Check out this list of famous children of alcoholics, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. It's no secret that many celebrities have struggled with addiction to alcohol, but many famous actors, actresses, and musicians were also raised by parents who were alcoholics. Some of these celebrities live sober lives because of the alcohol abuse that they witnessed growing up, while others were propelled into their own addictions.

Who is the most famous person who is the child of an alcoholic? Halle Berry tops our list. Halle Berry's father was an alcoholic with a history of abuse who abandoned the family when Berry was just a child. Drew Barrymore witnessed her father's drug abuse and alcoholism, which may have contributed to her own well publicized struggles.

Several famous men also grew-up with addicted parents. ´╗┐Charlie Sheen has famously dabbled in addictive substances, and his father, Martin Sheen, is a recovered alcoholic as well. Other famous people whose parents were alcoholics include Charlize Theron, Adele, and Demi Moore.

Do you think that growing up with an alcohol-addicted parent makes someone more likely to struggle with addiction themselves? Share your thoughts on the adult children of alcoholics in the comments section.
