Actors, pop stars, and presenters are among the people who enthral, mesmerize, and even inspire us. Their performances offer us an escape, even if just for a little while, from the mundane aspects of our lives. The glitz, glamour, and romance of their own lives, in turn, make us wonder about what goes on, or what went on, behind the silver screen.
