Tobey Maguire feels like a "zoo animal". The Spider-Man 3 actor refuses to give away many details about his private life, because it makes him feel like a creature on display for other people's pleasure. He fumed: "I don't want to give my personal life away to whoever decides to pick up a magazine. "I'm not a zoo animal on display. Some people obviously welcome that, creating certain behaviour so that a particular type of press attention never fades. But it's not for me."
This is not the first time Tobey has hit out against celebrity culture. He recently admitted he can't understand society's obsession with famous people, but admits he knows about the antics of stars like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton because no one can escape gossip. The actor - who has a one-year-old daughter, Ruby, with his jewellery designer fiancee Jennifer Meyer - said: "I'm not interested in gossip. Well, I say that, yet I'm up on most of the stuff because people talk about it all the time. "It's like, 'Did you see what Britney Spears did? She shaved her head!' How do I know that? Why should I know that? I can't believe that this stuff makes the news!"
