Celebrities are celebrities because of how much people love them. Their popularity is something that they use to gain views on everything they do. Sometimes, they do not even want the same, but that attention comes to them anyway. Hence, any new movies they make or the songs they release become famous quite fast. Many a time, an actor may make a debut for a singing career, and due to their acting popularity, they gain that same audience as their listeners. Similarly, many celebrities go ahead and write books.
They may not have much to say about anything outside their field of work, so they may not be storybooks or novels. However, many celebrities come out with self-written autobiographies (meaning that they are not ghost-written, but the stars write it themselves).
Celebrities Who Have Proved That They Can Write
Here is a list of the stars that really can write, with their publications and the psyche behind them.

“The Death of my Father” by Steve Martin, 2002
Steve Martin was known as a funny man in the Hollywood scene.

However, this indeed doesn’t seem right. Someone who made his career in comedy film and television, Steve Martin, showed the world his other side after his father passed away. He wrote an article for The New Yorker that chronicled the loss of his father and how he coped with it. It was an incredibly heartfelt, touching piece that would bring anyone to shed a tear.
