Will Smith – A real Figure in the celebrity world – Proud Father of two stars
These are just a few famous figures, who are involved in the acting world, deaing with scripts, constant deadlines, scene after scene and they both are DYSLEXIC.
Yes Both Kiera and Will have Dyslexia but you wouldn’t think so because they didnt play VICTIM they played VICTOR and moulded themselves into what they desired.
Even TOM CRUISE is Dyslexic and he said
Being dyslexic, I had to train myself to focus my attention. I became very visual and learned how to create mental images in order to comprehend what I read”
There is a lesson to be learnt from all these celebs, put aside the fact they have money and are extremely wealth and well known. They had something else even more special and that was VISION they recognised their limitations and turned them into strengths.
1. Whoopi Goldberg
Until she explained her difficulties with reading to a perceptive teacher as an adult, Goldberg had no idea she was dyslexic. She was then able to learn the strategies necessary that would allow her to make sense of written language. Goldberg went on to become an incredibly successful actress and comedienne. She is one of the few people in the world to have been awarded an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony, and a Grammy. Goldberg is also the only woman to have ever hosted the Academy Awards. Her radio show, Wake Up With Whoopi, premiered on Clear Channel Radio at the end of July 1006. She has several upcoming movies slated for release, including It’s Under My skin and The Last Guy on Earth.
2. Tommy Hilfiger
Growing up in New York during the ’50s and ’60s, Hilfiger struggled with school because of his dyslexia. While reading proved difficult for him, he developed a keen eye for what lines and shapes suited the body. Hilfiger’s sharp fashion sense and entrepreneurial drive helped him to launch his own label in 1982. Since then, his business has branched out to design not just men and women’s wear, but children’s clothing, shoes, home furnishings, and personal fragrances. Hilfiger has experienced continued success with an ever-increasing celebrity clientele, new store openings around the globe and company revenues in the hundreds of millions.
3. Jamie Oliver
This young, hip chef has made cooking cool for a new generation of Food Network viewers. While dyslexia problematized reading for Oliver as a student, he made it a point to finish every cookbook from the well-known Bay Area French restaurant, Chez Panisse. Oliver’s learning disability has not stood in the way of his achievements; he has been the host of several popular cooking television programs, such as The Naked Chef and Oliver’s Twist, and has written seven cookbooks, including the bestselling Jamie’s Dinners. His latest television series-Jamie’s School Lunch Project-documents his quest to revamp the menu of a British elementary school through the introduction of healthier cooking methods and the incorporation of organic foods.
