That's not my name

I was just reading an article about Dree Hemingway, model and granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway. The reader is given a "word of advice" though, to not ask Dree about her family tree. I always find this amusing, and disrespectful, when these young celebrities scoff at people referencing their famed pedigree- especially when 99.9% of them have gotten where they are because of where they came from. This always elicits a long and pained eye roll from me. I understand the desire to be called by their own name and not simply "daughter of" or "nephew of". But they're always saying, don't even ask me about my famous daddy, I totally became a supermodel on my own. Right...
