Disgusted that so very many of Angelina Jolie's kids managed to snag roles in her upcoming film, Maleficent? Well, get ready for more nepotism, because the Huffington Post lists 17 more celebrity children who are getting into showbiz themselves:

  • Maude and Iris Apatow, daughters of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, have appeared in three of their parents' films. (And Maude is a Twitter celebrity, too.)

  • Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead started modeling at the ripe old age of 6.
  • Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, will make her acting debut in Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.
