Have you ever wondered about the 5 top models that are actors ?
We will show you a list of man and woman that proved to be more than “just a pretty face”.
The first one standing out is Sofia Vergara. By the time she was 20 years old, she was making money as a runway model in her native country. Her debut was made in 1995 still nothing extraordinary happened until 2005, when (out of a sudden a huge role in “Modern family” presented to her), and finally accepted by the North Americans. Her adorable accent and fiery personality came out and won the audience.
You can actually follow her on Instagram
Now a little about her filmography we can mention Hot Pursuit (2015), Wild Card (2015), Family Guy (2013), Happy Feet 2 and Smurfs.
While she was living and studying dentistry at the university in Colombia , Sofia was approached by a photographer who quickly offered her a job in modelling and showbiz. So at the age of 17 she appeared in a Pepsi commercial. Later she appeared again in a Pepsi commercial (2012) together with David Beckham.
In her personal life Vergara had some rough years (impacting her brother) and health problems which she fights until this day (thyroid cancer in 2000)
In 2015 Vergara was under a lawsuit about her embryo’s which she saved in a clinic frozen tank but didn’t wish to proceed further (and allow them to live). It is a strange peace of information and it looks like the whole affair with the lawsuit is just taking advantage of Louisiana’s embryo laws.
Monica Bellucci is the next one on our list. She was one of the prominent top models in New York City at the late 80’s. When she became face of Dolce an Gabbana, she was internationally recognized as an Italian sex symbol. Her acting career started at early 90’s. To increase her international appearance even more, Bellucci was chosen as the oldest girl that ever appeared in Bond movies.
Third one needed to be mentioned is Claudia Schiffer. When she was discovered by Karl Lagerfeld, she began her walk, that covers almost every major designer runway. She tried to make it in the acting world by taking roles in several movies, but we will all agree that she shines the brightest when she walks on runway.
Ian Somerhalder melted women’s hearts with the role of Damon in “The Vampires Diaries”. But, he is also a successful model. In 1997 Ian signed with Next generations and since than has been model for Calvin Klein, Versace, Guess?, etc.
We will finish our list with another male model who will love to see on screens, Kellan Lutz. His modeling career began with Abercrombie & Fitch, and he is currently signed with Ford models. This model also turned out to be a great actor as well. The roles in movies like “Twilight saga”, “Poseidon” and “Hercules” brought him even more fame.
