These people made a huge contribution to the cultural development of the world. Big names like Ernest Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley — they became icons of their time and are still admired, quoted, and imitated to this day. But what about their descendants? You may have seen them on TV screens or magazine covers, and now you will understand why they reminded you of someone else.
1. Anna Charrier — Granddaughter of Brigitte Bardot
Once she made her debut on the stage, Anna was able to become a rather successful actress in France. She is still far from her grandmother Brigitte Bardot’s levels of fame, but she’s getting there.

Elvis and Priscilla’s eldest granddaughter followed in her mother’s footsteps and chose acting as her career choice. You may remember her from Mad Max: Fury Road.
4. Levi Dylan — Grandson of Bob Dylan
Like most of the descendants who came from fame and money, Levi does not deny himself the pleasure of accepting an invitation to different events as a guest star. But like his grandfather, Levi dreams of a big stage breakout and a musical career.
5. Dree Hemingway — Great-granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway
She was born in 1987 and has grown up to be a model and a decent actress. Dree has worked with many modeling agencies, including Gucci, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Valentino, and H&M. And in March 2016, she became Playboy’s Girl of the Month.
6. Selah, Skip, and Nico Marley — Grandchildren of Bob Marley
Bob Marley loved women about as much as he loved music, maybe more. So it’s not surprising that the reggae legend had 11 children, and only five of them were from his legal wife. Selah became a gorgeous model, Skip followed his father’s steps, and Nico grew up to become a famous football player.
