Becoming a recognized face in Hollywood is already a pretty difficult feat to accomplish, and becoming one of two celebrities within a single family is even more rare. It’s amazing to see just how many families are so full of talent that they have not one, but two (and in some cases even three) children that are able to cross into Hollywood fame.
There are a few instances in which siblings have been able to act alongside one another in big Hollywood films and share the spotlight of success. There’s no room for sibling rivalry when you have to work together on a big screen! Let’s take a look at celebrity siblings that have shared the spotlight in the world of film…
10 Maggie & Jake Gyllenhaal: ‘Donnie Darko’
Arguably one of the biggest movies of its time, Donnie Darko couldn’t have become as iconic as we know it to be without the involvement of every actor in the film. It just so happens that Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal were able to trek into work together and join the set as sibling stars in this incredible film.
Insider reports that this brother and sister team gets along perfectly and seem more than happy to share the spotlight with one another. They’ve gone on to share a number of Hollywood projects, and fans love the sibling dynamic they bring to the set.
9 Dylan & Cole Sprouse: ‘Big Daddy’
The Sprouse brothers have worked together pretty much since they were born. They appeared on the television show Grace Under Fire when they were just babies, and it seemed only natural to have them cast together in a variety of different projects as they grew up. In Big Daddy, with Adam Sandler, the twin brothers appeared together switching off playing the same character, as is usually the case with young identical twins in Hollywood. They later went on to land the major Disney show, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
8 Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: ‘To Grandmother’s House We Go’
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been working alongside one another since they were just babies, so it seems only natural that the twins continue to do so in their adulthood as well. They thrive when working on shared projects and have effortlessly shifted from being the small-screen stars from Full House, to taking on a series of Hollywood films together with huge success. They’ve always had great momentum working alongside one another and haven’t been known to display any sort of sibling rivalry.
7 Chris & Luke Hemsworth: ‘Thor Ragnarok’
Fans are accustomed to seeing Chris Hemsworth in the spotlight, and having his older brother, Luke join him on the set of a movie is always a welcome treat. In a rare mutual movie gig, the brothers were able to join forces on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, and fans absolutely loved being able to see them work alongside one another. Radio Times reports that Luke’s role in the film was a cameo appearance, but that was enough to get fans excited!
6 Haylie & Hilary Duff: ‘Material Girls’
Hilary Duff has quite a few accolades under her belt as a solo actress, and saw her rise to fame on the small screen at a very young age. She initially gained fame through her work on the Disney Channel and then went on to take on larger roles in the world of film. Her sister, Haylie, wasn’t as predominantly recognized, but she, too made some cameo appearances on Disney’s Lizzie McGuire and acted with her sister. During their teen years, the sisters began to take on more projects together as a team, including the movie Material Girls and song, “Our Lips Are Sealed.”
5 Joe, Nick, & Kevin Jonas: ‘Camp Rock’
Nick and Joe Jonas have always been the main focal point of the press, as they joined forces with older brother, Kevin Jonas to create music under the boy-band name, the Jonas Brothers. Kevin may have been the lesser recognized member of this trio during their start, but he did join forces with his siblings on the set of Camp Rock. There never seems to be any animosity between these brothers, and they have always meshed well with one another when the three of them worked on projects as a family.
4 Marlon & Shawn Wayans: ‘White Chicks’
Marlon and Shawn Wayans are regularly spotted together and are known to make public appearances with their usual familial-flair! Bringing an element of comedy with them everywhere they go, these siblings have managed to keep things light and fun while filming the movie White Chicks with one another. They even played brothers within the movie, using their sibling connection to their full benefit. They’ve also appeared in Scary Movie, and Scary Movie 2 alongside one another.
3 John & Joan Cusack: ‘Say Anything’
This brother and sister team really shines and stands out among the rest. The adorable bond between John and Joan Cusack is truly one of a kind.

1 Casey & Ben Affleck: ‘Good Will Hunting’
