I despise how the politically correct culture has crept into everything these days. It was a stupid, “who cares” question by the interviewer. This was presumably an interview to find out about the star of a big movie and the interviewer asked a question that will always trap someone. I’m quite certain that our family background and upbringing certainly paves the way to some extent for our success.
But perceived “privilege” or not, for the starring role in a Star Wars series, there were no doubt, many actresses considered, for the part, maybe hundreds and even thousands. She got the part and should be be proud of that. Now her PR rep needs to teach her how to deflect stupid questions about privilege and remind her not to ever talk politics in this hyper-sensitive world we live in, where everyone gets offended by something.
