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.

One of the most frequently asked Nicolas Cage questions (FANCQ's) remains, is he in on the joke? Does he know about the memes? The videos? His strange second life as an Internet celebrity?
This shirt is Exhibit A in the argument that, yes, Cage knows exactly what's going on.

He's up all night to get lucky, not because he's an ageless vampire whose skin would burst into flames if it ever came into contact with sunlight.
Ever since Pharrell Williams turned 40 in April, the Internet has been entranced by his seemingly ageless nature: Pictures of the prolific producer show his face barely having changed since his Neptunes heyday.
Like so many times before, the Web decided the mystery of Williams's fresh looks had a simple explanation: He was a vampire, and thus doomed to walk the earth in the body of a man in his late 20s until some brave hero drove a stake through his heart.

Tuesday marks Nicolas Cage's 50th birthday. Instead of a cake or a surprise party, we're marking the occasion by recounting the many ways he's given us, his fans, reason to celebrate over the past five decades.
To be honest, star turns in Hollywood (such as 1995's Oscar winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas) are not even at the top of our list. Instead, we're talking about another medium where Cage's particular brand of fame has found recognition: the World Wide Web. On this special day, let us revisit why Cage deserves to be crowned King of the Internet:

To play Ghost Rider, the vigilante antihero whose head is a flaming skull, Nicolas Cage looked to source material that was close to home.
"When you're playing something that's completely outside of your reference point, who you want to project as kind of like a bad dream, something enigmatic, something you don't understand, you have to look at other sources to inspire the body language," Cage told Kelly Ripa and Josh Groban on Live! With Kelly last month.

Is Nicolas Cage undead and loving it?
Addressing one of the more bizarre rumors about his personal life, the actor says he's almost certain he's not a time-traveling vampire whose image was said to have been captured in a Civil War-era photo of a man resembling Cage.
"I don't drink blood, and last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection," Cage told David Letterman on Thursday night's Late Show.
Promoting his film Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengance, Cage does acknowledge he could be confused with the Tennessee man in the 1870 photo that an eBay seller had pitched as a "walking undead/vampire" who "reinvents himself once every 75 years."
"Let me say that there is a resemblance," says Cage, "but how can I be polite about this. It's a somewhat slowed-down version of me."
