Most of the time when we watch movies, we are more familiar with the face than the name of the person on the screen. Unless you're like me and think they're hot an do as much research about them as humanly possible, but typically that doesn't happen. You'll recognize the face but you won't know their name; here are 'Celebrities You May Not Have Known Are Related.'

Xavier and Benedict Samuel

The Walking Dead is a huge sensation and Benedict Samuel (Alpha Wolf) has been quite a hit since he appeared on the show. So much so that they to put his newest movie Asthma on Netflix. Now if you like Benedict wait till you realize who his brother is. Oh yes! I said it, he has a brother. Xavier Samuel some of you may know him from Twilight: Eclipse as Riley. We can mix vampires and zombies right?

Alexander and Bill Skarsgard

If you were an avid fan of True Blood then you loved the character Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) as much as I did. I couldn't seem to get enough of Eric, so when the show stopped, another began called Hemlock Grove. With the imagination of werewolves and vampires, I was pleased to see Alexanders brother (Bill) follow the footsteps of his brother - becoming a very attractive vampire.

Julia and Emma Roberts

Julia Roberts is an amazing actress, she is the person who comes to mind when you think 'Romantic Comedy'. Following in her footsteps to become a star is Emma Roberts being the niece of Julia. Though Emma has gone for more dark parts as she plays in the TV series American Horror Story.

Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal: when he was first starting out as a actor he starred in a movie called Donnie Darko. Did you know that his real life sister (Maggie) played his sister in the movie as well? I don't think they look alike at all, although they are indeed brother and sister. You don't come across many people with the last name 'Gyllenhaal'.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

These actresses are both easily loveable and fun to watch on the screen, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Goldie Hawn is the mother of Kate Hudson. Let's just speak lightly here and say that Kate Hudson is the new Goldie Hawn of our generation.
