When you think of celebrities, you probably think of the TV shows and movies that they’ve made. But many of the world’s favorite celebrities have hidden qualities. Sometimes these qualities are even more impressive than their acting abilities. The next five celebrities are inspiring for their real life personal qualities, not just for the roles they’ve played.
1. Chrissy Teigen is a Generous Tipper
Chrissy Teigen is known for her generosity when it comes to leaving tips. While visiting an Outback Steakhouse in Oho with her daughter, Teigen rewarded her waiter with a $1,000 tip on a food bill that was less than $200. Teigen knows what it’s like to work hard for every dollar, and she shows her appreciation for good service.
2. Tippi Hedren Started an Entire Industry
Have you ever wondered why the majority of nail salons in the U.S. are run by Asian women? You can thank Tippi Hedren. Remember the actress from Pyscho who met her demise in the famous shower scene? Tipi Hedren once visited a refugee camp in California when was younger. The young Vietnamese women were dazzled by Tippi’s gorgeous, long nails. Tippi’s heart was touched. She flew in her personal manicurist to teach the 20 refuges the art of doing manicures. They went on to start their own small businesses in the U.S. They also taught the skill to their daughters, and the rest is history.
3. Keanu Reeves is a Nice Guy
Number three on our list is Keanu Reeves. Keanu is known wherever he goes for being a down-to-earth nice guy. He’s even been seen sitting down next to homeless people on the street in Hollywood. On a trip where the plane had to make an emergency landing, Keanu stuck around with the rest of the passengers. Instead of hightailing it out of there in a private limo, Keanu took the bus with everyone else. He “secretly” donates millions to children’s hospitals. He routinely gives up his seat on the bus for female and older passengers. Keanu Reeves is an all-around nice guy!
4. Kiefer Sutherland the Musician
Kiefer Sutherland is well-known for his roles in major movies and popular television series. But he’s also an accomplished musician with his own band. The name of Kiefer Sutherland’s band is the Kiefer Sutherland band. He plays the harmonica and the guitar, and sings lead vocals. There’s a lot to love about Kiefer and his music talent is yet another awesome quality.
5. Dolly Parton Helps Those Less Fortunate
Dolly Parton’s voice is widely-recognized. What is little known about Dolly is that she works hard to help those less fortunate. Dolly Parton was raised in poverty. Maybe that’s why she goes out of her way to help the poor. She created the Dollywood Foundation to help Appalachian kids to succeed in school. This is just one more reason to admire “The Queen of Nashville.”
These five celebrities are much more than what they appear to be on-screen. They have hidden qualities that make us proud of them for brand new reasons!
