We as society still get tricked into sub consciously thinking that stars are not human. That they are so amazing, and we worship them as if they are gods who are perfect in every possible way. And more so, we wish that we could be them so that we can be worshipped as well. But the truth of the matter is, they are people just like us. Nothing really sets them apart except maybe for their looks and talents. But this article will be focusing on those big stars who had to give up the greatest piece of themselves, their own children.
