Famous About

What guides me is to do work that's more avant-garde - things that I think are special. You can easily become a celebrity and get caught up in all that blur. I just want to work and surprise myself.

Been Everybody

Every celebrity case I've been involved in - I've been involved in a great many - the one thing you can be sure of is they don't get the same justice as everybody else. It could be worse, it could be better, it's never the same.

Think I Think

I think that 'celebrity' and 'chef' should be a permanent oxymoron.

I think that I was lucky that I was 30 when I did 'Love Story', which came with this extravagant pop celebrity. I had already done 15 years of what I call 'real' work.' I was a waitress, chambermaid, and a photographer's assistant, so I knew that I was tremendously lucky as a novice actor to have that big hit.

- Ali MacGraw

Think Very

I think it's tough when you're very young and you maybe fall for the celebrity and being the center of attention.

- Ali MacGraw

Very Hundred

Even when writing your own poems, you need to talk to people; you need to magpie around, getting words and things.

There are always a hundred people in the background who have helped to make it.

- Alice Oswald

Voice Louder

There are times when the voice of repining is completely drowned out by various louder voices: the voice of government, the voice of taste, the voice of celebrity, the voice of the real world, the voice of fear and force, the voice of gossip.

- Alice Oswald


With celebrity being our new religion, it's increasingly difficult to start up on your own. Talented young designers are more likely to either go and work for celebrity brands or huge fashion houses than ever before.

- Alice Temperley

Through Some

You can watch a little bit of war from your nice living room - 30 seconds of what's going on in Syria - and when you've had enough, switch over to some celebrity programme. We live our life through screens and images in this way, and we don't know what is real or fake anymore. It doesn't matter.

- Alison Jackson

Religious Shared

The religious imagery and fairytales that formed our shared cultural references have been replaced by the cult of celebrity. Marilyn is the sex goddess, Camilla Parker Bowles is cast as the wicked witch, Che Guevara is the revolutionary. Celebrities have become visual shorthand for narratives that shape our lives.

- Alison Jackson


I'm not really interested in the celebrity themselves. I'm interested in the perception of the celebrity.

Celebrities do look different in real life from our images of them - there is a big gap. And that is what my work is about: the gap between the image and the celebrity themselves.

- Alison Jackson

Through Holy

Now celebrity has taken on a holy status all of its own, and we look to the stars to provide us with the transcendental experience that was once achieved through religion.

Politics Image

I'm really interested in how we view the public figure, what makes a public figure, what makes a celebrity, and how images make politicians, so I take an interest in politics, but it's really an interest in the image.

Artist Want

I want to be an artist. I don't want to be a celebrity.

Love Bed

I have a lot of trouble understanding how people see me as a celebrity. I work 14 hours a day, and then I just want to talk to my family, see the people I love, pet my dog, and go to bed. I'm not looking to be best friends with or emulate a celebrity.

- America Ferrera

Gift Think

I think it's a gift to become a star, to become a celebrity.

- Anderson Cooper


Celebrity is everything in this country.

- Andrew Breitbart

Political Own

If there is a person behaving more destructively in popular culture than Mario Lavandeira, I cannot think of one. He has used cruelty as a crass mechanism to build up his own celebrity and has utilized political correctness to protect himself while using it as a weapon to dehumanize those he doesn't agree with.

- Andrew Breitbart

Famous Made

There's so much made of the exceptional and the celebrity, the famous, and the wannabees.

- Andrew Clements

Cards Code

The working class of England take their deracination completely for granted. Disenchantment is the happy code that informs every byway of the underclass: service jobs, celebrity dreams, Lotto wins, leisured poverty on pre-crunch credit cards, it's all there, part of the story of an English people whose grandparents never had it so good.

- Andrew O'Hagan

Behind Been

I always knew I wanted to be in front of the camera. But even after 10 years behind the scenes at CBS News producing live segments, celebrity profiles, and breaking news, I still hadn't been given the chance to be on TV.

- Andy Cohen

Been Turned

I've been a hip hop head forever. So when it turned out that we were gonna start getting celebrity guests for every show, I wanted rap guys from the get-go.

- Andy Milonakis

New Like

Well, I refer to 'Celebrity Jeopardy ' as the short-bus 'Jeopardy,' because it is a lot easier. Like, there was a whole column basically naming stores in New York.

- Andy Richter

Your Part

It's weird to have people so interested in your personal life. It's a part of the business that grosses me out. I'm always bummed out for people who just happen to be dating a celebrity, and they're also famous, and they can't live their life.

- Andy Samberg

Some Policing

I got the wake-up call that no one is policing our oceans. I wondered, how can I do anything? What really can I do to make things better? There are some perks to being a celebrity. My job is to be funny once in a while, but it's my responsibility to make good use of it.

- Angela Kinsey

Business Often

The Fashion Fund celebrates the real passion that underlies the fashion business, not the frothy world of glamour and celebrity that so often surrounds it.

Stand Brash

I can't stand the word 'celebrity.' It's such a brash word.

- Annie Leibovitz

Play Affect

They do not air 'GH' in Holland, so I don't get recognized. But the Dutch are wonderfully unimpressed with celebrity, so even if the show did play over there it probably wouldn't affect things much. It's a wonderful life and I am so blessed.

- Anthony Geary

Some Projects

Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I'm going to do that.

