I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful, much adulated, very famous and very unhappy.
For me, growing up, the downside of it was that as a kid you don't want to stand out. You don't want to have a famous father let alone get a job because of your famous father, you know? But I'm a product of nepotism. That's how I got my foot in the door, through my dad.
I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard to not trade on it in any way.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions.
C. Wright Mills
I put my money in the bank: I have to think of life after modeling, when I'm not famous any more.
Fame - anyone who says he doesn't like it is crazy.
I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a check in the right place and shutting up about it.
I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous.
Fame is like caviar, you know - it's good to have caviar but not when you have it at every meal.
I like being famous when it's convenient for me and completely anonymous when it's not.
What a heavy burden is a name that has become too famous.
I absolutely loved being famous. It was all great, up until the point when it wasn't.
Being famous is not something that would make me feel successful - unless one was striving for mediocrity.
The cool thing about being famous is traveling. I have always wanted to travel across seas, like to Canada and stuff.
I just want to make music, I don't want people to talk about me. All I've ever wanted to do was sing. I don't want to be a celebrity. I don't want to be in people's faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven't even known I'm on.
Stardom can be a gilded slavery.
A sign of celebrity is that his name is often worth more than his services.
Daniel J. Boorstin
For famous men have the whole earth as their memorial.
Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate.
The nice thing about being a celebrity is that, if you bore people, they think it's their fault.
Henry A. Kissinger
A famous person to themselves, they don't get up in the morning and think, I'm famous. I'm not famous to me. Famous is a perception.
Famous people feel that they must perpetually be on the crest of the wave, not realising that it is against all the rules of life. You can't be on top all the time, it isn't natural.
Olivia De Havilland
I think that when you are famous every weakness is exaggerated.
Passion for fame: A passion which is the instinct of all great souls.
Wood burns because it has the proper stuff in it; and a man becomes famous because he has the proper stuff in him.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Martin Luther King, Jr.
