Being a successful artist, whether an actor, musician, or painter, is an accomplishment in itself. However, there are certain celebrities who didn’t want to stick with just one field and have proven to excel in several disciplines, extending their talent and demonstrating their sensitivity when it comes to learning new things.

Bright Side would like to share a list of some celebrities who have proven to have talent in several different areas.

In 1998, he and his brother formed the band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and from there, they maintained a successful career in which they sold millions of copies, received numerous award nominations, and even broke a Guinness World Record for “number of concerts performed” in 2011.

2. Jimmy Fallon: host and actor

Jim Carrey not only stands out for his acting talent (both for comedy and drama) but also, for some years now, he has developed an interesting career in painting and sculpture.

6. Anthony Hopkins: actor, musician, and painter

Anthony Hopkins is not only a gifted, 2-time Oscar-winning actor, but he also has slightly more secret talents in music and painting.

Not content with this, the Welshman has also shown a talent for painting, reaffirming his great talent and creativity in almost every field.

Jessica Alba has not only demonstrated her talent in the world of acting, but she has also achieved great success in her field as an entrepreneur, being co-founder and creative director of the successful company, The Honest Company, a very well-known and referenced brand in the business world.

8. Neil Patrick Harris: actor, magician, and writer

9. Lucy Liu: actress and painter

Before starting her acclaimed career as an actress, Lucy Liu already stood out as a painter, a field in which she has been working since she was 16 years old. Her talent is so marked that she has even had numerous exhibitions around the world.

10. Jack Black: actor and musician

Jack Black has extended his musical talents to his acting career, showing off his skills, for example, in School of Rock. Even Tenacious D, the musical duo he has with Kyle Glass, had its own movie.
