When you’re a super famous celebrity, you have two options – to constantly stay locked away behind heavy security, or to just simply live your life as normally as possible and attempt to get away with it. These 5 stars say they won’t let their fame inhibit how they want to live and won’t let paparazzi and fan encounters keep them indoors. Doing what they please, they aren’t afraid to hit the grocery store or coffee shop, even if it can get a little awkward at times.
Lily-Rose grew up in the spotlight and has learnt how to pay no attention to fame: “I grew up with the media circus. My whole life. My parents were very calm about the photographers, the fans, and all that. But I understood right away that I hadn’t done anything to deserve that attention. No matter what happens, it will be there. I didn’t choose it. You just can’t take that too seriously. You need to live your life. And stay calm.”
Matt attempts to live as normally as possible: ”You have to live your life as normal as you can. I get the train and wear a hat, but I do because I think you’ve got to go about your everyday life as best you can. It’s slightly different for Daniel Craig he’s a global superstar. I’m not quite on the James Bond level but, hey, that’s the plan.”
Taylor has been plagued by stalkers and some scary fans but she is determined to continue living the life she wants: ”There are a lot of them. I just try to be safe and be conscious of people around me. It’s the same with paparazzi; it’s something you just have to deal with. It’s the price you pay for getting to do what you love. You can let it take over your life and make you fearful all the time, or you can live your life in spite of it.”
Cara likes to go for walks and tries not to let fame stand in her way: ”I like to walk around a lot. It really upsets me when I can’t walk because I love walking so when I can’t, because of too many people or whatever, it really upsets me. When I was just a New Yorker I’d go and walk through Times Square and just walk around, it’s really funny. People always just look (at me) and double take … They always looks at me and go, ‘Do I know you from school.’ People always say, ‘You look like that girl.’ It’s great, I love it!”
Drew simply goes about her day as she pleases although she often tries to avoid being recognised: “I don’t even know I’m doing it anymore, but the other day, I realised I spend most of my life contorting my face to look different. I find if I don’t make eye contact and I walk around so people don’t notice me, I can really just live a normal life.”
