There’s a young side of me that says, “man it must completely suck to be the sibling of a celebrity.” That’s obviously assuming the sibling isn’t famous. It’s like your whole life you’re known as “X person’s brother or sister.” Your sibling gets all the spotlight and you just look like the leftover crap of the family. But there’s also the older, more mature side of me that says, “this is awesome.” Because in reality, you’re your own person. You don’t have to deal with stardom or any of that crap.
And yet you get many of the benefits that your celebrity siblings have (assuming you are tight with them). As you get older you realize that being behind the scenes isn’t all that bad. In fact it’s probably better. I can’t imagine how awful dealing with Hollywood garbage must be. Yeah, you’re a millionaire and lead this amazing life but it’s only so long until that catches up with you, you get a divorce, and wind up pretty unhappy.
