The McCarthy's relationship extends beyond family ties. Thebubbly blonde got her curvy cousin's back after a hostile movie critic body-shamed the Bridesmaids star.

"For anyone to attack like that, it's just wrong and hurtful, and it doesn't do anyone any good," said Jenny. "Melissa's very, very talented and people know that."

Before she became widely known for her Gilmore Girls Sookie Saint James character, Melissa's first role was a spot on Jenny's short-lived and self-titled comedy series on NBC.

Although there is no bad blood between the first cousins, their relationship has faded over the years. Melissa skipped the former Playboy model's wedding in 2014.

Jenny also transformed into television and picked up a few conspiracy theories along the way.

Before Alfie became Theon Greyjoy, he survived the embarrassment from his older sister's not-so-nice tune, named 'Alfie'. Lily sang about not letting her baby brother waste his life sleeping, smoking weed, and playing games all day.

"I just can't sit back and watch you waste your life away. You need to get a job because the bills need to get paid."

Alfie enjoyed the song but pleaded with his sister not to release the song. Lily later stopped performing the song out of respect for him. He earned it. Good man, Alfie!

Jessica and Spielberg became a family after the Grey's Anatomy star's mom married the legendary filmmaker in 1991. Contrary to popular belief, Jess did not have it easy on the big screen. The View from the Top star says being related to Spielberg caused her antagonism from people who believed she had an unfair advantage.

While speaking to USA Today, Jess said most people she met wished "to see the underdog succeed, the girl who spent her last two dollars on the bus ticket" instead of her.

Despite the unintended consequences, the Valentine star developed a taste for her stepdad's 50 years' worth of work, especially E.T., which is her favorite. Nice pick, girl!
