I have a lot to give.
I have a lot to learn.

..well I get where this comes from, I mean you grew up with a tv show that I had a role in. It’s a part of your childhood. We all want to get back to that time with our favorite tv shows and all that. And the mainly reasons I get any questions is because people know me from that show. It’s just that fame doesn’t necessary make people more interesting. I know plenty of people who are so much cooler than me and who can tell you tons of great stuff and yet people would show more interest in me. And I’m sure in others who even have less to say .These days it’s ridiculously easy to become a public person. Youtube and so on makes it possible. But this is one of the things that leads people who worked in that industry to do crazy things. People will constantly push your ego, make everything you say sound incredibly great and you’ll be left thinking you’re oh so famous and awesome and the chance to learn from your mistakes will be taken away without any permission. If no one keeps you down to earth you’ll get high, and eventually higher until you crush very low. So to everyone else, don’t fall that much for celebrities . At the end of the day we’re all the same. Some of us just happened to be promoted by the media which is the reason why things get hyped. If a fish swims just like everyone else, no one will notice. But if ten people decide to focus on one of the fishes then this one will become more popular. Mostly there isn’t such a special difference between you and someone who is an actor or a singer etc. We all got talents. Some decide to work with it, for example I’m not a good painter but I can act. So what if you can paint something that is beautiful but you fail at acting. that doesn’t make you any worse or better than me. I could talk a lot about the current society but I’m just gonna stop. All I want to say is, after you experience that hollywood thing everyone is dreaming of, you appreciate the normal life more than ever. Almost everyone I’ve met in that business wishes for more normal conditions. After all it’s only work for us. And it’s fun, a lot of fun but it gets very clear at one point how shallow and empty this world is. You become a product that can be consumed. You may be presented as a normal person but it’s all about the money that can be made out of you. And this is the end of the real fun. I appreciate the experience I’ve had back then, very much.. but I wouldn’t do it again.
Such a genuine answer that really helped me change my perspective on celebrities
