The Children of Nebo: What are they and why do we talk about them so much?

Hollywood is built on bloodlines – from Warner Bros. and Barrymores to Fonda and Coppolas.

So it’s not surprising that, when watching a movie or TV show, you’ll often see familiar nicknames in the credits, or wonder, “Where have I seen that face before?” »

But for some reason, more than ever, the idea of ​​famous children working in the same industry as their parents has become an obsession for us regular folk. Blame the internet.

Earlier this month, New York magazine captured our collective curiosity for what it called “A Complete But Definitive Guide To The New Hollywood Verse”.

Declaring 2022 the year of the “new baby” (short for nepotism) on its cover, the bi-weekly magazine released a seriously in-depth look at the world of celebrity babies.

The series of articles and infographics revealed that, most likely, your favorites in Hollywood are probably the product of cronyism.

These “upstarts” star in movies, play music, and sell everything from shampoo to candles to candy. And sometimes, as in the case of Brooklyn Beckham, they try it all at once – the son of David and Victoria Beckham was a photographer, bartender, model and chef.

(Let’s take this opportunity to revisit his book of pictures of elephants in Kenya, which has been the subject of major memes for years.)

Among the new European children is Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of singer Serge Gainsbourg and actress/singer Jane Birkin. Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, son of actors Stellan and May Skarsgard; and Italian model/actress Diva Cassel, daughter of actors Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci.

The Nebo children respond

Although the idea of ​​a newborn baby isn’t new, it is New York A series that lights up the internet with hot memes and events. The response was so prolific that some newborns felt the need to step in and fend for themselves.

Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, who calls herself “the OG baby,” said the latest letter was “just designed to try to belittle, denigrate, and hurt.”

She told Kate Hudson, daughter of actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell The Independent She believes that nepotism is more prevalent in other industries and that talent trumps parentage.

She said, “I don’t care where you’re from or your relationship with the company — if you work hard and kill it, it doesn’t matter.”

Musician and actress Lily Allen has a daughter trainspotting Actor Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen ironically call themselves “Nebo Children’s Advocate.” after twitter That people really care about favoritism in law firms, banks and politics “if we’re talking about real-world consequences and denying people opportunities.”

Bono’s granddaughter, Eve Hewson, pointed out that he’s even the CEO of the company New York The magazine is Nebo’s baby.

Lack of diversity in the arts

The rhetoric sometimes reached deep waters as people discussed the fact that more than your parents, the amount of money they earn or the socioeconomic class you were raised in often determines your success in any industry, but especially in the arts.

New British research shows that the percentage of artists (including musicians, actors, and writers) who are working class has halved since the 1970s.

Only 7.9% of young creatives come from working-class families.

The study you published British Sociological AssociationHe says that although it may seem difficult for the working class to access the arts, the figures reflect a shrinking working class in Britain on a societal level.

“Opportunities for entry into creative work are very uneven across the classroom, but it is no more or less unequal than it ever was. As in the rest of the economy, there was no ‘golden age’ of classless access to creative jobs.”

Initiatives to get more working-class people involved in the arts have gained traction on both sides of the Atlantic in recent years.

In a bold and widely criticized move, the UK government announced earlier this year that it would shift cultural funding for the next three years to support organizations in regional centers rather than around the capital.

And in November, voters in the US state of California — home of Hollywood — voted overwhelmingly to inject an additional $1 billion (€941,050,000) into public arts education across the state, especially in poor neighborhoods.