- Anthony Mackie

Movie Set

Denzel's all about the work. He's all about the acting. He's an actor. He'll tell you himself, 'I'm not a movie star, celebrity, something else. I'm an actor.' He steps on a set, that's what he is, and that's what he gives you. He gives his heart.

- Antoine Fuqua

Career I Think

Sometimes I get extremely disturbed with the things that are written. But you can't do anything about it. As a celebrity, you are putting yourself out there to be judged, and that's fine. I am now learning not to get affected by such things. I am building my career and making choices that I think are right while minding my own business.

- Anushka Sharma

Never Same

I have never emulated any star or celebrity completely, and I hope nobody does the same of me.

- Anushka Sharma

Wealth Been

Him Had

I know that when Terry and I were together, 10 years ago, he did not appreciate it when people would ask him what it is like being partnered with a celebrity. Precisely because it suggested that he had no value.

- Armistead Maupin

Deal Very

For the most part, I have a very manageable celebrity. People recognize me from time to time, and they usually say very appreciative things. It affords me a great deal of pleasure.

- Armistead Maupin

Week Mitt Romney

- Artur Davis

Week Country

We have a country to turn around. This week you will nominate the most experienced executive to seek the presidency in 60 years in Mitt Romney. He has no illusions about what makes America great, and he doesn't confuse the presidency with celebrity, or loftiness with leadership.

Reason Some

Decade Over

As an entertainment journalist for over a decade, I travel to great places for work, from red carpets in Rio, movie premieres in London to celebrity sit-downs in Bora Bora.

Surreal Very

It's really hard when a celebrity dies out of nowhere, 'cause it's very shocking... surreal.

Making Subject

My favorite subject was English or creative writing. We did poems and making a magazine, and I did one on celebrities. I called it 'Celebrity Life Magazine.' I interviewed my good friend Kaley Cuoco.

- Ashley Tisdale

Telling Maybe

I just always feel that you need Degree deodorant when you have those moments whether they are embarrassing or whatever, but every day you should be protected. I wish that maybe I had a type of celebrity to look up to when I was young telling me what to use and stuff.

- Ashley Tisdale

Feel I See

I see too many celebrity kids who can't sing. If you don't have it, give it up, because people are brutal. I never want my kids to feel like they have to live up to what I've done.

- Charles Kelley

Spending Money

When you're a music celebrity, your fans are used to spending money on you. They go to your shows. They want to look like you. They want to be like you. You become part of their life.

- Charles Koppelman

Interested Idea

I'm not interested in the idea of celebrity.

Famous Reaction

My reaction when I hear the word 'celebrity' is, 'Who, me?' It doesn't feel like I'm famous.

Public Life Any

I'm not a celebrity. I'm intentionally and defiantly not a celebrity. I don't have any interest in it. I don't have any talent for it. I keep my personal life out of my public life as cleanly as I can.

- Charlie Kaufman

Play Very

One of the great things about a celebrity pro-am is that you get to play along with the very best professional golfers in the world.

- Cheech Marin

Something Bring

I wanted to bring something to 'Celebrity Apprentice' to let America know that you don't have to be back-stabbing and mean-spirited in order to a challenge.

- Cheryl Tiegs

Crowd Idea

It's never a good idea for a celebrity to sign autographs or take pictures if a crowd is gathering.

- Chevy Chase

Think News

Celebrity culture has gone crazy, and I think the reason is that real news is just not bearable, and it also seems impossible to change anything.

- Chris Martin

Feet More

More than anything, what we do as actors is to sit and watch, and I would never want to get so lost in the celebrity bubble I couldn't do that because my feet no longer touch the ground.

- Chris Pine


Celebrity is intoxicating.

- Chris Pratt

Different World

Obama was 200 percent advertising. I promote myself to sell my brands. Because now I am a kind of celeb. I am in a different world than the fashion industry. I am with Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Madonna. I build me as a celebrity.

- Christian Audigier

Which TV

For me I'm a luxury brand trying to prove to people and the industry that it's not about being a TV celebrity in any which way, it's about being a designer and having a business and being successful at that.

- Christian Siriano

Talking Then

Most of the time, I've got my kids with me, so I'm not as prone to meeting people. And then, you never really know if someone is talking to you because you're a celebrity.

- Christie Brinkley

Very Before

When you think Selena Gomez, you think 'celebrity.' But really, she does so many things for me. She's very caring. Before she goes on stage, she's a goofy girl. She's fun-loving and totally lovable, which I say in the most honest way. She's not even a celebrity to me; she's just a really cool person.

- Christina Grimmie

Think Fan

I think chatbots are the future of engagement between a fan and a brand or celebrity.

- Christina Milian

Teacher Just

I'm really not a celebrity; I'm just a teacher.

Love Love-Hate

America has a love-hate relationship with celebrity. We love to follow celebrities, but we also love to mock them. And secretly, we believe we're better than they are.

- Chuck Todd

Pay Go

So many celebrity websites you go to are so sterile that you know they just pay somebody to do it and there's not even an ounce of them in it.

- Cindy Margolis

Role Set

I know this is going to sound cheesy and like I'm trying to be Miss America, but the most important responsibility a celebrity has is to set an example and be a role model.

- Clay Aiken

Image Need

I need theatre for my equilibrium, because in theatre the actors don't care so much about image, about celebrity - you are more independent. There is not the narcissism, maybe, that you find in cinema.

- Clotilde Hesme

Image Need

I need theatre for my equilibrium because in theatre, the actors don't care so much about image, about celebrity; you are more independent.
