Julie:  Are you going to see the new “Entourage” movie?

Gary:  I am thinking about it. Are you?

Julie:  I am very torn.

Gary:  Really?

Julie:  I enjoyed the series, despite the fact that it’s really crass. And women are not portrayed very positively. But I love some of the characters.

Gary:  Well, there are so many famous people that are going to be in this movie. I’m kind of blown away by how many. I lost track when I was counting. It’s really great. The show is really over the top. They love making these jokes that seem like they’re out of control. And everybody does strange things. Which is kind of the premise of “Entourage.”

Julie:  It sort of illustrates what people with fame and money can do.

Gary:  Yeah. Well if you go, I’d love to hear what you think of it.

If I have extra time maybe it could be interesting movie to see!

Whether or not, celebrities have impact on people, I don’t like to be a famous person to impact on people and to be rich!

There were and are some people in the world who impact on people’s lives, they run the world without of known! I prefer to be one of them instead of being fame to impact on people’s lives!;)

Yes , some people who are rich and famous  kind of live in a parallel universe , as is they are entitle only to follow their own rules . Got in trouble with the law , no problem ,  money can buy the best lawyers  to get them  out of the mess they got into. What would i do if i were a big movie star ? ... pray to God that  never forget that  fame last  only a few days in this world .

Everybody would like to be a fomous person.But being a movie star needs also overwhelming work and stressful routine.I am not sure that everybody can endure it.Anyway,movies stars status is attractive for all.

S&W, what a lovely plan! But I have to say that by a way or another you have to run into paparazzi :)) You don’t know what these people are capable of :))

No, I’m not really interested, I didn’t see the series and I don’t think I’ll see the movie either.

If I were a big movie star! I don’t know! When I think of fame, I don’t see me as a famous actress. I never thought of it. But if I were a celebrity of some sort, I would do my best to live up to others’ expectations not to let them down..
