The claws are out on the cat walk! Charlotte McKinney revealed in a new interview that Kendall Jenner was practically handed her modeling career because of her last name. Do YOU agree?
Charlotte McKinney, 22, feels Kendall Jenner, 18, has been given an unfair advantage in the modeling world due to her famous last name. In a new interview, Charlotte goes on to mention that other models have had to struggle and wait their turn for years, including herself.
Charlotte McKinney Disses Kendall Jenner & Ireland Baldwin
Charlotte wasn’t afraid to speak her mind to Fox411. The gorgeous model has worked hard to build her modeling career and had no famous name to fall back on, unlike Kendall and Ireland Baldwin. The celeb pair — in Charlotte’s eyes — used their last names to escalate their modeling career.
For Charlotte, it has been a tough road for her to travel without having a golden last name. The blonde beauty turned to her personal Instagram account in order to gain momentum in her career, while Kendall and Ireland just needed to show up to events and received jobs immediately, she claimed.
“For a while I was having trouble with agencies, and no one really wanted to sign me,” she stated. “I had some agents that weren’t really pushy, so I took Instagram and was like this is my portfolio, I’m going to work it.”
It’s a tough industry and it’s every man/woman for themselves, but it doesn’t hurt having celeb parents to jump start your career. Charlotte then went on to say, “A lot of girls have been working in this industry for years, and struggling and [Kendall and Ireland] walk in one day because of their last name, but whatever, if people like them, then let them do it.”
Charlotte McKinney Respects Kate Upton’s Career
Charlotte is often compared to Kate Upton, but she doesn’t mind.
“Personally, I don’t compare myself at all to her. I think we’re two totally different people, but I admire her business aspect of her career. I think she’s done an amazing job,” said the Instagram star.
Well, we think all the girls are gorgeous and deserve the chance to make it big in the modeling world!
