What do you think you would do if you were somewhere in Shreveport and witnessed the papparazzi stalking one of the stars? Would you intervene if you could or walk away? Personally I am appalled at the papparrazzi and their harrassment of the stars.

No, and I won't actively look or even care to notice them in public, either.

Celebrities are professionals just like anyone else, and I wouldn't dare bother one by trying to acknowledge them and adding additional stress to their daily lives.

I believe that's one of the smartest things I've seen you say and I actually agree with you.

My husband has had people who've worked in his office who've said "Oh we saw Kevin Costner in Superior Steakhouse and we went up to him to talk to him..blah blah blah". They were dumb enough to ask me what I thought. Well, I likened it to being out with my husband and trying to have a quiet dinner which can be difficult many times, most times due to his profession. I nicely explained in my Type A personality kind of way how rude I think it is to interrupt someone's dinner when they are quite obviously having dinner. These are people, ordinary people, just like any of us and deserve privacy unless they are perhaps out in the middle of a parking lot or some such place and opportunity presents itself in that manner. A dinner table is private space and should be respected as such.

The girl didn't like it but I think she got the point when I gave her some examples of how often and how rudely people interrupt our dinners and time out with our family. People need to respect the actors and actresses privacy while they are filming in our town and bringing business to our town. Let's make their stays here as pleasant as possible.

Depends on which star they were stalking. If it was Kevin Costner, I would hope bird droppings fall on their lens. But if it was Tom Cruise, I might walk up and shake his hand! ;) Nobody messes wit my girl Brooke.

stars
 
TB, I agree, these people get dressed and go to the bathroom just like us. Leave them alone. It could be perceived as idolatry, I have a real problem with that. Basically they pretend to be something or somebody they are not. That is their job. BUT when they start telling us how we need to live that is a problem.

Very good point!!:clap: :clap:

If the stars are sitting down dining and trying to have a quiet dinner that is one thing. If they are out and about and one just happens to run into them say at Target (that seems to be the hangout) I think you should be able to approach them politely. I think they do owe their admirers some gratitude for making them multimillionaires!!! I don't however want them to try and run the country.:D

oh please. They are not "professionals just like anyone else." They are all self-serving hypocrites who use the media to exploit their cause du jour. As for "adding additional stress to their daily lives" give me a break.

I hear TC has the entire floor of one of the casinos rented out so as his wife and little baby won't be disturbed. I can't wait for him to open his big mouth and one day comment on the "homeless" situation...who is he to believe people actually care what he thinks.

They are not staying in a casino. They have rented a house out on the lake. I agree that they are professionals like others and do have a right to privacy.

Yes they are renting a house but I also know they have used one of the casinos here as well. If not for the "fans" they would not be who they are. Don't get me wrong I'm not advocating "stalking" but the attention they get they ask for. Why does everyone try to "protect" them...they are what they are. Overpaid and barely literate. Case in point, just listen to some of the comments TC has made. He's a real understanding, compassionate one!

If I saw TC, I would not bother him, but it sure would be a thrill to see him in person.

No, they're not. They make their living by being famous, not through their craft. They're celebrities first, actors second.

Exactly my point, Joepole. They make millions from their celebrity status and then turn around and boohoo about their privacy...then try to intergect their liberal crazy views on the world while they America bash. If they would just stay mute anytime they are "off screen" things would be better.

Most people don't realize that fame comes at the cost of your private life. When you become a popular entertainer or a role model for society, everyone is going to watch you every moment they can.

Isaac-Saxxon 05-02-2007 03:14 PM

To much fame and money
 
The combination of the two has killed many a man or woman. People will tell them anything they want to hear so they never see the bullet coming until they end up on the front of a tabloid with all their private life sold for public consumption.
