would be interesting to find out where the term, "movie
stars" originated. A possible answer would be that in
the beginning of the industry, this was a marketing term to
seduce us, an audience that is fascinated with this new way to
be entertained. For instance, titles like "A Star Is
Born" and many other stories of women being plucked out of
obscurity to become celebrities have definitely defined a
generation who fantasized of "living" and identifying
themselves as "stars."
Today, just like we know more
about the stars, galaxies and the universe, we also know more
about the realities of the lives of today's celebrities, unlike
their predecessors, whose lives were sometimes tightly locked up
and not publicized.
Still, it cannot be denied that
today's movie stars have economic power, not only at the box
office, but also in providing "a living" for many who
"celebrate" their "star status."
So whether we live in our own
fantasies of being "stars" or have awakened to
the tough-business side of being a "star," or
simply want to read and be a part of these talented people by
finding out more about them, thanks to them, they invite us into
their artistic realms where all can benefit.
Finally, movie stars are the
direct proof of the power of the motion picture.
