Older siblings tend to get more attention than younger siblings. Believe me, I know, I’m the oldest of four kids. In the entertainment industry, a lot of older siblings tend to get more credit for being more talented and attractive (Beyonce and Solange, anyone?), but sometimes, a little brother or sister not only out hots their older sibling, they also out talent them.
Here are 10 younger siblings that are getting noticed all on their own for not only being mega hot, but also finding their own success away from the shadow of their older brother or sister. These guys aren’t just stepping out of their older sibling’s shadow, they’re starting to cast their own.
Elizabeth Olsen is the younger sister of the most famous twins on the planet. By the time Mary-Kate and Ashley turned 18, they were multi-millions, sex symbols, and fashion icons, making them a difficult pair to compete with. However, Elizabeth has bursted out of their shadow and redefined the Olsen last name, becoming a voluptuous sex symbol in her own right and constantly being praised for her acting chops. To say there are some great genetics going around the Olsen household would be an understatement.
Side note: Cheri O’Teri is not a Simpson sister, she’s just in the pic. Jessica Simpson became famous back in the late-90’s when a wave of pretty, blond Pop-stars basically took over the world (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore). Jessica wasn’t as hot, talented, or famous as Britney and Christina, and she was mostly just famous for being a virgin. A few years later, the world was introduced to her younger sister, Ashlee. Ashlee was sexier, Ashlee had a more interesting singing voice, and soon her music had out-sold her sister’s and people genuinely gave more of a shit about her. Neither sister has been up to much lately (Jessica is mostly just famous now for losing weight), but Ashlee is still the hotter Simpson sister as far as I’m concerned, and I find her singing way less annoying. I actually have a total lady boner for Ashlee Simpson, so I’m biased, I guess.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Ben Affleck is super handsome and had really turned his career around become a great director, but when it comes to their acting career, their is simply no comparison. Ben got famous first, but Casey is the better actor. In fact, Casey Affleck is a fantastic fucking actor who, unlike his brother, has made consistently intelligent career choices. His body of work is incredible and well respected, and I find there to be something so incredibly sexy about him. That voice? Those eyes? Yeah, he’s definitely my preferred Affleck.
At the height of their fame, Joe Jonas was considered the group’s heartthrob, but as the years passed, youngest brother, Nick, grew into one hell of an attractive man who, as it turns out, had all the talent anyway. Nick wrote the majority of the band’s songs and now he’s the music director of Demi Lovato’s successful “Neon Lights” tour. He dated Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez in their teen dream primes, but now the brother who is known as being mature beyond his years is dating a sexy older woman. Plus, have you seen his topless Instagram pics? Yeah, maybe you should go Google that shit.
A few years ago, Dakota Fanning was the top bitch of child stars, the second coming of Jodi Foster and all that shit. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Dakota Fanning, but younger sister, Elle, has basically come in and taken over and she is owning shit. Starring in critically acclaimed movie after critically acclaimed movie, Elle is elegantly beautiful and has an acting maturity beyond her years. I would vote her as the first sister to win an Oscar.
Sure, Macaulay Culkin was the biggest child star in the world in 90’s, and even grew into a pretty hunky dude for a while, but it was ultimately younger brother, Kieran, who maintained a consistent and critically acclaimed career, while also staying sexy enough to land ladies like Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone. Kieran is still acting and is still a babe. Macaulay? Well, I suggest you remember him in this picture instead of Googling what he looks like now…
Sure, Emily Deschanel is pretty and successful in her own right, but baby sister Zooey is the real star of the family. She’s a pixie dream girl with big blue eyes, amazing hair, a beautiful singing voice, and an endearing acting style. Basically everyone has a bit of a crush on Zooey, I mean, how could you not?
Both James and Dave Franco are insanely sexy, funny, and talented, so trying to pick a Franco is practically impossible. In recent years, Dave has proven to be effortlessly funny and, unlike his big brother, shies away from the lime light and is, frankly, a little less ridiculous. Let’s face it: Dave also doesn’t try as hard as James does. He’s just funny. Plus, when you star in a movie with Zac Efron and people still notice how hot you are, you know you must be REALLY hot.
When you come from a family that’s famous for being attractive, it can be hard to stand out, but Kendall Jenner has done just that. Stepping out of the shadows of famous older siblings, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe, Kendall has gone on to become a respected model, walking the runway for big names like Chanel, and making her first appearance at the MET Ball at the ripe age of 18 (other than Kim, no other Kardashian sister has been invited to the MET ball and, let’s be real, Kim wouldn’t be invited if it wasn’t for Kanye). Kendall is absolutely stunning and is becoming a fashion It Girl.
Sure, William gets to be King, but the ladies (and the media) love Prince Harry. He’s super sexy, wild, and the palace’s bad boy.
