"In contrast to the film star, the television personality is surrounded by other messages that are unconnected to the narrative focus of his or her program. These disjunctures are normalised into the flow of television. The film star’s filmic text is relatively integral, uninterrupted by other messages, other images. The film star maintains an integrity of being; the television star is pulled out of an aesthetic into the bare economics of production and consumption. Whereas the film celebrity maintains an aura of distinction, the television celebrity’s aura of distinction is continually broken by the myriad messages and products that surround any television text."
