24 'Wait-A-Minute-What?' Celeb Facts

Celebrities! They're just like us! Except when they're not. However, they may be different from us for different reasons than you think. Sure, they're famous actors, writers, musicians, sports stars, and general personalities, however many of them have special attributes and accomplishments that still set them apart from most people aside from the skills they are most famous for.

Celebrities get a ton of attention and adulation, we're not here to dispute that. In fact, they probably get too much attention and love from the masses. The thing is, sometimes there's an objectively interesting or amazing thing about a famous person that gets completely missed. Like how the gruff guy from Dirty Jobs is a trained opera singer. Or that dude from The Offspring being molecular biologist. Or that classic film actress that pretty much invented WiFi.
