I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.
Actress Jodie Foster • Defending fellow-actress Kristen Stewart, and any public figure who found themselves in the spotlight at a young age, while also warning the parents of would-be actors and actresses. Foster, a close friend of Stewart after their work on the 2002 film ‘Panic Room’, wrote a column for The Daily Beast on the possibility of stars leading normal and/or private lives. Considering she’s one of Hollywood’s most experienced actresses — with 46 years under her belt after starting at the young age of 3 — Foster’s work offers a unique perspective from someone on the receiving end of societal scrutiny.  source (viafollow)

Or the massive payday that Robert Downey Jr. saw as a result of the first ‘Avengers' flick? Then again, maybe Disney and Marvel realize that — after you release the third-highest grossing film of all time — you’re going to have to pay your all-star cast a bit more money to get them all back for the sequel.
