Singers, actors, painters and many other famous people all have to face the dangers of fame (名声). Wherever they go, people turn up to greet them. Some fans even do something crazy just to see their well-known face, touch their clothes or see them smile. The stars are always surrounded by newspapermen, TV reporters and photographers (摄影师).
Fame brings them quite a lot of money, so they can have easier lives than other people. They live in beautiful houses with housekeepers(管家), gardeners and cooks, but the money does not bring them happiness. The next thing is stress (压力). The more money they get, the more stress they feel. Being stressed for long makes many of them sick. In other words, fame can make a man happy, but it can also destroy(摧毁) him. There are also some famous people that have quiet lives without any serious problems. It depends (取决于) on the person.
