Prepare to roll your eyes in today's edition of what did Gwyneth Paltrow do wrong today?

There's no denying that if you're a child of a famous person, there are a lot of benefits to that. In fact, there are mostly only benefits to that. Money and opportunity just because of your last name? Sign me up!

However, there is also no denying that it is so SO annoying when these nepotistic children act like they didn't have it easier because of their famous parents.

Ummmm... hello?!

Recently, "Goop" founder Gwyneth Paltrow visited Hailey Bieber's (formerly Baldwin) YouTube show, "WHO'S IN MY BATHROOM?"

The pair discussed their mutual passions for smoothies while the actress recalled working with Hailey's dad, Stephen Baldwin, on the 1994 film Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle.

"He was great, he was so nice," " Gwyneth recalled, to which Hailey joked: "Imagine if you had some sort of horror story."

"Or, like, [what if I said] I [expletive] your dad in the bathroom," Gwyneth laughed. "I've had that happen to me, actually" the 25-year-old replied. "I don't even know if he knows that I know that, but I have had that happen."

After THAT, the pair got to talking about the concept of nepotism in Hollywood.

For those who may have forgotten, Gwyneth's mom is Blythe Danner — a very talented actress who undoubtedly helped the "Goop" founder get her foot in the door.

"As the child of someone, you get access other people don’t have, so the playing field is not level in that way," Gwyneth admitted.

“However, I really do feel that once your foot is in the door, which you unfairly got in, then you almost have to work twice as hard and be twice as good,” she continued.

"Because people are ready to pull you down and say 'You don’t belong there' or 'You are only there because of your dad or your mom.'"

As you can imagine, these entitled comments have not gone over well on social media.

"When you constantly have things handed to you it means you're holding more than other people," tweeted one critic.

"I'm over encumbered by my inherited wealth!" said another.

My favorite tweet? "Gwyneth Paltrow has to pull herself up by her goopstraps like everyone else."

Yikes, Gwyneth!
