Adam Brody. I know you’re thinking ‘That name sounds familiar but I can’t place him.’ He was in The OC and has done nothing of much relevance since then. Well, he recently was on Diablo Cody‘s new YouTube talk show Red Band Trailer where they discussed many things, including the ever ubiquitous debate: Red Lobster or Olive Garden?
They finally started talking about fame and celebrity and the pressure that comes with it. Diablo asked, “Do you enjoy being famous, or do you wish that you could just be an actor apart from all that, a la Kristen Stewart?”
“It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity,” he said. “At the same time, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do,” Brody said, calling back to Cody’s reference to Stewart.
“It’s like, quit … you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like if it’s that much of a problem…there’s the door.“
I think he has a point, but I don’t feel it’s specifically Stewart. Many young actors blow up in these huge movies and then complain about no privacy – um, that’s the deal you make with the devil when you sell your soul for millions of dollars a picture. That’s how that works in Hollywood.
