Is it okay to have a crush on a celebrity even when you are quite old? My sister is in her 50's and is obsessed with James Franco. She has flown around the world to go to his film premieres and art shows! I am a fan of certain stars myself but I wouldn't go to these extremes. I suppose it depends on your dedication though!

I would definitely say my sister is obsessed. She buys all his art works and books and things.

@Julie555 How did you guess, ha, ha! No, she is not. I suggested joining dating sites but she says no man matches up to her 'dream' celebrity men.

I think there is no harm, crush can happen any age, it's normal. But as you said, i won't go to extremes as well.

it can look not okay for others bcoz she is spending money and time for a person whom she will never get most probably.But for her these things may be giving her emmense pleasure and satisfaction.

I do wonder if she ever thinks she might have a chance of romance with him but she seems quite happy following her obsession too.

@redurnet i guess she is living the dream of getting a chance of romance with me. Yeah it's just obsession. I guess u should try to make her understand the reality bcoz if her dream will not come true den she will get very upset.

I don't think it's just a simple crush! I have had celebrity crushes but were never obsessed with anybody to do extreme things.

Some of our family think she's a bit odd for taking it so far!

I think you could be right! He is a bit of an unusual person too.
