I personally think film stars and cricketers (and other sports) stars are given too much importance in today's society. While it is true they have a talent they use as a professional to make money, what makes them so special that they have to earn millions of dollars? They are usually arrogant, spoiled, and somewhat dis-functional when it comes to fitting into mainstream society. They spend exhorbitant amounts of money on frivolous things; they seldom stay married for very long; they have huge, lavish homes worth millions of dollars that few people could ever hope to afford; they are usually iinvolved in some sort of scandal somewhere. I will admit there are a few exceptional movie stars and sports figures who contribute to charitable institutions and foundations and try to help others out with their earnings. I actually admire them. But, as a whole, most famous people are just that . . . famous . . . and sooner or later they are going to be too old to do what they do now.
I think more importance should be shown to those whose lives are devoted to making a difference in the world today. They are the ones who should be applauded and admired; they are the ones who should be making millions because they will turn right around and spend it on those less fortunate than themselves while they themselves live within their means and remain humble.
