Transitioning from the exposure of your personal life to the scrutiny and unwanted attention of strangers, the life of a celebrity is far from easy. In some instances, being famous may have its positive sides such as being treated specially but it is not always rosy as it attracts its own predicaments. However, amidst all its negatives, making documentaries about famous people is one of the surest ways of ensuring their stories are never forgotten.
