    We know you know that all your favorite celebs are—for the most part—human beings with human families. So, yeah, why wouldn’t, say, Zac Efron or Chloë Grace Moretz have interesting, perhaps similarly beautiful siblings? But do you know about them—like, really know about them? Chances are, you don’t.

    See, we’ve rounded up some celeb brothers and sisters that you might just be aware of, but only if you’ve been paying very, very close attention. We’re not talking about Elizabeth Olsen or Solange Knowles here. No, today we’re discussing Chuck Grant (who?), India Yelich-O’Connor (what?), and Rajad Fenty (huh?)—celeb siblings who, though awesome and often talented, stand just offstage or only catch a little of the spotlight.

    Some of them are going to be big names in and of themselves. Some will be content to live lives of below-the-radar success. All of them, however, are worth a peek, and a nod, and might just teach you a bit about the very famous brothers and sisters you thought you knew.

    Chloë Grace Moretz and Trevor Duke-Moretz
    Young Moretz has been bringing her older, far taller brother to premieres since forever now, and it’s always a pleasure to see the striking 27-year-old. An actor himself, he’s been helping steer his little sister through all the twists of Hollywood and, as she says, keeping her grounded through endless press tours and camera ops.

    But it’s more than that. As she told us in November, Trevor’s sometimes difficult coming out has changed the younger Moretz’s view on sexuality. “To see my brothers struggle with the anxiety of having to come out was awful,” she told us. The upside is that seeing all that helped her become the progressive young woman we love so much.

    Dylan Efron and Zac Efron
    Wait, what—there’s more Efron out there? Yes, indeed there is, and Dylan is almost as cute and crushable as his older brother. Currently, he’s not listed as anything other than a former student, however he did offer the world this charming, Zac-themed poem:

    “My brother is a movie star/ And is only sixteen / He doesn’t have a job yet / Still, he thinks he is the queen / If he lost me at a show / I’ll be he would not care a bit / He won’t even try to look / But my mom would throw a fit / yes, he does have a good side / That shows up once in a while / He watches my sports / Which puts upon me a smile / I guess he isn’t that bad / If I think about it twice / He helps me with my homework / And always gives advice / If there’s any hatred going on / It’s a brotherly thing / If we fight no one gets hurt / Brothers have to fight, I think.”

    Okay, it ain’t Wordsworth, but it is adorable.

    Poppy Chloe and Cara Delevingne
    Delevingne, Delevingne,
    First came Poppy. Then came Cara. But the eldest Delevigne sister, Chloe, never made much of a splash outside of looking beautiful alongside her glowing siblings. Outside of the British socialite circles she operates in, Chloe is not a superstar, focusing more on family and under-the-radar professional pursuits. It doesn’t make her any less elegant than her sisters though. Love this trio.

    Hallie and Jesse Eisenberg
    So here’s the funny thing about these two: Though Jesse is almost a decade older than his sister, it was she who had the fast, early start in acting. Perhaps best known as the “Pepsi Girl,” Hallie has 18 credits on IMdB, almost all of them from roles in her childhood. Her acting career has hit a bit of a slow patch—she last appeared with brother Jesse in 2010’s Holy Rollers—but perhaps she has found a new calling while studying at college. We’ll keep an eye on this one.

    Scott and Chris Evans
    Even many of those who aren’t attracted to the male species harbor crushes on Chris Evans. He’s funny, charming, Captain America, and, well, just look at the dude. But he doesn’t come without support. Younger brother Scott is also an actor (One Life to Live), a charmer, and, as seen on various late-night and public appearances with Chris, quite the joker himself. Watch for yourself and enjoy.

    Lana Del Rey and Chuck Grant
    Even the most casual LDR fans know she came up as Lizzie Grant. Well, Lizzie Grant has a sister and she’s damned stylish in her own right. Born Caroline, Chuck is already a very established, very cool photographer in her own right, having shot editorials with her sister on top of creating content for The Fader, New York Magazine, Complex, and Galore. Basically, you’ve been seeing plenty of her work—be it a Lana snap or a Topshop campaign—for years. Surprise!

    India Yelich-O’Connor and Lorde
    Yes, you know that Lorde is an ageless wood spirit brought into corporeal form by an ancient spell cast by a Wiccan priestess in a last-chance bid to save humanity from itself—but did you know she also has a sister? Unless you’re deep into Lorde yourself, you wouldn’t know that. India Yelich-O’Connor is the younger and seemingly equally precocious sis of Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor (aka Lorde) and a musician herself. We’ve already pegged her as “one to watch,” so keep your eyes peeled.

    Kate and Lottie Moss
    Who is that pretty, pretty pony next to Kate Moss? Why, it’s not a pretty pony at all. Rather it’s younger—much younger—sis Lottie who is, yes, a bit of a burgeoning model herself. She’s currently on her way up and has the benefit of that name. In the end, though, it is still very much undecided if this will be her career or a quick, fun stopover before university, training, and something completely different.

    Aimee Osbourne
    Now better known as ARO, the sister to Jack and Kelly and the daughter of Ozzie and Sharon, Aimee utterly dodged the cameras when the rest of her family took to reality television. It’s hard to blame her, right?

    In recent years she’s moved forward with a music career, producing some very, very sharp tunes. While she may have hid away for a long time, we’re reasonably sure you’ll know her name and her voice pretty soon.

    Emma Watson and Alex Watson
    If those aren’t a couple of statues carved out of fine Italian marble and dressed in sharp, tailored threads, then they must be Emma and Alex Watson. Indeed, they both seem sculpted from the same stuff and, yes, it’s those killer looks that have landed young Alex a career in the modeling world (and his own “Fuck Yeah” Tumblr page). He’s also popped into the backgrounds of Harry Potter films. Go ahead a look for him. We’ll wait.

    Rihanna and Rajad Fenty
    Now, Rajad Fenty, Rihanna’s little bro, is nowhere as near accomplished as his older sister. But ease up, he’s a mere 19, and, from the looks of everything, a fairly normal—if very good looking—young dude. That said, he is certainly living the life. His adventures with RiRi are well documented on his Instagram, thus giving us a look into the superstar’s life we might not otherwise have. Bless, Rajad. Bless.

    Lady Gaga and Natali Germanotta
    Much like India Yelich-O’Connor, Natali Germanotta has held on the family name that her older musician sister cast off in her rise to fame. Much like Gaga, though, Germanotta has dived head first into art and artistry, starting with an education at the esteemed Parsons School of Design and continuing with a fashion line, art projects, and more creative endeavors. While she’s still out in the wings, it wouldn’t surprise us at all to see her center stage very soon.
