The 33-year-old star made the comments during her Tuesday, June 25, appearance on the Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi podcast by iHeartMedia.

“People kind of only see your wins because they only see when you’re on the poster of a movie. They don’t see all the rejection along the way,” she said.

“That’s why I’m always very open about things I’ve auditioned for and haven’t gotten the part for. I think it’s important to talk about – otherwise, people just think everything’s been so great and linear and easy, and no, it’s not at all,” the actress continued. “But, of course, it looks like that to the outside perspective or to the naked eye.”

The mother-of-one also mentioned that it’s even harder for nepo babies to get chances if people in the industry have had bad experiences with their famous relatives.

“I think there’s two sides of the coin. People like to say, you know, you have a leg up because you have family in the industry,” she said. “But then, the other side to that is you have to prove yourself more.

“Also, if people don’t have good experiences with other people in your family, then you’ll never get a chance,” she added.

Emma made her film debut in 2001, portraying the daughter of Johnny Depp‘s character in Blow. Her career took off in 2004 when, at the age of 13, she landed the starring role in the Nickelodeon series Unfabulous, which established her as a young talent to watch.

“People just think everything’s been so great and linear and easy, and no, it’s not at all,” said the 33-year-old actress

“If you’re a journalist, then write about something else. That’s just lame,” added the Madame Web actress, born to famous parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.
