Who Do You Think Is This Closeted Hollywood Actor Who Hates His Fans And Complains Of Being Only Worth $4 Million?

Who Do You Think Is This Closeted Hollywood Actor Who Hates His Fans And Complains Of Being Only Worth $4 Million?

It’s probably best that this supposed Hollywood star is choosing to remain anonymous, as his Reddit rant just oozes with entitlement and privilege.

In a post titled “[No Remorse] I dislike my fans,” an account by the name “westmailu” introduces himself by writing, “I am an actor. Well-known. A few of my movies are among the top-grossing in history. I started out as a child actor and fortunately have worked ever since.”

Then he opens the flood gates:

“I hate my fans. Appreciate them but hate them. I hate them because they hound and harass me. I am not an attention whore. I don’t tip off the paps, party, etc. I usually enjoy being by myself. I can’t even be open about being gay. What really irks me is how fans call me by this character’s name and start touching me and asking for pictures like I am one of those guys dressed like a Transformer on Hollywood/Vine. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always chat and take a picture with a fan if they are cool or for a young fan, but most people are assholes.

“I hate the way they ask me for money and think I have money. I see these sites where fans will say I am worth like $20 million. BITCH PLEASE. I am worth more like $4 million. And I don’t even live a lavish style. Far from it. I may get four movie offers ranging from $1 – 4 million. I probably take a quarter of that at the end. Most often I turn down the higher-paying movies because they will do the most damage to your career. Sometimes I won’t get any offers. I have tons of expenses. I have to pay lawyers, accountants, family, etc. Don’t even get me started on taxes. Also, if I ever become disabled or can’t work anymore, then I am fucked.

“They think that I can get them work. No I can’t. That pisses me off more than anything.

“My life is not that glam. Most famous people are not that interesting. They’re uneducated. They’re ignorant. They’re paranoid. They’re full of themselves.”

Yikes. It really is lonely up there at the top, isn’t it?

He goes on in the comments to say: “I don’t have friends. Many Hollywood people just want to party and many non-Hollywood people expect that your friendship will enrich them in some way,” adding, “can’t tell you how many times non-Hollywood ’friends’ have hit me up for money, work or contacts… I can’t even say that I am a gay guy because it will hurt my career.”

Since this clearly begs for speculation, some names like Taylor Lautner and Elijah Wood have been floated, but he could just as likely be a bored mother of four in Duluth, Minnesota.

Guess we’ll never know.

    He sounds really upset in my opinion..
    You know how people say you have it better than some other people so you shouldn’t complain.. as If your struggles or pain are less important.

    So the clues…
    He’s was child actor.
    He’s movies have been among the top grossing in history, and he still finds work till now.
    Fans refer to him by a character name.. Which means his character/top grossing movie has to be quite popular.
    Hmmmm

    So Taylor Lautner(Twilight) is a good guess. Fits the profile really well. He’s character (Jacob black)is quite popular enough for fans to refer to him by the name, and the twilight movies are somehow top grossing movies. He’s also a child actor.

    Elijah Wood (lord of the rings) also fits. Lord of the rings is hugely popular and are top grossing movies. His character Frodo is also popular enough for that kinda familiarism. But for some reason I don’t think it’d be him. Never even knew folks thought he was gay.

    I would think Shia LaBeouf. The transformers movies are top grossers. He’s a child actor. From Previous antics also seems like the most likely to say “he hates his fans”. Only red herring is no one is gonna be refering to Shia as Sam Witwicky.

    Maybe also Daniel Radcliffe (harry potter). Popular character. Child actor, top grossing movies, but then Daniel doesn’t seem like he’d hide his sexuality if he was gay. Dude is a Brit/European. And unlike the Americans they mostly don’t care about these things, they are so secure in their heterosexuality that they don’t suffer gay panic and don’t mind showing some sort of affection to the same sex…just look and James Mcvoy and Michael Fassbender and the way they are always playfully flirty with each other on their X-Men press tours.
    If Daniel were gay he’d proudly say it.

    This could also be Audu from Borno. Either way, Whoever this is, hope he finds comfort and companionship cause he really does sound lonely and Hollywood really is a brutal place for a child to grow up.

      True true true. And yes, Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t strike me as the type of actor who’d be closeted. Even as a straight actor, he’s remarkably pro-LGBT and feminist.

        I think he means Josh. It’s definitely not Liam Hemsworth as sister Miley is all up in that.
        Josh Hutcherson fits the criteria too. Child actor, albeit not too popular, got his big break with the hunger games movies.

        Peeta Mellark is also a rather popular character. Has always had gay rumours surrounding him. Even said he could see himself being with a guy.

          I follow Josh Hutcherson on IG, I don’t think its him. He likes attention alright.

      I really doubt that…. He doesn’t see a lot of work anymore

  5. I didn’t read it as entitlement. Rich, famous people are allowed to have problems. Being a celebrity doesn’t mean he has to LOVE people constantly hounding him for photos. He didn’t say he’s worth $4m in a “just $4m” way. He meant it gets annoying because people ask him for money assuming that he has lots to burn when he really doesn’t as he gets only a quarter of his earnings after bills. It’s because people can’t complain about things without being looked down upon for overlooking their privilege that they end up committing suicide.
