Can the success of these familiar faces be put down to their loving, though sometimes critical, large number of siblings?

Growing up in a large family often means having brothers and sisters who inspire, challenge, and encourage you to be the best you can be — with fights for the bathroom and a dash of sibling rivalry thrown in for good measure. So it’s no surprise that some of the most successful celebrities have been shaped from an early age by their large number of siblings and the unconditional love they experienced in their families.

From big sisters who’ve set their brothers on the road to stardom, to parents who’ve created a supportive clan to keep their superstars grounded, click on launch slideshow below to see what these 9 household names have to say about their most critical, but loving, fan-club.
