Most of the celebrities we know today are homemade, i.e. they came to fame all by themselves. There is one category of celebrities who got there with very little outside support, and another who got there with the full support of family, friends, and loved ones. Most of the latter category was born into fame and chose to follow in their parents’ footsteps. This category will definitely include a certain Kathryn Eastwood, whose father is the celebrated actor, director, and producer Clint Eastwood.
We know that she received a lot of support from her family, but Kathryn is eager to achieve her own success and make a name for herself as an actress and writer.
