That celebrity that you keep your eye on. You read about her in People magazine and
stalk follow her on Instagram.
She seems to have her shit together and like she’s truly enjoying life. She’s hot as hell, smart as a whip and downright fascinating.
Maybe you even see a little of yourself in her.
My celeb girl crushes are Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore.
I love how smart, cause-oriented and downright gorgeous these two are. I admire all that they’ve accomplished in life. Those two have done some badass stuff.
Psychology tells us that one of the reasons that we pay attention to celebrities is so that we might become more like them.
It makes sense, right?
I’d love to be more like Jen and Drew, so naturally I’m drawn to them.
Celebs that I don’t really want to be like (pick a Kardashian), I have no interest in whatsoever.
So we watch them and model them for inspiration to become the kind of person that we want to be.
Research also says that the other reason we gravitate toward celebrities is for an escape.
It’s nice to escape a world of laundry, deadlines and grocery shopping to see Tina Fey glammed up on the red carpet or Kate Hudson rockin’ her fierce mom body on a picturesque vacation.
I also love to see people in the spotlight being real – and that’s probably why I gravitate toward people like Amy Schumer, too. She’s not always glammed up and “camera ready.” It’s an additional reminder that, at the core, we’re all the same.
We can learn a lot from celebs.
They’re human and imperfect, of course. And they’ve had some pretty incredible experiences in life just by nature of being famous.
Because we can learn from their experiences, I gathered little bits of awesome life advice from a bunch of celebrities and put them in a downloadable PDF for you. You’re gonna love what Tina Fey has to say about motherhood and what Goldie Hawn says about friendship.
