Aniston Accused of Nepotism for Mocking Social Media Showoffs

Her parents were actors too and now Jennifer Aniston is drawing fire from today’s social media world for saying that people who became famous for essentially nothing are starting to take the place of those with actual talent.

In an interview with Variety she was talking about minor celebrities who gained gazillions of followers for sex videos or posting inanities on sites that show them off as influencers for products, or showing themselves off.

“It was right at the time when the internet really shaped a new culture about people becoming famous,” she said. “This thing of people becoming famous for basically doing nothing. I mean – Paris Hilton, Monica Lewinsky, all those,” she said.

“I always say I feel lucky that we got a little taste of the industry before it became what it is today, which is just different – more streaming services, more people,” Aniston said.

“You’re famous from TikTok. You’re famous from YouTube. You’re famous from Instagram,” she added. “It’s sort of almost like it’s diluting our actor’s job.”

Critics snapped back that she got acting jobs because her parents were actors.
