Hollywood also isn’t lacking in siblings who show how ambition and success can shower just one family. National Siblings Day, which is commemorated on April 10, is a time to honor sibling relationships, so let’s celebrate celebrity sisters who have wowed us through their own success:

With Olympic titles, Wimbledon wins, and numerous record-breaking victories, the sisters have helped to change the way women are treated in athletic spaces.
While the sisters were often considered rivals, they haven’t let their competitiveness get in the way of their love for one another. After her final match in September, Serena credited her sister Venus with her success. “I wouldn’t be Serena if there wasn’t Venus, so thank you, Venus. She’s the only reason that Serena Williams ever existed,” she said in a post-match interview.
