Supermodel Kaia Gerber has been slammed as ‘tone deaf’ after she fired back at her ‘Nepo Baby’ image – as critics brand her as ‘one of the WORST actresses’ on TV.
The actress has come under fire for comments she made in a tell-all interview with fashion magazine Elle, where she also claimed that her life experiences make her feel like she has ‘lived a whole life already’ aged just 21.
The brunette bombshell insisted that her famous family is not the reason for her early success, as she also claimed that if nepotism ‘actually was what people make it out to be we’d see even more of it’.
Gerber, who has landed a string of high-profile acting gigs in recent years, said that despite her famous lineage she earned her roles herself because ‘no artist is going to sacrifice their vision for someone’s kid.’

The daughter of Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber downplayed her parents’ role in her career trajectory, as she said: ‘My mom always joked, “If I could call and book a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not you”.’
The actress and model recently starred alongside Brad Pitt in Babylon, and is next set to appear in teen-flick Bottoms with Ruby Cruz for director Emma Seligman.
But fans were quick to point out her early success may instead be linked to her megastar mom – with one labelling her ‘naive and delusionally affluent.’
The American Horror Story star was condemned for not attributing her recent screen-time to her famous family, as a viewer went as far as to label her ‘honestly and truly one of the WORST actresses I’ve ever seen’.
‘The fact that she even thinks this is proof that she’s completely out of touch with reality,’ said another.
One fan questioned: ‘Is she serious? Everyone is entitled to the way they feel but she really should check her privilege before she says things like that’.
‘Boy, she’s so out of real life it’s sad and painful to read.’

The model’s comments about her Nepo Baby image led many to slate her as ‘out of touch’
Speaking about her high-profile childhood and family life, the model claimed that she feels like she has ‘lived a whole life already’ – a comment some took particular offence to.
‘What has her contribution to the world been? She is mistaken if she thinks whatever she has done in the last 3 years is a life’, commented one reader.
Another said: ‘Yes, you’ve lived a whole life of privilege where a “problem” is a stain on your favorite Versace dress. Talk to us when you only have 20 dollars until payday and no gas in your car.’
‘She’d have never survived my life. These pampered, nepotism children have no idea what real life is.’

Despite a modelling career spanning just a few years, Gerber also admitted the Covid-19 lockdowns came at just the right time for her to take a much-needed break.
‘Honestly, it came at a time when I really needed it, and it was a really difficult time in the world, but I really had reached a point where I just felt like I was falling out of love with it [modeling], and I didn’t know that you could ask for a break,’ said the star.
‘I was forced to stop, and I realized how badly I needed one.
‘When you’re being told what to do every day, you don’t have time to sit and reflect.

‘But I had gone through so many changes and had so many massive things happen to me over the years that I was modeling.’
The star, who counts Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber among her list of celebrity friends, opened up about struggling through her childhood in the spotlight.
She recalled: ‘Even when I was really tired, or wanted to go home, or felt lonely, I would remind myself how lucky I was.
‘I have this catalog of images that has recorded my growing up. You’re growing, and you’re changing: your body, what you like, your taste. Being surrounded by so many creatives shaped my taste. I’m very much an observer, and I retain a lot.
‘My personal life and my mental health are not something I’m willing to sacrifice for my job ever again,’ she continued.
‘Right now, I’m getting to work at home, which is a beautiful thing, and not traveling all the time. I come home, and I’m with my dog. I have friends, and I’m cooking dinner. I see my therapist, and I see my family.’
