It’s a topic of discussion among the most celebrated of actors these days: What the hell makes reality stars so fascinating and why do we bestow gifts of fame and fortune on them?
Tony-nominated actress Edie Falco spoke to New York Magazine‘s Vulture about this very topic. Falco, who plays Bananas Shaughnessy on the Broadway play House Of Blue Leaves alongside Ben Stiller, has a little something to say about reality stars like Kim Kardashian.
“No, not a big fan. Like, forgive me, I don’t know if you’re friends with her — but who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff. I mean, if there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something — but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening.
Kardashian is across the pond in London at the moment, unaware of Falco’s remarks. The newly engaged ladybug promoted her self-titled fragrance at Debenham”s department store.
