‘It’s A Family Business…’ Tom Hanks On Nepotism In Hollywood

2 min read


All of an impulsive, the nepotism debate has been mishandled in Hollywood. The shade is not limited to the Indian film industry, precisely the Hindi one, colloquially named Bollywood. It all started when New York magazine broadcasted an article titled ‘The Year of the Nepo Baby,’ a half-serious, half-frivolous piece that detailed celebrities, including actors, singers, models, socialites, and so on, who retain parents or other family affinities in the endeavor and probably got their leave thanks to those bonds. Multiple Nepo Babies or their parents have transmitted their thinking about the entire thing. And now veteran actor Tom Hanks has dinged in with his yield.
While speaking to the UK tabloid The Sun, he said, “Look, this is a family business. This is what we’ve been doing forever. It’s what all of our kids grew up in. If we were a plumbing supply business or if we ran the florist shop down the street, the whole family would be putting in time at some point, even if it was just inventory at the end of the year.”
“The thing that doesn’t change no matter what happens, no matter what your last name is, is whether it works or not. That’s the issue anytime any of us go off and try to tell a fresh story or create something that has a beginning and a middle and an end. Doesn’t matter what our last names are. We have to do the work in order to make that a true and authentic experience for the audience,” he added.
