Hollywood Sign

Hollywood celebrities are some of the most popular people in the world.

You might have seen a newsfeed or a Facebook status update on some celeb or another, but did you know that these people are not just famous, they’re also incredibly well-paid? Spoilers: they’re extremely successful at it. This is the case for so many celebrities, and for the reason that their careers are very much influenced by those of the public that surround them.
We all want to be considered “the next big thing”, and think that we can do it when we start working in Hollywood. But how many people really know who all this stuff really is?
What do you need to know about celebrity life? How about how much money is actually made from them? Here are five facts about Hollywood celebrities (as well as common myths) that may surprise you:
1) A lot of famous people seem to be rich
2) Some famous people just make it look easy by being rich
3) Some famous people even make a lot of money doing almost nothing
4) There are celebrities who are actually very good at what they do
5) Not all celebrity success would be good or even possible if they worked in different industries instead of in showbiz.And lastly… 6) The more fame you have, the more money you get paid – lots of it!
These were tidbits from a post I wrote for my personal blog ( http://www.richardgutman.com ) where I talked about my friends and colleagues who were professional actors and screenwriters on a variety of high-profile productions (including Muppets). They cover a wide range of experience levels, which is great because it means I can talk to anyone who may have an idea what they’re talking about (beyond “I didn’t work on any movies or TV shows but I did have some interesting jobs while growing up”).

 Top 5 Famous Hollywood Celebrities:

This is an interesting topic because Hollywood celebrities and tech companies have a lot in common. Just as the tech industry is a very large market, so is Hollywood. But the differences between them are vast, and it’s easy to see how they both could be best explained by how they’ve been portrayed in popular culture over the last few years.
The following are seven famous Hollywood icons whose careers have been defined by their relationships with technology, not just their actual career accomplishments:
1. Leonardo DiCaprio: First name “Leonardo” and last name “DiCaprio”. He made his acting debut with The Basketball Diaries (2000) and has gone on to appear in several other movies, including Titanic (1997), Romeo + Juliet (1996), What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), The Aviator (2004), and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). He also has a very successful business venture called Appian Way, which was founded in 2009 to develop applications for mobile devices.
2. Penelope Cruz: Her acting career began at age five when she won a coveted role on the Spanish TV series Casablanca, where she played enchanted girl Maria from Casablanca (‘The good thing about a broken clock is that you can put it back together again every day’), before appearing later in films like Death Sentence (1995) and 3 Women (2004). She has since appeared in more than 60 films and television series since her debut.
3. Jennifer Aniston: This actress started out appearing in teen movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) before starring as Rachel Green on Friends from 1994 until 2001, when she left the show due to creative differences with NBC executives. She continued her acting career with roles in films The Break-Up(1999) , Wild Things(2003) , Anger Management(2008) , Love Is Better Than Money(2009) , My Best Friend’s Boyfriend(2013), Horrible Bosses 2(2014), People Like Us(2015). Her most recent movie roles include Inglourious Basterds(2009) , Love & Mercy(2011 ) , Girlhood(2014), Barely Famous(2015). She also has a successful business venture called Starlight Pictures, which creates music videos for artists like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
4. Jennifer Aniston: Jennifer Aniston spent much of her early professional life playing comedic characters on television sitcoms such as Friends, In Living Color,
5. Tom CruiseTom Cruise is one of the biggest movie stars in the world. His name is synonymous with “he’s looking for love in all the wrong places”. But, Tom Cruise has been a triple threat — he’s a successful actor, producer and director. It’s no wonder that he overthrew Steve McQueen as the most bankable action star in Hollywood.

These are just a few of the most famous Hollywood celebrities.

The following is a list of Hollywood celebrities based on the number of times they were mentioned in Wikipedia.
