Celebrity Kids Who Avoided the Spotlight

Kathryn Whitworth| April 21, 2015


In Hollywood, lots of celebrities like the Kardashians have followed the course carved out by their famous parents. However, not all of them are ready to live a life of fame.

These days, plenty of them have avoided the prominence their name brings. They take on a whole new career for themselves, somewhere that is far away from all the flashing lights and the red carpet.

Aside from Tom Cruise‘s daughter Isabella Cruise and Harrison Ford’s son Benjamin Ford, who are both mentioned in this article, there are still a number of celebrity kids who prefer to stay out of the public eye. Know more about them below:

Isabella Cruise

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s adopted daughter, Isabella Cruise, has rejected the fame and fortune just to pursue her dream of becoming a hairstylist. She enrolled in a £15,000-worth 30-week course at the Vidal Sassoon Academy and is currently working at a prestigious salon.

Raymond Nicholson

Even if Raymond Nicholson’s father Jack Nicholson is an Oscar-winning actor, he prefers to stay behind the camera as an aspiring director. Raymond already has two assistant director credits with the films Boots and A Reunion.

Aimee Osbourne

For decades, the Osbournes have been in the TV and the music industry. However, one member stayed away from the spotlight.

Aimee Osbourne, the eldest daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has lived much of her life away from the public eye. While her family lives a life of fame, she remains private and anonymous up to now.

She admitted she disappointed her mother with her choice. She added, “Mum was hurt and we definitely had a tough time with disagreements. I’m more reserved and my private life is very important”.

Elizabeth Hanks

Rather than following the footsteps of her two-time Oscar winning dad, Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Hanks found herself in another career and this was as a publisher. She has worked as an associate news editor for the Huffington Post, wrote for The Guardian, and made contributions to various sites.

Cassandra Estevez

Cassandra Estevez is Paula Speert and Charlie Sheen’s daughter. She was born when Sheen was just 19 years old. While her father lives a high-profile lifestyle, she was able to stay away from it.

Last year, Cassandra gave birth to Sheen’s first grandchild. To his excitement, he said, “It’s like the world’s going to crack in half. It’s fabulous”.

Benjamin Ford

If your father is Harrison Ford, the pressure of becoming a great actor is in you. However, Benjamin Ford luckily avoided all the stress and chose a career in culinary arts. He is currently running Ford’s Filling Station, a top restaurant in Los Angeles.

Fifi Trixibelle

Fifi Trixibelle prefers to be called “unknown Geldof” as she successfully kept herself away from the public eye. Even if she is the daughter of Bob Geldof, an Irish singer, she was able to get herself a steady PR job.


Because of social media, the lives of Hollywood celebrities have become even more public. So, it is not that hard to comprehend why lots of celebrity kids are seeking refuge away from the eye of the general public. Even if they distanced themselves from the shadow of their famous parents, they still proved they can become successful on their own.
