Phillip Faraone / WireImage / Getty Images Maude admitted that she felt "a little sad" when she first learned that people think she's a "nepotism baby." Taylor Hill / Getty Images "I try not to let it get to me because I obviously understand that I'm in such a lucky position," she explained. Kevin Mazur / Getty Images for Armani Beauty "A lot of people [in a similar position] have proven themselves over the years, so I've got to keep going and make good work." Emma Mcintyre / WireImage / Getty Images Maude also noted that her career is still in the "early" stages, so "I don't have much to show yet, but hopefully one day I'll be really proud of the stuff I've done by myself."

Mike Marsland / Getty Images / WireImage "My dad always told me acting is tough because you never know what's going to come next," she said. "He always encouraged me to write." Stephane Cardinale / Corbis via Getty Images She added, "You can shoot a movie and really hope it will work, but you don't know how they're gonna edit it. To not have any control of that is scary sometimes, so I try to do other things." Udo Salters / Patrick McMullan via Getty Images Maude also said that Judd sometimes takes a look at what she's working on writing-wise — but only when she's ready for him to look at her work. Charley Gallay / Getty Images for Netflix "I'll wait until I'm almost done and then get notes from him," she explained. "I get annoyed because he'll come up with a better idea, but he's super helpful. So is my mom."
