Hollywood stars who didn't become famous until after 40

WHATEVER your dream is, it is not too late to achieve it.

You aren't a failure because you haven't found fame and fortune.

It's okay is you don't even know what your dream is yet, because you never know where you'll end up.

You're never too old to start down a new path, never say never and always embrace the power of knowledge and learning.

We're so glad they made the decision to get started and perhaps the knowledge they learned while growing older made them better equipped to chase their dreams.
