I agree with you, I think they are on the same level as anyone, with the exception being they usually have MUCH more money than most.
Being in the hospitality industry for several years now I have had the pleasure, and not so pleasurable times, to meet several celebrities. So far I
haven't fainted or cryed. I simply hosted and did my job.
During the filming of 'Remeber the Titans' here at Berry College, we hosted over 200 cast members at our hotel, in particular we had all of the
underage stars. I found Ryan Gosling to be a very nice kid, a gentelman. He even stopped other actors from being a fool at times. Ethan Suplee, who
currently plays 'Randy' on 'My name is Earl', he was rude, crude, loud, and obnoxious. There was one actor, not an underage, who came to my home, he
wanted to see the 100yr house we lived in next to the hotel, or so he said. What he wanted was a giant mirror for his giant bag of coc aine. He
was also in Remeber the Titans.
Mosquito Coast actors, they were nice, they enjoyed being in the south and embraced the antiquing and local foods.
I have a lot of bands who have stayed here, Lynard Skynard, Charlie Daniels, a lot of country and southern rock bands, they are all generally well
behaved while at thier hotels. Most of them rent rooms and only bath in them, they stay on their buses.
This is just an example of what I am exposed to, and never flip out over them.
HOWEVER, If you brought Kid Rock in here, or rather Bob Ritchie, I most likely would be unable to speak or even remain concious. I love him, I know
every word to every song he ever wrote, but I have never been to a concert, this was due to a stupid high school vow between a bunch of my peers, and
I am not the only one who has held true to it, but since finding out that more than one of us did not, I am ready to go see Kid in Febuary. I most
likely will scream, kick, cry, and possibly pass out.

Frampton when I was 14, were in Ft Walton Beach florida, and he was staying at the same hotel, I was star struck and cryed, but it quickly faded
because he was so nice, and invited me and my brother to play tennis.
