Some of the celebrities on this list were born into a family of famous folks, or they just happened to know the right people. Whatever the case, they didn’t do it all on their own. Some of the piggybacking celebrities put in a lot of work to get where they were, but they wouldn’t have become stars if it weren’t for a famous friend plucking them out of obscurity and giving them a leg up. If you’re prone to saying “must be nice,” you should start your engines now because these celebrities are only famous because of their friends.
Just because you're talented doesn't mean you're gonna make it. Take it from the passionate guitar player who moved to Hollywood to further his band: Johnny Depp. Depp first showed up in L.A to make his name in the music scene. It was only after his friend (Nicolas Cage) introduced him to an agent that his career took off.
