    Hollywood Families That Are Flagbearers Of Nepotism

    Hollywood is truly the place where dreams come true. But it’s also the place where dreams are manufactured, bought, and given to the privileged ones who come from fame and name. For a long time, the concept of nepotism has been heavily criticized in the industry, whereas self-made celebrities have to compete with others in the same field but with greater influence and popularity.

    A huge example of this is the Kardashian clan, a bunch of average, often called almost talentless celebrities, who are some of the richest people in the industries they are from. Here are five families who used nepotism as their brand and weapon to get to the top and what they have said about it.

    The Hadid Family

    Yolanda Hadid, Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid

    Former Dutch model Yolanda Hadid had an extensive fifteen-year-old career in the field of modeling. Soon after she got married to Mohammad Hadid and left modelling. But her legacy was continued by her two, now three daughters, Bella, Gigi, and Alana Hadid.

    Speaking about nepotism, Gigi Hadid has said, “Technically I’m a nepotism baby. I’ve always acknowledged that I come from privilege.” She then added, “My parents told me, ‘Just because you have parents who were successful, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t walk into the job being as nice and as hard-working as you can be.’”

    As for Bella Hadid, despite being a nepo kid, she has performed outstandingly in her field. Known as one of the best models of the decade and generation, she has set a place for herself through her philanthropy, hard work and constantly proving that she deserves the privilege she has.

    The Smith Family

    Jada, Willow, Will and Jaden Smith

    Will Smith has had a successful career in the field of acting. Joined by his wife Jada, who also has had some successful projects in her career, the couple have also launched their two children in the music industry, where they were quick to find success.

    Willow and Jaden are both musicians of different genres. While Willow has had a few successful songs to her credit, Jaden has been labeled as talentless by many.

    When asked about how Willow feels about the label, she said, “I don’t focus on how other people feel about me. If you love me, amazing. If you hate me, fantastic. That’s none of my business. I was put on this planet to be someone who uplifts the lives of people with my art and my words and that’s it. That’s pretty much how I feel. Anyone can feel how they feel, and I don’t mind.”

    The Baldwin Family

    Another Hollywood dynasty is the Baldwin dynasty. The Baldwins are one of the most established and famous Hollywood families. The well-known Baldwin brothers, Alec, Daniel, Billy, and Stephen Baldwin made space for their kids to have an easier time in the industry, often landing jobs and positions that have been criticized to be less deserved, or a marriage with one of the biggest pop stars of the generation.

    As a model, Hailey Baldwin Bieber has often received criticism for her stiff walk on the runway. Soon enough she left that part of her job and now focuses on her skincare brand and magazine covers.

    Bieber even sported a ‘nepo kid’ T-shirt, embracing the privilege she comes from, while addressing it she said, “When you’re out and about and people are stopping your dad or uncle and asking for pictures, you start to understand why. That was me being, like, ‘I’m very aware of the situation [and] I’m going to wear it loud and proud because you are already labeling me as such and it’s true.’”

    The Cyrus Family

    The Cyrus Family

    Billy Ray Cyrus’ success gave way to the rise of one of the biggest pop stars of this generation and our favorite Disney character. Miley Cyrus, Trace Cyrus and Noah Cyrus both went on to become successful musicians, following the footsteps (and recipes) of their father.

    Talking about nepotism, Trace addressed these are just statements and said, “I love my family so much but I think I’d be much more successful if I wasn’t part of a famous family. People immediately want to judge me and discredit all my hard work because of who I’m related to. But that’s so far from the truth. I got a record deal without anyone from my label even knowing who I was related to till after they signed me.”

    Miley has also acknowledged her privilege and has credited her father to her success.

    The Kardashian-Jenner Family

    Is it even possible to talk about nepotism without mentioning the biggest nepo babies of the industry? Yep, absolutely not.

    Starting with a lawyer husband and a air hostess career, Kris Jenner managed to make five millionaires and two billionaires in the family, and a bunch of mega- successful businesses in the empire.

    Talking about being a product of nepotism, Kendall has said, “I understand that I fall under the umbrella of the Kardashian sisters. It’s just weird to me because I am just like my dad in so many ways,” She then added, “I considered myself one of the luckiest people on the planet to be able to live the life that I live. But I do think that it’s challenging for me a lot more than it’s not.”
