Many people interested in the lives of stars know about the existence of the Olsen twins or the relationship between Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. The question is, do you know, for example, who the father and stepfather of Dakota Johnson are? Here are the actors you had no idea were related.
Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein
You may recognize Beanie Feldstein from “Lady Bird” and “Booksmart”. I wonder if you knew that she is Jonah Hill’s sister. Their name difference is solely due to Jonah Hill simply not using his last name at work. He introduces himself only by his first name, because as it turns out, Hill is the actor’s middle name.
Denzel Washington and John David Washington
The similarity of the names of the legendary Denzel Washington with John David Washington, the star of the films “BlacKkKlansman” and “Tenet”, is not accidental. Denzel is John David’s father.
Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman
Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman come from a very famous family in Hollywood. The gentlemen come from the Coppola family. Nicolas Cage, whose real name is Coppola, is the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola – the creator of “The Godfather” – through his brother August Coppola (Nicolas Cage’s father). Jason Schwartzman is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, as he is the son of his sister, Talia Shire. Cage and Schwartzman are therefore cousins. Their cousin is also Sophia Coppola.
Julianne Moore and Marisa Tomei
Three years ago, Tomei learned that her friend Julianne Moore was also her genetic cousin. She was surprised and even delighted. She revealed that they even went to school together without knowing they were related. The actresses appeared together in the film “Crazy, Stupid Love”.
Dakota Johnson, Don Johnson, Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas
Dakota Johnson, known from the “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy, is the daughter of legendary actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. She is also the stepdaughter of Antonio Banderas and he raised her for many years, because he was married to Griffith from 1996 to 2015.
