Is Maxwell Related to Steven Spielberg? The Truth Behind the Rumors

Maxwell is a contestant on the reality show “Claim to Fame”, where 12 people live in a house and try to guess each other’s famous relatives. The show has been generating a lot of buzz on social media, especially after the shocking revelation that Maxwell is the grandson of none other than Chuck Norris, the legendary martial artist and actor. But before that twist, many viewers were convinced that Maxwell was related to another Hollywood icon: Steven Spielberg, the director of classics like “Jaws”, “Jurassic Park”, and “E.T.”. How did this rumor start, and is there any truth to it? Here’s what we know.

The Similarities Between Maxwell and Spielberg

One of the reasons why some fans thought Maxwell was Spielberg’s grandson was because of their physical resemblance. Both men have similar facial features, such as blue eyes, brown hair, and a prominent nose. According to IMDb, Maxwell’s full name is Max Samuel Spielberg, which also sounds similar to Steven Allan Spielberg. Moreover, Maxwell’s grandfather (Chuck Norris) is a famous actor, which could imply that he has some connections to the film industry.

Another reason why some fans suspected Maxwell was Spielberg’s grandson was because of the clues in the house. In one of the rooms, there were two characters imprinted on the wall: a shark and a dinosaur. These are obvious references to “Jaws” and “Jurassic Park”, two of Spielberg’s most popular movies. Additionally, Maxwell told the other contestants that his grandfather was a singer and that he had a Hollywood Star as his biggest award. This could be interpreted as a hint to Spielberg’s musical collaborations with John Williams, the composer of many of his films’ scores, and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Truth About Maxwell’s Family

Despite these similarities and clues, Maxwell is not related to Steven Spielberg at all. He is actually the grandson of Chuck Norris, who is best known for his roles in “Walker, Texas Ranger”, “The Delta Force”, and “The Expendables 2”. According to POPSUGAR, Maxwell revealed his true identity in the first episode of “Claim to Fame”, but not before he was exposed as a cheater and disqualified from the competition. He was caught using a secret cell phone, which violated the rules of the show.

Maxwell’s real family is quite different from Spielberg’s. His parents are Mike Norris, Chuck Norris’ son from his first marriage, and Valerie Norris, Mike’s wife. He has three siblings: Greta Norris, Hannah Norris, and Danilee Kelly Norris. He also has several half-siblings from Chuck Norris’ second marriage to Gena O’Kelley: Dakota Alan Norris, Danilee Kelly Norris, Eric Scott Norris, and Dina Norris. According to WhatToWatch, Maxwell spoke about how his grandfather didn’t have a cell phone and was hard to get in touch with, often having to go through lawyers to talk to him.

The Conclusion

Maxwell is not related to Steven Spielberg, despite some rumors and speculations on social media. He is actually the grandson of Chuck Norris, who is also a famous actor but in a different genre. Maxwell tried to hide his true identity on “Claim to Fame”, but he was eventually exposed as a cheater and eliminated from the show. He may have some similarities with Spielberg, but they are not enough to prove any familial connection.
