Dear Poll: Do You Feel Sorry for Celebs When They Look Depressed?

I feel like I keep seeing pictures of celebrities looking blue. While we are all entitled to a bad day here and there, I find myself asking what they could possibly be sad about - but is that a misconception? While most celebrities don't have money woes, flawed bodies, trouble getting the guy, making friends or getting a front table at a hot new restaurant, do you think it's fair to assume these men and women have it made? What I want to know is, do you feel sorry for celebrities when they mosey the streets with a frown?

I tend to assume the photographer just took a bad picture. People don't usually look particularly delighted when they're trying to get all the errands done, or are trying to calculate whether or not the money in the pay parking has run out.

No I don't feel sorry for them. If they had to live the life that a lot of other people HAVE to leave --struggling-- everyday, then they would be more than just looking depressed. They would look it, feel it, and live it. If they don't want the lifestyle then yes they can move. No one is holding them hostage in Hollywood.

I can't tell from a single picture how someone is feeling, so I would say no. They might not be depressed at all, simply preoccupied thinking about something, or any number of different things.

I wouldn't say I feel sorry for them when they don't look happy (I've got my own things to worry about), but they're just human and have bad days too. Celebrities get sick and injured too, and their babies cry in the middle of the night like anyone else's. Attractive though they might be, I think they're probably more worried than most about their appearance because their livelihood depends on it. 5 lbs might be the difference between getting a job or not. And how do you know who's really a friend and who's just riding the gravy train?

If someone is truly clinically depressed, I feel sorry for them from one human being to another, but most of these folks are, as others have said, merely tired of having their picture taken. If it's not true depression, I just can't feel sorry for them, there's something about making $10 million a picture that just sucks the compassion right out of me.

Its true they ARE people, too. Just because they made a name for themselves doesn't mean that they're not entitled to sympathy from other people when they get under the dark cloud. I do wonder, too, what it is they're sad about at times...

Yeah, life can be hard, but honestly, how hard could it be if you have everything you ever wanted and can get more?

they're not that much above you or i. they're not gods or goddesses, but we do seem to act like they are sometimes. they have a lot more money and more people know who they are, but that doesn't mean they don't have troubles of their own. they have love problems, they have secrets, insecurities, unhappinesses, so it's wrong to say that just because someone is a celebrity, they must be completely happy and live a perfect life. no one's perfect! and who knows if they really are upset? i know that when i'm not smiling, ie just staring, i look really angry...but i'm not.

they are normal people, and anyone can get depressed and feel sad. but at the same time they choose bring certain woes into their lives...i mean many celebs sell their privacy for fame and for that, no i dont pity them...not at all. but being upset over normal things IS normal. and i wish people would stop treating these people as if they dont feel heat or cold or dont hurt when a bone breaks...THEYRE HUMAN.

I think they're probably just bad pictures. I do feel sorry for someone who is caught crying on camera, because I think the pictures exploit their emotions.

I think celebs have far more problems than the average person. I actually really feel sorry for a lot of celebrities.

I agree with annebreal, I generally don't assume they look depressed in the first place.

Right, annebreal! What are they supposed to do: walk around with a smile all the time? You try grinning 24/7... it's damn near impossible and you'd look like a nut!
annebreal annebreal 10 years
I think a lot of the time they probably aren't really down, the camera just caught an off moment (I mean, with as many pics that each photog snaps, they're going to catch an awkward or frowny looking pic and print it if it supports the story the mag wants to run)or they're annoyed at having their picture taken incessantly. Can't be on all the time. But yeah, I feel sorry for them unless they're eating outside at The Ivy or something. I hate it when tabs run a cover picture of an "angry" celebrity and you can so tell they were just sneezing or something! That would get old fast.

I would feel very sympathetic towards anyone who is depressed...
