Hollywood is not for want of beautiful women, or iconic show business families. There are however, much fewer attractive mother-daughter combinations than one would likely imagine. While we all know the more popular ones, there are some surprising examples, found when this topic was further investigated. Baring in mind, some of these women have passed (away or their prime), this list has been compiled to present the most beautiful mother-daughter combinations in Hollywood, even if their hotness was short-lived or long-gone.
Goldie Hawn - Kate Hudson
These two are perhaps the most famous of the mother-daughter pairings in Hollywood. These days, most recognize Hawn s simply Kate Hudson’s mom, but judging from old pics from the early 1980s (or the 1970s as above), she was quite the looker. Hudson, definitely took after her mom in the looks department, and has carved out a leading woman career for herself. In 2004, this pairing became a grandmother, and mother respectively - with the birth of Hudson’s son (fathered by The Black Crowes’ front man Chris Robinson) Ryder Russell Hudson
Peggy Lipton - Rashida Jones
Peggy Lipton is best known for her role in the 1970s “The Mod Squad”. She married Prolific music producer Quincy Delight Jones in 1974, and gave birth to two daughters, Kidada (1974) and Rashida (1976). While the eldest daughter is probably best known for having been Tupac Shakur’s fianc when he passed away, Rashida followed in her mother’s acting footsteps. Since she started acting in 1997, she has become increasingly popular, mostly due to her role as Karen Filipelli on “The Office”, or for playing opposite Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man (2009).
Lisa Bonet - Zoe Kravitz
When people found out that Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz were having a child, they could only speculate about what their uber-attractive offspring would end up looking like. I think few people are surprised, and no one is disappointed. She looks like a perfect combination of her parents.
Bebe Buell - Liv Tyler
Bebe Buell was very similar to the “Penny Lane” character in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous (2000). Her list of famous musician lovers included: Todd Rundgren, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Steven Tyler, Rod Stewart and Elvis Costello. She was also involved with Jack Nicholson at some time. during her il-lust-rious career. Her daughter, Liv Tyler (born 1977) was actually the biological daughter of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler (as her name suggests), even though she believed Rundgren to be her father throughout the late 1980s. When Tyler finally got clean and sober, Buell and her daughter dropped the “..by the way..” bomb on him. The two Tylers have enjoyed a close relationship since. The lips, we’re thinking, are a dead give away.
Marcheline Bertrand - Angelina Jolie
Bertrand is definitely lesser known than her famous well-endowed and philanthropic starlet of a daughter; she was wed to Jon Voight from 1971-1978. Their marriage produced the bearer of Hollywood’s most famous set of lips, and her brother, actor James Haven. Bertrand’s filmography was somewhat limited, and by the ealy 1980s she had moved on to pursue producing. While she sadly passed away two years ago, Bertrand is generally remembered in a positive light, and it is safe to say she was quite a looker herself during her youth.
Tippi Hedren - Melanie Griffith - Dakota Johnson
The Hedren-Griffith-Johnson pedigree is definitely a forced to be reckoned with. Hedren is probably best known for being part of John Hitchcock’s The Birds and Marnie; Johnson is best known as the much-lauded byproduct of Griffith’s brief marriage to Miami Vice star, Don Johnson. While Melanie Griffith has generated a fair amount of criticism for her appearance lately, it goes without saying that she was once hailed as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Her daughter, Dakota, is certainly following in her footsteps.
Susan Sarandon - Eva Amurri
While some people will say that Susan Sarandon has not aged that well, others claim that she is an earnest example of an aging starlet coming to terms - without resorting to intense plastic surgery and over-the-top youth-yearning outfits. Suffice to say, there is little to argue about her scenes (especially the nude ones) in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Amurri, her daughter, shows all the signs of following her mother’s footseps, most notably when it comes to the breast department.
Janet Leigh - Jamie Lee Curtis
Janet Leigh is probably best known for having played the role of the blond bombshell that gets slayed in the shower - and subsequently bleeding chocolate syrup - in Hitchcock’s seminal suspense- thriller, Psycho. Her daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis, enjoyed a long Hollywood career as a leading lady, and got down to her essentials in True Lies (strip scene anyone?). While Leigh has since passed away, and Curtis has passed her prime, there is no sense in compiling this list without their inclusion.
