From David's role in the campy thriller Scream to Alexis' memorable voice in The Wedding Singer, the Arquette siblings have acted in all types of films. Show business runs in the family—their father, Lewis Arquette, was regularly seen on series like The Waltons and their grandfather, Cliff Arquette, was famous for his comedic alter-ego "Charley Weaver," a regular on the game show Hollywood Squares!
Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen

6. Emilio Estevez & Charlie Sheen
Emilio goes by the family's surname, while brother Charlie opted to adopt his father's stage name, Sheen. Emilio is immortalized as a member of the infamous 1980s “Brat Pack” while Charlie currently stars in the uber-successful sitcom, Two and a Half Men, making Estevez and Sheen stars in their own right.

A passion for acting must run in the family. Their father Martin Sheen has been a Hollywood fixture since landing his first film role in the 1960s.

8. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen
The Olsen twins' popularity began when Mary-Kate and Ashley were just 9 months old, appearing as baby Michelle on the television show Full House. At just 7 years old, the mini-moguls co-founded Dualstar to market their images to tweens around the world—from DVDs to cosmetics to furniture. At 18, the girls took over the company, estimated to be worth millions.

The twins are now focusing on their passion for fashion—in 2006, they launched a high-end clothing line called The Row, followed by a more contemporary line, Elizabeth and James.
