Abstract

People have always been fascinated with celebrities – and doctors have always been willing to line up to treat them. Going back to antiquity, kings and pharaohs had their personal physicians and today’s political elites are no different. The twentieth and twenty-first centuries have also seen the rise of a new generation of gods walking among us, the “superstars.” These darlings of the paparazzi include professional athletes, musicians, artists, actors and actresses, religious icons, as well as some celebrities of dubious talent.
