When you become an international celebrity, every aspect of your life suddenly comes under scrutiny.
Nothing is sacred, be it your outfit choice, the people you associate with, a photo you liked seven years ago on Instagram, the color of your nail polish, your Starbucks order or the shade of your eyeshadow.
It is this element of fame that ordinary people don’t often consider when they lust after a Hollywood lifestyle. Fooled by all the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown, they forget that fame isn’t all red carpets, dazzling lights and designer gowns.
In fact, if most people knew the truth about the life of their favorite screen star, they’d quickly learn that it isn’t anywhere near as enviable as Entertainment Tonight makes it look. I’d even go as far as to say that there are probably many A-listers who’d happily swap lives with their fans – because at the end of the day anonymity and freedom are much more valuable than Academy Awards and million dollar film contracts (okay, that last bit is a lie).
To prove my point, I bring you the latest drama to rock the movie industry. In the grand scheme of scandals within Hollywood, this is only very minor, but it’s still an issue that needs to be brought to your attention.
