Kate Hudson on nepotism: 'if you work hard and you kill it, it doesn't matter'

Kate Hudson on nepotism: 'if you work hard and you kill it, it doesn't matter'
Kate Hudson is great in Knives Out 2: The Glass Onion. She?s definitely sending up a certain kind of privileged celebrity woman, the kind of tone-deaf, casually racist, vapid, past-her-prime beauty who gets by on her connections and her side-hustles. I can understand why Kate was cast, and I?m not saying that as a slam on Kate at all I actually like Kate Hudson a lot and I think she did a great job in The Glass Onion. But this definitely wasn?t a huge acting stretch for her. Kate has given several interviews to promote The Glass Onion, and the interviewers have started venturing into some of the topics of the day, namely ?cancel culture? and nepotism. From Kate?s interview in the Independent:

She?s well-liked by everyone because she keeps it real: ?I?ve not led a very traditional life, you know? Maybe that resonates? Women do come up to me and talk to me about their personal lives a lot. I think because I?ve always been really open and honest about everything. I could never be phoney about it. It?d be exhausting.?

What Kate thinks of people being ?canceled?: ?People should just have a deeper awareness, right? And people who don?t are being called out. We should hold people accountable who do anything that?s sexist, misogynistic, or racist. We should call out the lack of diversity in companies. Or the lack of women on boards. Kanye should be held accountable for his behaviour. Period. There are clear things that [warrant], you know, ?You?re cancelled, bye!??

She does feel like people should go easier on canceling the youths: ?If you?re over 40, there?s a line. Where it gets challenging is when it swings too far in the other direction. I don?t want kids to be scared to make art, or to say things. They need to take risks and speak their minds, because what they want to say could actually be really powerful. You can?t just cancel someone because they?ve made a little mistake. My only thing with ?cancel culture? is that it scares the younger generation. They don?t know if what they?re about to say is going to be met negatively or positively, so they just choose to not say anything. I think we can make a little bit of room for the younger generation to find their way.?

On her famous parents: ?When I was starting out, if anybody asked me about them, I?d always try and change the subject. I really wanted to have my own career. Once I was a good decade in, though, I realised it just didn?t matter. Sometimes talking about my parents was actually a great distraction from talking about the movie I was meant to be promoting.?

On nepotism & knowing her sh-t: ?There was a lot more criticism. I really felt like I had to know my s***, and be as prepared as I could be. It felt like I had to live up to something.? But she admits that there seemed to be a lot less ?son-or-daughter-ofs? back then. It meant a more glaring spotlight was placed on her. ?It was me, maybe Gwyneth I just felt so lucky to get parts. I think a lot of directors and producers didn?t want to hire me because they didn?t want [my parents] to become what the movie was about.? She definitely didn?t feel as if her parents helped her get work eventually, either. ?I remember Cameron Crowe saying that it wasn?t as if Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell showed up to his door with, like, trench coats on, holding a gun to his head and making him put me in the movie. That?s not how any of this works.?

More on nepotism: ?The nepotism thing, I mean I don?t really care. I look at my kids and we?re a storytelling family. It?s definitely in our blood. People can call it whatever they want, but it?s not going to change it. I actually think there are other industries where it?s [more common]. Maybe modelling? I see it in business way more than I see it in Hollywood. Sometimes I?ve been in business meetings where I?m like, wait, whose child is this? Like, this person knows nothing! I don?t care where you come from, or what your relationship to the business is ? if you work hard and you kill it, it doesn?t matter.?

Re: nepotism? I mean, she looks SO MUCH like her mother. That was a huge part of Kate?s selling point in the early days of her career, the fact that she looks so much like Goldie and she?s perky and blonde. Please, Hollywood sent Kate every rom-com script they had. So yeah, she got a huge leg up in the industry I wish she would acknowledge that in a real way. Other than that, I like and agree with everything else she says here. Nepotism happens in every industry, and I?m sure she?s been in business meetings where she knows more about the business than whatever Business Nepo Baby. I also like what she says about accountability and how a lot of people do deserve to be canceled for being deplorable.

Leo DiCaprio 'looking for something more mature in the relationship dept'

Leo DiCaprio 'looking for something more mature in the relationship dept'
It?s so fascinating to watch Leonardo DiCaprio?s reaction to being publicly and vociferously called out for exclusively dating women under the age of 25. Leo was with Camila Morrone for over four years, and in those four years, the culture changed in a way Leo didn?t expect. He expected to just be able to date 21-year-olds forever, and everyone would still think he?s cool. He was shocked when everyone clowned on him when he dumped Morrone around her 25th birthday. He tried some desperate damage control, throwing himself at Gigi Hadid (an ancient spinster of 27) and he was shocked by the universal condemnation at being seen with a 19-year-old Israeli model. Now Leo?s ?friends? are whining to the Daily Mail about how Leo never wanted to be clowned on like this and he never expected people to make jokes about his under-25 rule.

Leonardo DiCaprio is not pleased with the ongoing jokes and speculation about his love life and is desperate to ditch his image of only dating women under the age of 25 while settling down in a more mature relationship.

A source close to the 48-year-old actor laid bare his frustrations over the scrutiny he faces every time he is photographed with a young woman, while revealing that the Titanic star wants to find a real relationship much like the long-term romance he had with 25-year-old model Camila Morrone.

Leo is very single right now and he is not keen on the hype suggesting that he is seeking out these very young women, the insider revealed to He is looking for something more mature in the relationship department. It is just ridiculous because he cannot go anywhere without being linked to the youngest beautiful woman there, the source adds. He wants to ditch this image once and for all and he is really bothered that this continues to follow him. Leo wants something like he had with Camila, something real.

[From The Daily Mail]

For what it?s worth, I do think Leo cared a lot about Camila. That was the most serious and long-term relationship he?d had since, when? Gisele, really. Leo and Camila even had dogs together. So the question is? if he had something real with Camila and he really cared about her and they were raising dogs together, why did he dump her on her 25th birthday? And why is he looking to recreate what they had by dating a 19-year-old, who he will inevitably dump on HER 25th birthday? Anyway, I love how unsettled Leo is about being criticized. That man has hundreds of millions of dollars, billionaire friends, a whole-ass P-ssy Posse at his beck and call, and he can?t stop the internet people from making fun of him and it?s driving him crazy.
