Because, based on that logic, all the social media savvy stars, or ones who openly talk about their personal lives should be considered manipulative & scheming liars, yet we still stan them hard. Which makes us seem hypocritical, preaching morals as we still support them. 🤷‍♂️

Fair enough. Lol. I see your point about selling pics. I guess I just don’t see how leveraging your personal life into your career (because of audience demand) is mutually exclusive to not being able to have a genuine relation or love honestly.

It might be a great film. But the hype is doing nothing for me. So we’ll see I guess. Let me know if you watch it.

Which is why we, as film enthusaists, believe in multiple takes. More options is better in the edit room. ... What are we talking about? 🤔

Thanks for the follow. Much appreciated. I’ll try not to squander the love by rambling about too much these days. 😬🤷‍♂️

While looks amazing, anyone else getting vibes from it? No sound. No sight. Etc. Just me?

Sure. Of course it’s fair game to call out their behaviour in relation or in context to their profession, (the only reason we know they exist) but that article was beyond that. There is a line as I mentioned.

Yet we want to condemn or look down on celebs who use that to their benefit? That’s kind of my point. We think it’s okay to treat celebs like our own personal entertainment, and then justify it because... what? Their morals are less than because WE made them celebs?

Just an FYI: These ‘stakes’ have been created by us, the audience. They (celebs) take advantage of it. None of these things would exist if we didn’t consume them. We follow, subscribe, buy magazines, click links, buy tickets, give views, driving up their net worth. ...

Making / being judgemental is 1 thing. Talk shit about people behind their back? Their prerogative entirely. But write an article about that judgement, backed w observations, background, context, & it becomes an entirely different thing. As media she would know the difference.

If it’s her ‘job’ then she obviously took it seriously. We can’t dismiss it as just ‘an article’ if that is her bread and butter. And positing harebrained theories about the personal lives of celebs, is being a gossip columnist. Not a media professional, as others can attest to.

Imagine our work colleagues & peers judging us based on decisions in our personal lives & relationships. Seems outrageous in a blue/white collar situation. But completely fair for celebs? & I get that to an extent they’ve chosen this, so it’s all fair game. But there’s a line.

That analogy is fair. But when it involves the personal lives of two people, I guess treating them like an experiment to posit and theorize on their actions and casting aspersions on their behaviour is what I have a problem with? It’s sort of another by-product of gossip culture.

Obviously with celebs that line gets blurred a lot more. Their whole job is to get us to like them, so we buy their work, so we like them more, etc. But when it comes to unknowns, I’d prefer to see them work, or even their body of work, before declaring my love / hate. Lol.

Yea I like all of that too. Haven’t seen much of Sara myself. But that stuff doesn’t really sell me on an actor. Like, if my kid’s teacher had great fashion sense, that doesn’t automatically validate their credibility as a teacher to me.

LOL. Let me know how it was. I just don’t get the hype. I may change my tune completely after the movie. So stay tuned I guess? 🤷‍♂️

Questioning.... Sure. Presuming and creating a narrative based on personal opinion, while subscribing motivations to their actions that is nothing short of an elaborate work of fiction... Nope.
