The Dads and Kids Who Have Been in Movies Together

Jun 20 2015 - 4:00pm

With Father's Day [1] on Sunday, we thought it would be fun to look at Hollywood's famous dads and their famous kids. While some acting relatives keep their distance, plenty of others have appeared in movies together — even playing father and son or daughter! We've already looked at the moms who have done it [2], too, so from the Smith dynasty to the Skarsgards and the Douglases, see which dads have appeared on screen with their children.

Tatum and Ryan O'Neal

The 1973 movie not only starred father and daughter — it made 10-year-old Tatum the youngest person to ever win an Oscar.

Angelina Jolie and Jon Voight

Though they've had public ups and downs, Jolie and Voight played father and daughter in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

Kirk and Michael Douglas

A bona fide movie star before his son joined the family business, Kirk played Michael's onscreen father in the comedy It Runs in the Family in 2003.

Brad Pitt and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

Vivienne isn't the only Jolie-Pitt [4] to star alongside her parent. Shiloh has a very brief cameo as the daughter of her papa in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Ben and Jerry Stiller

In the comedy classic Zoolander, Ben's dad, Jerry, plays his manager, Maury Ballstein, while his mom Anne Meara also appears [5].

Will and Jaden Smith

Will and Jaden also played father and son in last year's After Earth, but we prefer their pairing in 2006's The Pursuit of Happyness, because Jaden is irresistibly, ridiculously adorable.

Alexander and Stellan Skarsgard

Alexander has made a name for himself as hot vampire Eric on True Blood, while his dad is a big-screen veteran, but in 2011, they paired up in the drama Melancholia. Stellan's character was the best man at Alexander's character's wedding [6].

Martin and Charlie Sheen

The 1987 classic Wall Street gave Charlie Sheen [8] a memorably '80s role, but do you remember that dad Martin played his dad in it, too?

Colin and Tom Hanks

The Hanks boys have been in a couple of movies together: 2008's The Great Buck Howard, in which they were father and son, and 1996's That Thing You Do!, which was Colin's first role (he has a small part as a page).

Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus

Just like in the TV series of the same name, Miley and her dad played father and daughter in Hannah Montana: The Movie in 2009.

Matthew Perry and John Bennett Perry

Like many others, John played Mathew's dad in the sweet romantic comedy Fools Rush In.
