Celebrities live under a microscope, yet some still have hidden talents. Well, maybe they weren’t hiding it, the media just chose to focus on other things about them.

Some of these people started painting before fame, some discovered art later in life. Some famous people have been painting under a pseudonym for years and you might have heard of them already. For instance, Lucy Liu first started showing her works of art under the pseudonym Yu Ling in 1993 but is now exhibiting beautiful paintings under her real name.

We did a bit of digging and were amazed about how multi-talented some celebrities are. Our biggest surprise was perhaps Sylvester Stallone whom we usually imagine as Rambo, fighting hundreds of bad guys. Take a look at the list below and tell us, which of the popular celebrities do you think should give up their career path and become a full-time artist?

Stallone was also in a (really bad) porn once. It was early in his career. Had to pay the bills, I guess! I still love the Italian Stallion. ;)
