Mere mortal just like the rest of us. I have tried to imagine the pressure that the celebs must face, granted they get paid VERY well to face the pressure, but not even being able to drive to the quickee mart for a coke without a media circus has got to take a toll sooner or later.
I think many of them 'live' for it. The rest just don't have the smarts to work around it. Me, I'd hire a few look-alikes and have them made up really good so it was very hard to tell the difference and send them out everyday. After the poparatzi got used to them, then I would start heading out. Either that or go out everyday myself until any pop shots were totally worthless to them. I like the look-alikes alot better.
ive no sympathy for celebs. they know what theyre signing up for when they do it.
granted no one put a contract in front of their face saying "if you sign this paper, you forfeit all privacy and all ability to take the facade off", but no one in america can possibly not know what it means to be a celebrity.
