Her father is Bryan Lourd, a mega agent in Hollywood, who actually represents George Clooney. Per Vanity Fair, Billie Lourd has said about her parents' views on her pursuing an acting career:

"the one thing they'd all say my whole life was: 'The last thing you want to be is an actress.' They wanted me to be a doctor, a C.E.O., a trashman. Basically anything but an actress."
