As Steve Martin once said, “A celebrity is any well-known TV or movie star who looks like he spends more than 2 hours working on his hair.” As celebrities appear in public quite regularly, we tend to believe that we know all about their lives. However, it turns out that we’re much less knowledgeable about them than we’re used to thinking.
Bright Side gathered the most surprising facts about famous personalities you probably haven’t heard before. And don’t miss our bonus at the end — you’ll see what your favorite stars would look like if they were ordinary people.
- Emma Watson was actually born in France. Her English parents lived in Maisons-Laffitte near Paris until they separated in 1995. At the age of 5, Watson moved back to England to live with her mother in Oxfordshire.
- Bob Marley’s father was white. Marley’s father, Norval Marley, was a British naval captain. At the age of about 60, he met an 18-year-old daughter of African descent, Cedella Malcolm, who got pregnant and delivered little Bobby on February 6, 1945, in Jamaica.
- Elvis Presley was a natural blond. When Elvis was born, he had blond hair but, as he aged, it gradually turned a sandy color. During his senior years, he started occasionally dying his hair black until he eventually left this color that later became a part of his famous personality.