Lisa Marie Presley - Riley Keough
Similar to Jamie Lee Curtis, Lisa Marie Presley lost her hotness a long time ago. We’re speculating that it had a lot to do with her untimely marriage to everyone’s favorite freak, Michael Jackson, during the mid 1990s. But I’d be lying if I said that (at one time) thoughts of her going to town on my own graceland did not get me at least at half mass. Her daughter on the other hand, is smoooookoing. It’s just a bummer she’s dating Ashley Parker Angel, or Ryan Cabrera or whatever that douchebag’s name is.
Demi Moore - Rumor Willis
Ok, it goes without saying that Demi Moore is the all-time hottest MILF in Hollywood. At least for me, anyways. Have you ever seen her in Striptease? Game over. But with that said, it would be hard to imagine the apple falling far from the tree. Moore’ daughter with noted bad ass, Bruce Willis, is now hitting the Hollywood club semi-actress scene, and it seems that she is gradually becoming more attractive. While each makeover and minor plastic surgery procedure is bringing her closer to”hotness”, we are including her in this list in good faith that she will one day move entirely away from her status as a butterface. Do us proud Rumor.
Janet Jones - Paulina Gretzky
Wayne Gretzky was the perfect example of a nerd that was good at one thing. For most (Steve Jobs and Bill Gates) this means computers, but for Gretzky it meant Hockey - he is still currently the NHL’s all-time highest scorer. His wife was different: a corn-fed Midwestern beauty that went on to become a model, actress and fitness guru in the 1980s, she was perfect shoulder candy for “The Great One”. Their daughter,21 year old Paulina, is aspiring to be the next great Canadian songbird, and has been actively modeling since 2005. Rumor has it, she is also a scratch golfer, so for any men with a chance of dating her, it’s safe to take her to the course with you.
Bianca Jagger - Jade Jagger
Mick Jagger was married to Bianca Jagger (Née Peréz-Mora Maricas) from 1971 to 1979. During this time, the rocker and British-Nicaraguain model parented Jade (1971), who has gone on to enjoy a successful career as a model, and more recently, a jewelery designer. We think that she should have stuck to modeling - just look at that picture. In 1992, Jade herself gave birth to a daughter, Georgia, who sometime next year (may even make it onto the follow up to this list, per Hedren-Griffith-Johnson. Only time will tell…
Jerry Hall - Elizabeth Jagger
Jerry Hall is perhaps best known as having been Mick Jagger’s (yes, Jagger again) long-time partner and Common Law wife, and with whom she gave birth to their four children. But during the height of her career, Hall was one of the most in-demand models in the world, often earning in excess of $1000/day. The eldest of her and Mick’s children, Jade was born in 1984 and is following in her mom and older half-sister’s footsteps as a model. In 2002, she added “actress” to her resumé, with a supportive role in Igby Goes Down, and she continues to do print work - most recently with French-based Lancôme.
Colleen Farrington - Diane Lane
Diane Lane is that actress that for some reason is much hotter than her name sounds. For some reason, “Diane” sounds like she should be one of your mom’s overweight friends. Lane, however, is definitelooker even at the ripe age of 44. What al ot of people don’t know about her, is that her mother was a famous playmate during the nascent stages of Playboy. Farrignton went on to pursue a career in lounge-singing and more modelling after having been the magazine’s Playmate of the Month in October 1957. Pictures from this issue are available online, and we suggest you do a Google image search for more information.
Pearl Lowe - Daisy Lowe
Pearl Lowes was known as the lead singer for 1990s rock bands, Powder and Lodger, but perhaps she is most famous for having bore Gavin Rosdale’s first child via a one-night stand (Sorry, Gwen). Since becoming a mother (of Daisy, above), Pearl decided to pursue modeling and textile/fashion designing. Only 39 herself, she gave birth to Daisy in 1989. Like her mother, the younger Lowes is currently generating a fair amount of attention as a model, having been featured in “Harpar’s Bazaar”, “W Magazine”, and Italian “Vogue”. She has something of a “Mandy Moore” thing going for her, and we are interesting in seeing her grace the covers of some more racier publications.
