Most Popular Celebrities Are Not Geniuses
The majority of popular celebs are not geniuses. They have many admirers because they are funny, charming or both. They just happen to be famous. That does not necessarily mean that you will like their movies or their music. It just means that a lot of people do.
Some celebrities are so genius that even their greatest fans don’t believe that they are actually as smart as they seem. This is especially true of scientists and mathematicians. Their genius transcends space and time, and their fans have created a theory that maybe they don’t exist at all. This theory has become known as the Paradox of Fame.
Here are seven famous people and the theories that exist about them.
The most recent film by director Tom Hooper is The King’s Speech. It’s the story of King George VI of Great Britain, who had to overcome his fears about speaking in public to conquer his paralyzing anxiety. In the film, Pattinson plays the young king, whose parents had no interest in the throne and forced him to learn how to speak and behave like a king. The film explores the tension between the public persona of a monarch (Pattinson) and the private man behind the scenes (Colin Firth). It’s a unique perspective on a king’s life and times, one that is both funny and heartwrenching. Although the film doesn’t come out until March, you can draw a picture of it now.
The most famous living actor is probably also the richest. He made his money in lots of ways, not just acting, but also through his production company, Appian Way, which finances and co-produces films. The company has been incredibly successful, continuing to make profits even after his acting career took off. His latest film is the drama The Revenant, based on the 18th century novel of the same name by Russian author, Leo Tolstoy. Most of the film was shot in Canada, using practical effects and the help of some computer graphics to create the fierce creatures that roam the wilderness. The trailer for The Revenant is brutal. It shows scenes of DiCaprio freezing to death, surrounded by his enemies as well as animals, with only a wooden club as defense. Yikes.
Another great actor-turned-producer, Pitt has co-founded production company, Plan B. It’s an independent company, which handles the financing, mentoring and marketing for film and TV projects. Plan B has a very eclectic mix of projects, ranging from documentaries to dramas and comedies. You may have seen some of the films produced by Plan B, such as Inglourious Basterds, The Darndest Thing or Our Souls At Night. Pitt is also one of the more fashionable and affluent stars. He rarely goes on tour without a full complement of bodyguards who keep an eye out for any potential paparazzi. The actor-turned-director also spends a large amount of his time supporting animal welfare causes, especially ones related to seals. In 2012, he began a campaign to protect the gray seal, a relative of the Weddell seal, from being hunted to extinction. It’s a noble cause. He also donates a lot of money to environmental and wildlife charities. If you want to draw a picture of Brad Pitt, you can find many photos on the web, but don’t cheat and use a stock image. Make your own drawing from life! You’ll need a piece of cardboard, a pencil, a bit of eraser and patience.
The last movie you’ll see before we dive into the paradox of fame is the most recent film by director James Bond, Spectre. The new film is an interesting mix of action and humor. It even features a moment of levity from 007 himself. If you thought that 2015’s Spectre was a hilarious movie, then you’ll love 2018’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. It’s a zany, modern take on the classic spy story. The film features an incredible ensemble cast, led by Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as the title characters and Jon Hamm as the wily mentor, K. The trailer is goofy, exciting and nostalgic, mixing live action scenes with animation and 1960’s television show clips, which really make this world of espionage come to life. While you’re waiting for the DVD to arrive in the mail, you can follow the adventures of Tony, a super-spy trying to stop [Title]: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. from destroying the world.

One of the greatest living actresses, Streep is also one of the most accessible. She rarely plays supporting or even funny roles. The majority of her on-screen characters are highly developed and nuanced, which is why she’s been able to stay relevant for seven decades. She’s the last surviving member of the so-called “Greatest Generation,” having been born in the last year of World War II. In 2017, she received a special award from the British Film Institute, which is named for her. It’s called the BFI Greatest Living Artist Award. To this day, she still attends most of the award ceremonies, even when they’re not named after her. If you want to draw a picture of Meryl Streep, all you need is a newspaper and a ballpoint pen. Otherwise, you’ll need a computer with a Wacom tablet.
The American singer-songwriter and actress is best known for her trademark wide-brimmed white hats. She had a successful singing career before transitioning into film. Her most iconic performance was in the 1966 film How to Make an American Quilt. It was a role that won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Since then, she’s regularly appeared in film and television. Her latest film is The Guernsey Kid. In it, she plays a famous New York City socialite who takes in a teenage boy, Jason, who is hiding from the law. While you’re waiting for the DVD to arrive in the mail, you can follow the adventures of the charming and quirky Jason, whose dream is to play guitar for Meryl Streep. Thanks for reading!
Tommy Lee Jones
Jones is the only actor to have won an Oscar, a Tony and a Grammy. He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1989’s A Better Man. This year, he’s nominated for another Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the upcoming film, The Farewell. Jones is also a respected film director and producer. He was the co-producer, co-writer and co-director of the 2017 drama, The Shape of Water, which won Best Picture at this year’s Oscars. Many of the scenes in the movie were based on real-life research, including interviews with disabled people and those who work with them. To this day, Jones is dedicated to improving the lives of others, especially the disabled. If you want to draw a picture of Tommy Lee Jones, all you need is a newspaper and a ballpoint pen. Otherwise, you’ll need a computer with a Wacom tablet.
The Hong Kong-born actor and martial artist has been acting for over five decades. He’s achieved fame and recognition worldwide but remains popular in his home country, where people still recognize him on the street. It’s not just his native country, either. Chan has traveled the world, appearing in films that were partly set in Malaysia, Spain, the UK and the US. It’s fair to say that he’s appeared in some of the most iconic films of all time. If you want to draw a picture of Jackie Chan, all you need is an image of his iconic yellow face and a ballpoint pen. Otherwise, you’ll need a computer with a Wacom tablet.
