Meet Top Celebrities And What They Hate About Being Famous

As an celebrity, you have to be adept at taking on various personalities, motivations, and even looks for different parts. But certain stars will forever be recognized for playing a particularly iconic role—and some of them don't love that. Whether they hated their character or just hated the fame that came with it, take a look at the stars, ahead, who see their roles as a blessing, but sometimes also as a curse.

Keira Knightley

It was "horrific" to become renowned as a teenager filming Pirates of the Caribbean, Keira Knightley said Variety. "Because I'm not an extrovert, that kind of attention and fame was incredibly difficult for me." Since the world can be brutal to young actors, the actor has become protective of the females she works with today. I'll never forget that experience. It changed everything for the rest of my life," she said. "Is there anything I would have done differently if I could go back and do it all over again? There isn't a chance for me to do that because I'm really fortunate right now, and my work is at a good spot where I like it and my renown level is lot less intense. It's fantastic that I'm able to handle it now. In retrospect, it wasn't fantastic, and it took a long time to figure out what was wrong with me."

Will Smith

Will Smith started a "Ask Uncle Will" segment on his vlogs in 2018 to answer fan questions. The first person to "Ask Uncle Will" was the daughter of his buddy Scotty. If you had to choose, would you rather have the life you have today or live a regular life?" Let me put it this way: "I've always wanted a life like this, and I now have it... Having fame is great, but there's also a downside. I'm sued at least 15 times a year, if not more. Because you get sued so often when you're famous, I keep a team of attorneys on retainer.

Selena Gomez

Even if you don't believe it, celebrities are a huge component of social media. It puts you in touch with your audience on a personal level, and it may also be a fantastic source of revenue. Selena Gomez still maintains her social media accounts, but she no longer enjoys the excitement of social media. Selena remarked in 2019 that "for my generation, social media has been bad... For me, I'm deliberate about it... Set time limitations on how often you may utilize it."

Alicia Keys

Being a superstar often entails donning a thick coat of powder to camouflage one's features. Alicia Keys became hooked to the status quo before deciding to move in the opposite direction one day.

No matter what happened, that's how it all began for the #nomakeupmovement, since either the universe or I finally listened to what the universe was saying. No make-up, even when presenting the Grammy Awards, for Alicia Keys!
