The lines have become very blurred between actors, singers, dancers, and models. It seems like everyone needs to be a quadruple threat just to keep up in the industry. While celebrities are the most popular spokespeople for luxury brands, many of them didnâ€™t start out as models. Many of them do end up modeling at some point in their career, though.
However, there is a select group of people in Hollywood who began their careers as models before moving on to the silver screen. Here are a few of the most famous models who made the leap to acting.
1. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley started her career as a Victoriaâ€™s Secret Angel, modeling their most luxurious underwear on the runway. She also did plenty of work in print advertising, such as the 2008 fall/winter Burberry campaign.
Recently, sheâ€™s become known for her movie roles. Her first foray into acting was in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon. However, people really began to take notice of her acting chops after she played the beautiful and fierce Splendid Angharad in Mad Max: Fury Road.
