The aptutados of Hollywood: who are the nepo babies and why is everyone talking about them?

The last cover of The New York Post brought to the fore a topic that had been making noise in the media and social networks for some time: the invasion of the nepo babies.

But what are nepo babies? In simple words, they are the children or relatives of celebrities, that is, the aptutados of Hollywood. A concept that combines the words babies (or children) and nepotism.

This 2022 several of the film productions and series have at least one nepo baby. And there is no shortage of singers or models who are the children of another famous person. In fact, this dates back to years, but with the evolution of technology and communications, they are no longer cool.

Is there meritocracy here?

A few weeks ago, lily rose depp —daughter of actor Johnny Depp and French singer, model and actress, Vanessa Paradis— left tole tole because she said, in a few words, that it bothered her to be classified as a nepo baby because that detracted from her work.

But it should be noted that regardless of whether they have talent or not, the issue they criticize is that with their influences they have a much easier path than any mortal. Although a question arises: if you had that opportunity, would you take advantage of it?

Below we tell you just some of the nepo babies that broke it this year.
