      Thanks! I didn't know about Jessica Alba either. I've seen Abigail Breslin in movies and I've seen Spencer in the Santa Claus movies but never knew they were related.

      Knew some of these...I have followed the Esteves/Sheen brothers since they were teens,same with the Dillon brothers. I didn't know that Jessica Alba had an acting sibling, nor did I know that Abigail Breslin did....great job!

      Well if they've done any acting or comedy or even directing or anything really that would make their names come up in google, I'd say they count. Ha-ha. There's a lot more people I was going to do but decided to stick to a list of 10, didn't want it to run too long. I've never heard of that movie so thanks for the recommendation!

      I don't know if they count as celebrities, but my favorite "celebrity" siblings are Joel and Ethan Coen. Man, what a slew of great movies those brothers have made!

      As for the choices you've included, hands down, my favorites are John and Joan Cusak. You should see them together in Gross Pointe Blank!

      Oh I know! I thought he was older for sure. It was very interesting doing all of the research for this hub. Most of the people I knew but a few I didn't like Spencer and Abigial Breslin and I didn't know Jessica Alba had a brother.

      Most surprised about Charlie Sheen being the younger. Looks are deceiving. Very interesting hub.
