Growing up in Hollywood as the child of a famous parent has its share of perks. However, one of the challenges associated with carrying the name of an industry icon is that many people may assume an air of entitlement follows close behind.
For supermodel Christie Brinkley’s three children, Alexa Ray Joel, 33, Jack Brinkley-Cook, 24, and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, 21, the term "celebrity children" carries a negative connotation — and they have been trying to shake the moniker as they’ve grown older.
“I hate the term ‘celebrity children,’” Sailor told Hamptons magazine in a cover issue interview with the siblings published on Wednesday. “It can stunt your growth.”
The 21-year-old is the daughter of Brinkley and architect Peter Cook, whose 12-year marriage ended in divorce in 2008.
