Charlize was born and raised in South Africa, meaning she knows and can speak the native Afrikaans language, along with its many dialects. Her strong accent came from her method of learning English: through a television at home.

The comedy legend is a father of ten, two of which came from ex-marital affairs. His first marriage to Nicole Mitchell is the largest contributor to this colossal family, bearing five children.

The British actress’s height growth can be considered unusual as she didn’t grow any taller after reaching 14 years old, capping at 6’3” (1.9m). She had a chance to become a professional gymnast, although it was taken away from her after a spine injury.

#8 Jackie Chan is banned by insurance companies around the world

Throughout his entire career, not only did Jackie Chan play many great roles in various movies, he also did his own stunts. Because of this, Jackie suffered from physical injuries to multiple body parts. Insurance companies know they would go bankrupt as soon as they start covering Jackie Chan’s medical bills, so they all rejected him early on. Therefore, he usually has to pay for all of it by himself.

#9 Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie have been friends since they were 12 years old

The two girls represented what many considered to be the elite Hollywood youth. They both grew up rich and became famous for different reasons. Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, was a notorious lawyer, while Nicole’s step-father just so happens to be none other than the man who performed the hit song “Hello”, Lionel Richie.

#10 Kit Harington did not know his full name until he turned 11

Our names are an irreplaceable part of our identity, for they carry certain personal, and cultural connections and a sense of individuality. Naming a baby requires careful consideration because each and every name has a different meaning. And yet, this doesn’t apply to Kit Harington. Supposedly, Kit is short for Christopher, but his parents never told him the truth. So the nickname stuck around.

#11 Nicole Kidman once made $3.71 million in 2 minutes

Welcome to the longest Chanel ad in the history of the industry. The video lasted 3 minutes and cost some $33 million. This was also the most expensive advertising campaign of all time, with the runner-ups spending just a bit shy of half the amount Chanel did. In this ad, Nicole Kidman took the spotlight, with 2 minutes of screen time. Chanel reportedly paid her a generous $3.1 million.

#12 Ryan Gosling’s name means “royal baby goose”

As mentioned in #10, every name has a meaning. For Ryan Gosling, the hidden meaning is the following: In Irish, Ryan means “young royalty”, and Gosling is a variation of the word goose, specifically a young baby goose.

#13 Sandra Bullock is the only actress to ever receive an Oscar and a Golden Raspberry in the same year

Winning an Oscar is one of the greatest honors an actor/actress can receive in their career. On the other hand, the Golden Raspberry award is arguably the worst, which some consider being a forgettable experience. In 2010, Sandra won the Award for Worst Actress for the movie All About Steve. To everyone’s surprise, the actress appeared at the event personally to claim the prize, making her the second actress to accept the award in person. Just a few days later, however, she won the Best Actress award for her role in The Blind Side at the 82nd Academy Awards.

#14 Sophie Turner is allergic to horses

Sophie Turner always carries an inhaler with her. To explain this, the Game of Thrones actress claims she is asthmatic and worse, has difficulty breathing whenever nearing horses.

#15 Tilda Swinton and Princess Diana studied in the same class

Tilda’s parents sent her to a boarding school in Kent when she was 10. There, she would encounter many British kids coming from aristocratic families, including a girl who would become the Princess of Wales in the future.
