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?

I think Michael probably felt like that child his entire life. Which is why he had such a childlike quality to him...

Not surprised at all. Just listen to his music and look up pictures of him.

I was always fascinated by Lucy Liu. Don't know why. Although not in a way to be fangirling about her. But every time I see her on the screen or a photo, my brain is like "she's amazing!"

I don't like these, but I guess the fact that they make me feel creep makes them good art, cause it's only art if it makes you feel something

If this is representative of his art, I think I will stick to listening to his music.
