Kanye West Gave Laura Dern Major Cred With Her Kids

Over the years, Kanye West has been at the head of some of the biggest controversies in Hollywood. If there is one thing that we can say for sure about West, it is that he is definitely not afraid to speak his mind.

However, no matter what you think about West’s personal beliefs and opinions, there is no denying that he is a very talented artist. He has millions of fans from all over the world and seems to be especially popular with the younger crowd.

Recently, award-winning actress, Laura Dern, got to learn first-hand just how cool the younger generation find Yeezy. And his popularity actually helped her to become more popular in her own household. Keep reading to find out how just how Kanye West gave Laura Dern’s major cred with her kids.

Not only is West a talented musical artist, but he also has a great eye for fashion. For years, West has had his own fashion line called Yeezy. He has also collaborated with other world-renowned clothing lines, like Adidas, Nike, and Louis Vuitton.

Not only does West create his own clothes, but he also dresses his wife, Kim Kardashian West. There have been numerous times where Kim has stated that her husband has had a say in what she wears.

Although, even before she had admitted it, the world was already suspecting that Kanye picks out her clothes because her sense of style has dramatically changed since she married the international rap icon.

Kanye West’s clothes helped Laura Dern earn some major cred with her kids

Because West is such a style-savvy person, many people are always paying close attention to what he is wearing. Recently, he was spotted wearing a T-shirt that had Laura Dern’s face on it.

Recently, Dern went on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about West’s new fashion choice. She had said that West was mainly paying tribute to the David Lynch movie that she had starred in, but she was still really flattered that his shirt featured her picture.

“And this [shirt] is thanks to the amazing designer, Raf Simons, who paid homage to David Lynch and his work. But what he didn’t know is he actually gave me a tiny bit of cred in my household of teenagers, and I’m really grateful,” Dern had told DeGeneres.

Dern was so happy with the tiny bit of admiration that she gained from her kids that she had gone on to tell DeGeneres that she would like it if the daytime talk show host would hand a shirt with Dern’s face on it to any rapper who happened to come on the show in the future.

Laura Dern has an exciting future ahead of her

During the interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen had commented on how strange that Dern’s children have one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood for a mother, and yet, it took a famous rapper wearing an image of her on his shirt before they realized how cool she was.

We can definitely understand DeGeneres’ confusion. During her 40-year career, Dern has won several awards, including a Primetime Emmy Award, Golden Globe Awards, and a Hollywood Film Award. And it doesn’t look like her career is going to slow down anytime soon.

While she is still one of the most entertaining stars on HBO’s hit show, Big Little Liesshe also has several other movies coming out in the near future. For instance, she is starring in the classic story entitled Little Women that is set to hit theaters this Christmas. She will also be reprising her in Stephen Spielberg’s iconic movie, Jurassic Park.
