The Naked Chef thinks kids born to celebrity parents don’t go far in life — and he fears that the same will happen to his four kids!
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, 35, sure has a potty mouth! In a recent interview with Hello magazine, Jamie went off about how children of celebrities are lazy and don’t amount to much. “Most of them are little sh***,” he stated matter-of-factly.
Jamie, who just welcomed his fourth child — son Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver — on Sept. 15, believes it’s not easy for children of celebrities to make something of themselves because if they do, they have to work double time to get ahead. “I think my children are very lucky — apart from having me as a dad. That probably won’t be a great thing,” Jamie said of his own family. “I think my kids are always going to be labelled as ‘Jamie’s child’ so they will need to learn to work harder than anyone else. They just can’t be anonymous — they’re always going to be judged.”
There’s only one person that Jamie feels defies the odds of celebrity-birth-privilege. “I think Stella McCartney’s an exception,” he said of the the accomplished fashion designer and daughter of Sir Paul McCartney. “That would be nice if they [Jamie’s children] could be independent and creative and happy like that, but we’ll see.”
At least Jamie knows the fundamental parenting rule — to help his kids find their place in the world. “That’s what you have to do as a parent — help them find their thing, their mojo,” he stated.
