Maya Hawke candidly spoke up about being labelled a “nepo baby.” The Stranger Things alum revealed she is proud to be a nepo baby and even admits it landed her a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The actress is daughter of actor Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. In a new interview with The Times of London titled the profile “Maya Hawke: My life as a Hollywood nepo baby.” Moreover, the actress clarified her 2019 Hollywood Reporter interview which she shared she “got an audition for the project through the normal channels through my agents [and] I did an audition in my bedroom with my dad … we sent in the tape to Quentin and I got a callback.” Let’s check out the complete details of this story.

Maya Hawke clarified her old interview where she said she got her Once Upon a Time in Hollywood role via audition 

The 25-year-old who played the role of “Flower Child” aka Linda Kasabian who is the part of Manson Family, a cult led by Charles Manson in late-1960s–early-1970s California. 

“I’ve been wildly made fun of for this clip when I said, on the red carpet, that I auditioned,” she told the outlet. “I never meant to imply that I didn’t get the part for nepotistic reasons — I think I totally did.”

Earlier in the interview she noted if she believes that she “deserves” to be hailed as one of the rising stars of Hollywood.

“‘‘Deserves’ is a complicated word,” she noted. “There are so many people who deserve to have this kind of life who don’t, but I think I’m comfortable with not deserving it and doing it anyway. And I know that my not doing it wouldn’t help anyone. I saw two paths when I was first starting, and one of them was: change your name, get a nose job and go to open casting roles.”

“It’s OK to be made fun of when you’re in rarefied air,” said the actress-singer. “It’s a lucky place to be. My relationships with my parents are really honest and positive, and that supersedes anything anyone can say about it.”

For now, Hawke is enjoying her successful musical journey with her third studio album, ‘Chaos Angel.’
