It seems that a new scandal has flared up in the modeling industry. It’s all because of Lily-Rose Depp’s interview for the American ELLE, in which she spoke about the premiere of the Idol series on HBO and her career.
On social networks, Johnny Depp’s daughter is often called nepo baby. The term comes from the word “nepotism”, meaning privileges to relatives or friends of celebrities. “People may have preconceived notions about you or how you got into the industry. And I can definitely say that nothing guarantees a role, except for the fact that you are suitable for it, ”said Depp. “There is much more discussion on the Web about what family you are from than how castings go. Yes, certain doors may be opened for you, but after that there is a lot of work to be done.
“It is strange to reduce the success of a person only to the idea that he was born in the right family. It just doesn’t make any sense. If someone’s mom or dad is a doctor, and then the child becomes a doctor, you won’t say, “Well, you’ve been able to build a career as a doctor just because your parent is a doctor.” The man went to medical school and got trained. I also noticed that this is much more often said about women, I don’t think this is a coincidence, ”continued the star.
Model Vittoria Cerretti criticized Depp’s words. By the way, the catwalk star grew up in an ordinary family and began to develop her career from the age of 14. 10 years later, Vittoria became the face of Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Chanel, and also appeared on the covers of Vogue, Dazed and Pop Magazine.
“I came across an interview with the so-called “nepo baby”. Yes, I understand that we all work hard for success, but I would like to see you in my place, how would you last the first five years in modeling. You can tell a sad story about how difficult it was for you (even if at the end of the day you can always go cry at your father’s villa in Malibu). But what about not even being able to pay for your return home to your family? Or wait hours for a fitting or casting only to see the golden child pass you from the warm seat of his Mercedes, with a driver and assistant who care about his mental health? You have no fucking idea how much work you have to do to earn respect. It takes years, and you get everything on the first day for nothing. I know it’s not your fault, but please value your privileges and don’t forget what you owe your success to,” Ceretti wrote.
