A Low-Key Family
Unlike some other entertainment dynasties, Jake and indie sister Maggie come from a family of independent filmmakers. Mom Naomi is a screenwriter and dad Stephen is a director. (I imagine his upbringing to be a "Royal Tenenbaums" scenario). While their parents allowed Jake and Maggie to do some work (like baby Jakey in "City Slickers"), they didn't let it interfere with having a normal upbringing … how very un-Kardashian of them!
