Some celebrities were just born into stardom, and some people have decided to express their displeasure of it. Now, Jamie Lee Curtis, referring to herself as OG Nepo Baby, has weighed in.
Nepo is, of course, short for nepotism — which is favoritism in action. No better example exists than that of Hollywood, where children of well-known actors are very frequently getting acting jobs over those who don’t have a famous relative.
The “nepo baby” term has been growing in popularity recently, and even inspired a New York Mag article a few days ago that became so popular that some of these so-called nepo babies felt the need to respond.
Everyone from Jack Quaid to O’Shea Jackson had something to say about the article. Lilly Allen, daughter of actor Keith Allen and producer Alison Owen, had a complicated response. She tweeted that she feels like she deserves nothing after originally trying to deflect the attention on her.
