What happened?

Of course, you still have to deal with insincere people. Two years ago, my husband was injured at work, and when we started the proceedings for the workers compensation benefits, it was amazing how many "friends" we suddenly had.

As soon as they found out we weren't going to be wealthy or even comfortable by any stretch of the imagination, they vanished again. I think I will just take a nice middle ground and enjoy not having cameras in my face whenever I want to check the mailbox. And you will be famous if you really want it! I think it's all about doing it for the right reasons with confidence and you'll have nothing to worry about!

I want to be famous no matter what but thank you for this article because now I know what I'm going to have to deal with. That's really a nice article. It hurts when a rumor about you as a celebrity isn't at all true yet many people persist on it and still spreading it. As much as I like money, giving up privacy doesn't seem worth the cost.

I remember when I was younger, famous was all I wanted to be Thank you and I totally agree! I mean you can make the best of any situation, the sad thing is, is that a lot of these young starts got a hold of all this money through their work before they even knew who they were. So they fell into bad places: I enjoyed reading this article! Well written and presented. There certainly are many pitfalls to being famous or a celebrity. I prefer my privacy also and I feel bad for the child stars like Lindsay Lohan and Macauly Caulkin who can't transition to adulthood.

It is sad and pathetic to watch. It must be hard for your sister and even you when you are with her, but I guess everything comes with a good and bad! Lol, late comment, but just found this article and loved it!

I agree with everything written here! My sister models and it's hard to even go out with her sometimes because you always feel like there's somebody watching you. And most of the time, there is a paparazzi lurking somewhere. I can't even imagine having to deal with that on a daily basis, though! I wanna be famous, it's my dream. But then after reading this article, I'm kinda scared to be famous.

I don't wanna be murderd. We are the creators of our own lives I'm sure if Lyndsay Lohan wanted to she could change the way she thought and lived her life. I feel bad for these famous people.

Of course fame is nice at the start but as it goes for a longer time it can damage your whole well-being. I'm particularly feeling bad about Lindsay Lohan. Not a fan of hers, but she's beautiful and talented and has a lot of going for her. She has paid the price of fame. I don't think for many years she'll ever recover her career or her former self. Sweety, follow your dreams whatever they are, as long as they are for the right reasons. The reason these stars get bad mouthed is because they let it happen, if you became famous and were respectful of yourself, you would probably still get bad mouthed but not as bad.

And knowing you have your self worth, it wouldn't matter to you anyway! Go for that passion girly! Growing up I wanted to be a famous singer , always shy tho to sing in front of people but it was a passionate dream I had but now I see all the celebrities and what they go thru to keep up their imagine and stardom till I realize I just wanna be who god made me to be , being famous is great starting off cause if your like me n wanted attention well your going to get a lot of that and if your like me and want to be the most one they talk about then you most certainly will depending on how famous you are..

But one thing I hate the most is people make celebrities as gods because if they make one little mistake they talk about it forever making them feel bad and you go the media and fans that will believe anything they see.. Famous people are human just like normal people so why can't they make mistakes OMG, i have been wanting to be a singer like justin bieber but i didn't realize this place would be a real pain in the neck, still I will go to be famous to do what i love, and i would just use most money on charity work, but thanks for telling me kinda what to be expecting like poperazzis, yikes, it seems to be bad at both ends of the stick aparently.

So meaningful reasons the individual's life is out in the open all the time and can be most unpleasant. I've always thought I wouldn't want to be famous - just the lack of private life in general. I think I would like to be in the situation of someone like They are rich, work with all the famous people This is true, but there are far more famous people that are providing bad examples for the younger generations and those are the people in the spot light.

I know this wasn't my focus of this article but this is just my attitude towards the rich and the famous, we are all stupid for obsessing over them when they have no idea who WE are. Jackie Chan can be the exception, lol. Maybe some people will use the advantage to help those less fortunate.

To have a bigger voice, in reality, people seem to give more money, listening to people in the limelight. I think you might want to think of other people that do this Yet as big as he is, he doesn't sit back on his butt, he actually gives back so much and started foundations himself. I also tend to think, anybody that trains in a martial arts their whole life and is an actor, seem to be well balanced and those are the people I look up to and the path I follow.

For all the reasons you mention, fame is not worth a penny for the invasion you must suffer. I lived that life for a short while when I realized I was putting my whole family in jeopardy. My daughter, who is a celebrity wardrobe stylist and dresses movie stars for red carpet award ceremonies and such will never allow her face to be seen. Even when a producer was short on actors for a commercial he was producing, he absolutely needed her to do double duty - dress the actors and be in the commercial.

She finally gave in, but she refused to allow her face to be seen. Somehow they worked it out to where you can only see the back of her. The rest of her team stepped up to be front and center. It's a big deal to be in a commercial. But my daughter refused to be out there like that. So, in the commercial, you only see the back of her. It's kind of funny. She said she has seen first hand what celebrities go through, so the only time people will get to see her face is behind the scenes.

