Joseph gordon-levitt



Actors didn`t use to be celebrities. A hundred years ago, they put the theatres next to the brothels. Actors were poor. Celebrities used to be kings and queens. Then the United States abolished monarchy, and now there`s this coming together of show business and celebrity. I don`t think it`s healthy. I don`t want to sound self-important, but all these celebrity shows and magazines - it comes from us, from Hollywood, from our country. We`re the ones creating it. And I think it works in close step with a lot of other bad things that are happening in the world. It promotes greed, it promotes being selfish and it promotes this ladder, where you`re a better person if you have more money. It`s not at all about the work itself. Don`t get me wrong. I love movies. But this myth of celebrity has nothing to do with movies.

That's quite an insightful paragraph you quoted. He speaks the truth. Although, I think he also missed a point--in a sense, things have not changed. Kings and Queens were celebrities because they had money, too. When you're apart of a royal family, you're born into it, though--you do nothing to earn that title of celebrity. But today, you actually kinda have to earn it.

There's a disgusting side to it either way though.
