Maude Apatow wants you to know she’s more than just a celebrity kid.
The Euphoria star, who is the daughter of director Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann, said she’s well-aware that the internet has dubbed her a “nepotism baby.” In an interview with Net-a-Porter published on Sept. 5, the 24-year-old candidly opened up about the label she’s been given.
“At first, I was sad,” Maude admitted. “I try not to let it get to me because I obviously understand that I’m in such a lucky position. A lot of people [in a similar position] have proven themselves over the years, so I’ve got to keep going and make good work.”
She continued, “It’s so early in my career, I don’t have much to show yet, but hopefully one day I’ll be really proud of the stuff I’ve done by myself.”
Maude, who is set to star and write in a dark comedy with Netflix, also shared the advice she’s received from her father that has helped her navigate Hollywood.
