Celebrities Get Sick Too

When we think of celebrities we tend to think of them as indestructible and far greater than reality. The truth of the matter is that celebrities are human just like us and they go through a lot of the same things we go through.  Below is a top five of celebrities that suffer from ailments like we do.


  • Tony Braxton- The Grammy winning singer suffers from Lupus, which could kill her.
  • Alec Baldwin- The 30- Rock star suffers from Chronic Lyme Disease.
  • Morgan Freeman­- The Oscar winning superstar suffers from Fibromyalgia that gives him chronic joint pain.
  • Tom Hanks- Arguably Hollywood’s biggest star, Hanks suffers from diabetes.
  • Catherine Zeta Jones- The Oscar winner suffers from an unfortunate case of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorders can truly throw off a person’s chemical balance not to mention, moods.


Everyone can get sick, even celebrities.

A Great Story Will Create a Flock of Talent

Shawshank Redemption

A bad script will kill a movie, and often times it will take stars and move them to places far away. It’s more than fair to assume that a good story will draw talent like flies are drawn to, you know. A great example of a fantastic story is Morgan Freeman’s reaction to Shawshank Redemption.

Shawshank RedemptionWhen sent the script for the film Freeman did not know what part they wanted him to play he only knew that he wanted to be in the film. Freeman was given the part of Red but he stated that he would have played any part that they wanted him to. The compelling nature of the story was what moved Freeman to want to be involved.

In the end words on paper are powerful enough to sway a star either way, positively or negatively.
