Melissa Joan Hart has always come across as so totally grounded to me. But maybe that is because she didn’t grow up famous in this day and age. Back when she was a child star on Clarissa (what a GOOD show, who’s with me?!).
She says that there’s no way she’d want to be a teen star right now.
“I would not want to be a teenager in this day and age because of how much access the public has to people’s lives. There’s no mystery left, there’s no hiding anything.
“When you have Twitter and you can put things directly out to the world, it’s dangerous. Especially when you’re a teenager or in your early 20s and you think you’re invincible and you think everything you have to say is brilliant. It’s a tricky world right now.”
Melissa particularly sympathizes with Miley Cyrus.
“Miley Cyrus and all of them, they’ve got a lot to handle. And we all go through it. We pretty much all went through a crazy period in our teens and 20s, but it wasn’t on record.”
Melissa is right. On one hand I love that Twitter lets celebrities connect directly with their fans. On the other hand, it definitely makes me realize that some people just do not have a filter. Or very much common sense.
