Dear Niklas,

Excellent article, way to put everything into perspective!

I always smile when I read about actors complain about: 1. Conditions on the set, or 2. The price of fame (aka living in a fishbowl). Sure does make those bricklayers’ complains look ridiculous! Talking about the easiest job on the planet — you are told what to say, how to say it, how to move, what to wear, & if you don’t get it right the first 50 times, there are other 50 chances waiting for you. They are paid (insane) money based on their looks, & most got into this “business” because they wanted to be famous more than they wanted to breathe. So what I am saying, ever so verbosely, is that I actually respect that Indian shit cleaner much more than I do Ashley & Mary Kay Olsen.
