But Gwyneth also admitted that children with famous parents can ‘unfairly’ enter the industry and get opportunities that others don’t.
“As someone’s kid, you get access to what others don’t, so the playing field isn’t level that way,” she explained.
However, I really feel that once you get your foot in the door, which you unfairly got in, then you have to work twice as hard and be twice as good because people are willing to drag you down and say ‘you don’t don’t belong there’ and You are only there because of your father or mother, “or whatever the case.”
