On Thursday’s episode of the daytime talk show, Meghan McCain talked about nepotism and how she herself has dealt with people criticizing her just because she’s daughter of famous parents.
McCain is the daughter of Cindy McCain and late John McCain.
The 36-year-old said, "Look, I can only speak for myself, but every single door I've ever walked in my entire life, people automatically assume that you're going to be a lazy, spoiled brat that won't contribute to anything because you have famous parents.”
The View co-host continued, "It's something I have dealt with my entire life. I no longer care. I think my work ethics speaks for itself, but I think people think when you have a famous family or a famous parent, everything is just given to you and things are really easy."
McCain added, "The majority of the people I know with famous parents have struggled with very serious demons because ... everything you do is going to be compared to what the famous person has done.”
She further added, "Nobody's going to feel sorry for a person with famous parents, but it really isn't always what people think. In fact, it almost never is. I feel bad for these kids trying to just make a movie and I'm sure they got help because of who their parents are, but that doesn't mean the movie's crap."
