There is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition and sibling rivalry is nothing new. Most of the time fortunately it is of the friendly, light hearted nature but it can occasionally get a little nastier. And there is more of it going on in the world of showbiz and celebrity than you might imagine, both in the past and in the present. Here’s a look at of our favorite celebrity siblings and the relationships they’ve enjoyed over the years:
1. Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez
As their Dad was already a highly respected and award winning actor by the time Martin Sheen’s kids were little more than toddlers it’s not too surprising that they both wanted to follow in his footsteps. Blond hunk Emilio used his Dad’s birth name as his stage name while his little brother choose to keep the Sheen moniker and change Carlos to Charlie.
In the 80’s it was Emilio who dominated, starring in classics like The Breakfast Cub, St Elmo’s Fire and Young Guns. Eventually his star was eclipsed by Charlie’s though and while Charlie is still making headlines (often for the wrong reasons) Emilio lives a quieter life behind the camera as a director.
