11 Actors Who Played the Older Sibling Even Though They’re the Younger Star
Looking young in Hollywood is pretty much a career requirement for actors and actresses. So, if you’re an actor and play the eldest sibling to someone who is actually older than you in real life, you’ve basically hit the exact OPPOSITE of the genetic jackpot in Hollywood terms. (No offense.)
Don’t get us wrong, though — just because you have a more mature face doesn’t mean you can’t be a complete babe. In fact, you may be considered even more of a babe… but we digress. To get back on track, here are 11 actors who played the older sibling on screen, even though they’re the younger star in real life:
Steven R. McQueen to Nina Dobrev on The Vampire Diaries
You may know him as Jeremy Gilbert (a.k.a. Little Gilbert) on TVD — but did you know that his real-life alter ego is actually the elder actor between him and his on-screen sibling?
That's right, despite playing Nina Dobrev's younger brother (well... cousin, technically), Steven R. McQueen has nearly 6 full months on her. He was born on July 13, 1988; Nina was born on January 9, 1989.
