To pry into celebrity's lives suggests they should be saintly at all times. Fair?

Let me first start by saying this: celebrities do not owe us, the public nor press, anything. To “expect intrusions” suggests that it is natural and therefore justified to have the press interrupt any aspect of their lives as they see fit. We now live in a culture where privacy can be bought - and somehow simply being on TV gives the viewer the entitlement of voyeurism into a celebrity’s personal life. This should not be the case. Without sounding Hollywood dramatic, actors are people too. What goes on in their personal lives, which includes realms of family, relationships and home life, is for them to keep and to share as and when they wish. I am sure that nowhere in their job titles does it say that they should be subjected to daily scrutiny by the papz.
