16 Times Celebs Made Out-Of-Touch Comments About Their Work And "Normal People" Jobs
Discussing the challenges of having a public-facing career, Alicia Vikander said, "Sometimes, you go through things that are tough in life, and if you have an office job, you can step away for a bit. But there are times that myself or colleagues have been through something and, well, I can't understand how they went on to the red carpet afterwards."by Kristen Harris
Not all jobs are created equally, and it's an unfortunate part of reality that the "cushiest" jobs also seem to be among the best paid. Sometimes, wealthy actors, athletes, and entertainers appear to forget that other people aren't living the same privileged lifestyle they've been afforded.
Here are 16 times celebs made out-of-touch comments about their work and "normal" jobs:
1. Sydney Sweeney faced backlash for telling Variety that she had to "fight" for her role in Reality like other actors. She said, "I had to audition for it. I had to put myself on tape and send in my audition just like everybody else."

She continued, "It was the same for White Lotus. They didn’t think that I was right for White Lotus, because I did Euphoria. So, I put myself on tape, I auditioned for White Lotus just like everybody else and had a call back like everybody else. I could get offered roles that are similar to the ones that I've played, but the ones that are different, the ones that surprise people that I do, are the ones that I usually have to fight for."
On Twitter, people mocked her for balking at having to audition like most actors.
By "fight", she means "apply".— Harry Barnes
