It's true that movie stars of the Golden Age (which ended in the '60s) rarely appeared on television, except on Academy Awards night. It's true that rarely you'd see one on What's My Line? or the Tonight Show, but hardly ever ACTING on a show or sitting on one of these game shows, they way they do today. "Movie stars" today are more like TV people. With all the entertainment shows both on network and cable TV, we see these "movie stars" like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston every hour, every day. They are covered to death and are as familiar to us as the girl who sacks groceries at the supermarket.
There is no "mystique" about any of them. Today, there is such a fierce hunger for "celebrity," everybody is trying to be one: policemen, "stars" of reality programs, murderers, rapists, runaway brides, adulterers...everybody wants to get their face on TV and "get some of that fame."
Today's actors are on late night, The View, Ellen, Today, Good Morning America, Extra, Entertainment Tonight, A Current Affair, Tony Danza, Regis and Kelly, etc. I get sick of looking at them! They even show up on Fear Factor...anything to get their faces on TV! Even news shows stop to talk about Britiney Spears or Michael Jackson or JLo's butt.
When I turn on TV, I have it on five minutes and they are talking about some "celebrity." Why? Because that's all they think that people are interesting in hearing about. Today's movies end up on TV or DVD so fast, what's the sense in going to the movies? As you know, I cannot tolerate multiplex "theatres." Give me my grand movie palace and while you're at it, SOME REAL STARS!
