A famous last name won’t get you far, at least according to Gwyneth Paltrow.
During a visit to Hailey Bieber for an episode of his YouTube series Who’s in my bathroom?the Oscar-winning actress has opened up about the concept of nepotism in Hollywood, saying the kids of celebrities aren’t as advantaged in the industry as some might think.
“As someone’s child, you have access to other people, so it’s not a level playing field that way,” Gwyneth told Hailey on the July 27 episode. “However, I really feel like once you step into the door, which you unfairly walked into, you almost have to work twice as hard and be twice as good.”
Why, you ask me? As she shared, “Because people are willing to pull you down and say ‘You don’t belong there’ or ‘You’re only here because of your dad or Of your mother.
