Thompson also reacts to Kendall's comments to Love magazine, when she appeared to mock fellow models for doing "30 shows a season, or whatever the f--k those girls do."
Model Larsen Thompson just got back from attending her very first series of Fashion Weeks, and next year, she's hoping to graduate from spectator to participant.
She looks up to the new wave of top supermodels -- including Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid -- who have risen to fame in a way most of their fashion predecessors did not: They had the influence of their famous families.
But that doesn't always mean they've had it "easy." Kendall has often vocalized the hardships of being related to one of the most famous family in the world on several episodes of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." And while Larsen thinks "it comes easier for [Kendall, Gigi and Bella to make it] than for some models who don't have famous parents," she also believes that notoriety is something they never sought.
"They were put in a position they can't control," Larsen told TooFab during a recent interview. "I mean, you can't control that your mom is Yolanda Hadid and [your dad is] Mohamed Hadid. And you can't control that your mom's Kris Jenner. Honestly, I think they could've gone [any] route in this industry. They could've gone into acting or singing or dancing or modeling."
"[Gigi and Bella] are both so beautiful on the outside, and I've never met them before, but I think it just came naturally to them, to be honest, especially when you have parents like that. And Kris, who's a very smart woman," Larsen continued. "I'm sure they were like, 'Oh, let me get into modeling. I have the face, I'm tall.' It just kind of came [naturally], and all these designers reached out to them. I think it comes easier for them than for some models who don't have famous parents, but that's just the industry that we're in today."
Larsen also said she "wasn't offended" -- like many other models were -- by Kendall's controversial comments to Love magazine, when she said, "I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season, or whatever the f--k those girls do. More power to 'em, but I had a million jobs -- not only catwalks but everything else."
"To be honest, I didn't really understand what she was trying to say," Larsen told TooFab. "It didn't make sense to me. I was just like, we're all models, we're all in this industry, so I was kind of confused as to what she really wanted to put out there. We all work hard."
"To me, it didn't offend me, but I was kind of like, 'That didn't really make sense,'" she added. "I'm confused as to where she was going with that."
Larsen also opened up about her own rise to fame. At just 18 years old, she's already had fulfilling careers in dancing and print modeling. Her next ventures will invole acting and singing.
Enrolling in dance classes at the age of 4, Larsen has danced in shows for pop stars including Janet Jackson and Christina Aguilera. She's also starred in the following music videos: Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)," Borns' "American Money," Sia's "The Greatest," Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythm" and P!nk's "Beautiful Trauma," which Larsen said has been her most memorable music video experience thus far.
"P!nk wasn't in the video, but I played her," Larsen told TooFab. "It was back in the '50s. And what was so cool was that the song's about trauma, but we kind of made it a play where everything's happy and we're all joyful... And at the end, it's like, the play's over."
Larsen is a senior at Newbury Park High School. She's signed with Next Management and has modeled in issues of Women's Wear Daily and Coveteur. Larsen made her acting debut this year in the film, "Bloodline," starring Seann William Scott.