I work monday through thursday, ten hours a day, so I can work on my dreams. To top it off, I am not doing the roles, where you are kissing and taking my clothes off. I been working every single day for over the past 7 years, and haven't had a real day off. Maybe some people are handed things, but to get where I am right now, and run fan club pages and many things, it is a lot of work, and you never stop.

Back to the fight scenes and such But I'm blessed, because I have a teacher, and have trained a little bit in martial arts.. I also don't worry about having a whole entourage of men or fake people to stroke my ego I only surround myself with those that are going to help lift me higher.

Just from working in and around the entertainment business, working in indie films and I only worked on a two of those so called big sets The Gameplan, the remake of The Women To let you guys know, it is hard work From behind the scenes, working in indie films, we have to have a full time job, just to make dreams come true. Not all actors and such are born with a silver spoon, we just have to keep going to make things happen.

My dream is to work with Jackie Chan, and I'm working on some films now and even getting together my own film, it is a short, but it is to thank Jackie and this is not easy. I started doing a radio show, writing and many things, while holding a full time job, and I support myself and. Yes in a heartbeat. Lets be real, theres always gonna be danger in life, and you can barely trust anyone anyway.

I had my fifteen minutes of fame on a small basis.. I loved it but can see where it can really be difficult. Sounds good to me cclitgirl! Glad to hear you want to help people and you can help people by writing your articles too, you can't go wrong!

Thanks for reading and commenting: I've long since thought that I didn't ever want to be famous, but I still want to make a difference.

I don't want people knowing my business, but I still want to leave my mark on the world. That being said, I think I'll leave my "mark" by helping people and writing articles.

Yes that is very true, I once read something on Kirsten Dunst saying that she can never trust anyone because she doesn't know who really wants to be her friend or who wants to use her. It's sad, but when your caught up in the world of fame, you can't escape this from happening to you!

Thanks for your comment and for passing by my hubs! I have always thought the worst thing about being famous is no longer knowing who your real friends are, and not being sure of anyone new coming into your life. Thanks also as I see you are following me. As I said in one of my articles, this world belongs to the extroverts and it seems that if you got the 'extrovert gene' you stand to be worshipped and placed high up on a pedestal among Gods!

Let's gang up on these gods and how em that we "small" people are just as entitled to the riches or at least a share! Thanks for the read and comment Richard. I say we "small" people gang up against the rich and famous and fight for our rights to make more money,maybe by lessening the money famous people make.

I mean, we are working harder than they do but they're getting x more pay. What the hell is that?! But you know what, society is to blame for this because society is obsessed with the rich and famous for some reason.

As for me, I don't obsess over anything or anyone that doesn't even know my first name. Why waste my time?! I don't understand why anyone would want to be famous, well I suppose there are people out there willing to put up with all that incredible baggage for They get paid far too much anyway.

A job they enjoy, treated like royalty, like gods, live like kings etc etc and they get paid astronomical wages! While the rest of us work a hell of a lot harder to earn wages that are tiny in comparison. But don't get me wrong, Anyway, I completely agree with this article. I wouldn't swap this life for a life of fame! It's good to be normal, or at least almost normal!

Of course I wouldn't mind having their money but you can always try to become rich without becoming famous! See 22 more comments.

Rumors People love to start rumors about celebrities. Traveling All the Time Celebrities tend to have to be away from friends and family for long periods of time. You Can't Mess Up Fame is fickle. What do you think? Would you want to be famous? Nope, not for me! Money is great, fame is great but you have to live accordingly to survive and do well. I'm PewDiePie, I can really relate on not making a mistake. When you're famous and you fall, you fall hard! I don't care what this says but I will always have a liking to the spottlight and I really don't care about lack of privisy or the rumours, I would do what I love to do and if people start rumours then who cares not me it's really just someone who wants to be mean and I wouldn't care and I love popperotzzi I think it would be cool it's like having a photo shoot wherever you go.

And I know I am going to do it someday. No privacy to date at all. I totally agree with your reasons! Being rich and famous isn't all that. Yep, I think so too!

I try to my best ability to do my own fight scenes and such. You do get exhausted and you have to keep going, cause nothing is being handed to you. I don't do drugs, not a smoker, and try to stay away from all negative things.

I just would like to step in and say something. I couldn't give a rats ass about those stories either! Voted awesome and interesting. Can I just be really rich without the fame?

They cant hide almost a single thing in their private life. And a great deal these people get insane, both for alcohol and drugs, divorced or something even worse. Such people find it difficult to throw true friends and maintain relationships long-distance.

People around them look only to benefit from their fame and fortune, or socialize with them just because they are every bit rich. Family is often not there, or children and parents just live a different life. Summed up, there are certainly both positive and negative aspects of money and fame, but most important is how people react to it and use it. In todays world, money brings great opportunities, and thats a fact, but we need to make love that like all other vices, it can destroy us and our family so its important to think well just about what next step with it will be.
