“It’s a lucky place.”

Maya Hawke is proud to be the child of famous parents.

The ‘Stranger Things’ actress, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, admitted she feels “lucky” to be able to follow in her parents’ footsteps on the big screen.

“There are so many people who deserve to have this kind of life who don’t, but I think I’m comfortable with not deserving it and doing it anyway,” said Hawke, 25 years, at the Times of London.

The term “nepo baby” refers to famous children who got a head start in the entertainment industry thanks to their famous parents.

Hawke also said that not taking advantage of his situation “wouldn’t help anyone.”

“I saw two paths when I started, and one of them was: change your name, get a nose job, and move into casting roles,” she explained.

“It’s normal to make fun of them when you’re in rarefied air. It’s a lucky place. My relationship with my parents is truly honest and positive, and that goes beyond what anyone can say.

Elsewhere, the actress recalled comments she made to The Hollywood Reporter in 2019 about her first major on-screen role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

At the time, the “Maestro” actress played coy about how she managed to get her foot in the door to get the role.

“I got an audition for the project through normal channels, through my agents,” she said at the time. “I auditioned in my bedroom with my dad. We sent the tape to Quentin and I got a call back.

After his comments raised eyebrows on social media, Hawke has now set the record straight and admitted nepotism definitely played a role.

“I was made fun of a lot for this clip when I said on the red carpet that I had auditioned,” she told the outlet. “I never wanted to imply that I didn’t get the role for nepotistic reasons – I think I totally got it.”

Last year, Hawke starred in the drama “Wildcat,” directed by her famous father.

Despite her best efforts to call her father “Ethan” on set, Hawke admitted that she reverted to “Daddy” very quickly.

“We were constantly asked if we were nervous about working together, but we weren’t, because I spent my whole life making art with this guy,” she said .
