I love watching old movies and reading about old Hollywood, especially in its heyday. The 1920s through the 1950s represent my favorite eras. Hollywood was a different place then, and celebrities were different too. Were they better? Actually, I'd say yes. The celebrities of today are on a totally different scale than they used to be back in the day. Some of it they've done themselves, and some of it they haven't. For instance, check out some reasons celebrities aren't the same, and see if you don't agree.

The tabloids probably represent the most serious reason celebrities aren't the same as they used to be. Things used to be secret and sacred in Hollywood – people might have known about them, as in the case of Rock Hudson, but they were respectful. Those who knew didn't tell, and reporters didn't cross the bounds of integrity to find out. Now, if a celebrity ever gets caught doing something wrong, bad, strange, or out of the ordinary, you know it'll be splashed across lurid newspapers, trashy magazines, and all over the internet in no time at all.
