Some stories of people rising to fame are downright wild.
Unless you were born famous, a lot of celebrities were just regular people going about their lives until they were ~discovered~ later in life!
And sometimes, it’s in pretty unexpected scenarios. So we want you to tell us your best story of how a celebrity got their big break.
Maybe it’s a super random one, like how Charlize Theron was discovered while yelling at a bank teller because they wouldn’t cash a check she’d been sent.

Or how Natalie Portman was discovered by an agent while eating pizza at a restaurant when she was eleven years old.

It could even be something that made you believe in serendipity, like when Harrison Ford met George Lucas while he was doing some carpentry at a studio.
He'd been in a previous George Lucas film, but Lucas initially didn't want anyone from American Graffiti to be in Star Wars.
