Comment on the following statement:
|A popular actor’s life is always fun.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that movie stars’ lives are never-ending fun whereas others say that they have even more troubles than common people.
I think that popular actors have less fun than others. First, all details of their lives are on the pages of popular magazines. As far as I know acting is hard work that takes a lot of energy and time. Also, many actors try to live up to the expectations of others, their fans, mass-media etc. They’re not free to be themselves and it’s no fun.
At the same time some people say that popular actors have a lot of money and can afford to have any fun they want. They’re famous and that in itself is a source of pleasure.
In my opinion to have and to be able to use are two different things. Whatever the actors do will soon be known by everybody. And if they make a mistake everyone will know it, discuss it and they will have to face strong criticism. I think that it’s a big burden to live under such close attention of millions. The money they make can make up for it but only to some extent.
In conclusion I’d like to say that if we look at this matter without proper investigation, we will see that it looks their lives are a lot of fun. But when we start digging deeper we will see that the price of that fun is rather high.
