The price of fame can be a heavy one. Is the price you pay worth it? Consider that you really have no privacy. You can’t really do anything unless special arrangements are made. The media prints whatever you say. They report whatever you do. They know what you buy, which movies you see, you name it. If I go to a public library, they print the titles of the books I check out. In Florida once, they printed my whole schedule in the paper. Everything I did from ten in the morning until six at night. ‘After he did this, he did that, and after he did that, he went there, then he went door to door, and then he…’

I remember thinking to myself, 'What if I were trying to do something that I didn’t happen to want reported in the paper?’ All of this is the price of fame.
