Jamie Lee Curtis referred to herself as an “OG Nepo Baby” and blasted the current conversation surrounding celebrity children. However, due to a New York Magazine cover article that examined the recent increase in performers with celebrity parents, the term “Nepo baby,” short for nepotism baby, has recently become popular. Jamie Lee Curtis is the daughter of Psycho actress Janet Leigh and actor Tony Curtis (The Defiant Ones, Sweet Smell of Success).

According to Curtis’ Instagram post, she has been a professional actress since she was 19, making her an OG Nepo Baby. A day in her professional life does not go by reminding that she is the daughter of movie stars. However, she never understood, and never will, what qualities got her hired that day.

However, from Jamie’s first two lines as a contract player at Universal Studios to this most spectacular creative year, some 44 years later, there has never been a day when she hasn’t been reminded. The current discussion of nepo infants is only intended to try to minimize, disparage, and injure.

She doesn’t pretend there aren’t those who try to persuade her that she has no value on my own; for the record, she has survived 44 years with the benefits of affiliated and reflected fame afforded me. But, Curtis said, It’s interesting how she instantly assumes and sneers that someone connected to someone else who is well-known in their profession for their work must somehow be completely untalented.

That isn’t true, as she has learned through time. She has dressed up and turned up for various jobs involving millions of people. Every day she has made an effort to approach my work with honesty, professionalism, love, community, and art. Curtis said she is not alone; there are numerous of us. She is committed to our trade. Happy with our ancestry. We are adamant about having the right to exist.
