Posted on: 21 December 2016 by Jessica Thompson

Many well known celebs who have had a tough start yet proved many challenges to be where they are now. This shows that a goal can be achieved even after any obstacle. These 10 celebrity have battled adversity to become hugely successful.

The list has been provided to you by West End Stage

Jim Carrey

 

Actor

 

Networth - $150 Million

 

Being forced to quit school and live in a van when his father lost his job, and suffering from depression and ADHD in later life, didn't stop Jim Carrey from becoming one of the most successful comedic actors alive today.

 

Michael J Fox

 

Actor

 

Networth - $65 Million

 

Despite being diagnosed as having early onset Parkinson’s during filming in 1990, having already made a name for himself in the first two movies of the Back to the Future trilogy, Michael continued to work in the entertainment industry and went on to win more awards for his TV roles in Spin City and Rescue Me.

 

Charlize Theron

 

Actress

 

Networth - $110 Million

 

Charlize's childhood come into hardship when she lost her father at a young age. During her first career, as a successful ballet dancer, she struggled with recurrent knee injuries and eventually gave up dancing to become a model. After moving to Los Angeles, she was spotted by a talent agent in a local bank and her big break came when she won the role of Aileen Wuornos in Monster. The rest, as they say, is history.

 

Marlee Matlin

 

Actress

 

Networth - $11 Million

 

Despite losing her hearing at the age of 18 months, Marlee was always interested in acting. After struggling with her disability the stage became her refuge and she was discovered by no one other than the Fonz, otherwise known as actor Henry Winkler. She became the first deaf person to win an Oscar, in 1986, for her performance in Children of a Lesser God, when she was just 21.

 

Stephen J Cannell

 

TV Producer, Writer and Novelist

 

Networth – N/A

 

Although he was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age, Stephen J Cannell went on to write many highly successful TV shows, including The A-Team, Columbo, Baretta, 21 Jump Street and The Commish. During the course of his career, he scripted almost 500 TV episodes and produced more than 1,500.

 

Oprah Winfrey

 

Talk Show Host

 

Networth - $2.8 Billion

 

The daughter of a poverty-stricken teenage mother, Oprah became a teenage mother herself, at the age of 14. Her son was born prematurely, passing shortly afterwards, and Oprah's mother subsequently sent her to live with her father in Nashville. It was after this move that Oprah started to focus on her education and, after moving to Chicago, eventually became the TV mega star we know today.

 

Cesar Millan

 

Dog Trainer, Host of “Dog Whisperer” TV Series

 

Networth - $25 Million

 

Born into a poor Mexican family, Cesar spent most of his childhood playing with dogs on his grandfather's farm in Sinaloa. When he was 21, he crossed the border into the USA illegally and lived on the streets before getting a job at a dog grooming parlour. Using the contacts he made there, he built a thriving business of his own and went on to become a major TV star.

 

Russell Brand

 

Actor/Comedian

 

Networth - $15 Million

 

His parents divorced when he was just 6 months old and his mother, who was raising him alone, developed uterine cancer when he was 8, then breast cancer. At 14, he suffered from bulimia, and at 16, he left home due to arguments with his mother's partner. Overcoming a shadowed past, as well as ADHD and bipolar disease, he found success through his career as a stand-up comedian and comedic actor.

 

Stephen King

 

Author

 

Networth - $400 Million

 

His father walked out on him, his adopted brother and his mother when he was 2 years old but Stephen overcame this less than fortuitous start to life and started writing horror fiction in the early 70s. Although the death of his mother in his 20s and problems with alcohol addiction threatened to derail his career, he went on to become a world famous horror novelist.

 

Keanu Reeves

 

Actor

 

Networth - $350 Million

 

Born in Beirut, Keanu's parents split up when he was 3 and he spent much of his childhood moving from place to place. His mother remarried 3 times and moved from New York to Sydney, Australia. His grandparents eventually took over responsibility for raising him, in Toronto, where he attended various schools but never managed to settle or gain any qualifications, being classified as disruptive and dyslexic. The only thing he excelled at was acting, which was to become his path to success and global recognition.

Adorable little baby girl clothes boutique outfit for a great price. I would say the sizing is good; I ordered the size as per normal but it is too big... but we've got a petite baby so she'll grow into it... better too big than too small and have to return. The jeans are a crack-up... ripped and stylish, seem to be made well - too cute. The top is more of a silky/satin fabric (thought it was a cotton/t-shirt) but it is adorable. A+ all the way!
