Do you know who nepo babies are

The public has always been and continues to be attracted by celebrity children, but even while they do not believe they lack talent, they do see something wrong with them.

On social media, they are known as " nepo babies," and they are successful children of Hollywood stars who work in the same industry as their parents. The Guardian columnists attempted to discover who are nepo babies and why the public reacts negatively to them, as well as whether they are proof that meritocracy is dead.

Nepotism is abbreviated as Nepo. In this scenario, the baby represents the kid of someone who is already successful. It doesn't mean it's a baby, but it's a phrase that applies to the offspring of renowned parents of all ages.

There are most of them in the "Euphoria" series

A Twitter post regarding the performers from the series "Euphoria" offered more information on the baby question.

This post is fantastic for a variety of reasons. The first is that the series stars Leslie Mann, the wife of one of Hollywood's most powerful producers, Judd Apatow, and their daughter Maude Annabelle Apatow. Furthermore, as the internet would later discover, the director of the Euphoria series, Sam Levinson, is a nepotist. Barry Levinson, director of the films "Rain Man" and "Good Morning Vietnam," is his father.

The internet's anger at this type of nepotism had reached a fever pitch by the time this factoid appeared on Twitter. Dozens of child celebrities have been the target of social media posts about their famous parents, ranging from Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz) to Maya Hawke (daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke) to Dakota Johnson (daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith).

That's how members of the so-called Generation Z (those born after 1997 who have no memory of life before mobile technology) discovered for the first time that non-babies populate screens, music charts, and magazine pages, and generally achieve big creative breakthroughs considerably sooner than their contemporaries.

The public has always been and continues to be attracted by celebrity offspring, but even though they do not believe they lack talent, they still hold something against them.

The "Zedovs" were startled when Bloomberg published the article "Open your mind to the benefits of nepotism," and especially when New York magazine produced an incredible cover with nepo kids and a schematic of all Hollywood genealogical relationships.

What do nepo babies say?

Can we presume that nepo babies are indifferent and open about their privileges since we all know this happens and that connections are a known technique to go ahead in business?

Some nepotistic youngsters are upfront about being the children of renowned parents. Connor Cruise, for example, who was adopted by Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman when he was a month old, has no difficulty with being a nepo baby and once performed as a DJ next to a wax figure of Tom Cruise. Others, on the other hand, feel irritated when they are just seen as the children of famous parents, which is a frequent topic of interviews they give.

Let's say Lily-Rose Depp (Johnny Depp's daughter and Vanessa Paradis), who has benefited just as much from inherited cheekbones as inherited fame, said in an interview with Elle magazine: "It's strange to me that you reduce someone to just being there because he is someone's child," and he also believes this is a sexist approach. As a result of this statement, several top models reacted angrily in Instagram posts.

Meanwhile, in response to a Bloomberg piece, Zoe Kravitz told Ji-Q magazine, "It's absolutely normal to stay in the family business."

Gwyneth Paltrow (daughter of actress Blythe Danner and director Bruce Paltrow), in a conversation with colleague Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), explained how family ties can actually be an aggravating circumstance, because "when you get in the door thanks to your parents, you have to work twice as hard and to be twice as good to justify the trust".
