Ivan: I would say that I am not the person to ask about fame because I am not "famous". But, I would say that the experiences I've had so far haven't been so bad. People look at you differently, and it is weird to see yourself in a magazine. It's kinda weird when people recognize you as well. I get a lot of "Where do I know you from? I know I know you". But overall, I have some good people around me, and that really helps.
