Most of us have a few skeletons in our closet or things that are a little embarrassing that we’d rather not share.
Even celebrities have things about their past they probably wish the world didn’t know about.
We all know that J.T. brought “sexy back”, but way before that he in beauty pageants. Justin was actually named Pre-Teen Mr. American in 1991 at the age of 10-years-old. In 1992, he was the first male to win America’s Universal Charm pageant.
James Earl Jones
He’s has one of the most well-known voices, known for voicing Mufasa in “The Lion King” and Darth Vader in “Star Wars”. The actor reveals he wasn’t always so sure of himself and suffered from a severe stutter. In fact, he was almost mute for eight years as a child. Pretty amazing and what a soothing voice!
Most of us recognize James Lipton as the host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio”, where he is very charming and interviews many celebrities. But have you ever heard that Lipton used to be a pimp in France? No joke! He became friends with a whore and soon became a pimp for a year. Wow!
Christian Bale, who played Batman and was nominated for an Oscar for “American Hustle”, had a mother that was a circus clown. In fact, Bale’s first kiss was with an acrobat named Barta.
Leighton Meester, most known for her role on “Gossip Girl”, looks like a very classy girl. But her mother actually welcomed Leighton while she was in prison for smuggling drugs. Her mother nursed her in a halfway house before being sent back to jail. Meester was then raised by her grandmother.
Comedic actor Bill Murray celebrated his 20th birthday by getting arrested at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Murray was waiting to board a plane to Denver when he joked with another passenger about having two bombs in his luggage.
A ticket agent tattled to federal agents, who searched Murray’s luggage and found five bricks of weed (ten pounds). Bill was charged with possession of cannabis and was sentenced to five years probation on the misdemeanor conviction.
George Clooney developed Bell’s Palsy for a year during Middle School, a debilitating condition that partially paralyzes the face. Gorgeous George said of the experience, “That was the worst time of my life. You know how cruel kids can be. I was mocked and taunted, but the experience made me stronger.”
Demi Moore was cross-eyed as a child and wore an eye patch until her vision was corrected after two operations.
We hope you enjoyed some of these interesting facts we dug up on celebrities, which really aren’t so different from us “regular people” at all!
