Move over traditional movie stars who refuse to pose for paparazzi , breeze by reporters on red carpets or shake hands with their fans!
Sorry guys, but fan unfriendly behavior is so NOT 2010! Traditional inaccessible A-List behavior simply won’t pull people in to see your films anymore. Consider the evidence: Reese Witherspoon‘s new box office bomb, How Do You Know has trickled in only $25, 582,403 in box office tickets so far but it cost $120 to make!
Jen Aniston’s two latest films, The Bounty Hunter and The Switch barely broke even at the box office. Julia Roberts, used to be a shoo-in for major movie tickets but her latest Eat, Pray, Love, cost $60 million to make and only pulled in $80 million U.S.. Even worst for her future – younger female audiences hardly know who she is , and they don’t care about her. She’s spent so much time hiding from photogs and her fans, she’s evaporated her fan base.
Hollywood A-listers- the world has changed and you’ve been left behind. Take a look at Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Rob Pattinson, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Emily Watson, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, all the Glee team and The Vampire Diaries crew.
The LOVE and respect their fans and interact with them on red carpets and at fan events. Go on twitter and check out the thousands of photos these stars have taken with their fans. They thank their fans at award shows. They sign autographs. They talk about how much they love the work they are doing and how lucky they feel.
Here at Hollywoodlife.com we’ve talked to Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Nina Dobrev, Ashley Greene, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez for example, multiple times. They are friendly, enthusiastic, honest, fun and grateful for the blessings their fame and fortune have conferred upon them.
There’s not an eye-roller among them.
They understand the power of communication with their fans as well. Taylor Swift publishes photos and diaries on twitter, Kim K keeps her fans apprised of all her doings, Ian Somerhalder and Justin Bieber tweet back.
It’s a new world, traditional A-Listers! Don’t look down your noses at reality stars and TV series stars. They’ve changed the playing field and they are reaping the rewards of being accessible and down-to-earth.
Celebs who refuse to come down off their high horses and adapt to the new “friendly” world will soon find themselves as extinct as the ancient dinosaurs!
