With the economy in the tank, unemployment remaining high, and a record number of people on entitlement programs, one would be hard-pressed to find something to complain about if you had great success and wealth. Yet Hollyweird types, with their fame and money, still find a reason to complain.
Celebrities who love to complain
FOX News: They’re too pretty, too rich or too famous. Poor babies.
Scarlett Johansson net worth: $35 million. Despite her A-list Hollywood status, Scarlett Johansson wants people to know that it is really, really hard to be so beautiful. She was quoted as saying that she lost out on roles, specifically because she is just too sexy. “That has happened to me before, yeah. That’s always an unfortunate thing to figure out, ‘Why can’t you see?!’ For me, I would imagine when casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definitely not sexy.”
Blake Lively net worth: $8 million. Blake gained stardom by starring on the teen drama “Gossip Girl.” She recently complained that the show that made her a star takes up too much of her time. “We shoot nine months out of the year, so there are so many films I can’t do,” says the poor little darling. “On my latest movie I would go and take a day off from ‘Gossip Girl’ in New York and go to Connecticut and shoot that and then come back the next day. And they don’t really like to share you.”
Evangeline Lilly net worth: $15 million.The former star of “Lost” is not exactly modest when it comes to her good looks. “I used to cry myself to sleep wishing I was ugly because of the way men leered at and disrespected me,” she once said.
Johnny Depp net worth: $350 million. Johnny Depp hasn’t been shy about expressing his desire for anonymity. But recently his comments which compared a photo shoot to rape, went a bit too far. “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow,” he said about photo shoots. “Raped… It feels like a kind of weird… just weird, man.” He released a heartfelt apology later admitting that it was a poor choice of words.
Jessica Biel net worth: $18 million. The actress claims that her good looks are the reason behind her not even getting considered more dramatic film roles, calling natural beauty “a problem.” In an interview with Allure magazine, she explained, “I just want an opportunity.”
Kristen Stewart net worth: $55 million. “What people told me [when I signed on to ‘Twilight’] was that there would be a lot of fan girls, people who love the books,” she tells Allure magazine. “But people don’t tell you that as long as you’re living in Los Angeles, it’s a show every second of your day. It’s like the Kristen show. And it’s so boring!” She also later went on to explain that fame felt like she was being raped.
