Genes are amazing things. They can dictate how one lives, how long one lives, and also, most notably in Hollywood, how attractive one is.
In a very generous act, superstars from the movies, music, and TV have let their incredibly talented and handsome DNA be passed down to a new generation. Their children often didn’t just inherit their talent but their incredible looks — and sometimes the parent may not be known for their gorgeous looks, but somehow give birth to a stunner. Some of these examples of the gorgeous gene are well-known from second generation Hollywood hotties like Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow, but here are 20 examples of incredibly attractive offspring that you may not have met yet!
