    It really wouldn't be a bad thing if there were no more actors commanding exorbitant salaries…the magic of the star celebrities has tarnished due to the gossip magazines, the in-your-face interviews, the constant media blitz of everyones' love life, eating habits, and thoughts that really are unimportant…please, no more Jennifer Aniston pining after Brad, no more Paris Hilton and her pets, no more of anyone hogging the limelight!!!!
