ERIN ELMORE: Actress Sharon Stone complains that being famous is 'expensive'

In a recent interview with InStyle Magazine, actress Sharon Stone stirred controversy with her remarks about the challenges of fame, complaining how it is “expensive” to be famous.

Stone’s portrayal as primarily playing femmes fatale and women of mystery on film and television earned her the status of one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1990s. However, her recent complaints about the expenses and inconveniences of fame have left some questioning her gratitude and perspective.

While Stone boasts an estimated net worth of $60 million, she lamented the costs associated with her celebrity status, including the need for glam, security, and publicists. She also complained about how she is unable to fly on commercial airlines because of her fame.

“It’s very expensive to be famous,” Stone complained in her interview with InStyle. “You go out to dinner, and there’s 15 people at the table, and who gets the check? You get the $3,000 dinner check every single time.”

Critics have been quick to point out the stark contrast between Stone’s complaints and the realities faced by many individuals working in far less glamorous and lucrative professions. While Stone enjoys the comforts of the movie industry, complete with elaborate sets, gourmet catering, and pampering, many Americans across the country are working hard, blue-collar jobs that require extensive labor.

In her interview, Stone even tried to identify with blue-collar workers, attempting to claim that both her and her colleagues are blue collar.

“We’re a very blue collar group,” Stone said referring to herself and pop superstar Rita Ora. “We work.”

Celebrities like Stone are absolutely sickening and indicative of an American culture that is unappreciative of its fortunes. It is also important to remember that celebrities do not represent the average American, and their rhetoric about the hardships of life should not be applied to everyone across the country.
