They are actual people. Stop harassing them. It doesn’t matter what their sexuality is. If they wanted to talk about it, they would. And besides, you are not going to date them anyways. Because nothing is more of a turn-off than a stalker.
In this day and age, you get to see a lot more of what goes on actor’s lives. However, they are not celebrities. They are talented people who were lucky enough to be in a major film. I’m sure they’re very flattered by some of it, but it’s kind of creepy to have random teenage girls (yes, the majority of the people doing this are teenage girls) go on endlessly about how “sexy” and “talented” you are. It’s one thing to say “Hey Killian, I loved your performance in Les Mis. I hope you come to the US!” It’s an entirely different thing to say “Hey George, come father my children P.S. are you and Aaron dating?”
They don’t have bodyguards. And some people are teetering dangerously on the ledge of “I’m going to come to your flat and have sex with you.” Conceivably, someone could show up at the stage door with a gun or follow them home or harass their family members. I recommend anyone interested in pursuing a career on the stage to read Making It on Broadway by David Wienir, Jodie Langel, and Jason Alexander, but anyone who wants to interact with theatre actors should read this passage.
I would not blame any of the actors for leaving Twitter. It’s probably a good thing that Aaron Tveit does not have one, as he would be harassed constantly.
Remember this: they do not owe you anything. Seeing bits of their life on the internet is a privilege, not a right. Anything they want to share with you, they will share with you.
I am a street photographer in New York City. Several months ago, I was approached by a representative of DKNY who asked to purchase 300 of my photos to hang in their store windows “around the world.” They offered me $15,000. A friend in the industry told me that $50 per photo was not nearly enough to receive from a company with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. So I asked for more money. They said “no.”
Today, a fan sent me a photo from a DKNY store in Bangkok. The window is full of my photos. These photos were used without my knowledge, and without compensation.
I don’t want any money. But please REBLOG this post if you think that DKNY should donate $100,000 on my behalf to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. That donation would sure help a lot of deserving kids go to summer camp. I’ll let you guys know if it happens.
Sometimes it’s like companies don’t realise the internet exists.
“If we put it far enough away, there’s no way that will come back to bite us on the ass!”
