Emma Roberts, known for her roles in “American Horror Story” and “We’re the Millers,” recently addressed the issue of being labeled a “nepo baby” on the ‘Table for Two’ podcast. As the niece of Julia Roberts, she has faced criticism for her family connections aiding her career. Roberts pointed out that women, especially young girls, are more harshly criticized for nepotism than men, and humorously questioned why actors like George Clooney, whose aunt was iconic singer Rosemary Clooney, don’t face the same scrutiny. She highlighted that the term “nepo baby” often overlooks the efforts and talents of those it labels, especially in the case of women in the industry.
