10+ Strange Facts About 2020's Most Famous Actors Fans Didn't Know

Fame isn't simply something that falls into your lap. The greatest actors and actresses have had to work hard to get where they are, and while they may appear larger than life — they're just as weird as us.

As a way of celebrating the triumphs of hardship, and exposing some lesser-known facts, I've compiled these 10+ strange facts about 2020's most famous actors fans didn't know.

Danai Gurira is a playwright.

Danai comes from a stage and theater background. It was always a dream of hers to write a play that she herself wouldn't star in.

"Eclipsed" blew audiences away and even received a Tony Award nomination.

Will Smith used to be a rapper.

Before making his comedic breakthrough, Will and parter DJ Jazzy Jeff had a handful of radio hits.

Without a doubt, the most well-known track in The Fresh Prince's repertoire was the now campy-classic "Parents Just Don't Understand."

Letitia Wright also has some bars all her own.

On their way to the premiere of Black Panther, Letitia and Lupita Nyong'o felt compelled to bless the internet with some bars!

I absolutely love the UK Grime influence that Letitia comes with — it hits hard.

Paul Rudd takes fantasy football super seriously.

I can tell you from experience that fantasy football tends to bring out the dark side in people. But if you thought that Paul Rudd was all smiles and sunshine — think again.

He absolutely slays Chris Pratt during an appearance on GMFB.

Scarlett Johansson has a singing career.

Scarlett collaborated with artist Pete Yorn to record their album called "Break Up." It's a country-folk album with a bluegrass edge.

They've even performed live and toured together. Maybe one day she and Jeremy Renner will produce a Hawkeye/Black Widow concept album?!

The first record Timothée Chalamet ever bought was 50-Cent's Get Rich Or Die Trying.

Tim was only seven-years-old when he walked into Tower Records with his sister.

He saw the album, emblazoned with the Parental Advisory sticker, and knew he had to have it.

Zoe Saldana co-created the IMDB for fashion.

The website is cleverly called My Fashion Database. Zoe co-founded the company with her ex-husband Keither Britton and the two remain business partners to this day.

MYFDB is designed to be a one-stop-shop for all your fashion needs and questions.

Robert Pattinson chose Harry Potter over University.

When Robert was offered the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, he'd already been accepted to University. The young actor was forced to choose between appearing in the film or beginning his studies.

Thankfully for us all, Robert made the right choice.

Brie Larson could have been a pop star.

Before becoming Captain Marvel, Brie was touring and singing around the country. She recorded one album and had a string of semi-successful singles.

The music isn't great but her acting talent could still be seen, even in this limited scope.

Chris Pratt raises prizewinning sheep.

Chris and his prizewinning Ewe took home the top prize at Fiberpalooza — one of the more prestigious farming and agricultural competitions in the country.

He might dress like he's from LA, but Chris is a farm boy through and through.

Tom Holland is frightened easily.

Poor Tom, he's so often the butt of his castmates jokes. One thing he's become infamous for is his timid demeanor.

You wouldn't expect a superhero to be so jumpy, but as you can see from this video — he isn't the bravest Avenger.

Dwayne Johnson's daughter doesn't believe that he's Maui in *Moana*.

No matter how many adorable videos Dwayne posts wherein he's literally singing "You're Welcome" word-for-word, his daughter still won't bite.

It's the most hilariously adorable thing I've seen all year.

Jennifer Lawrence was high when she accepted her Oscar.

Jennifer admitted to smoking a joint with her brother before the awards ceremony.

She honestly didn't think she had a shot at winning and figured that a little pot might make the loss a little less to bear.

Obviously, she made a terrible miscalculation.

Chris Hemsworth once had a very odd job working at a pharmacy.

A lot of actors claim to have worked strange jobs, but none are as unique as Chris.

It was his responsibility to clean and fix the breast pumps that the pharmacy would loan out to nursing mothers.

Margot Robbie can hold her breath for five minutes!

Margot had to learn the technique for her role in Suicide Squad. She trained with a divemaster who taught her an ancient relaxation technique.

The scene where she's fighting Batman underwater was all Margot — there was no CGI whatsoever!
