The entertainment industry is overflowing with celebrities whose lives we know like the back of our hands. However, there are still a couple of things we might have missed about some of our beloved stars in Hollywood. Here some of the most noteworthy information about Hollywood’s brightest stars.

Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton is one of the classiest celebrity stars you will ever come across in Hollywood. Surprisingly, she and Princess Diana went and studied in the same class because, if you didn’t know, the actress is a descendant of the ancient Anglo-Scot. Her family history actually goes back a thousand years, making her an elite member of society. Needless to say, Tilda did not need a student loan to get into a great school. Her parents even sent her to a boarding school in Kent, where she studied with a bunch of aristocratic kids, one of them was the late Princess of Wales, Princess Diana.

Sophie Turner

Game Of Thrones superstar Sophie Turner is highly allergic to horses because the Emmy Award nominee has always been asthmatic. She would have a hard time breathing and would occasionally bloat. However, since she needed to be around horses, Sophie has to carry around her inhaler whenever she was on set. It is a small price to pay in exchange for wads of investment money she’ll get from being an actress.

Kit Harington

Christopher Catesby Harington? Who is that? Exactly. Kit Harrington, just like the rest of us, did not know that was his full name — not even him. In fact, it took this actor eleven years before he realized it was his name. The degree of strangeness only gets stronger as it is still a mystery why his parents kept it a secret from him for a decade.

Dev Patel

British actor Dev Patel is, hands down, one of Hollywood’s most incredible actors. However, most people don’t know that he is also a black belter in Taekwondo. Dev has been doing martial arts ever since he was little. It comes as no surprise that he became a professional international prize-winning athlete, giving credit to his mother, who encouraged him to do the sport.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch comes from royalty. He is related to the late King Richard III, who was part of the English monarchy and the last male representative of the family line of Plantagenets of the English throne.

Nicole Richie

It’s not unusual for American socialites to become best friends, especially when they have the same circle of friends from wealthy families. Nicole Richie, Lionel Richie’s daughter,  and Kim Kardashian, lawyer Rober Kardashian’s daughter, are great examples. The two ladies have shared some degree of friendship since they were 12, and it’s all thanks to their Hollywood roots.

Mr. White

Unlike other celebrities on our list, our next superstar isn’t exactly human.

If you grew up watching the 90s classic Stuart Little, then you’re probably familiar with the sassy white cat that goes by the name Snowbell. I bet you did not know that the elderly cat, Mr. White, who played Snowbell, comes from an esteemed Hollywood family. Anna Faris and Chris Pratt deserve the credit for sharing their cat’s adorable talents with the world.

Jackie Chan

Jackie Chan is often involved in films where there are a lot of stunts to be done. It has gone so extreme that insurance companies worldwide have refused their services for this amazing actor. It may not seem fair, but he experiences numerous physical injuries while shooting for his blockbuster films to these companies’ defense. Now, he has to pay his medical bills.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is not only a stunningly gorgeous actress, but she is also extremely intelligent. She had to be, or else she would not have been able to master 26 different Afrikaans’ dialects while growing up on a farm in South Africa. This actress gives credit to television for exposing to several dialects and languages, including English.

Nicole Kidman

With a net worth amounting to $250 million, Nicole Kidman is undoubtedly one of Tinseltown’s wealthiest stars with the best financial advisors. Moreover, not many people know this about the actress, but she once made $3.71 million in under 3 minutes from shooting a commercial with Chanel. This advertisement is the longest one yet in its history, where the producers solely devoted the entire two minutes to Nicole.

These are just some facts about the famous celebrities you ought to know about.
