Jane Carrey, daughter of comedic actor Jim Carrey, has created quite the stir since showing up on Sunday’s American Idol 2012 auditions in San Diego.
Now, there are people claiming the comedian’s daughter received special treatment. Radar Online is reporting that Jane did not have to go through the same red tape that a typical American Idol hopeful does.
“She did not have to sleep outside and wait for hours like everyone else,” a source told Radar Online. “She basically had an appointment and showed up. Her audition was prearranged with the producers. She did not wait and line up for hours or days outside. She had a time, she showed up and went in.”
During her audition, Jane said her last name has been both a good thing and a bad thing.
“The last name definitely helps and hurts,” she said. “I feel like there’s kind of this pressure to maybe be better, because if I make it somewhere, I run the risk of people saying ‘Oh you only got there because of this.’”
Of course there’s no confirmation or denial about any of this, so take this information from Radar Online as you like. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time someone didn’t have to wait in line for days or hours to audition.
Do you think Jane received special treatment? Do you care?
