Seems to me it's much the same for sports people. Playing sport isn't just about running a ball up and down a paddock. Whether they like it or not they are a role model. It's just whether they are a positive one or one that you threaten your kid about turning out like.

Being famous - IMHO - is a bit like being a copper. The vast majority of coppers join the force for their reasons of self. A challenge, an opportunity, job security, family, whatever, but initially the reasons are about them and what they get from it. The SIDE EFFECT of being a copper is the responsibility that comes with it. You don't sign up for that, but there it is. You HAVE to live by example or find yourself out of a job and in the media receiving negative attention.
