And in that scenario, about 757 million around the globe are illiterate- both in developed and developing spheres of the world. By terming them under the poorly educated tag, it means that not only can they not read a book, they aren’t equipped with much knowledge to even read the labels on a medication prescription. Undeniably, education is important; and like the popular belief, the higher the education received, the more successful path you will lead. But for those who have never been to schools or even received minimal education, it is said and believed that those are the folks who are headed toward a torturous career lane. But looking at the Hollywood side of the illiteracy, mere ability to read is that last thing that makes an actor. Emotions and the desire to drive their actions to make their on-screen job look very much real is all that it needs to build a reputation and earn success. Creativity and artistic skills are what comes to play and no one really looks into the kind of advanced education pursued by the actors. Legends like John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix are some of the greatest songwriters of all time- neither of them could read music. Entrepreneur Henry Ford never went to school and actor Mark Wahlberg graduated high school at the age of 42; there are still so many names that have created a niche for themselves in this industry sans education. Keep reading and have your mind blown by some of the famous personalities who come under the illiteracy bandwidth!

You won't believe how many of these famous people never made it through in college or schools!
