Washington (ANI): Pretty woman Julia Roberts has slammed celebrity-obsessed showbiz, branding it 'grotesque'. The 40-year-old Academy award-winning actress is disgusted by the current state of the entertainment industry, insisting that she would have avoided being part of the film industry if it had been as cut-throat when she began her career.
"I think it's just grotesque. It's like a circus sideshow. I don't know why anybody would even want to go into show business these days, with all of the different magazines and shows. It just wouldn't be worth it," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. The 'Notting Hill' star said that the young actors thrust into the Hollywood limelight due which they make their life full of perils because of increased media interest in celebrity.
"It's too fast. Before, you could build a career over years and many movies. Now it's like you do one good movie and they throw a ton of money at you and a ton of attention at you. "You're being constructed outside of yourself before you even know who you are, and what you are, and how you want to do it, and why you want to do it," she said.
