It's a constant damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situation: If former child actors bring up their past, they're washed-up opportunists shilling for attention. If they never do, they're clearly in denial. If they say it was fantastic, they're full of sh*t. If they acknowledge that it wasn't always fantastic, they're bitter.


Read the article by Mara Wilson. Pretty good read and spot-on. I couldn't have said it any better myself.

Sounds like she's takes responsibility....

Former child star explains why young actors 'go crazy'



Quote
She wasn't "Olsen twin famous" but she did begin her movie career at age 5, so Mara Wilson can understand why it may seem to the rest of the world that young stars like Justin Bieber or Amanda Bynes have lost their minds.

Best known for her roles in 1990s films "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Matilda," Wilson turned to humor site ****.com to list the reasons why she believes child stars "go crazy." The result is a thoughtful seven-point explanation of how show business can be a trap and why "not many child stars make it out of Hollywood alive or sane."

Wilson, who is no longer acting, attended New York University and is pursuing a writing career. Her parents were against her becoming an actress, but supported her wishes to give the profession a try, protecting her emotionally and financially every step of the way. Most child actors don't have that, she writes.

"The next time a former child star is in the news, look at the age at which he or she started performing," Wilson writes. "Then imagine making a life-changing decision at that age. Chances are good he or she wasn't the one who made it."

Child actors are not allowed to act out as adolescents, so by the time they become young adults, they rebel, "often with major consequences," Wilson writes. They also have trouble dealing with rejection since they were adored for much of their childhood, but don't have what it takes to leave it all behind, she writes.

"It's easier for them to hold onto what they did in their past and make money that way," Wilson writes. "Besides, everyone they know is in the business, and after having people take their money, reject them for their looks, and turn them into a sex object, they're not going to be especially trusting. The sleazy bastards you know are better than the sleazy bastards you don't."

Wilson recalls walking a red carpet when she was seven years old and being asked about Hugh Grant's prostitution arrest.

"While I knew he'd been arrested, I didn't understand what for and didn't feel comfortable answering," she writes. "My father called the station the next day to suggest that they, you know, not talk to a child about soliciting sex. But he was rebuffed, and the complaint was ignored. Even then, as a kid, I knew that parental power was gone."

Wilson describes herself as a normal-looking woman and "reformed drama nerd" living in a two-bedroom apartment "in one of the less cool neighborhoods of New York." Her advice to, say, Lindsay Lohan? "Get the hell out of acting and into something soothing. Take up botany or something."

To the rest of the kids who want to act, she says, " Make sure it's really your choice, get out of it when it stops being fun, and get an education."

As he said “So Sad”… and not laugh too hard.

Slight tangent here from Bynes, but to the other subject of $75,000 and happiness.
Actually, that study got updated this year. The amount is now 250K – 500K that people are totally happy. The talk show I listen to walked through this some and made some good points. The key is money CAN provide happiness. More so it’s the security that brings the happiness. Forget the fringe folks who are wealthy and have problems with people wanting to borrow or lack of trust among associates or your business. The middle group that is well off, are very happy because they have money.

Makes sense. The ol saying Money does not buy happiness…. Not sure exactly the point it’s trying to make.

Paris Jackson Rushed to Hospital After Possible Suicide Attempt

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtXnznFoqks

This is beyond a "simple meltdown". This is very troubling. I thought that Paris was well adjusted and doing pretty good for the amount of attention she gets just for being MJ's daughter. Apparently, there is a lot of stuff going on for a 15 year old to do something so drastic.

No one, especially a 15 year old kid should be going through stuff that would bring this on. Apparently she has done this before....or tried to that is. This is a more in depth segment leading up to her attempt and possible reasons why she did so.

This newscaster is a jerk. Making it sound like Paris has real issues. Get real bud.
Time for reality to kick in. Life is hard. It has issues. Just because she's been a protected flower, does not catapult her into special status.
Maybe special, but that special where you better get your act together. Life just kicked in.

Since none of us know what is all involved, which with that family I’m sure is a cluster.

But…

I also think it’s this generations culture, especially the privileged that view their life quite differently than say 20 years ago.

My knee jerk, weekend psychologist mind is asking, what is it causing such a young mind to contemplate their own death as a solution? Their Twitter account is getting some hate. Someone said something bad about daddy? There’s a drop in your facebook followers.

Do you see my point? What does she find so stressful that she does not want to face?

I have zero empathy. It’s sad she’s like this, but I think most kids her age have a hell of lot more to deal with and none of them are life threatening.

Ochocinco Butt Slap in Court Room Angers Judge, Loses Plea Deal for Former NFL Star

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1Aia3ZQyws


Kind of a reverse Celeb Meltdown. Instead of the actual "celeb", it's the Judge reacting to his behavior. Personally, I can't stand him. He has always been a joke and him going to jail is no sweat off my back. But I am in agreement that he should have gotten jail time for headbutting his wife and not for smackin' his lawyer's ass.

I thought it was spot on. The ****** was not taking this seriously.

Judge made that clear.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the Judge sent him away regardless. I just wished she had done so on the more serious charge of spousal abuse to send a clear and definitive message to anyone else that would cross that line.

I get that.

I'm just glad a judge is stepping up. We see way to often judges giving a pass to 'celebrities'.

I hope that the next Photo shoot she does at Maxim....or Playboy, involves that ugly wig. That should sell quite a few issues. Not.

Actually, they should just do the photo shoot of the wig and have her stay home. I'd buy it.   :P
