Of course, about the LA people, that is a generalization. And I mean it for many people in my age group (19 yo), who are usually insecure and put on a front to make people like them. Of course not everyone is like this, but I have found many people my age in Beverly Hills and Hollywood to be real superficial, and lacking serious depth to their persona. Well it's there, but I'd have to dig real hard to find it in them, and why waste the effort!
