My Top Most Talented People In Their Field

In MY OPINION Most of the people you will find are the old g's of Hollywood, when Hollywood took on people that had talent and not because of they look like another actress,actor,model or singer. Models can't act, they can barely walk, Celebrity kids can't act..Talent is rarely passed down through genes. Musicians can't act.. they just stand on stage sing and play an instrument MAYBE and that's a big maybe. When did Hollywood stop being true to themselves, sold out to make a quick few extra bucks.
