    No way. I can’t imagine having the whole world up in my business, not being able to leave the house without makeup on without my picture plastered all over TMZ, not being able to so much as go to the grocery store without getting swarmed. That life does not appeal to me in the least.

    Yes, but not really famous. Think Jenna Marbles, well known blogger, or well known author famous. Have my name be known, but people not concerned enough about my life to stalk me.

    I’m with IowaDDS13. It might be nice to be somewhat known, but not really famous. I wouldn’t want someone judging me for wearing pj pants and rarely leaving my house all weekend long. 

    It would be nice to have some of those famous people’s cash though. If I could have the wealth without the fame that would be super.

    only if I could be one of those mysterious hermit famous people who got to have all the money and glory experience that comes with fame, and then smartly made a hasty retreat with their winnings.

    I’m an extremely private person in a lot of ways and I could absolutely not stand fame for an extended period of time. However, celebrity is chosen, except by children, so I don’t feel we have to give adult celebrities the privacy that the rest of us have. It is their payment for getting all the money and status we don’t have, and they could choose otherwise, so they should lie in the bed they’ve made and stop whining. I’ll save my sympathy for those that actually got a raw deal in life.

    I’d like the money without the fame.

    When I was in NYC last month one of the stars from The Office was at Washington Square Park with her family. I actually had a hard time recognizing her in street clothes. But it was clear she put some effort into concealment – a baseball cap, hair done in braids, sunglasses. I didn’t approach her (but damn, I wanted a picture!) because I figured she wanted normalcy. So some celebrities can be hidden.

    But to have the fame of someone like Kate? No way. She’s also in such a respected position that she especially has to watch her behavior and appearance. I couldn’t stand not being able to go out to the store in a tshirt and jeans.

    Fresh and polished because she supposedly had her hair stylist and an assistant  there to help get her looking that way  before walking out the door!

    Some of the perks would be fun, but no thanks to the fame.

    @IowaDDS13:  that’s it exactly.  I would love to be known for a talent, but I would never want to be big enough to end up on the news for blowing my nose.

    Sure, if it came with the money.

    My current research project is going against about 30 years of dogma in the field. According to our co-investigator if this works and we prove the dogma wrong we’ll be world famous, but only within the select group of people in our field. I’d like to be that kind of famous. I wouldn’t want to be a celebrity though.

    I want to be rich, not famous. I don’t want to be in the spotlight.

    Nope, not in a million years! I’d be happy with a plump trust fund haha. I never understood the desire to ‘be remembered’. the people who know me and love me will remember me and that’s satisfying enough for me!
