In a another thread an example of why people dislike Hollywood and Hollywood celebrities. To me the question has always been "why do people love Hollywood" and dote on Hollywood celebrities? Hollywood wouldn't be what it is without millions of people forking out to see what it sells.

At it's best, Hollywood (or any entertainment producer) makes the public feel good about themselves by portraying them as they'd like to be, as they fantasize they are. It offers people a temporary escape from reality and life's troubles, and a chance to live out their daydreams vicariously.

Back in Hollywood's Golden Age, the studio system controlled the actors very tightly, managing every aspect of their lives and keeping all their dirty secrets and indiscretions hidden. The old stars were just as screwed up as today's actors, it's just that no one knew about it then. All the outspokenness of today's actors would never have been tolerated under the old studio system.

People like movies because they take your mind off of "real life" for a few hours.

People like Hollywood celebrities for the same reason they crane their neck to look at a car crash as they pass it on the highway.
