In an interview with the American edition of “ELLE”, this Tuesday, January 24, Kaia Gerber spoke about her status as “daughter of”.

Kaia Gerber is the model’s daughter Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber. While she acknowledges that her parents played an important role in her success as a young model, this is not the case, according to her, when it comes to her new acting career. In an interview with the American version of ” SHE “, this Tuesday, January 24, Kaia Gerber addressed the root of her success by returning to her status as “ nepo baby (translate: child of nepotism, which describes someone who has achieved his position thanks to his family).

“Nepotism is widespread”

And, the model does not minimize the role that her parents may have had in launching her career. “I’m not going to deny the privilege I have,” she said. Even if it’s just having a really great source of information and someone giving me great advice, just for that, I feel very lucky. “Before continuing:” The mother always joked: “If I could call and reserve a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not for you”. But I managed to meet amazing people thanks to the mother, with whom I now have the opportunity to work. »

While she admits her parents may have helped her in the modeling industry, Kaia Gerber doesn’t believe the same is true for her burgeoning acting career. “With comedy, it’s so different. No artist is going to sacrifice their vision for someone’s child. That’s not how you make art, and what interests me is art,” she said. Before adding: “Besides, nobody wants to work with someone who is boring, who is not easy to work with and who is not nice. Yes, nepotism is prevalent, but I think if that was really what people make it out to be, we would see even more of it. »

During the interview, Kaia Gerber also shared one of the tips her mother gave her when she started modeling. Cindy Crawford then told her: “Be on time. Take the time to learn people’s names and be nice to everyone. If you are not grateful and happy to be, there is someone who will be. So even when she was tired, Kaia Gerber always remembered how lucky she was.
