20. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been stars since they were toddlers starring in Full House. But even some of their biggest fans may not know about their sister Elizabeth Olsen! Elizabeth started making more of a name for herself as an actress in 2017, making it easier to step out of the shadows of her more successful sisters.

They even gave her advice on dealing with the press. “They’d say, ‘You know, even if you don’t think anyone’s going to read this article, someone might pull the quote later for [something else].’ It’s all part of how you hope someone interprets you, and how they frame who you are and the work you do,” Elizabeth said.

19. Jaden Smith and Trey Smith

Long before Willow Smith was whipping her head back and forth and Jaden Smith was doing his rendition of Karate Kid, there was the first son that Will Smith became a parent too, and his name is Trey Smith. Born in 1992, the 25-year-old isn’t in the limelight as much as Willow and Jaden.

We hardly, if ever, hear about Doug and that isn’t by accident. He likes to stay out of the attention of media and lives in his home state of Missouri. One thing he isn’t fond of is questions about his brother.

“I appreciate the interest [in Brad]. I understand why people want to ask about him,” he told NOVA FM. “But I’ve answered the same question for 25 years. And so, you do go a little bit on autopilot… Again, I appreciate the interest. I’m really proud of him.”
