The main character's obsession with Tobey Maguire reminded me of American culture and how we hold celebrities to a god like standard. I agree, we all have that idol that we want to be like and sometimes it can become obsessive. We hold famous people up on a pedestal when in reality they are normal people who have flaws. I believe the author is poking fun at the way people obsessive over people they deem as perfect human beings. In reality we are the same.
