The life of a celebrity is a little tougher than most of us ‘average people’ admit, but there are few things that irk us (Americans, anyway) more than rich people whining; especially during this economic crisis. Still, it’s a fact that while we can’t afford to go to Disneyland, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can’t go despite being able to afford it. There’s parity in this world after all, am I right? The poor bastards are prisoners, chained in by their outrageous fame and fortune, so says fellow star Matt Damon.

In a story by The Scoop Matt Damon waxes poetic about how easy his life is (logistically speaking) compared to some of his friends, especially Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He might have a point there; I work at Disneyland (I know, this totally invalidates my first paragraph example) and remember a night this summer when Matt Damon stood in the back of a crowd of people watching a show without being recognized by anyone but cast members. Brad Pitt, even with his best disguise, probably couldn’t get away with that.

Damon says, "I'm really lucky, because I have the best of both worlds. I do the work that I love and need, but don't need paramilitary troops to protect me when I walk out my front door." Which is fair, because Jolie reportedly has a larger standing army than the planet of Naboo. Or, uh, France, or something.

Matt Damon continued, talking about why he believes he has been able to maintain a low profile and avoid the insanity that appears to infect celebrities like the West Nile Virus.
"Ever since I found my wife (Luciana) and we had children, my whole life revolves around that. It gave my life a dramatic change in direction. I'm not as crazy as most of the other stars. I don't really know why, probably because I married a woman who isn't an actress. And we live in New York," he said. "As long as we don't show up in typical tourist spots, we can walk the streets without being noticed. New Yorkers are very cool, they don't flip out if they see me.
