Kendall isn’t having the best of luck at Cannes. HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned that the model is being ignored by the biggest and best film producers in attendance because of the Kardashian reputation. Here’s what we know.
Looks like there might be one aspect of Hollywood where the Kardashians and Jenners don’t reign supreme. Kendall Jenner, 19, is being passed over by the top film producers because of the “stigma” and “baggage” attached to her family, HollywoodLife.com has found out exclusively. Get the scoop on why producers are more likely to go with a Gigi Hadid, 20, type over Kendall!
Kendall Jenner Ignored By Cannes Film Producers: The Reason Why
“Many producers feel they could cast Gigi in a film, and they would have no stigma to it,” our source reveals. “But there would be a stigma if the billboards said, ‘Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kendall Jenner.’ That just doesn’t work. Gigi is the darling, and Kendall has a lot more proving to do because in many producers eyes they have a lot more to lose by casting Kendall in anything.”
Wow. Well, Hollywood has always been known for being cutthroat. Even though Gigi comes from a well-known family herself, film producers are much more in favor of her low-key family life rather than the Kardashian empire.
“Most of the film producers that are in Cannes are from the states, and the millionaires and billionaires everyone is schmoozing are telling these producers they like Gigi over Kendall for a host of reasons,” our insider continues. “They feel that Gigi is more exotic looking, doesn’t carry the baggage that Kendall does with her family and Gigi is more of a fresh face that they would love to give a chance to over Kendall.”
HollywoodLife.com has reached out for comment.
HollywoodLife.com previously reported that Gigi has been the belle of the ball since arriving at Cannes.
“They [film producers] see her as the next Brigitte Bardot, because of her natural elegance, and believe she has an incredibly bright future in film as a heroine, for example, or love interest,” our source explained.
Despite the success Kendall’s had in the modeling industry, her family’s reputation is “bringing her down.” But hey, at least she’s having fun over there! Don’t sweat it, Kendall!
