Celebrities aren’t all just spawns of nepotism. Many of them, like the rest of us, had to work extremely hard to get to where they are today. And scrapping in Hollywood is no walk in the park. In many cases, these celebrities took massive risks and monetary hits for fame’s sake.
This rise from the doldrums of normality is more respectable, considering these stars achieved success based on talent and merit, not just their name. And they’re darn good at what they do, that’s for sure. These are the most famous and successful celebrities who rose from nothing.
