Celebrity can be so hard. But a handful of young stars have bravely decided that -- in spite of all the pesky money, prestige, awards, fans, and VIP treatment -- they will endure the struggles of the fame they worked so hard to attain. But they don't have to like it. Here are 10 stars who seem totally over being stars.
10. Hayden "Tween Recluse" Panettiere: As a precocious teen star, it's a daily trial dealing with the burden of fame. So tough, in fact, that Hayden has decided to hide out completely. Apparently. She once said, "I don't ever go out.... I stay at home. I go from garage to garage, and keep myself out of sight... It really has a major impact on your life. This business is very intrusive." Less, of course, the occasional trip to paparazzi-ridden hot spot Katsuya and chilling on a yacht in Cannes. But that's like, you know, the fun stuff.
