It’s Never Too Late!
Our society has a way of inculcating the thought that there is a perfect age for doing particular things. Although it is not wrong to believe that it is never too late to start from scratch. In India, we have a way of keeping celebrities on a pedestal, be it any kind of a celebrity and we tend to follow their way of life, thought process. There are however a few celebrities who proves that age is just a number and it is indeed never late to start anything that the heart wishes for and it wouldn’t actually be wrong to follow their path more often. A few of them are;
Oprah Winfrey didn’t become the Oprah we know now until she was 32 when The Oprah Winfrey Show debuted. The media mogul is a firm reminder that not all your success should have happened by the time you’re 30.
Jay Z is an inspiration for all of those twenty somethings who worry that they haven’t made their mark yet. The Brooklyn rapper was 26 when his first album Reasonable Doubt dropped and blew up after years of grinding.
Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson first appeared on our radars in Jungle Fever at the age of 43. Jackson, one of the world’s highest paid actors, didn’t score his breakout role in Pulp Fiction until 1994 at the age of 46. Since then he’s appeared in over 100 films.
It may seem like he’s always been around but the truth is that we weren’t really introduced to Morgan Freeman until he was 52 and starring in 1989’s Glory as Sergeant Major Rawlins.
Viola Davis was an extremely accomplished actress prior to her role of Professor Annalise Keating in How to Get Away With Murder. However, it is this role that has made her a household name and the first African American to win a Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at 49.
Following the death of her father during the first year of college, Regina Hall decided to make sure she chased her dreams. In 1997 she booked her first commercial at the age of 26, two years later at 29 we were introduced to the young star when she played Candy in The Best Man.
