Legendary actresses of cinema live not only in our hearts, but also in the beauty of their charming heiresses. Who are they, the granddaughters of Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor (and not only)?
For the film industry, the era of radical changes and discoveries was the “Age of Golden Hollywood”, which fell in the 1930s and 1960s. That time gave us many famous actresses who are still considered icons. The beauty and talents of many of them were inherited by their granddaughters. The most interesting things about the heiresses of the legends of world cinema were collected together with the singer and blogger Tatiana Sorokina.
Lucia Sofia Ponti, granddaughter of Sophia Loren
Lucia Sofia Ponti
Sophia Loren is an Italian singer and actress, winner of various awards and a real sex symbol of her time. For the first time in Hollywood, she flashed in 1957 in the film “Pride and Passion”, after which she became one of the brightest representatives of the golden era of Hollywood. But the pinnacle of her acting career was the role of her mother in “Chochara”, after which offers from Hollywood directors showered on the star.
Now the eldest granddaughter of Sophia Loren Lucia Sofia Ponti is already 14 years old. She is professionally engaged in dancing and participates in various competitions with her team. Of course, she has the data to become a star of the big screens, which was her grandmother, but Lucia herself is not striving for this yet. The girl has obvious external similarities with Sophie, despite the fact that she is blonde.
Emma Ferrer, Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter
Audrey is a symbol of charm, beauty and style for many generations. We know the actress from her roles in such cult films as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Roman Holiday, for which she won an Oscar.
In 2014, Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer got on the cover of a western glossy publication — at that time she was 24 years old. She received an art education, worked as a model with famous brands, but did not want to continue her career as a model. On her Instagram, she shares paintings with subscribers, talks about herself and her diagnosis (Emma was diagnosed with Graves’ disease). Young Emma is also a UNICEF ambassador, as was her grandmother at the time.
Naomi Wilding, Elizabeth Taylor’s granddaughter
The real “queen of Hollywood”, an Anglo-American actress, three times awarded the Academy Award — it’s all about Elizabeth Taylor. In addition to being a star of the screens, her personal life was a separate “star” in all newspapers and magazines.
Elizabeth was married eight times . One of her granddaughters, Naomi Walding, is over 40 years old. It was her grandmother who instilled in her a love of fashion: as a child, she took her around her dressing rooms and instilled in her a sense of style. Probably, it was thanks to this that Naomi became a stylist. She is also the director of a fashion magazine and the owner of a gallery. Naomi inherited at least one attractive detail of her appearance from her grandmother — her rare eye color.
Stephanie Pauline Grace Ducret and Jasmine Grace Grimaldi, Grace Kelly’s granddaughters
The icon of “Golden Hollywood”, who later became the wife of the Prince of Monaco, conquered many hearts. A great actress and an amazingly beautiful woman — all this is Grace Kelly. During her short career, she won an Oscar and became the highest-grossing actress of her time.
Unfortunately, Grace’s life ended tragically: the star died in a car accident, but she left behind not only wonderful roles, but also very beautiful granddaughters who are not deprived of her genes.
Stephanie Pauline Grace Ducret
Jasmine Grace Grimaldi
One of them is the eldest daughter of Princess Stephanie Pauline Grace Ducret, who rarely accompanies the princely family anywhere. The girl has a great sense of style and is going to launch her fashion brand. Outwardly, she does not look much like her famous grandmother, but there is no denying that she has a special beauty and inner charisma.
Grace’s other granddaughter, Jasmine Grace Grimaldi, the illegitimate daughter of Prince Albert II, followed in the footsteps of her famous grandmother and became an actress. Now the girl is 29 years old — she is active in public activities and is acting in films.
Elettra Wiedemann-Rossellini, granddaughter of Ingrid Bergman
Winner of the Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy Awards, Swedish actress who conquered Hollywood, and is best known for the film “Casablanca”. They say that it was she who brought freshness, femininity and vitality to the American cinema screen. Ingrid has a daughter, actress Isabella Rossellini, who gave her an equally beautiful and interesting granddaughter.
Elettra Wiedemann-Rossellini has a degree in arts and biomedicine, she also has a very successful modeling experience and writing, namely cookbooks. Externally, the grandmother and granddaughter are very similar, but each has its own distinctive features, for which the camera loves them in its own way.
Dakota Johnson, granddaughter of Tippi Hedren

The American actress has starred in major films since the 1940s and 1950s, but it was only in the 60s that Alfred Hitchcock noticed her talent and invited her to play in his film “Birds”. The granddaughter of this actress is no less famous actress Dakota Johnson, who played the main role in the film “50 Shades of grey”.
Dakota’s family is one of the most creative in Hollywood: both her mom, Melanie Griffith, and her grandmother Tippi are actresses. Perhaps that is why Dakota did not resist the genes and is now actively acting in films. Externally, the grandmother and granddaughter are hardly similar, but spiritually very close: Dakota has repeatedly stated that her grandmother is an example of a truly strong woman for her.
