Actor Julia Roberts is thankful that she entered showbiz in the 1980s, as she believes that modern fame leads one to rehab.



“We live in a culture of meanness. My experience with fame 25 years ago was a gradual progression. These days, it’s catapulting. There’s the express elevator and there’s rehab, and one leads to the other,” the 44-year-old told Australia’s Sunday Telegraph. The actor tackled many roles early in her career, but her portrayal of a prostitute in the film Pretty Woman in 1990 saw her achieve stardom.



“Everybody has an opinion. There’s too much scrutiny and too many beasts that have to be fed. It’s a little bit crazy,” dailystar.co.uk quoted her as saying.
