Maya Hawke deals with nepotism by taking ‘free’ chances and doing well with them

Maya Hawke said that having famous parents brings her “huge benefits in life,” but she works hard and doesn’t take her opportunities lightly.

The actress and singer, who is the daughter of actors Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, said she “had no idea” who she would be if she weren’t the child of the two celebrities. However, he told Rolling Stone that he was aware of the rights granted to him.

Hawke told Rolling Stone, “I believe the only way to deal with nepotism, which gives you tremendous benefits in life, is to accept that you will have free opportunities, but they are limited.” “Therefore, you should keep working and perform well. If you perform poorly, your opportunities will be lost. That’s my credit.”

Hawke played Robin in the third season of the Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’, which she joined in 2019.

‘Stranger Things’ on Netflix stars Maya Hawke, Joe Keery and Joseph Quinn as Robin, Steve and Eddie, respectively.


Now, following the show’s fourth season finale in July, Hawk is preparing to release her upcoming album “Moss” on September 23.

Her words reflect the ones she made in a 2020 Nylon feature, in which she said she “works as hard as she can to be extraordinary” with the opportunities she receives, “if I stink enough.” I am,” then they will be taken away.

The actor told Rolling Stone that she regularly handles criticism related to nepotism by not engaging with “haters or admirers.”

Hawk said, “I like the advice I’ve received, which is that if you read positive reviews, they’re partially accurate, and if you read negative reviews, they’re partially accurate too.” Huh.” “You are neither God’s gift to humanity nor a piece of dirty garbage. You are neither, nor both.”
