Exactly what is it about movie stars that we so admire?


It's not just good looks, because there are models that are prettier or more handsome. I understand singers and athletes because when we sing in the shower or play sports in the backyard we can relate to the huge talent and skill required to be anything more than average. But why actors and actresses? Isn't there main talent just pretending to be someone imaginary, or imitating real people who have actually done something? Their skill is observing nuances of other people and controlling their voice and facial expressions . . . why do we as a society place such reverence on them?
