Everyone needs entertainment in their lives. Every single one.
Now people from this industry went through a lot of stuff. For starters, celebrities party all night, listen to loud music, drugs, sex, alcohol and booze are the major part of a celebrity’s life.
They do because when are in the limelight, you don't give a shit. Isn't it true, who doesn’t get fascinated by money, fame, fans and the phrase Lights, Camera, and Action?
So, if you have any plans of becoming a celebrity or famous personality in Hollywood, you might want to reconsider because in this article you will find what actually happens in the limelight.
There is so much more which goes in Hollywood than just fame, walking in red carpet, money, and millions of fan following.
When you see a picture in a magazine or on a gossip website, and it seems like the celebrity is posing in a staged photo, then it means they are.
In 2016, a photographer revealed that many celebs stage their pictures to have better control over their image. Kim Kardashian is one star who keeps her personal paparazzo on speed dial.
Like Kardashian, there are many celebs who review every single image of theirs, and they’re properly edited before they’re sold to magazines.
If you want to put an actor or actress in their best performance, all it takes is an illicit drug.
The cocaine was listed in the budget as “petty cash” and it was freely available on movie sets, one of the dark secrets of Hollywood that they never usually reveal.
Legendary actor Dennis Quaid revealed he had a “casual” addiction to cocaine before he even became a huge star.
Hollywood is the leader in this category when we talk about publicity stunts. There’s no limit to how far the industry will go to get the public’s attention.
There is a fact, in the entertainment world, any kind of attention is good, even if it’s bad one.
We have an example of this, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian started fighting for a spot on the cover of Vogue. Later, it was revealed that she created a firestorm when finally decided to place them on the front page of the fashion magazine.
Everything was planned for the much-needed publicity for the magazine.

To be very honest, it exists everywhere not only in an entertainment industry.
It is a term used in the industry by the celebrities when someone who give them roles in exchange for sexual favours.
Megan Fox revealed in an interview, she said, “Hollywood legends” would invite her to meet, and she would be so excited for the opportunity. Then, when she would show up, she would realize that the meeting was just a ploy.
She said many of the men were able to get away with sleeping with a lot of girls in the industry, but she wasn’t one of them. She would shut them down immediately.
The Mafia connections
People in Hollywood live lavish lifestyles. And that is because they are making some certain things happen in a way which is beneficial to some people whom we call 'MAFIA'.
There was a rumour that a mobster named Mickey Cohen ran the Hollywood underworld.
In 1950, Life magazine published an expose, entitled “Trouble in Los Angeles,” to focus on Cohen and his rampant organized crime units that ran the industry.
It is not at all easy for a celebrity to lead a silent and peaceful life.
In a fairy tale, a celebrity would lead a happy and trouble-free life without any problems.
However, that is not the case in the real world with these celebrities. When something goes wrong, they call a fixer like Michael Sitrick to come to rescue them. If it is not Michael Sitrick, then sure there will be someone else.
No one can avoid Ageism, unless you are an alien or live in space for years.
Some celebrities feel like to hide their actual age and shave a few years off their date of birth.
Junie Hoang, an actress sued the website Internet Movie Database for revealing her true age to the fans.
She lost the case though, but it got her a lot of attention to show how rampant ageism is present in Hollywood.
Now, when two hot actors get in a spot for days and spend as much as time together, then things starts to heat up.
Actors who spend their most of their time filming on set is a clear indication that they’re away from their partners for long periods of time.
Some stars get into a moment of weakness and end up cheating on their partners.
Now, some of the flings end as soon as the film wraps, but others turn into juicy cheating scandals.
Remember the case of Mr. & Mrs Smith when Angelina Jolie began a relationship with Brad Pitt.
Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at that time, and their relationship ended when rumours of the affair came out.
Aniston filed for divorce and why won't she right? and Pitt later married Jolie.
Twilight star Kristen Stewart is an another example who got caught cheating in a scandal.
While she was dating her Twilight costar Robert Pattinson, she was caught making out with director Rupert Sanders on the set of their film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
These two cases are the biggest cheating scandals in the industry.
It was found out that many Hollywood stars have been outed for their improper behaviour with younger children on sets.
Kevin Spacey is one of those stars who allegedly tried taking advantage of a young 14-year old actor.
This was just a one case of this kind in the industry which was exposed, but many believe that there are even more or hidden secrets which are yet to be exposed.
