Jamie Lee Curtis Says 'Baby of Nebo' Conversation Designed to Try to Belittle and Discredit


Jamie Lee Curtis talks about her experiences in Hollywood as the child of movie stars, spurred on by the current conversation about ‘Kids of Nebo’ – A term for the children of prominent figures whose familial connections are believed to have helped them find fame and notoriety for themselves.

The actress, who is the daughter of “Psycho” stars Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis of “Some Like It Hot” fame, posted to Instagram on Friday and immediately identified herself as “OG Nepo Baby,” saying she’s been a working actress since she was about age. 19 years old.

“No day in my professional life goes by without being reminded that I am the daughter of movie stars,” she wrote, adding that “the current conversation about newborns is designed only to try to diminish, distort, and harm.”

Curtis reflected on her 44-year career and said she got into show business “with the benefits that fame associated with it has brought me,” adding that she “doesn’t pretend to be nothing.”

She wrote, “It is strange how we immediately make assumptions and malicious remarks that someone so related to another who is famous in his field for his art, will somehow have no talent at all.” “I have learned that this is simply not true.”

Over the course of her career, the “everything everywhere at once” star said she showed up to work with “thousands of thousands of people and every day I tried to bring integrity, professionalism, love, community, and art to my work.”

“I am not alone. There are many of us,” she added. “Dedicated to our profession. Proud of our lineage. Strong in our belief in our right to exist.”

Curtis isn’t the only famous offspring to have spoken of Nebo’s baby conversation.

O’Shea Jackson Jr., the son of Ice Cube who portrayed his father in “Straight Outta Compton,” tweeted that he was already in college to write screenplays at USC when his father brought up the possibility of him starring in the movie.

“I accepted the challenge. I auditioned for two years before getting the role,” he said books on Twitter. “Then it was up to me, he couldn’t hold my hand through my career.”

While Curtis and Jackson chose to respond to their “nepo baby” brochure — which gained momentum this week after a Vulture cover article on the subject showed several of the star’s famous babies wearing diapers in the maternity ward — by emphasizing their commitment to their profession, others have been a bit more sassy. .
