Well, it's another sad story from the "entertainment capital of the world." There's a lot of it behind all that Hollywood hype.
The sadness behind the stardom hit me again when I read about something that happened to a woman who at times, has been the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She's been married to two of Hollywood's biggest actors; she's been a cover girl on national magazines. But recently she was the subject of a friend's urgent 911 call. She was rushed to the hospital for her reaction to the dangerous drugs she was using.
Her own words in a recent interview reveal the hurting heart behind the glamour. "What scares me is that I'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I'm really not loveable; that I'm not worthy of being loved. That there's something fundamentally wrong with me." And sadly, a lot of us non-celebrity types hear those words and think, "I know the feeling."
