Lost star Holloway hates fame

josh_hollowya.jpgJosh Holloway, 39, who plays con man James “Sawyer” Ford on the hit ABC drama Lost, isn’t thrilled with the fame aspect of being a succesful actor on a hit series. He told Company magazine: “The whole sex symbol thing is really strange. I wouldn’t wish it on anybody. I appreciate the opportunity to work, the cash it gives you, and other things it provides are wonderful. But the celebrity thing… I don’t like attention. Like anybody, it’s impossible not to feel self-conscious if someone’s looking at you all the time, everywhere you go.”

    well, he doesn’t seem like a bask in the limelight type of guy, so this is no surprise to hear, and yes, he is very hot, and I love his character on Lost.

    just bought Season 4 last night so I will catch up real fast…

    JACKASS!!

    SHOULD HAVE PLAYED GAMBIT IN WOLVERINE , HE WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT. IF YOUR AN ACTOR ON A TV SHOW YOU SHOULD EXPECT PEOPLE TO RECOGNIZE YOU , GET OVER IT AND LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT.
