Acting Blog 3

Friday, May 16, 2014

Do I feel actors are still looked down upon for their personal lives or overexposure, and if so, do I think this is fair? (Remember, historically actors were considered lowlife - even in Shakespeare's day!).

I think sometimes we put our favorite celebs on a pedestal, then when they do something wrong we think "How could they do that?", "How could they let me down?" They are human and make mistakes like us 'commoners'. It isn't fair that we think so highly of them.

I may be guilty of looking down on some stars, like Justin Bieber. He was up there but I think he let it go to his head that he can do no wrong. ( I know I probably shouldn't mention names, but it was an example of what I mean).

I don't hold them as high as I used to when I was younger, in my youthful teenage years.

    Well, they are *real* people, after all, aren't they? Just because they have done something that earns them some fame doesn't make them superheroes or perfect. I think you've shown a lot of wisdom in this blog. Like you, I idolized my favorite stars when I was younger, until I learned better. You realize that, even if they are talented, beautiful, rich, whatever, they are still human and capable of making some pretty big mistakes.

    Great blog!

    Courti, what a great blog! These words show the wisdom you have accumulated through paying attention not only to what is going on around you, but your own thoughts and feelings, and I love the opinion you have cultivated (and have to agree - no longer a Belieber, lol emoticon ). Great job thoroughly examining the question! emoticon for sharing your point of view!
