16 Celebrities From Famous Families

Maya Hawke being the daughter of Hollywood icons Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke was a fact that took the internet by storm this year when she returned as the loveable Robin Buckley on Netflix's smash hit "Stranger Things". And while nepotism can be tricky waters to navigate when your parents are that famous, Maya hasn't taken her privileged upbringing for granted.

Speaking of her legendary family, Maya told The Guardian that they "tried to protect me from falling into acting". The actor, singer, and model added: "They wanted to ensure I had a strong enough backbone, my own passion for it and work ethic. They didn't want to cart me along every red carpet or have me do bit-parts in their movies."

Maya has undoubtedly worked hard to make a name for herself. In fact, many people didn't even realise her background until this year. "Maya Hawke is the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma thurman ???" one person queried on Twitter, while another noted: "Just found out that Maya Hawke is Uma Thurman's daughter and idk how i missed it bc she LOOKS JUST LIKE UMAAAAA OMG."

So if you're behind on your who's who in Hollywood, take a look at the big-name stars who you might not have realised are from famous families.
