Celebrities live in the spotlight and their personal lives are often under threat by fans or people who may offend them. They hire armed security guards to keep them safe in any hostile environment, especially when traveling. The bodyguards are usually very good looking but the most prestigious firms only accept applicants with extensive military or law enforcement experience. They must be physically strong and have higher than average intelligence to make split second decisions in high risk situations.
Despite their attractive looks, celebrity bodyguards work hard and are on the go for 12-hour shifts. They are on their feet for the entire time and often don’t even get a chance to take a bathroom break. It’s no wonder that they have to be extremely fit and tough to survive this exhausting lifestyle.
They also have to deal with paparazzi and fans who can be very aggressive. They have to be able to understand their needs and be able to communicate with them as well as keep a distance from them to avoid any physical confrontations. The best celebrity bodyguard will tell you that advance planning is key to avoiding dangerous situations but they cannot eliminate all the risks in this high-stakes business.
