Life in Entertainment
By Tommy Garrett
Young and Restless
No, not the daytime show. I am discussing the young actors and actresses who are
trying to become major players in the industry today, who seem to forget it's
all about work. Paris Hilton is the first and most famous one that has not taken
any acting lessons; she just likes to go to parties and be famous for being
famous. Then there is Lindsay Lohan, a child star that has lots of talent and is
beautiful, but who won't remain steady or disciplined. She is also out partying
every night, and having car accidents, like it's just a joke. The biggest danger
she has is that she will become known as a bad girl only and not be taken
seriously as an actress.
That is what happened to Tori Spelling over a decade ago, and youth is fleeting.
No matter how famous or beautiful you are, the day will come when your craft
will have to sustain you. Kirstend Dunst is dancing around from man to man--
Jake this week, Orlando next. She was sensational as a little girl in "Interview
with the Vampire" over a decade ago, but now it's time to settle down and find
serious roles, not the drab and romantic comedy, "Elizabethtown."
I think so many of these youngsters have bad advice and bad handlers, or they
would be working to become the next Johnny Depp and yes, Demi Moore. Demi spent
her youth working. Yes, working! She may not be Julia Roberts today as a leading
lady, but she comes closer than most. She is, however, considered an actress,
not an aging wannabe. That is unfortunately going to be the way of so many of
the young stars today who are throwing away their future.
