“Children of Nebo,” the controversy that rocks Hollywood

But what is this new planet-shaking controversy that has Lily-Rose Depp, Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and even Tom Hanks talking about?

The term “new kids” is a contraction of “children of patronage,” meaning “children” or rather children whose careers benefited from the status of their family members, more precisely their parents.

In recent months, the topic has become “controversial” on social networks, more specifically when netizens, fans of the excellent series “Euphoria”, realized that Maude Apatow – whose character gained importance in the second season – was the daughter of … Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann . And what about the director of the series, Sam Levinson, the son of director Barry Levinson?

It was enough for the phenomenon to accumulate rapidly and become a topical topic for the New York electronic magazine “Vulture” which decided, a few weeks ago, to participate in a review of all the “new kids”, that is, say children of stars who follow – with varying degrees of success – in the footsteps of their parents.

I never really understood what qualities employed me.” […] The current conversation about “newborns” is designed to belittle, denigrate and harm them.

Lily-Rose Depp is one of the first “new kids” to vocalize strongly about the term, which quickly became an insult. In the pages of the monthly “Elle” magazine, the actress and model for Chanel did not smile at the words. “Netizens care more about your family than the people who cast you for roles. Maybe that helps get your foot in the door, but that’s it. After that, there’s a lot of work to do.”

And the young woman adds, “It’s a term I hear a lot for women and I don’t think it’s a coincidence.”

Actually. Maya Hawke? Daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke. Margaret Qualley? Andie MacDowell’s daughter. Ireland Baldwin? Daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin. lily collins? Daughter of Phil Collins. Zoe Kravitz? Daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. dylan ben? Daughter of Robin Wright and Sean Penn. Malia Obama, who’s working on a script for an Amazon series? No need for an answer.

For the sake of parity, we sometimes hear about Jack Quaid, son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan and of course Brooklyn Beckham, son of Victoria and David Beckham, who, for his part, is certainly not able to build a career. Last week, Tom Hanks stepped up to defend his son, Truman Hanks, starring alongside him in Life According to Otto.
