I watched the new documentary on Val Kilmer a couple weeks ago and while it was certainly well done, I couldn't help but wonder why does our culture lionize actors? Is it simply because they have a lot of money and they're often good looking. Today on the Spiritual Spiral, I welcome actor and writer, Polly Humphreys, back to the show. Polly and I talk about the new documentary on Val Kilmer and we try and figure out where our culture's love for actors comes from. We talk about our innate need to look up to someone and maybe it's sexier and more fun to idolize Keanu Reeves instead of a family member. We talk about the media's role in creating a cultural love for actors and we also talk about the pain that comes from being an artist in this uber distracted world.
