Sharon Stone

After competing for Miss Pennsylvania, Sharon Stone abandoned college and pursued a modeling career. While posing for Vogue and Elle, she realized this wasn’t the path for her. The Emmy Award-winning actress ditched modeling to be more creative through acting. Nearly 40 years later, she’s become one of the most prolific actresses ever.

Djimon Hounsou

A run-in with a photographer helped launch Djimon Hounsou’s modeling career. Through modeling, the Oscar-nominated actor landed appearances in music videos for acts such as Janet Jackson and Madonna. “I got into modeling accidentally because I was looking for ways to get into acting,” he told Cloture Club.
