greatest claim to fame is probably having become a successful fashion model despite her small stature — she’s only 5 feet 5 inches tall — but she’s also appeared in movies such as “Sin City.” It probably didn’t hurt her career that she’s a restaurant heiress. +devon aoki’s father founded benihana,

Kristian Bush

Of course, you hear that last name “Bush” and you start thinking all presidential. But Sugarland singer Kristian Bush is actually related to another tribe, whose last name you may have seen in your local grocery store… kristian bush baked beans,

Chevy Chase

This “Saturday Night Live” legend has more ties to wealthy business dynasties than the New York Stock Exchange does. That’s not to say that they afforded him an incredibly moneyed upbringing, exactly, but he’s nonetheless well connected. chevy chase crane plumbing, chevy chase folgers coffee, chevy chase cornelius vanderbilt anderson cooper,

Carly Simon

This legendary singer-songwriter was helped along by some pretty powerful financial backing, but don’t worry about her artistic cred. This particular company is as much a cultural force as a commercial one. carly simon simon & schuster, who did carly simon write you’re so vain about,

Spike Jonze

If you don’t know director Spike Jonze for his mind-blowingly creative films — “Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation,” “Where the Wild Things Are” — then you might know him for his marriage to Sofia Coppola. But what you probably don’t know is his tie to a certain billion-dollar catalog company. +spike jonze spiegel catalog,

Daphne Guinness

A lot of the wealthier celebs on this list make a habit of seeming like they’re just regular people — or at least as close to regular as celebs can get. Not Daphne. This fashionista has a reputation for indulgence, conspicuous consumption, and couture that verges on downright batty. daphne guinness brewery heiress, daphne guinness married spyros niarchos,

Robert Wagner

The “Hart to Hart” star, pictured here with his wife, Jill St. John, has been acting for decades, but he got a boost from the fact that his father worked in a powerful, money-making industry. robert wagner sr. detroit steel, jill st. john married barbara hutton’s son,

Paul Giamatti

This acclaimed actor has a certain schlubby look to him that most people wouldn’t read as “moneyed.” But don’t let appearances fool you; the Giamatti family is well funded and well connected. paul giamatti’s father was commissioner of major league baseball,
