At one time in history, most people could only know celebrities through their appearances on stage, screen, or radio. In time, they became slightly more accessible as newspapers and magazines detailed their lives and activities, sometimes through a creepy and somewhat unwanted lens.

LG Hires Jason Statham To Sell The G5 And (Presumably) Punch Samsung Phones To Death In New Commercials

You've heard of Jason Statham, right? That generically rugged-looking guy who shows up in about 50% of the action B-movies in any given summer to sound British and punch people in the face?
