Writing Can Be Murder

Another reason to never become a celebrity

Celebrities have my sympathy when they fly. (Not the ones that have their own private jets, they get no sympathy, but I do feel for those that travel commercial flights.) 

Some actor from The Sopranos was on a flight I took the other day.  (I’ve never sat thru an episode of the show, so I didn’t recognize him at all, but it seemed like every other person on the flight knew who he was.) People gaped at him like he was an animal in a zoo. He didn’t get a moment’s peace with people “surreptitiously” taking his picture with their camera phones or walking up and asking him questions about the finale.

He was gracious to all, but doesn’t that kind of attention get old pretty quickly?

And for those Soprano fans that are curious he was Federico Castelluccio — Furio Giunta

  1. I never understood the ‘starstruck’ mentality. I’ve never had the desire to follow a celebrity around trying to take their picture. I’ve gone up on occasion, said hello and shook hands, but that’s about it. In fact, at a restaurant, my husband and I found ourselves sitting a table away from Don S. Davis [General Hammond from Stargate]. We didn’t say anything, because we didn’t want to interrupt his lunch. Thinking back, maybe he would have been thrilled to have someone speak to him, since he was eating alone, but I value my privacy too much to believe he wasn’t enjoying a little bit of quiet time.
