  • It's ok but...

    By Everythingistakenblah
    I was enjoying it up until the point where the writer mentions is that if you want to become an actor for the fame, you need to see a therapist because something is wrong with you. When a writer tries to tell you that you have some disease or problem just because you want fame, you know he doesn't know what he's talking about. So many actors started out wanting fame and fortune. Nothing wrong with being hungry for power and fame, nothing wrong with wanting to be more than an average joe. Didn't bother reading much more, was turned off by the fact that the writer tries to tell you which reasons you should have for wanting to become an actor and which reasons make you greedy or insane. [yea he actually uses the word greedy].
