If there are two things I love in life, it’s stars, star parents and cheese. Yeah that’s three things, but what are you really going to do? Shit. If we ever showed you the worst celebrity dads, the worst celebrity moms, and also the parents of stars who ripped off their kids, we’re going to give these people a boost because it’s not just motherfuckers in the heap, there are also people known or who have done cool stuff.
1. Olivia Newton John’s father was a spy during WWII
Table of Contents
If the name of the actress / singer does not mean anything to you, you must know her thanks to the film grease in which she shares the poster with John Travolta. His father is responsible for some key steps in the war against the Nazis since he helped thwart the plans of the latter on several occasions. Having a spy father is still a stylish thing.
2. Tupac’s mother was an important member of the Black Panther movement
If the texts of his son were committed, it is probably because his mother was just as much. Afeni Shakur was an important member of the Black Panther movement until she was watched, arrested and finally acquitted by the FBI shortly before the birth of her son.
3. Angelina Jolie’s father is a huge actor
Not everyone knows it, but the actress’ father is John Voight, an actor with a particularly rich career with big roles in films such as Delivery and the very striking tarmac cowboy. Well, she’s not the only actress who has an actor/actress father or mother, but her father isn’t just anyone either, so I’ll put it there.
4. Director Duncan Jones is the son of David Bowie
Whatever you have done in your life you will never be able to say “I am David Bowie’s child” and that is very sad. That being said, Duncan Jones can tell, and if he’s the director of the movie Warcraft which we are not going to talk about, it is also that of SourceCode and (above all) excellent Moon. And his father is Bowie, I won’t introduce him to you either.
5. Steven Spielberg’s father was an influential engineer
I’m not going to go into technical details that I don’t understand at all, but Arnold Spielberg was an electrical engineer who worked on a lot of technological projects to the point of winning the prestigious Computer Pioneer Awarda reward that you don’t win by making a luminous keychain in a techno class, for example.
6. Sylvester Stallone’s mother was a TV wrestling star
Jackie (Jaqueline) Stallone was a television celebrity known for her appearance on the program GLOW (gorgeous ladies of wrestling), a women’s wrestling show that had its glory in the 80s. Otherwise she practiced divination and in particular rumpology, which consists of reading the future in the inter-gluteal groove. Do what you want with this info. And second fun fact, Jackie’s mother was born in Brest in Brittany, so Stallone is a bit Breton.
7. Singer Nora Jones’ father is a huge musician
You necessarily know Nora Jones, or her voice, or her cat if you are neighbors, but did you know her father Ravi Shankar? You may have already heard his sitar notes on Rolling Stones or Beatles tracks. An outstanding musician who played on stage with Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan for example, but also with Keen’v. No, the last one is obviously wrong.
8. Kiefer Sutherland’s mother was an actress and activist
Shirley Douglas, the mother of the famous interpreter of Jack Bauer in 24 hour clock was a Canadian actress but also an activist who was involved in many causes, including the civil rights movement until helping to create the association of “friends of the Black Panthers” and being pissed off by the FBI.
9. Jack Black’s mother was an engineer at NASA.
Well we’re not going to lie to each other, it’s the classiest thing of all this top, in addition to being the mother of one of the funniest people in this world, Judith Cohen was a prestigious NASA engineer who worked on the AGS system, a kind of emergency autopilot to manage the landings and takeoffs of the Apollo shuttles. His son should be paid to him for being so cool on Instagram.
