Handling stardom at a young age can be a difficult task. Just ask Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears. Meanwhile, Sarah Michelle Gellar stands out as an example of a child star who has managed her success with grace and professionalism.
Gellar, who grew up with a role on the popular TV series All My Children, claims that her busy Hollywood schedule actually steered her away from the troubles that plague so many of Tinseltown's youngsters. “You don't party when you're on a TV show. You got to bed for 10 hours and you learn your lines,” she said.
The Buffy Babe continued to say, “I never smoked and I didn't drink alcohol until I was 21." And Gellar, who's married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr, doesn't understand why anyone would want to have to deal with living their life in the public eye.
“I don't understand the need to give in to excess and lead your life in public. It doesn't make sense to me,” she said, adding, “I look at all these kids getting fame and attention now and they're just not equipped to deal with success at such a young age.”
