Being a celebrity can be a daunting task, even if your fans fall in love with your performances or personality. Whether your favorite celebrities play the bad guy in a box office hit or they’re lying on a bed hooked up to oxygen equipment, we get sucked in to the movies that they act in, because they add their own unique touch to the film. This begs the question of why we get attached to certain celebrities, but not to others. Do some actors have special traits that make them stand out from the rest, or are we drawn to fall in love with certain celebrities for other reasons? It is difficult to say why people are compelled to fall in love with certain actors and not others, but to better understand this question and its answer, perhaps we should take a closer look at some of the actors that ended up having long prosperous careers in film and television.
When people think of prosperous actors that they absolutely love, Morgan Freeman often comes to mind. From his role as Red in Stephen King’s acclaimed film, Shawshank Redemption to his talented acting in Along Came A Spider, Morgan Freeman has dazzled audiences far and wide with his matter of fact approach to acting genius. However, one thing that stands out more than other aspects of Freeman’s acting career is that he has a unique and memorable voice.

Paparazzi has quite a negative image of hounding stars and celebrities way too intrusively as to usually merit a restraining order from the court to stay away for a designated distance. ¬†They usually consist of photojournalists who are not officially affiliated with any mainstream media group who track the activities of famous personalities on their own accord and volition. ¬†They do this in the hope of catching just the right moment/s to be photographed and then sell them at a hefty price to newspapers, magazines, and other possible outlets for such pictures.
What is different from the paparazzi shots as compared to formal photo opportunities in showbiz events and other high-profile gatherings is that most often than not, the former tends to show stars in their most¬†embarrassing¬†moments rather than in their best. ¬†These pictures are usually stolen shots of a celebrity’s private life which are obviously not meant for public consumption. ¬†Given the insatiable desire of the public to know more about ¬†what goes on the lives of the rich and famous, media will continue to come out with shocking and revealing pictures that will sell.
Paparazzi is literally watching out for the blunders of celebrities to make a living. ¬†It isn’t very difficult to¬†understand¬†this since the most embarrassing photos usually command the highest price because of the expected interest that will be generated from it. ¬†It is simply supplying what is in demand.
When celebrities do their dirty thing on public like having sex on a public place or engaging in criminal acts,¬†they¬†are usually asking for such treatment. ¬†The rule is quite simple: Do not do anything in public that which you desire not to be publicly known. ¬†It is an altogether different thing when paparazzi starts invading private family¬†occasions, stalking children of celebrities causing fear and anxiety in them, and causing physical harm to the object of interest.
There are celebrities and there are icons.¬† Celebrities come and go but icons have etched their names forever in Hollywood history.¬† They will always be referred to every time a subject area which they have managed to conquer is talked about.¬† These people did not purposely set out and aimed for iconic status but rather found their place in it by being the best that they can be in their department.
Audrey Hepburn for one is considered a fashion icon.¬† With her familiar pared-down elegance, she has managed to reach the pedestal by being herself.¬† Of course, the little black dress she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany‚Äôs proved to be an iconic dress in itself.
Marilyn Monroe is an icon of female sexuality.¬† No other sex symbol continues to capture the interest of the audience even now when she has long gone.¬† She is always a basis of comparison for all the female celebrities who dare to walk in her shadow.
Elvis Presley is more of a music icon who happened to have several movies to his credit.¬† His gyrating hips will always be original.¬† The rest who followed remain pretenders to the throne of the King of Rock and Roll.
Grace Kelly is the¬†fairy-tale¬†icon of Hollywood.¬† An actress who turned into a real-life princess provides hope that this kind of story is not only found in story books.¬† She is also considered a fashion icon.
There are many others who have managed to build an iconic following such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Madonna, and Michael Jackson.¬† Many more are expected to follow.
