18. Angelina Jolie – Piloting

Is there anything Angelina Jolie can’t do? She’s an actress, an activist, a mother of six – and a pilot. Jolie earned her license in 2004, and she did so for her kids by all accounts, especially her son Maddox. “When Maddox was one-and-a-half, we used to go to the airfield, have lunch and watch the planes,” she told Vanity Fair in 2010. “And it dawned on me: I could fly.

But when he tried to go pro in the U.S., Perry decided he wasn’t good enough. “I realized I wouldn’t be playing tennis for a living, so I went for acting,” he told Men’s Health in 2012. “Are tennis and acting alike?

He even does it for the cameras sometimes – on MTV in 2009, for instance, and again on The Late Late Show With James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke segment in 2015.
