8. Vanessa Williams

The Ugly Betty star was an aspiring ballet dancer before becoming an actress. Williams’ dancing dreams were cut short when she developed scoliosis. The actress said, “It derailed me for a while, it was so severe I had to have a spinal fusion where they put 8-inch metal rods and screws in my spine. I just took off one year where I didn’t do any physical activity.” Williams believes that her scoliosis diagnosis was a blessing in disguise, because although she enjoyed ballet, her condition caused her to fall in love with acting.
