Gigi has been stealing the spotlight at Cannes, as film producers are begging to meet with the gorgeous blonde and Kendall’s BFF. Meanwhile, poor Kendall hasn’t had nearly as much love! Is she fuming with jealousy over her bestie’s success? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Kendall Jenner, 19, and Gigi Hadid, 20, are the dynamic duo — but is Gigi’s success at Cannes Film Festival tearing them apart? As the model BFFs have been putting their face out in front of the big shots, Gigi has garnered way more attention than Kendall, as producers are begging to meet with her — and not Kendall. So how exactly does Kendall feel about her bestie’s Cannes success? Here’s what HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Kendall Jenner Jealous of Gigi Hadid’s Meetings With Film Producers? The Truth
“Kendall wants to be a model. Acting would be fun, and if the right thing came along she would jump at it. She is making some waves in her modeling career and she wants to tackle those challenges before she pursues intense acting roles,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Phew! We’re glad there’s no bad blood between Gigi and Kendall. While film producers are calling Gigi the next Brigitte Bardot, Kendall hasn’t had many fawning over her, but she just wants to focus on modeling! The KUWTK star has worked hard to become a model and her career is hotter than ever — it’s good she’s focusing on that right now. If Kenny does decide to branch out into acting one day, she knows she can do it!
“The fact that people are thinking she wouldn’t be a good fit has her upset, but it just makes it more rewarding when she has the chance to prove them wrong,” our insider continues. ‘Atta girl!
Sadly, the reason Kendall is being shut down by film producers at Cannes is the same dilemma she was in when she first started modeling — which has everything to do with her last name.
“She’s been looked down upon because she’s a Kardashian,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Movie big-wigs just don’t see what the fuss is about, and it’s her family association that’s bringing her down. 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.”
Well, if it’s any consolation, Kendall’s modeling career is on fire and should she want to go into acting, we have every confidence she can make it! In the meantime, we’re glad she’s not bitter about Gigi’s amazing success. If anything, Kendall has motivation.
