Being the child of someone with a lot of pull in the entertainment industry can have its perks. Not only can it help you get your foot in the door if for some reason you decide that you want to act, sing, or do anything that takes regular people hard work, years and tears to accomplish (see the Smith family, Will put everybody on), but you’re pretty much assured not to go hungry. But it can also have its setbacks, including being overprotected, judged by your parents actions and accomplishments and more.
