Good looks are pretty important in Hollywood, so it shouldn't be a surprise that celebrities sometimes get compared to their own offspring in terms of attractiveness. Sometimes, of course, famous people age gracefully and give up the spotlight to their children - but that's no fun. What really gets us is when a celebrity ages so well and stays so charming that he (or she) ends up surpassing his/her kid in the sexiness department. Sometimes this is because the celebrity carries him or herself so well, and sometimes this is because the celebrity's kids are just plain ugly. But it's always fun to compare celebrity dads to their sons and celebrity moms to their daughters.
This list of celebrities who are hotter than their kids has everyone from supermodels to Academy Award-winning actors to reality stars, but all of these beautiful people have one thing in common: red-hot hotness levels. Just look at Pierce Brosnan next to his son and try not to marvel at how sexy the man still is, even into his sixties. And then check out Kris Jenner next to Khloe and try not to feel bad for Khloe's lack of luck in the looks department. (But don't feel bad for too long... she's filthy rich, after all.)Not all celebrities pass on their good genes and hot looks to the next generation. Many of these celebrity children are making names for themselves in their own rights, but none of them has managed to pass their famous parents in the looks department. So vote up the hottest celebrity parents below, those famous moms and dads who are definitely better looking and sexier than their children.
We'll put it this way: Demi was married to Ashton Kutcher and her daughter, Rumer Willis, was not.

Jillian Hervey is adorable enough, but her mother, singer/actress/producer Vanessa Williams, is just getting more beautiful by the year.
Beverly Johnson was 21 years old when she became the first black model to grace the cover of Vogue. That was in 1974, and she doesn't seem to have aged one bit since then. It'll be hard for her daughter Anansa Sims to surpass her in beauty.
Meryl Streep (right, when she was younger) has won nineteen Oscar nominations and, apparently, hung onto all of the good genes.
