Many people in the Hollywood industry these days are known to be involved in activities other than their actual job, be it wrestling, cooking, dancing, or making an album. The surprising thing is that a good number of these famous stars have definitely left Hollywood to enter the world of politics, and some have also been very successful. Today, we have listed some celebrities who left Hollywood to pursue a career in politics.
It is safe to say that the late Shirley Temple lived a lifetime. Infamous for her performances in a handful of Great Depression-era children’s films, Temple also took part in professions, such as dancing and singing. Her career began when she was three years old. Within two years, the actress had achieved enough fame and accolades to make a feature film especially to portray her skills and talent as an actress. The name of the movie was Bright Eyes. However, Shirley changed her mind at the age of 22 and decided to take on a completely new career; she left her position as an actress and spent the rest of her life doing public service.
Caitlyn Jenner is no stranger to the media world. The 72-year-old media personality began her career as an Olympic decathlete and retired from that position as a gold medalist. Jenner married three women who turned out to be very successful; the last one was Kris Jenner, with whom she had two daughters who are leading figures in the Hollywood industry, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Jenner appeared on a reality show called “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” along with her family and her stepsons Kim, Kourtney, Kloe and Rob Kardashian. It sounds like Jenner is looking to walk a different path; the media personality announced in April 2021 that she would be running for Governor of California.
Trump is widely known as the 45th president of the United States. However, some people may be surprised to hear that before she got into politics, the media personality started out as a real estate business owner. Upon inheriting the family business in 1971, Trump became the owner of his father’s real estate business and renamed it The Trump Organization.
It seems that Trump also found his way into the film industry. The Apprentice was a reality show that Trump co-produced and hosted. He also made brief appearances in movies like “Home Alone 2” and “Sex In The City.”
