They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – in celebration of Father’s day, here are 10 celebrities who have followed their fathers’ footsteps into the limelight.

The star of cult classic “Zoolander” and hit family movie “Night at the Museum” is a huge Hollywood presence. Few may know, however, that Ben Stiller is the son of veteran actor Jerry Stiller, best known for his role as Frank Costanza on “Seinfeld.”

Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez

A powerhouse of a Hollywood family, actor Martin Sheen spawned not one, but four acting children - Emilio Estevez, Ramon Estevez, Charlie Sheen and Renée Estevez. Arguably the two most famous of the siblings, Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez have co-starred alongside their father in projects like the movie “Wall Street.” Don’t be confused by the variety of last names: “Martin Sheen” is only a stage name, which only one of his four kids chose to adopt.

Jaden and Willow Smith

At only 15 and 13 years old, Jaden and Willow Smith have done a lot to make their “Fresh Prince” dad Will Smith proud. From being named Vanity Fair’s next wave of stars to releasing viral music videos and rubbing elbows with the likes of Jackie Chan and Justin Bieber, the Smith kids clearly have a long future of fame ahead of them.

Stella McCartney

Legendary former Beatles member Paul McCartney doesn’t seem to make much music these days, giving him time to sit at the front row of his daughter’s fashion shows during Paris fashion week.

Georgia May Jagger

Walking runways for names like Chanel, Georgia May Jagger has made a name for herself following the career path not of her dad, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, but of her mom, model Jerry Hall.

Zoë Kravitz

As daughter of both musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, Zoë has a lot to live up to. Between her band Lolawolf catching the attention of Vogue and her roles in films like “Divergent,” however, she seems to be doing just fine.

Miley Cyrus

Some might say that Billy Ray Cyrus seems to be riding on the coattails of his daughter’s success ever since they began co-starring in “Hannah Montana” more than eight years ago, but Billy Ray was singing about his “Achy Breaky Heart” long before Miley was born, and isn’t laying low nowadays either, with a new role in his latest film, “Like a Country Song.”

Rashida Jones

Another child of superstar parents, Rashida Jones and her sister Kidada Jones have spoken at length before about the difficulties of growing up in a biracial household, as children of 27-time Grammy winner Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton.
