Young actors and actresses are some of the most famous people in the world. They are idolized by millions of fans across the world, who look to them as a role model for them or their children. As young actors start to gain more fame, the public eye on that person starts to get larger and larger as people wait for that person to make a mistake. When that person finally does make a mistake, the media starts criticizing that person which can hurt his or her public perception. While it is damaging to.
When I was about 5 or 6 years old, my family were the people in my life that I looked up to the most. I wanted to be just like my older brother in everything I did and my Mom and Dad were my biggest role models. Yet as I grew older my roles models and influences changed. My friends at school started to impact my decisions more than my siblings and parents. I think that was only natural for me to grow apart from my brothers, being that I am the only girl.
The same instinct kicks in for media role models. Maybe not so much. Role models matter.
To begin with, stardom, fame, wealth and glory never comes alone. It brings a tremendous burden of standing mannerism and cautious attitude. Those who fail to do so, not only put into danger their position in people, but are also responsible for promoting negative trends in their followers. Hence I acknowledge the statement that the celebrities bear huge responsibilities to act as role models.
