Have you ever fallen in love with a celebrity?

  1. Jul 3, 2016 #1
    A famous singer, actress or in general a girl who is famous and impossible to be with or meet

    Same for girls: singer, actor and in general someone impossible to get

    How did you deal with that? I mean you know it's impossible

    It was easy to get over once you met someone more interesting.

    It never happened to me. But I can easily see how you can avoid it or get out of it. Realize that its not a person that you love, its only a false image made to advertise and make money. It doesn't necessarily mean that the real person behind that image is a bad person, but you can be sure that its not the real person presented to you and there was no intention of any kind of personal relationship in creating that image except at the level that makes the advertisement successful.

    Somewhat related, I once felt strongly about a girl who I merely dreamed about. It was odd. I'm pretty sure the person had no analogue in reality, I wasn't even entirely sure what they looked like but I felt weird about it for a few days- then the feeling basically went away.

    As far as celebrities, I don't watch TV or really any type of digital entertainment, so I don't know much about that.

    Falling in love with a celebrity ? I think it is probably just your admiration you have to idolize the one you are fond of or likely want to be, not really love, with which in most cases needs a time dependent process to grow.
    If I always had to fall for celebrities I solely met or saw on TV shows or in movies, there would have probably been at least 1000 stars I couldn't resist to go out with within a few months. All sound cute and sooo gentle ... before their audience.

    Awful schoolboy crush on Barbara Harris from "A Thousand Clowns". Particularly emotive face .


    It's now fifty years later and Helen Hunt has same effect on me .

    I just sigh.

    Haven't we all?

    I have never really shaken off the spell cast on me by these two eyes, or rather four.
