Kate Hudson says she sees nepotism in other industries ‘Much more than I see it in Hollywood’

Kate Hudson says she knows nepotism is real but feels it “doesn’t matter” if you work hard and it happens “a lot more” in industries outside of Hollywood.

In an interview with The Independent published on Saturday Glass onion star delves into the latest cycle of Hollywood’s nepotism debate while promoting the Rian Johnson-directed film Knives Out continuation. Hudson, who was among the performers listed for New York MagazineThe recent full-year Nepo-Baby said that when it comes to “the nepotism thing… I don’t really care.”

“I look at my kids and we’re a storytelling family,” she continued. “It’s definitely in our blood. People can call it what they want, but it won’t change it.”

Hudson, who was among the performers highlighted in New York Magazinethe recent “non-baby” film is the daughter of actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell (who themselves come from acting parents); has several siblings in the industry, including Wyatt Russell and Oliver Hudson; she is currently engaged to director Danny Fujikawa; and publicly supports her eldest son Ryder (from her marriage to Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes) with his own musical ambitions.

The Glass onion the actress went on to note that nepotism isn’t just something that exists in Hollywood, and pointed to other industries where she’s witnessed baby benefits in action. It’s something the magazine’s feature captures by looking at the presence of nepotism in everything from the publishing and art worlds to sports and fashion.

“Actually, I think there are other industries where that is [more common]. Maybe modeling?” she said. “I see it in a business way more than I see it in Hollywood. Sometimes I’ve been in business meetings where I’m like, wait, whose kid is that? Like, that person doesn’t know anything!”

Ultimately, Hudson says he cares less about someone’s historical relationship with entertainment and more about whether they work hard and get results. “I don’t care where you come from or what your relationship is with the business,” she explained. “If you work hard and kill it, it doesn’t matter.

Hudson is the latest member of the entertainment industry to engage in a renewed debate about the role nepotism has played in the careers of some of Hollywood’s biggest — and even lesser known — names. Others include O’Shea Jackson and Lily Allen, the latter of whom made a similar, more pointed version of Hudson’s argument.

“The babies you should worry about are the ones who work for law firms, the ones who work for banks and the ones who work in politics,” the singer, who is the child of actor Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen, he tweeted. “If we’re talking about real consequences and robbing people of opportunity. BUT that’s none of my business.”

Jamie Lee Curtis also responded that nepotism is real, but that “the current conversation about discomfort is designed to try to diminish, denigrate and hurt”.

“For the record, I’ve sailed through 44 years with the benefits of combined and mirrored fame, I’m not pretending there aren’t any, trying to tell me I’m worthless in and of myself,” she continued. “It’s strange how we immediately make assumptions and derisive remarks that someone who is related to someone else who is known for their art in their field somehow has no talent at all.”
