While it’s true that things go at a faster pace and an exaggerated style in showbiz, it’s not always that way. Yes, often people get married 6 months or less after meeting each other, but the only reason that doesn’t happen more often in “average life” is that…well, Hollywood people don’t have to worry as much about how much a wedding (and a divorce) costs. When you have that much money, you don’t have to put as much thought into stuff. Sad, but true.
But as Shagnasty says, there are plenty of people in Hollywood who are stable, down-to-earth types. You hear about them when they do interviews to promote their latest project, and then they disppear off the map. William H. Macy is a good example, as are Will Farrell and Tom Hanks. They get no media coverage as far as their private life goes, because they basically live by the same moral code as the rest of us.
