Following his split from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt got into sculpting. The actor told GQ in 2017 that he was learning to sculpt thanks to his friend Thomas Houseago. "I'm making everything," the Oscar winner said. "I'm working with clay, plaster, rebar, wood. Just trying to learn the materials. … But it's a very, very lonely occupation. There's a lot of manual labor, which is good for me right now. A lot of lugging clay around, chopping and moving and cleaning up after yourself."

She even gave tattoos to some of her "Suicide Squad" co-stars, director David Ayer and a few crew members.
"Bow" down to Geena Davis. Did you know the actress was nearly an Olympic athlete? At 41, she took up archery and became very, very good. In fact, she competed in the U.S. Olympic trials in 1999 prior to the Sydney Games in 2000. "It was the most out-of-body experience I've ever had," she told The New York Times. "I was so nervous because nobody watches you shoot archery. It's not a good spectator sport and there were 50 news crews at the Olympic trials, all standing behind me. Every time I touched the bow, I'd hear cameras clicking. Every shot I took, they panned to the target." In the end, she didn't qualify for the Olympics.

Neil Patrick Harris's hidden talent isn't exactly a secret. The actor has performed magic on multiple TV shows and award shows over the years. He's also performed at Los Angeles's famed Magic Castle. Some of his TV characters have practiced magic as well. In the documentary "M For Magic," NPH said he loved magic as a kid. "I was looking for a hobby, a way to pass the time, that was rewarding in multiple ways," he said. "Not as single-minded as collecting comics or collecting stamps, where you acquire and then just keep. I wanted to acquire a skill that I could keep, and also present. In magic, you find that."

Jessica Chastain's skill is literally a language. The actress knows sign language — she was even seen signing to a deaf autograph-seeking fan several years ago. Jessica said she learned sign language to star in 2011's "Take Shelter," where she played the mother of a deaf girl. She told Interview Magazine, "I took some sign-language courses so I could communicate with her; because Tova [Stewart, the actress] really is deaf."
