Allegedly, a well-known actor took to Reddit to anonymously announce all that he dislikes about his fame.
"I am an actor. Well-known. A few of my movies are among the top-grossing in history. I started out as a child actor and fortunately have worked ever since.
1. I hate my fans. Appreciate them but hate them. I hate them because they hound and harass me. I am not an attention whore. I don't tip off the paps, party, etc. I usually enjoy being by myself. I can't even be open about being gay. What really irks me is how fans call me by this character's name and start touching me and asking for pictures like I am one of those guys dressed like a Transformer on Hollywood/Vine. Don't get me wrong, I'll always chat and take a picture with a fan if they are cool or for a young fan, but most people are assholes.
2. I hate the way they ask me for money and think I have money. I see these sites where fans will say I am worth like $20 million. BITCH PLEASE. I am worth more like $4 million. And I don't even live a lavish style. Far from it. I may get four movie offers ranging from $1 - 4 million. I probably take a quarter of that at the end. Most often I turn down the higher-paying movies because they will do the most damage to your career. Sometimes I won't get any offers. I have tons of expenses. I have to pay lawyers, accountants, family, etc. Don't even get me started on taxes. Also, if I ever become disabled or can't work anymore, then I am fucked.
3. They think that I can get them work. No I can't. That pisses me off more than anything.
4. My life is not that glam. Most famous people are not that interesting. They're uneducated. They're ignorant. They're paranoid. They're full of themselves."
( The actor also responded to many questions and comments by other posters.Collapse )
Who could it be, ONTD?
