    Do you think being famous is a stressful position?

    there are happiness as well as stress. In fact everything has two sides

    I think the degree of stress depends on the sort of fame attained, but I'm betting it is.

    Fame certainly has a down side especially when the person wants to assume the role of just being an everday citizen.  Given levels of fame will totally deprive one of ever having that life again unless they seek seclusion from the masses.  As much as fame might be desired, this aspect of it does not weigh on the person desiring until it is too late. Many achieve fame as a by-product of the craft in which they are skilled.  They tend to live for their craft whether it be acting, performing on stage or in musical settings, or even in the field of writing...for example, Stephen King. These are not people who necessarily live to be in the spotlight so much as they live for executing their craft. Fame then becomes a necessary part of that.  Some of them manage it well and keep their feet on the ground and stay focused on their craft.  Others are overwhelmed by it and awestruck by the power that it allows them to wield creating many train wrecks.  Then there are those who achieve fame for a single performance or act, and then attempt to live in fame throughout their days. Those who seek only fame turn out to be the ones who dot the covers of many of the third rate gossip sheets knowing that their fame is only sustained by their publicity, either bad or good. Fame can truly be a disease within itself. WB

    I think so. In addition to giving up one's privacy and the ability to go out without being recognized, there are endless expectations and the fears of not being able to keep up..  Bad moments, which we all have, become fodder for gossip hounds.  I'll take my average like, thanks!

    Generally, I think so. Being a famous person, you have to live up to every person's expectations knowing that these people look up to you.

    I wish I was talking from a position of knowing for sure....but I aint dead could happen. I would say being poor is more stressful. I'm sure it is a pain int the arse to have people follow you everywhere asking for autographs every time you appear in public.

    Yes indeed. However, most of them don't have to worry with problems such as the economy so it beats that.

    I think it is very stressful to be famous because you can deal with many people and different comments from you too..
