The Daily Beast: Greatest Hollywood Dynasties

3 of 12

The Paltrow/Danners

It seemed obvious that actress Blythe Danner and the late producer/director Bruce Paltrow would produce a Hollywood star—and indeed, they passed the showbiz torch to daughter Gwyneth. But the talented parents weren’t initially keen on launching a dynasty. For years, they hoped Gwyneth would surely pursue a more “intellectual” career, like medicine or law. “She’s so smart we wanted her to find a cure for AIDS or something,” said Danner at the recent Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards. “We were pretty firm about her finishing her education but when we saw how talented she was we finally said OK.” (Photo by Scott Wintrow/Getty Images)
