I happen know somone who is a really big Hollywood star. Like most successful actors, his success is due to his solid business instinct, and his capitalizing on his celebrity status to further his goals. He is known for brawn, not brain, had his share of scandals and been an easy target for endless gossip. Not many people know that he came from a background where the odds were stacked against him. He has "flawed" acting abilities due to a health condition. He did a lot to turn his life around and is now doing rather well for it. He still continues to fight many hardships in his personal life. He donates millions to charities and causes every year, but never lets out a squeak about it. The only reason I know is from conversations with his personal manager and his wife. I've already let him know to steer clear from giving to the FCF! This man is an example to me, of someone who is an easy target of gossip and scandal, yet underrated as a humanitarian. He is genuinely concerned about the welfare of others, has not forgotten his roots and believes in giving back to the community, even communities far away in foreign lands.
