When it comes to famous families, we were pretty sure we had it down. You’ve got your Olsens, your Hemsworths--hell, even your Deschanels. So we were shocked to find out that the patron saint of feminism is actually Batman’s stepmom. Read on for more celebrities you might not have known were related.

celebs coppola

Sofia Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Nicolas Cage

Relation: first cousins. There are some Godfather-level family ties here, with director Francis Ford Coppola at the crux.

celebs shields

Brooke Shields and Meryl Streep

Relation: second cousins. Gorgeous, smart and accomplished. Is there an opening for a third wheel?

Stanley Tucci and Emily Blunt

Relation: sister-in-law/brother-in-law. The Devil Wears Prada costars have a much less chilly relationship IRL--Tucci is married to Blunt’s older sister Felicity.

Taryn Manning and Peyton and Eli Manning

Relation: second cousins. These three have among them four Super Bowl rings and one SAG award.
