Eve Hewson is a reputable actor who has recently appeared in 2021’s Netflix miniseries Behind Her Eyes and this year’s Apple TV+ series Bad Sisters. She is also the daughter of U2 singer Bono.

New York Magazine’s December 19 cover, entitled “The Year of the Nepo Baby,” consists of a detailed examination of the world of Hollywood nepotism babies, or people with famous relatives who have had significant success.


Although her picture was not on the cover, the magazine would consider Hewson a nepo baby too.

On December 22, Hewson called out Pamela Wasserstein, the president of New York Magazine’s parent company, Vox, on Twitter. Wasserstein took over as CEO of New York Media in 2016. It was her first job at a publication.

Hewson mocked the piece, commenting on Instagram, “When are you gonna drop the article about the nepo babies that never did anything cool or artistic and just sat on the couch draining their mommy’s millions.”

She then went on to state that the magazine uses nepo babies to benefit themselves as well, citing covers they have made showcasing their faces for views.

Other actors that have been given the label have commented on the subject. Zoë Kravitz told GQ that she had “deep insecurity” about being the child of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. She also stated that “it’s completely normal for people to be in the family business.”

Likewise, photographer and former model Anaïs Gallagher, the daughter of Noel Gallagher and Meg Mathews, said it would be “tone deaf and irresponsible” if she refused to admit the advantage her upbringing had given her.
