The worst part of being a celebrity, undoubtedly, must be family reunions. All those cousins coming out of the woodwork, asking you to pass along their script or snag an autograph or even help Aunt Agatha buy that new hot tub that she desperately needs.
Then there are those happy few stars who don't have to face this problem. Because their cousins are famous, too.
In honor of Cousins Day – July 24, to be exact – here are several celebrity cousins who don't have to worry about being the only famous person at their family reunion.

Justin Timberlake brought sexy back – and plenty of A-list wattage – to his sold-out concert at Roseland Ballroom in New York on Sunday night.
Performing songs from his new album The 20/20 Experience during a two-hour show, the pop star was supported by his wife Jessica Biel and pals like Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde, Andy Samberg, Joanna Newsom, Brooke Shields and Uma Thurman.
Biel, dressed in a navy tank top and white pants, had a blast rocking out in the VIP mezzanine area during the show, which was sponsored by MasterCard. "She knew all the words to his songs and was dancing the whole time," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked very proud."

Not so fast.
Following last week's news that original co-host Joy Behar will be leaving The View, along with rumors that Brooke Shields will be coming aboard to replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters attempted to set the record straight on Monday's program.
Walters, who made her entrance at the top of the show on Hasselbeck's arm, looked at the camera and said she wished to address "a particularly false story." She said that reports that Hasselbeck's opposing political views, as expressed on the show, were not forcing her removal.
"We love Elisabeth," said Walters, who also said that the others appreciate her political differences, too.

Teri Shields, who long exerted an iron fist in guiding the career of her daughter Brooke Shields from the time the actress-model was 11 months old, died in Manhattan last Wednesday after what is described as a long illness.
She was 79 and had suffered from dementia, a spokesperson for Brooke Shields told The New York Times, which reported the elder Shields's death.
"My mother was an enormous part of my life and of who I am today," Brooke says in a statement. "I loved her, laughed with her, and respected her. And although she had her share of struggles, she was my mom."

What do you need to play the neighbor from hell?
How about garish swimsuit, a mullet haircut, ink, belly-button ring, an unseasonable tan and an antagonistic attitude.
Brooke Shields, playing trashy neighbor Rita Glossner, had them all in spades – not to mention that at 5'11" she towers over the ABC sitcom's leading lady, Patricia Heaton – on Wednesday night's episode of The Middle.
Rita, convinced that Frankie Heck (Heaton) has stolen the Glossner garden hose, promises to rain fire down on the Heck household. In the reign of terror that ensues, Frankie even chips a tooth, though it is all her own fault.

What's with the clothes?
As filming continues in Puerto Rico for Lifetime's TV remake of The Blue Lagoon, it looks like producers are taking a more modest approach to costumes than Brooke Shield's no-top-no-problem take in the iconic 1980 film.
This time, Australian actress Indiana Evans is making her splash in the lagoon outfitted in denim shorts and a (fittingly) blue bikini top.
While Shields, then 15, wore what PEOPLE at the time described as "artfully shredded dinner napkins," Evans, 21, has been photographed on-set in button-down shirts and jeans as the shipwrecked Emmaline.

It's been more than two months since their beloved 13-year-old dog Darla passed away from cancer, but Brooke Shields and her family are still reeling from the loss.
"It's very sad, actually," she tells PEOPLE. "We're all in that sort of trauma where we have her ashes and the girls [Rowan, 8, and Grier, 5] carry these little footprints of hers around. She was the only dog we've really ever had."
The American bulldog was given to Shields as a puppy, and was a member of the family, taking a central role in many memories over the years.
"She knew I was pregnant before I even knew I was pregnant," Shields says. "She would circle me and not let me walk anywhere, I was going, 'God, what are you doing, get out from under my feet!' And that afternoon I found out."
