Celebrities—film starts, cricketers, footballers, musicians, dancers, comedians—they have the limelight on them always. Red-carpet walks, parties, award functions, even at Starbucks they always look gorgeous. They have those perfect make-up, trendiest fashion outfits, manicured nails and what not. They are always ready for the camera. We have only seen there smiling and happy faces (sometimes angry faces at the paparazzi) on camera. But behind these smiling faces they are not just covering their wrinkles and dark spots. They try to conceal their pain as well.
