From Terminator to Governator

Gaining celebrity status can come from many different paths.  At its basic form, no matter the path, all celebrities are public figures.  From their celebrity status comes any easier road to expanding their celebrity.  One example that comes to mind is Arnold Schwarzenegger and his transition from the silver screen to the public office.

“Rather than being celebrated because they occupy positions of prestige, they occupy positions of prestige because they are celebrated.” – C. Wright Mills
