Lily-Rose Depp Claps Back at People calling her a ‘Nepo Baby’
The Voyagers star has been criticized for being a nepo-baby. Some netizens claim that she gets her roles only because her parents are big stars. Depp shared that she was familiar with the opinion and said one only got a specific role if one was right for it and not because a person had connections. She clapped back at the internet users who took their time to bring out such opinions saying,
“The internet cares a lot more about who your family is than the people who are casting you in things.”
Depp compared her career to a doctor to point out that people did not question a doctor if their parents were also doctors. And similarly just because a celebrity had famous parents did not guarantee a role. Unless obviously, the individual was fit for the role. The King actor expressed how men were not judged for being a child of famous people as harshly as women were. And therefore being called a ‘Nepo baby’ was also misogynistic according to Depp.
