Actress Belinda Dzattah has said although celebrities sometimes put pressure on themselves to live flamboyantly, society and some fans put too much pressure on them to do so.

The ‘Heels and Sneakers’ actress was speaking on the Class Drive on Class91.3FM on Wednesday, 6 November 2019.

She told show host Prince Benjamin that: “Sometimes, some of us (actresses) put pressure on ourselves, and some others, too, they make the society put pressure on them. Some of us put pressure on ourselves in the sense that: I’ll see what Prince is doing and I’ll want to do the same, forgetting that he’s Prince and I’m Belinda.

“And some of our fans or society, too, they expect too much from us. Someone will ask you: ‘This celebrity doesn’t go on vacation, she doesn’t do this’ and because they see actress A or Actor A going on vacation, posting pictures, they will be like:’Tthis one is richer than this’ but forgetting that sometimes the trips or whatever, maybe, it might be sponsorship. Maybe they have an airline that sponsors them to fly about. So me I don’t let that pressure get to me when I feel like I want to do it, I’ll do it, when I feel like it’s not in my desire to do it I’ll not.”

She stressed that fans expect too much from celebrities.

“…They force us, they expect too much from us because someone will see you, you’ll be on screen they expect you to do this, ‘I expect you to drive a so-so-and-so car, why are you driving a corolla? Why are you driving this, why are you driving that’, forgetting that we are human beings like them. You’ll sometimes read comments on your picture and you’ll wonder what have I done wrong.

“It’s you guys, they’ll be like have you seen her shoes, she’s a whole star, see the kind of shoes she’s wearing, the pressure comes from you guys,” the actress noted.
