Is this proof genes skip a generation? The grandchildren of vintage stars who look just like their famous relatives

[*]This picture gallery of famous stars and their grandchildren shows that genes may in fact skip a generation 
[*]It shows stars like Paul McCartney, Kirk Douglas and Grace Kelly and compares them to their grandchildren
[*]They have a lot of shared features with their descendants, from the same eyes, to hair and the same smiles



The idea that genes skip a generation is a popular one and these revealing photos may finally be the evidence that's needed to prove the theory.
The images show famous stars and compare their likeness to their grandchildren - with stunning and surprising results.
The younger generation seem to be the spitting image of their illustrious, famous grandparents and they look almost indistinguishable in some cases. 
One set of photos show a young Paul McCartney pictured in his Beatles days in 1963 and compare him with his grandson Arthur, 18, who looks to have inherited his good looks.

Other vintage stars compared with their grandchildren include Kirk and Cameron Douglas, Grace Kelly and Charlotte Casiraghi and Steve and Steven R. McQueen.  
The stars have several shared features with their descendants, from the same eyes, to the same hair and even the same smiles.

Paul McCartney, pictured in his Beatles days back in 1963 seems, to have passed on his boyish good looks to his grandson Arthur (right) who is just 18 years old and has a similar face shape to his famous grandfather

Steve McQueen looks to have passed on more than just his name to his grandson Steven, pictured right, as the younger McQueen, 29, looks to have inherited his grandfather's chiseled good looks

Some of the stars have passed on specific features to their grandchildren, as shown by Priscilla Presley who has passed on her stunning eyes to her granddaughter actress Riley Keough, 28, pictured right

Clark James Gable looks to be the spitting image of his famous grandfather Clark, with the handsome 29-year-old appearing to be a duplicate from his brow down to his lips

In a more adorable comparison, singer Lulu (pictured left) has passed on both her expression and her hair colour and style to her cute young granddaughter Lulu

And this photo shows that some family features survive the passage of time with Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, 25, having the exact same dazzling smile as her grandmother Debbie Reynolds

Another case of the expression passing down the family line, as Kirk Douglas's eyes, mouth and lips - as well as the serious expression - are passed on to his grandson Cameron, 39

Tippi Hedren, 34 at the time of the photo, was a stunning beauty and it seems that her granddaughter is the spitting image with Dakota Johnson, 28, looking as if she could be her twin

This is a rare case where the granddaughter looks almost nothing like her illustrious grandmother but even then Elektra Bergman, 34, still has Ingrid Bergman's nose

And here, you can see Ryan O'Neal and Kevin McEnroe, both 31 in the photos, share the same distinctive brow, although the grandson looks more cheeky than his grandfather

Although Vanessa Redgrave and Daisy Bevan, 25, don't initially seem to have much in common when it comes to appearance, they both share the same stunning, startling blue eyes

Genes don't skip a generation, they just don't necessarily manifest themselves as a phenotype.
