Admit it; you’ve probably thought to yourself that supermodels and actors are not the sharpest tools in the shed. They make their living walking up and down in a straight line, eating lettuce or saying a few lines at a time in front of the camera, which isn’t exactly something that requires a high IQ. But hush your mouth, it turns out that the good-looking are sometimes smarter than they appear, and even have hidden talents.
Bet you didn’t know that Ben Affleck was a genius at poker, and has won $356,000 in a tournament. Keep that in mind next time you’re hitting the online slots. Ben Affleck played casino games and walked away with over a quarter of a million dollars. So he’s more than just a ruggedly handsome face, he’s smart, too.
Now we know more about an actor that has hidden skills, let’s take a look some other good-looking folks who can do things other than be easy on the eye.
If you think this German supermodel is just about being thin, and having the ability to keep upright while traversing a catwalk, you should be ashamed of yourself. She hosts Project Runway, which proves that she can also speak to a camera, and read lines from a television prompter.
Think that’s all? She studied jazz, ballet dancing, tap dancing, and belly dancing for 15 years. Skills that have enriched her life and are the key to where she is today. It’s a well known fact that being the host of a show and model are made infinitely easier by knowing how to tap dance. Heidi Klum, why did we ever doubt your abilities?
Behati Prinsloo staggered thousands across the world when she gave birth to her daughter, named Gio, and was back in a bikini just two weeks after. So already this beauty is clearly more than just a pretty face. She can also avoid food and hit the gym like a demon for a two-week period.
You want more? Brace yourself. Behati recently let slip that she can wiggle her little toe without involving movement from the other toes. Plus, she’s a whizz with a hula hoop. I bet you feel pretty shallow for assuming models didn’t have other talents now, don’t you?
Canadian model Coca Rocha has splendid cheekbones, and looks all the rage when parting her lips sensually. Learning the lip parting technique isn’t easy, and neither is being an Irish dancer. Coca once danced the way of the Irish competitively, before giving it all up and turning her eye to the catwalks.
She probably makes a great deal more money being a model, but every now and again she gets to draw on her roots, and has danced down the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier in his 2017 Fall/Winter show. Proving that sometimes, being able to do a jig gives you the chance to show off a bit more than the rest of the runway models.
Last but not least is Cara Delevingne. She is a well-known model, and has also appeared in a few movies. So we know she can look good, and also hold it together in front of a camera. So far, not an impressive resume as far as the modelling world goes. Only Behati Prinsloo has egg on her face at this point.
But what’s this? It turns out this red lipped beauty has a talent that puts her head and shoulders above the rest, and blows the competition out of the water. Cara can beatbox and has even done so with Justin Timberlake. Heidi Klum probably wishes she had dropped those ballet classes, and got in on a bit of the beatboxing action. In all seriousness though, she can also play the drums, which really isn’t easy. So, she’s pretty, musical and can act. That’s a winning trifecta right there.
