Fame changes people. It also changes their families, apparently. And their next-door neighbors. And their cousin's best friend's cat. Basically anyone within five degrees of separation from someone who's been on TV, in movies or in headlines, has a story to tell.
Here's 23 people on how their lives have been affected by blood relation or proximity to fame:
1.) From Aeksel:
Related to Keanu Reeves. We have a Reeve's ohana gathering every year in Hawai'i and he never comes. Which I don't blame him at all, his dad was not a good father so I assume, besides being a busy actor, he doesn't come because that burned the bridges with our family. My dad sometimes mentions Keanu when the reunions happen, about how he doesn't visit. It's not in a bitter way or anything, just sometimes the little cousins ask. I haven't met all my family in Hawai'i yet cause I live in the mainland, but I do know at least a few people are salty about it. Other than that, my cousins look up to him and get excited when he's in a movie. Even if the kids aren't allowed to watch cause of violence they see a movie poster and look all awe-struck. So cute.
