Kate Hudson sees nepo babies ‘way more’ in other industries: ‘It doesn’t matter’


December 26, 2022 | 11:56am

Kate Hudson isn’t buying into the nepo baby debate.

The “Glass Onion” star, who was included in a chart for the controversial “Year of the Nepo-Baby” New York magazine article published last week, believes that nepotism happens “way more” outside of Hollywood.

“I actually think there are other industries where it’s [more common],” the actress, who was raised by mom Goldie Hawn and stepdad Kurt Russell, said in a Saturday interview with The Independent. “Maybe modeling?

“I see it in business way more than I see it in Hollywood,” the 43-year-old continued. “Sometimes I’ve been in business meetings where I’m like, ‘Wait, whose child is this?’ Like, ‘This person knows nothing!’”

The actress claimed there is “way more” nepotism in industries besides Hollywood.

The “Almost Famous” star, whose brothers, Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell, are also actors, claimed that nepotism “doesn’t matter” in the end.

“I don’t care where you come from, or what your relationship to the business is … if you work hard and you kill it,” Kate explained.

The Golden Globe winner noted that she’s from “a storytelling family,” saying, “It’s definitely in our blood. People can call it whatever they want, but it’s not going to change it.”

The Fabletics co-creator has three children of her own, including son Ryder with Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson, and she has been supportive of the 18-year-old’s musical ambitions.

Kate also shares son Bingham, 11, with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, as well as daughter Rani, 4, with her fiancé, director Danny Fujikawa.

The “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” star isn’t the only nepo baby to wade into the controversy recently.

Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, blasted the viral article on Friday, calling the conversation designed to “diminish and denigrate and hurt” people.

“I have been a professional actress since I was 19 years old … [and] there’s not a day in my professional life that goes by without my being reminded that I am the daughter of movie stars,” the “Freaky Friday” star wrote in a lengthy Instagram statement.

O’Shea Jackson Jr., the son of rapper and actor Ice Cube also slammed the article tweeting that “once the door was opened it was up to [him] to walk through it and thrive.”

As for Heidi Klum’s model daughter, Leni told People in October that while she “did get help starting off,” she is now “doing the work and putting in the time.”

The 18-year-old added, “I’m working on my own, traveling alone, going to school. My mom and I just have the same love for the same thing.”
