While TikTok may have popularized the term “nepo babies” and revealed many of the more well-hidden scions in our midst (Timothée Chalamet and Zoey Deutch to name a few), the concept is nothing new. We’ve actually been calling them “scions” long before TikTok existed. Famous people have been birthing other famous people for decades and it makes sense that the offspring of the Hollywood elite would have a leg up when it comes to, well also joining the Hollywood elite. Many of these famous children have gone on to have successful and well-justified careers and while we don’t necessarily blame them for snatching the opportunities so clearly in front of them, the public years for a bit of acknowledgment of said privilege. And while some scions have been very good about that, others will be on their death bead, screaming, “having famous parents makes being in this industry harder because you have more to prove!” Sigh. Anyway, here’s what some of our favorite have said on the topic—the good, the bad, and the very delusional.
