For some, attaining popularity is the pinnacle of any career; it determines whether or not your career has been successful; for others, however, fame is nothing more than a waste of time and it robs you of a great deal of opportunities. While there are some famous people who agree with you and consider their rise to popularity to be one of their biggest mistakes ever, there are others who look at it positively and see it as a way to make ends meet and a breath of fresh air. Here are five famous people who say they're glad they didn't become famous sooner.
Shailene Woodley ranks first.
Her performance in the television series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" is mostly credited with launching her career into the public eye. On the other hand, she is not a fan of the notion of being a celebrity and, due to the stigmatization it carries and the bad connotation it carries, she views the word "famous" as having a negative connotation.
2. Daniel Craig
The actor has been very candid about how he feels about being in the public eye and how being in the spotlight has impacted him. He said "They are the source of all my problems in life. Occasionally, while I'm enjoying my meal, random strangers will pull out their smartphones and use the cameras to take pictures of me. I have the need to be violent yet I can't act on it. They consider it to be within their rights to take a picture of me, despite the fact that I find it extremely intrusive ".
3. Actor Bradley Pitt
When it comes to the work that he has decided to undertake, he is one actor that is known for being very honest. He is quite well-known in the music industry and has been in a great number of films, including Fight Club, Seven, Troy, and a great many others. He said, "It includes everything that we did not agree to, and there is an entirely different entity into which you have been drawn. You are not adequately supporting your film if you do not participate in shows where you discuss your personal life, therefore you will need to go out and try to sell what you have to offer. It has absolutely nothing to do with the reason behind why I do this ".
4. Lady Gaga
The gifted singer-songwriter has shared a lot of thoughts and feelings regarding her time in the public eye in recent interviews. She experienced a lot of regrets after her rise to fame, which occurred after the release of her album "The Fame" in 2007. She became quite famous in 2007. "When I step out into the world, I immediately become a part, in some sense, of everyone else. It is lawful to follow me, it is legal to stalk me at the beach, and I cannot contact the police or ask them to leave even if they do either of those things. I long for human interaction; I miss being able to walk down the street, introduce myself to a stranger, and strike up a meaningful conversation about anything and everything "She remarked.
5. Katy Perry
The singer has just spoken about her experience with stardom, and it may not be what you were expecting to hear about it. She added, "I am already worn out from being renowned, but I am not worn out from inventing new things. The only thing that will come of this is the vile by-product of fame. It's a delicate creature, yet in some ways it's also an animal from the wild ".
