“Actors didn’t use to be celebrities. A hundred years ago, they put the theaters next to the brothels. Actors were poor. Celebrities used to be kings and queens. Then the United States abolished monarchy, and now there`s this coming together of show business and celebrity. I don’t think it’s healthy. I don`t want to sound self-important, but all these celebrity shows and magazines - it comes from us, from Hollywood, from our country. We’re the ones creating it. And I think it works in close step with a lot of other bad things that are happening in the world. It promotes greed, it promotes being selfish and it promotes this ladder, where you`re a better person if you have more money. It`s not at all about the work itself. Don`t get me wrong. I love movies. But this myth of celebrity has nothing to do with movies.” - Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Oh Phil Dunphy.
