Actor and director Rashida Jones is the 46-year-old daughter of legendary musician Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton. Coming from a rich neighborhood in Bel Air and a family that was always under the spotlight, Rashida has confessed that it was difficult for her family to deal with the negative outlook of people on her parents' interracial marriage. According to The Guardian, Rashida credits her parents for the self-confidence she developed and for finding her own voice. She also admits that, unlike her siblings, she got to spend a lot of time with her father and as a result managed to get the best of him.

"My dad was a different parent to each one of them. I think my older sister would say he was never around. I have siblings who grew up in Sweden, when my dad and their mom got divorced, they came to live with us eventually, but my dad was around a lot for me," Jones said in a 2020 interview. "I feel very grateful for that. And it was just dumb luck. He happened to be at that place in his life, and I happened to be born. I do think that shaped who I am."
