I think it's ridiculous how the gutter press sneer at a celeb who gets a "real" job like building or shop work when they attack people who claim benefits of any kind of a daily basis. People just can't win.
I really admire former actors/singers/etc who aren't afraid of the real world and aren't afraid to return to it. Happens far too rarely now.
I agree - I mean, what is the ex celeb supposed to do? Starve?
