Why Does Angelina Jolie Look Like This Man? How Celebrities Take After Their Famous Parents [Video]

Angelina Jolie is generally considered one of the most beautiful and elegant women in the world — at least in the world of Hollywood celebrities. But where does she get her stunning features? One look at the young Jon Voight, star of of such classic films from the 1970s era as Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance and Coming Home, and you’ll know.

Because if you didn’t already know, the Oscar-winning Jon Voight — who most recently appears as a gangster on the Showtime series Ray Donovan — is Angelina Jolie’s father. The father and daughter stars are not often seen together, but in this video from our celebrity-spotting friends at BuzzFeed, you’ll see clearly how closely the family resemblance runs, not only for Angelina Jolie, but for other celebrities as well.

Take a look at how much 24 star Kiefer Sutherland looks like his dad, veteran actor Donald Sutherland. The elder Sutherland starred in the original film of M*A*S*H and most recently appears as the villainous “president” in the Hunger Games series.

Then there’s musician Dhani Harrison, who is the splitting image of his father, the late Beatle George Harrison. And Law and Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay, whose face, if not her body, comes directly from her mom, the busty 1960s sex-symbol Jayne Mansfield.

Earlier, the Inquisitr brought you a video showing how many famous celebrities are related to each other. While Hollywood nepotism may indeed be out of control, this video shows that inherited good looks never hurt anyone.
