Easy. By reading or getting information about them. Not only the positive ones, but also the negative ones. The way she handles her divorce, for example. This woman is the most pictured/featured woman on the planet. Not as a winner, but as a looser. But she fights back and comes out better than her ex-husband.
The way she handles everything shows nothing, but dignity, class and power as a woman. She is also a fierce business woman. Everything she touches turn into a profit. Based on the facts that she has a lot of friends also shows that she has a warm heart. You read the article about her visiting RDJ when nobody did (admitted by RDJ's former agents, and then proven by the last event, somehow, I can believe it was true).
I adored, admired and respected Mother Theresa, even when I never met her.
You don't have to meet or know somebody to adore or respect them. We can follow their lives, learn about their decisions by information. We can learn something from them. The question only, whether or not we are willing to use our brains when we read the information.
Thanks for explaining. I understand your adoration for Mother Theresa because she did great work for humanity. I adore Ghandi, for example - I am even on the hunt for a good poster of him to frame and put in my hallway. But someone who pretends to be another person for a living, or is famous for being...I don't know, big-breasted, or having romped naked with another so-called celebrity in front of a camera; these people just do not "do it" for me. I don't think they contribute that much. Jen cannot seriously be compared to Mother Theresa. I know she may do some great charity work outwith her formal occupation but come on, she is just an actress who earns a fortune for doing very little. The only thing she has to do is maintain her appearance - especially her weight, and work for perhaps 3 months out of 12 for huge amounts of money. Good for her, but why should anyone think highly of that? Plus women go through divorces with grace all the time, I know many that have done so and I am proud of them.
Celebrity worship just doesn't compute with me, but thank you for trying to explain. I don't find Jen offensive and I still watch the re-runs of Friends
if I happen to catch what I call "incidental television" - at a friend's house, or at my parent's, for example. I don't own a TV and I don't buy magazines or tabloid papers. So you can see why I may have trouble understanding this level of celebrity worship. I reject it, I think it is ridiculous.
I am not comparing her with Mother Theresa (the idea makes me cringe, actually). I just wanted to say that we can adore/respect somebody without meeting them.
I am not sure being an actress or performer can be said for doing a little. Maintaining an appearance can be a Bleet sometimes. Any flaw that appears on your face or body can be deadly for your career/life. Yes, many women have gone through divorces, but none - if not very few - gone through in a global dimension the way Jen did. Still, she's graceful. And she makes me laugh. I don't always agree/like her movies, but as a woman, she's one of my idols.
I am not worshiping any celebrity. Brian May of Queen, perhaps. He's a rocker, he's classy, intelligent (he has a doctorate title in Astrophysics), down to earth, he's a soft-spoken man and very kind, handsome and what a sexy mouth he has....
, I think I am drooling now.
Haha...it's all coming out now isn't it? I have a secret crush on *drum roll* Russell Brand
I give my full permission to be verbally abused in any reply to this horrendous confession.
Okay, I understand better now: you see Jen as a positive role model. I can well understand that. Although I mainly look for role models in real life, I definitely see Ghandi as a role model. And I agree that Jennifer has gone down in history as having the most humiliating public divorce, and she handled it with dignity and grace.
Justin still sucks though
