Celebrities have it all, don’t they? Fame, success, more money than they can count… but the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and just because someone is in the limelight doesn’t mean they don’t have any struggles. For starters, do you know how difficult it is to really make it in the film industry?
And what’s more, keeping up with trends and always showcasing yourself in a positive light is exhausting, what with all the tabloids digging into your personal business at every opportunity, dissecting every action and reaction.
Doesn’t sound easy, does it?
But some celebrities may have even more on their plate than you would have thought. Today, we’re going to talk about celebs with dyslexia, a learning disorder that makes reading difficult. How? People who suffer from dyslexia have a hard time identifying speech sounds and their relation to words and letters. That’s why some might have a hard time not just reading, but also writing, speaking, and spelling.
Now, reading and memorizing all those scripts and lyrics doesn’t sound so easy, does it?
Today, we wanted to list 7 celebrities you didn’t know were dyslexic!
1. Whoopi Goldberg
Actor Whoopi Goldberg always knew something was different about the way she learned, but she didn’t know she had dyslexia until later in life. Although Goldberg was bullied by her classmates, her mother assured her that she could achieve anything.
Beloved co-host of The View, Whoopi Goldberg wasn’t aware of her reading disorder until later on in life. For a long time, she had no idea that what she experienced had a name- dyslexia.
When her mother found out that she was bullied at school for having trouble reading, she assured her that she could achieve anything. And, we have to say, she was 100% on the money!
After all, Goldberg is one of just sixteen entertainers to have won a Grammy Award, an Academy Award, an Emmy Award, and a Tony Award!
