Missed #5, #7, and #9.
I think I did 'relatively' well, guessing.

NONE of these emotionally needy children of REAL stars are stars in my eyes. Just pretenders trying to ride a parent's coattails to success.

I differ from your opinion.
The ONLY one who fit's your definition is Jaden Smith.
The rest are stars in their own right.
They have honed their craft, and risen to the stardom they have worked for.
In my opinion, Jaden Smith will always be a wannabe star.
