12. Rashida Jones
Rashida Jones is most known for her starring role as Anne Perkins on the hit TV series, Parks and Recreation, and also starred in ‘I Love You, Man’ opposite Paul Rudd. But what you probably didn’t know is that Rashida’s father is Quincy Jones.
If you don’t know who Quincy Jones is, just know that the world famous Michael Jackson hit, ‘Thriller’ would not have been possible without him. Quincy was a famous record producer back in the 80’s and he produced Michael Jackson’s albums ‘Off The Wall’ which sold 20 million copies worldwide and more importantly ‘Thriller’ which went on to sell 110 million copies worldwide making it the highest selling album of all time. He was the Dr. Dre to Michael Jackson’s Eminem.
But other than producing, he was also a world renown musician, composer, record executive and entrepreneur who has had a record 79 Grammy nominations and 27 Grammy award wins. He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Rashida has huge shoes to fill, but she is making a name for herself one laugh at a time.
