“I’ve had a million meetings in my acting career, and I had no idea that this would be the one that would change my life forever. I walked into the room, and there was Rob . . . in the flesh.”
Actress Lizzie Pepper was America’s Girl Next Door and her marriage to Hollywood mega-star Rob Mars was tabloid gold—a whirlwind romance and an elaborate celebrity-studded wedding landed them on the cover of every celebrity weekly. But fame, beauty, and wealth weren’t enough to keep their marriage together. Hollywood’s “It” couple are over—and now Lizzie is going to tell her side of the story.
Celebrity ghostwriter Hilary Liftin chronicles the tabloids’ favorite marriage as Lizzie Pepper realizes that, when the curtain falls, her romance isn’t what she and everyone else thought. From her lonely holidays in sumptuous villas to her husband’s deep commitment to a disconcertingly repressive mind-body group, Lizzie reveals a side of fame that her fans never get to see. Full of twists and turns, Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper is a breathless journey to the heights of Hollywood power and royalty and a life in the spotlight that is nearly impossible to escape.

It picked up a bit in the last fourth of the novel. But I found the author TOO empatheic for the main characters. The protagonist changed her mind about things every other paragraph. And, sorry, it’s hard to feel too sorry for people who are famous and ultrarich. Disappointed.
This book was very slow. She went on and on saying the same things about her issues. I was interested at the beginning but quickly lost interest
This is such a terrific story that eerily rings true for me but...
It’s not my place to name names. But call me Captain Obvious when I say, Thank You Lizzie. You’ve dispelled rumors and shedded some light on a very curious end to a infamous romance. No doubt this is a believable “biography”. And you’ve given it heart, purpose, soul and meaning.
