Whatever they might say, the rich and famous still have their lives worked out but I can't help but feel sometimes sorry for them. Lets look at Jennifer Aniston as an example, imagine millions of people calling you washed out, talentless, boring, crazy. Having photographers follow you around all day (and be careful to not accidentally expose your undies) and while still being inexplicably employed she has had some sort of rough patch. After years of having the whole Brangelina thing following her around, recently she first encounters credit fraud and now she's getting attacked all over for using the "R" word.
While on "Live with Regis and Kelly" Jen was talking about her decision to pose as Barbara Streissand and how she likes to play dress up.
"Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard! "
To be honest I don't know who to side her, a highly unforgiving and close minded politically correct society, or the celebrity who should by now know better. It's one of those double standards where the actual word in this case wasn't really used as something offensive but it does express the ignorance that many of us are guilty of. How many times have we used the expression "that's retarded" but the only reason we get away with it is because we're not famous. Yet, we, I personally, would do anything to be rich and famous.
