Successful Movie Stars that Steered Away From the Spotlight and Social Media


Being a celebrity isn’t as easy as it looks; at least, that’s what we’ve been told. While we can not say that we know the exact feeling, the very thought of your every move being monitored or recorded does seem intense, to say the least. With that said, it doesn’t come as a surprise that there are several movie stars that steered away from the spotlight.


For pretty much all celebrities, being in the spotlight is part of the job. However, some stars go to great lengths to avoid it like the plague, understandably so. While it’s easy to see all the benefits you get from being famous, it’s also easy to see the negative sides as well.


The most common question posed to celebs is what bothers them the most about fame. Can you guess what it is? Yes, exactly, paparazzi. We’ve all heard the same answer from celebrities which is “If only I can go to a store and not get photographed or filmed.”

For a lot of celebs, the best option now is to do a lot of things online. Especially last year, many of them declared that they like playing games online, one of the most popular being Henry Cavill, who is now not only melting female hearts, but also got a strong fanbase among geeks and PC gamers. Some celebs even enjoy playing live casino games and poker. For example, Kevin Hart, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are among most mentioned names when it comes to celeb love for poker and poker tournaments.


While at first, this answer screams “privileged” to us, if you think about it, it does make sense. Just imagine having no private life and people and the media making all kinds of lies and rumors about you. In a way, celebrities are often viewed as characters or robots more so than people, and to be able to cope with all of that, one must be very thick-skinned.


Kevin Jonas

2019 was the year when the world’s prayers were answered, and the Jonas Brothers reunited after a six-year hiatus. The question that many people wonder is, what had the brothers been up to since then? While Nick and Joe began other successful solo music projects, Kevin Jonas decided to take on a different path and has traded his guitar strings for business plans. You’ would be surprised to know that Disney star has a JonasWerner construction company that offers custom-built homes and renovations. With that said, if you happen to live in Boonton, New Jersey after you play a round or two of your favorite game online, consider going to this company. Who knows, maybe you will be lucky enough to run in Kevin Jonas himself, wouldn’t that be exciting?


Mara Wilson

If you grew up in the ‘90s, you certainly recognize Mara Wilson as Matilda in the version of the classic Roal Dahl heroine who gets into psychic mischief. After her insanely good and borderline iconic performance, many people believed that Mara had a bright movie career ahead of her. However, that was not the case. While we are confident that she would have been a great and mesmerizing actress, Wilson decided to retire from acting at age 13 and shifted her goals. Believed or not, Wilson has been writing prolifically, including a memoir about her child star status called “Where Am I Now?; True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame”. To this day, this beautiful and talented woman works as a writer and director, and although she has acted in a few minor roles, mainly voiceovers, she has chosen a completely new life for herself.
