In the Hollywood world, appearance matters. Sometimes, beauty standards in the movie industry are unreasonably high, and a lot of celebrities have spoken out about this, trying to push the stereotypes. At the same time, there are a lot of stars who don’t obey the outdated rules and have successful careers without changing their unusual features to look like everyone else, proving that talent is more important.
Most of us probably know that there are so-called A-listers among actors. These are the most popular celebrities whose talent has been recognized all over the world. They have appeared in multiple big-budget blockbusters and won various awards. However, there are some viewers who believe that the achievements of these actors are totally overrated.
Aside from their talent, some famous women are known for their exquisite beauty and gracefully feminine features. However, we wonder if these celebrities would still be considered as conventionally attractive if they were men. Thanks to modern technology, we were able to achieve this transformation, and the results we obtained left us astonished.
The profession of a movie actor isn’t an easy one. And even though some people can’t live without acting and accept roles in movies and series almost until the end of their lives, there are those who decide to quit while they’re at the peak of their careers. And today, we would like to talk about the actors who’ve made this choice.
Looks have always been very important in our world and especially in show business. Having talent is necessary, but sometimes beauty is the most important factor, since talent can be cultivated if needed. And for decades now, People magazine has been announcing the sexiest man alive every single year. There may have been decades since some of these men have won this title, but their looks are still up there.
There are many actors that started their careers as kids and grow up both in age and talent. Haley Joel Osment, for instance, was known for his role in The Sixth Sense. He later appeared in other films such as A.I Artificial Intelligence, and Pay It Forward. Let’s see how the actors we remember from our youth have matured as they’ve grown older.
It is nearly impossible for all of us to agree on one famous person whom we’d consider as the most beautiful, because we all have our different tastes when it comes to beauty. However, when online people came together to vote for the most beautiful women of recent times, 20 women got the highest votes, and we want to see if you’d agree with the result.
Time flies and it left the 80’s way behind, 40 years to be exact. And as unbelievable as it may sound, some of the celebrities who rose to fame then or in the 90’s are still in the entertainment business today. Besides showing us that talent has no expiration date, we also get to appreciate how they gracefully age.
Today’s world is increasingly breaking stereotypes, and fashion is no exception. An example of this is the model Rosa Saito, who has managed to share her talent and beauty worldwide, regardless of age. Her success story is something worth sharing and admiring.
Movies have delighted us with love stories for a long time. We may think that what happens in them only takes place on the big screen, but there are times when reality surpasses fiction, as in the case of Julie Andrews. Her love story with her husband, film director Blake Edwards, seems straight out of a romantic comedy.
We should learn from celebs when it comes to posing correctly. The correct bend of the head, a slight smile, relaxed shoulders — all these can hide wrinkles, bags under the eyes, or an uneven face shape. However, even those who have life-long experience doing the right pose on the red carpet are not safe from an unsuccessful shot. We found photos of celebs where the wrong lighting and angle spoiled the whole pic.
Many of those in the spotlight divide their time between show business and being a parent. For the fans, it’s easy to feel curious about whether celebrity children will look like their famous mom or dad, or if they’ll inherit their talent. And often, when celebrities share family photos on social media or take them to social events, people realize just how time flies.
When directors hire older actors to portray young characters, they obviously do it for their talent. Makeup doesn’t always help hide wrinkles and age spots. But the amazing acting helps viewers suppress their disbelief and enjoy the story.
It is believed that in order to be successful, we need to be talented, hardworking, and lucky. If you lack one of these qualities, the other two can compensate, but as it turns out, those success ingredients aren’t equally important. Many studies have shown that it’s common for 20% of people in a group or the whole company to account for 80–98% of performance, so talent is what matters the most.
When asked if they are creative, people in different countries gave varying answers. In the US, more than half of all respondents (52%) think they have this quality, whereas in Japan, only 19% agreed. And even though specialists believe that true creativity is rare, our today’s heroes proved that determination and talent can help you achieve incredible results.
One of the most well-known fashion designers ever, Karl Lagerfeld never got a specific education in this field. The future visionary left home when he was only 14 and entered a coat design competition in Paris. After winning, he was hired as an assistant and began his amazing career from there. This goes to show that talent can shine bright in any situation.
Prices for nail manicures can cost anywhere from $10 — $135 depending on where you choose to go. And you should include the tip that usually you have to give, which increases the price even more. This is maybe why some women choose to do their own nails and save themselves some money. And while you would expect something simple, they often manage to create something truly spectacular.
The daughters and sons of our idols often inherit more than just talent from their parents: their looks. It’s always fascinating to put photos side-by-side of a celebrity and their offspring and see just how alike they are in appearance. Some genes are so strong though that a quick glance will tell you who they take up after at that age.
For some people being creative is second nature. They’re able to look at something ordinary and know exactly what could be done to elevate it to a masterpiece. Whether it’s creating unique strawberry-themed hair or illustrating dark clothes with mind-blowing bleach paintings, the sky’s the limit for these artistic minds.
People who are good at arts and crafts know that aside from talent, you also have to be patient and keep practicing to achieve great results. Those who spent hours upon hours perfecting their artwork can amaze everyone they know with such unbelievable things as knitting an entire wedding dress or crafting a beautiful lamp out of a wasp nest.
Makeup is the universal tool when you want to change something in your appearance without a permanent effect. It could be making a few blemishes disappear or drawing on completely new features — it’s all up to you. And like in other artistic spheres, there are some very talented people who achieve true mastery.
