I seem to recall his saying in an interview that he is glad that he did not achieve this level of fame when he was younger. That he had that insight suggests he may well be aware of the phenomenon you describe.
"I have lived many ages of men, Steven. Centuries without end. I have seen many great men, and known countless honors. But the greatest honor of this ancient and tired soul has been the privilege of fighting beside you, and calling you my friend."
