Famous People Live Shorter Lives, Says Study

779 ratings | 34565 views
"Fame may come truly come at a dear price -- a shorter lifespan. Researchers have found that people in performance-related careers who became famous died earlier than those who became famous in other career fields."* Does fame...kill? According to a recent study, actors, singers, musicians, dancers, and athletes all have shorter lifespans than non-famous people. What are the common factors? Cenk Uygur and Gina Grad (Pretty Good Podcast) discuss.

im not a hughe fan of the female co host in this or other vids

No, I'm saying how you handle stress and genetics are the most important factor. That was just an example that I used to support the argument. You can live as healthy as you want to, but if you can't handle stress and/or you have bad genes, you aren't going to live much past 80.

So REALITY is wrong? Americas standard of science education is around 53 in the world this explains so much about this comment. Look you cant cherry pick, one example does NOT constitute proof you crazy human. Take a random sample of hundreds of thousands and THEN draw conclusions... sheez...

The report didn't say that though, did it. Business people live longer than everyone else.

Some of these stars in the entertainment industry drive themselves to exhaustion in their quest for recognition and glory so i imagine it takes a tremendous toll in their later years . You read about someone training on an intense level for 6 or so months to prepare for a role and then they burn the candle even harder when filming starts . Sleep deprivation, drugs to keep them awake, drugs to make them sleep, there is a price to pay for ambition

Smoking doesn't kill everyone, the oldest person ever, Jeanne Calment (1875-1997) smoked from when she was 21 (1896) to 119 (1994). I think it really has to do with how you handle stress, and there can be a lot more stress when you are a celebrity.

I thought this would be a bigger difference than like 1 year or so haha.

brokenyard (6 years ago)
I dispute the premise of her having too many pancakes anyway.
Jezebel R (6 years ago)
... people are def chain smokers still... you guys really need a youthful voice at tyt. Like young. I'm talking 18-20 so you can get some insight
brokenyard (6 years ago)
Yeah they said that with absolutely no factual basis, just like "Come on, it happens man." Yeah, but not on that scale.

Cenk is really good at containing himself if you know what I mean ;) LOL
Mapleseed (6 years ago)
That would make sense because reclusive people are exposed to less dangers than non-reclusive people.

Dem tits though
smokydave (6 years ago)
performers often work nights and sleep during the day, which is really bad for your system... and then there's the drugs and alchohol.
Yes, but he is also in a way on the businessman side of the equation. Hugh is a man, and even today people are easier on men than women. Hence it is cool to be a bachelor in your eighties if you are a man like Hugh, but women get called old cat lady if they were single at 80 and owned a cat.

I gaurentee the reason for the lower death expectancy is drug addiction. How many instances of young celebs dying from over doses, etc?

I'm thinking that guys like Tupac and James Dean pull the average down more than celebrities living shorter times in general.

How long would have George Burns lasted had he not been in showbiz? Could have he literally been as old as the Devil?

labelfree904 (6 years ago)
probably not, it was more reference to having very large arms and upper body muscles. Another element of why is because men don't normally stretch as much, which is pretty important for basic flexibility when trying to built muscle.

shawn jackson (6 years ago)
cenk is a very bright and educated man but like us all is prone to wild accusations and assumtptions. no most of our athletes arent juicing. football players yes but not steriods thats old school they use hgh now. but other sports steriods doest really help much other than base ball wrestling etc
shawn jackson (6 years ago)
ummm dying young adds to the legend so this study is invaild. if marilin monroe would have lived longer she wouldve been a liv tyler type.

Another one of those studies, that falls in the "No shit, Sherlock.." category - like studying if men who regularily look at female breasts are more happy than men who don't. OF COOOOURSE!

I remember one Vsauce episode where they presented studies that indicate that people who often leave their house have shorter lives on average. In other words, going outside and doing stuff puts you at a higher risk than staying at home, statistically speaking.

i wouldn't say all fighters we see on tv is on steroids.. When you work out a lot and have a very high animal protein diet, you produce more testosterone (very similar to anabolic steroids) and it produces very similar effects such as more acne due to higher oil production in the skin. Also, that in combination with being less thorough when cleansing. When your upper body is ridiculously big, it's very difficult to reach your back.

Ralphie May is a whale. This chick is not.
thundavolt (6 years ago)
Famous buffoons die younger. It you like isn't centered around being a buffoon as a living then you're alright that an the fact that no one ever calls out celebs. their obsessive fans always jump to their defense and after they die we have to suffer all these claims that the punk is still alive.
