5. Brooke Shields
To many, Brooke Shields is Hollywood royalty. She exploded onto the silver screen in hits like Pretty Baby and The Blue Lagoon to become a movie princess. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Brooke is descended from actual royalty. Her grandmother was a real Italian princess in the House of Torlonia. Her grandfather was American royalty: he was an athlete. Brooke’s grandpa was well-known tennis pro Frank Shields. SEE ALSO: 10 Female celebrities caught repeating outfits (With Pictures)
That’s not all. Brooke’s family legacy continues with her father, who was a chief executive at Revlon and Estee Lauder. That’s a lot of makeup money. Life hasn’t been all sunshine and roses for Brooke despite all the money and fame, however. The actress has publicly talked about her struggles with her family, her pregnancy and her own love life.
Don’t feel too bad for Brooke. She’s an heiress to many, many millions by virtue of her amazing family legacy. That should buy lots of therapy.
