8 problems only famous people face

Ryan Phillippe isn't new to the spotlight, but he's still taken aback by what it takes to be a Hollywood celebrity.

He's recently been linked to Katy Perry, which he strongly denies.

It's not something that many people will have much experience with, but being a celebrity comes with a slew of issues that the majority of us will never understand.

Here are six more celebrity pressures that we doubt will ever bother most of us in our lives.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is happily married to Liam Hemsworth (at long last! ), but she struggled to make her love life work because her celebrity meant that every partner became a celebrity as well.

"If you're trying to have a normal date and then you're getting flashed and [in the tabloids] it's like 'Mystery Man,'" she explained to Elle magazine in 2014.

She claims that the attention she received caused her to become a recluse.

"So it kind of turned me into a hermit, which my dad is - borderline socially unacceptable - and I never want to be."

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande can't stand the attention that comes with being famous, with invitations to parties and red carpet events.

In 2012, she tweeted about her 'fear' of walking the red carpet for the first time.

She was reportedly seen upset on the Grammy Awards red carpet in 2014 after seeing negative comments about her hair on Twitter.

She had previously revealed to fans on Twitter that years of bleaching and dying had severely damaged her hair.

"PLEASE give me a break with the hair (or just don't look at me lol," she wrote on Instagram.

"AFTER ALL, IT'S JUST HAIR. There are far more important things."

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has a complicated relationship with his fans, and he isn't afraid to tell them to back off when they step over the line and invade his privacy.

He announced on Instagram in 2016 that he would no longer pose for photos with fans because their requests made him feel like a "zoo animal."

George Clooney

You might think that life is pretty sweet for Hollywood A-listers like George Clooney, but despite his fame and fortune, all he really wants to do is take a stroll through the park.

I haven't walked through Central Park in 15 years. I'd like to meet George Clooney.

"What does the man in the big house on the hill have to complain about?" In 2014, he told Esquire magazine.

"However, the truth is that the big house on a hill is isolating." There isn't any other way to put it. This kind of celebrity has its drawbacks. " I haven't walked through Central Park in 15 years. I mean, I'd like to, you know?"

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez, like Miley Cyrus, struggled to make romance work (at least, she did before getting together with The Weeknd).

She even stated that she thought it was a "dumb" idea for guys to want to date her.

In 2016, she told Vogue Australia, "I think people would think it's kind of dumb [to date me]."

"Nobody would want to put themselves in that situation where it was so publically heightened, like, why would they?"

"I'd like to be a low-key actor, writer, or producer, but those types of guys are afraid of me!"

She did not receive her wish. Instead, she got one of the coolest men in music.


There are probably worse things in life than having a helicopter hover over your house looking for Katy Perry; some celebrities have had a difficult time with fame.

Lorde is only 20 years old, but she has already stated that she despises the 'lecherous' way some people in the music industry treat her.

"I understand that people of note are supposedly fair game for everyone to photograph and film, but that doesn't make it acceptable," she wrote on Twitter (which she has since deleted) after being harassed by photographers at an airport with her family.

"I'm starting to get used to my public image as a commodity, and the fact that I'm getting used to it scares me."

"There is a distinction to be made between the attention of fans, which I appreciate, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that I am subjected to in this industry."

Megan Fox

Megan Fox may have saved the world several times in the Transformers films, but that hasn't made dealing with international fame any easier.

She likened her experiences to bullying, but on a much larger scale.

"What people don't realize is that fame is your worst experience in high school, when you were bullied by those ten kids in high school, but on a global scale," she told Esquire in 2013.

"You are constantly bullied by millions of people."
