Are You Sure You’re Related? Celebrity Siblings Who Don’t Really Look Alike
Are you sure you know which celebrities are related? Some celebrity siblings like Serena and Venus Williams look similar while others look so much alike that it’s easy to get them confused.

But not every celebrity sibling pair look that similar — even when they’re celebrity twins. If these famous sisters and brothers didn’t have their last names in common, we definitely wouldn’t have spotted them as siblings. We’ve put their pictures side by side, and we still find ourselves having to squint.
Can you see the genetic connection between these siblings? Or do you need to see their birth certificates to be 100 percent sure? Read on and get ready to be surprised at who you see on the list, and let us know if you saw the resemblance or if you were taken by surprise too.
