    Paula: You are very lucky, Catherine. You are a celebrity and your image on the cover of the most prestigious beauty magazines.

    Catherine: My life is not exactly what you think it is. I feel like I've lost my freedom. Even in my everyday life, I to be who my fans want me to be. When I on a TV show, I how to answer the journalists, I what to say or what to do and so, there's little space for me to be authentic.

    Paula: But there also some advantages of being a celebrity, aren't there?

    Catherine: Oh yes, of course! For every shot, I the opportunity of wearing clothes that most people can only dream about and moreover, in one contract deal, I an amount of money that most people would not make in their lifetime.

    And when the show finished, I went back to my hotel and I very lonely.

    Paula : But you like a princess, weren't you?

    Catherine: Paula, you should stop considering only the glamorous side of fame ! Don't you know that in many magazines, my private life ? Wherever I go, I by paparazzi. I am harassed by photographers in my every move.

    I by my appearance, in my everyday activities, when I grab the paper or even when I simply blow my nose and this is hugely damaging to me. I like an object.

    Paula : So, these paparazzi your private life, didn't they?

    Catherine: Of course, and I my lost anonymity. You should understand, Paula, that I'd like to for who I am really and not for what I to be.
