I have decide to call this (potential) series “Duh” because in it I will chronicle people who I was surprised are related despite it being fairly apparent. Now, in my defense, when I hear the disclaimer “no relation” I typically never had assumed as much. In some ways I chalk it up to common last names. In other ways I chalk it up to my being a little less into biographies in this point in life than I once was.
Regardless of the reason for these brainfarts I figure why not highlight them such that someone else may avoid a similar mistake.
It was Oscar season when Bruce Dern was making the rounds for Nebraska that I discovered that Laura Dern is his daughter. And in confirming this I discovered that Diane Ladd is her mother.
This will definitely not be the last of these posts, but we’ll see how many of these “duh” moments come up.
