Supermodel Kaia Gerber has been labeled “tone-deaf” after she fired back at her “Nepo Baby” image – while critics labeled her “one of the WORST actresses” on TV.
The actress has come under fire for comments she made in a telling interview with fashion magazine Elle, where she also claimed that her life experiences make her feel like she’s “lived a whole life” at just 21 years old.
The brunette bombshell insisted her famous family isn’t the reason for her early success, as she also claimed that if favoritism was “real what people claim to be, we’d see more of it.”
Gerber, who landed a string of high-profile acting gigs in recent years, said that despite her famous heritage, she earned her roles because “no artist sacrifices their vision for anyone’s child.”

The daughter of Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber downplayed her parents’ role in her career path, as she said, “My mom used to joke, ‘If I could call and book a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not for you”. ‘
The actress and model recently starred in Babylon with Brad Pitt, and will next appear in the teen movie Bottoms with Ruby Cruz for director Emma Seligman.
But fans were quick to point out that her early success could instead be tied to her megastar mother — one of whom labeled her “naive and delusionally wealthy.”
The American Horror Story star was slammed for not attributing her recent screen time to her famous family, with one viewer even labeling her as “honestly and truly one of the WORST actresses I’ve ever seen.”
“The fact that she even thinks this proves she is totally out of touch with reality,” said another.
One fan wondered, “Is she serious?” Everyone is entitled to how they feel, but she should really check her privilege before saying 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 label her “out of touch”
Speaking about her high-profile childhood and family life, the model claimed she feels like she’s “lived a whole life already” – a comment some took particular offense to.
‘What has been her contribution to the world? She is mistaken in thinking that what she has been doing for the past 3 years is a living,” one reader commented.
Another said, “Yeah, you’ve lived a lifetime of privilege where one “problem” is a stain on your favorite Versace dress. Talk to us if you only have $20 until payday and don’t have gas in your car.”
“She would never have survived my life. These spoiled, favoritism kids have no idea what real life is.’

Despite a modeling career of only a few years, Gerber also admitted that 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 hard time in the world, but I had really reached a point where I felt like I wasn’t falling in love with it anymore [modeling]and I didn’t know you could ask for a break,” the star said.
“I had to stop and realized how badly I needed one.
“When you’re told what to do every day, you don’t have time to sit still and think.

“But I had gone through so many changes and so many amazing things had happened to me over the years I was modeling.”
The star, who counts Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber among her celebrity friends list, opened up about her struggles through her childhood in the spotlight.
She recalled, “Even when I was very tired, wanted to go home, or felt lonely, I reminded myself how lucky I was.
“I have a catalog of images that captured my childhood. You grow and you change: your body, what you like, your taste. Being surrounded by so many creative people has shaped my taste. I am very much an observer and I remember a lot.
“My personal life and my mental health are not something I’m ever willing to sacrifice for my job again,” she continued.
“Right now I’m going to work from home, which is nice, and not travel all the time. I come home, and I’m with my dog. I have friends and I am cooking. I see my therapist and I see my family.”
