These people are just that.... people!!!
They do a job that is in the public eye and also very long hours. They may get good payment but money does not mean a good life. An instant example is the present court case in the States of the alleged Catherine Zeta Jones stalker. It has gone on and on and it is not even the proper court case yet. And now the fiancee of the accused as said she confirmed to him that Michael Douglas seduced her!!!
This is what people have to put up with and why convention/event organisers will put the guests in hotels along way away from the event itself.
Father Coop....you ain't stalking me in my free time!!
'Just people' don't require bodyguards, 'just people' don't get £25 for their signature, 'just people' don't get the same level of treatment...
These people (generally) are paid to be at an event, and as a result, some of their privacy is lost. Maybe it's fair, maybe it's not, but it's the so called price of fame. (That said, when the event is over, it's game over!)
If they've got any sense, they'll roll with it, play along with their fans, meet people, try and have fun and not get upset when someone asks them for an autograph whilst they're in the toilet (I was at a convention a few years back when this happened!)
