We should remember that many of us are “nepo” infants.

The term “nepo baby” refers to performing artists with famous parents in the business. Maya Hawke, for instance, whose parents are Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. New York’s “Guide to the Hollywood Nepo-Verse” captures this air of knowing cynicism. Some have argued that it is fair, because what they’re passing on isn’t advantage — it’s the “family business”. The door to Hollywood success is at least firmly closed when a famous name opens it.
