Celebrity inspirations are very common these days. The glamorous world of fashion and movies tend to attract most of us. And it is not too surprising to come across someone whom you practically worship.
However, aside from inspiring us with all sorts of fashion ideas and dresses, some celebrities inspire us in many other ways.
These celebrity inspirations are not glamorous at all. Instead, they show us the hard side of life. The loss, the disappointment and the hard work and sacrifice they had to undergo to reach where they are today.
Keeping that in mind, here is a list of 5 celebrity inspirations who managed to reach out to me as an individual.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard of Oprah Winfrey. A list of celebrity inspirations is incomplete without her.
One of the few stories that bring tears to my eyes, Oprah went through a lot of hardships as a child. Other than being a constant victim of racism, Oprah was a sexual abuse survivor which resulted in her getting pregnant at the age of 14 years.
However, Oprah survived. She fought and persevered and won. Today, she is a successful businesswoman and one of the most beloved celebrities in the world.
I fell in love with the entire cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and that is how I learnt about Terry Crews. There are very few people who come out and speak up against sexual harassment. This number decreases when it comes to talking about male sexual harassment.
Terry Crews is one such brave celebrity who came up and spoke against his own experience of sexual abuse.
It takes a lot of courage to do that and he allegedly lost his part in the fourth instalment of The Expendables because he spoke up against a certain well-known person in the industry.
Another person without whom the celebrity inspirations list is incomplete. Keanu Reeves is said to possibly be the only celebrity who has no haters and frankly, we get it. Growing up, Keanu Reeves did not have the smoothest of lives.
He never saw his father his mother had a tough time raising her kids. He lost his close friend, fellow actor River Phoenix.
His baby was stillborn and his partner died in a tragic accident. And yet, he is one of the most down-to-earth people who encouraged people to move on with their lives.
The writer who gifted the world the Harry Potter franchise had to face quite a few hardships on her way to stardom.
Her marriage fell apart, her first book was rejected numerous times by publishers and she was almost out of money with a baby in her arms. JK Rowling is an inspiration in the truest sense of the world.
An embodiment of ‘never give up’, we all can learn a little something from this JK Rowling. No matter how bad the situation gets, we all must remember that we are strong and capable and will find a way out.
Emily Blunt has been a favourite for me ever since I saw her in The Devil Wears Prada. I was extremely fascinated by her eloquent speech and lively personality.
That is why imagine my shock when I came to know that she had to overcome a serious case of stutter at the age of 14.
According to her, she was a smart student who had a lot to say but couldn’t. As it turns out, she started acting on stage and practising speaking in different accents. She kept going and never gave up. This finally made her lose her stutter.
That is all for now guys. Let us know about your celebrity inspirations in the comments section.
And remember, hard work beats talent when talent does not beat hard work. So keep working hard towards your goals diligently and never give up.
