4. Halle Berry
The Oscar winning actress is undeniably a very talented person who is currently doing well in her acting career. She once had a very rough patch when she was younger. She left her life and risked everything to go try out acting in Chicago.
She asked her mother for financial assistance but she did not get anything. This forced her to stay in a homeless shelter. This unfortunate experience helped her to become determined and to be able to live through hard times, something that has made her what she is today.
