HOLLYWOOD INSIDER STRIPS AWAY THE ILLUSION AND EXPOSES THE TRUE STRUGGLES BEHIND TEEN STARS
Change always begins with one idea and one person brave enough to make a difference. Carla Hanna, author of the popular young adult Starlet Series is that person.
“I was a Santa Monica homemaker and lived the ‘privileged’ life of Hollywood A-listers,” shares Hanna. “Once I moved to suburbia, I realized what we all knew was fake in Hollywood, the rest of the world views as real.” Her biggest concern is how teens and young adults perceive the life of a Hollywood star and, wrongly, try to emulate it.
Much more than the stereotypical sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll, up-and-coming Hollywood stars face serious struggles. They are as conflicted as middle-American teens coming of age and facing the challenges of growing up.
With a rare glimpse of life inside and outside of Hollywood, Hanna can discuss:
- The psychological and moral conflicts teens face that are frequently absent in today’s Top 40 songs and shows popular with young adults
- Sex doesn’t equal maturity
- Coming of age is not about sex, it’s about taking responsibility for your actions
- God is present in Hollywood, too
- How keeping God and spirituality out of popular books and films is changing the moral judgment of Americans
- The black and white problems with 50 Shades of Grey
Carla Hanna lived in Santa Monica, CA where her children played with the children of celebrities. She mingled with plenty of nannies and a few good celebrity moms. She received her Master’s in English/Communications from Colorado State University and lives near Denver, CO with her husband and two children.
