The celebrities that we see in mainstream media today seem like they all dedicated their entire lives to their media careers. It is easy to assume that movie stars, talk show hosts, and music artists have no real time to start and attend to other hobbies and interests. For some celebrities, this may be true, and for some, their jobs are their hobbies. But for others, taking to the sky and being a pilot was all they really wanted to do as children.

Luckily, most celebrities in Hollywood now have the money to pursue the hobbies they want. Flying is not exactly the cheapest hobby or passion on the planet, especially if you have no access to an airplane. However, the following celebs have spent their hard-earned cash to learn how to fly and become certified pilots…

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, having starred in a myriad of classics like Evan Almighty, Invictus, and Paradise Highway. He is one of the most accomplished movie stars of this generation and as popular as the online pokies NZ has to offer.

Funnily enough, however, not many people know that Freeman has a pilot’s license under his belt, having been a long-time admirer of those who take to the skies.

In fact, before Freeman went into Hollywood, he worked for the United States air force, as a radar technician, and hoped to become a fighter pilot. After he rose to fame he never gave up his dream of flying and started taking pilots lessons in 2002.

Harrison Ford

Now, this one might come as a surprise to nobody, as Harrison Ford has the look of a typical fighter pilot in his pomp. Everyone knows Harrison Ford to be one of the coolest and most capable men in Hollywood, playing major roles in huge blockbuster film series like Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

When Ford was a teenager he had such a love for aviation that he started saving up for lessons to become a pilot. Sadly, it never worked out for young Harrison, so he entered the film industry. That worked wonders and he used his newfound fame and riches to pursue his childhood dream, eventually earning himself a pilot’s license.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is one of the most multi-talented celebrities in Hollywood. Not only is she possibly the most talented actress of her generation, but she is also an active philanthropist and humanitarian. On top of all of that Jolie has also earned herself a certified pilot’s license, meaning she can take to the skies whenever she pleases!

Surprisingly, Jolie gained the inspiration and motivation to fly from her son Maddox, who expressed his intention to become a pilot in the future. Jolie decided that she would also learn to fly, so that when her son grew up they could soar through the air together!
