Jennifer Aniston is sure getting a lot of heat for comments that she made about nepotism in Hollywood, despite the fact that she is the daughter of Days of Our Lives star John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis). Here’s what you need to know.
Days Of Our Lives News: Jennifer Aniston Blasts Hollywood For Nepotism, Despite Being John Aniston’s Daughter
In an interview with Sebastian Stan for Variety’s Actor on Actor, the former Friends star said that “the internet has shaped a new culture about people being famous,” while the two talked about Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee Jones’ sex tape.
“It was right at the time when the internet really shaped a new culture about people becoming famous,” she said. “This thing of people becoming famous for basically doing nothing. I mean – Paris Hilton, Monica Lewinsky, all those.”
“I always say I feel lucky that we got a little taste of the industry before it became what it is today, which is just different – more streaming services, more people,” Aniston said. “You’re famous from TikTok. You’re famous from YouTube. You’re famous from Instagram. It’s sort of almost like it’s diluting our actor’s job
That’s when the internet did its thing and reminded Jennifer where she came from herself. Some comments included, “Seems like a very privileged perspective. Now there are more opportunities than ever for talent to rise. It isn’t always up to a big producer that may not like the way you look. Still a long way to go in terms of diversity, but more opportunities for actors is a good thing,” along with, “Jennifer Aniston saying Paris Hilton is famous for nothing sounds like jealousy to me. Love Jennifer Aniston but she works nowhere near as many hours as Paris Hilton – that woman books appearances around the clock!”
