Dear Poll: What Is the Worst Part About Being a Celebrity?

For the most part, celebrities have it pretty good, but with highs comes lows. While they get free swag and never have to wait in line, celebrities are constantly under the microscope, being scrutinized for their weight, their relationships, their personal life, all the while never knowing whom they can trust. So ladies, if you were to all of a sudden come into serious fame, what do you think would be the worst part about being a celebrity?

Lack of privacy. Seriously. I value being a private person, even in a town of 7,000 where everyone knows everyone's business. I would make a bad celeb :P

Not all "celebrities" are millionaires, and they still struggle within their careers, so having these problems on top of all that must be extra frustrating. I get so sick of hearing that celebrities don't look happy in a picture. WHY would you be happy that someone is following you with a camera? It's disgusting, the celebrity fetish. They are held to ridiculous expectations.

I wouldn't want to be the person that people hated on constantly just because. Most of them give you reasons to not like them, but when you hear fans say, I can't stand them, and I don't know why, that's messed up.

Whenever I'm feeling jealous over a celebrity I just tell myself, "Do you want paparazzi following you everywhere?" "Do you want people saying you look terrible in said pictures?" etc...

i went with always being followed because that leads to always having to look good and constant critism. but it all comes with the terroritory, its the price they pay. when they get into it they have to have some notion of what they're getting themselves into, although when you're actualy living it it must be a thousand times worse than you could ever imagine. i don't envy them...well except for their clothes;)

I can take criticism but I like to think that basically everyone is good (until proven otherwise which really hurts). I couldn't handle not being able to trust people.

criticism, if I was a celebrity, I would want people to love me, and think I'm perfect but the criticism would easily get me down, it must be hard to handle if you don't have any real friends.

All these problems suck and for me, not know who to trust would be the worst. Constantly questioning people's motives and feeling as if you are alone is exhausting and heartbreaking. But there are celebrities who manage to keep these problems in check, so there is a possibility to live a somewhat normal life.

I can´t decide between constant criticism or always being followed.. It´s hard going out with your friends and being followed by hundreds of paparazzi... Or being in the newspaper every day because you got drunk last night..

hmm how about "none" i know everybody has problems, but people who are rich and famous have fun problems. not problems like "i need to choose btwn paying for my child's daycare or paying my hospital bill"

I voted for "Constant Criticism." I can't imagine how difficult it would be to be called "fat" or pregnant because of an unflattering photo. Or having one drunken night and see rehab rumors in the next day's paper. It seems like no matter what, everyone is always trying to bring you down.

I voted 'always being followed' but I think I'd hate all of the choices you listed. I would not make a good celebrity.

I don't know if this falls under the criticism, but I think having half truths or flat out lies being broadcasted across the world. Like she's with so and so, he cheated on her, she's had work done, she's anorexic, or she's an alcoholic. I think I'd just get sick of all that really fast.

The press intrusion and the constant criticism would irritate me - The fact that the paparazzi see no problem in putting themselves and others in danger. And that a lot of celebs can't seem to do right at all.

I would really HATE it if I were photographed all the time. No wonder these celebrities don't look happy at a lot of pictures. How would you feel if you were being chased by the paparazzi at all times, even when you're not feeling well, when you don't want you children to be photographed, when you're just hanging out with your friends,... ? I would attack those paparazzi-leeches with an umbrella too.
