10 Famous People Who Choose to Live Quiet and Humble Lives When They Leave the Spotlights
When people achieve a certain degree of success, you almost expect them to change. With so much money and attention, it’s easy to fall into the pitfalls of arrogance and obnoxiousness. However, while there are lots of stuck-up celebs, there are also those who haven’t let fame go to their heads.
“Wealth and success don’t make you happy,” Leonardo DiCaprio once said. Perhaps as a result of this way of thinking, many people who work in the entertainment industry maintain a low-key lifestyle after their workday is done.
These people have succeeded in remaining grounded in an industry that tries to force them otherwise. They really understand what is truly important in life, whether it be giving money to charity, spending time with fans, or just being a good person. Millions of people from all over the world now love and appreciate them as a result. Here are 10 famous people who, when not in the spotlight, choose to lead quiet, modest lives.

8 Non-Disney Cartoons That Promise Remarkable Live-Action Or CGI Remakes
We all are familiar with the live-action adaptation or CGI remakes of many Disney cartoons. Some notable names are Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, and the list goes on. Many animated films have regained the heat after the live-action or CGI versions hit theaters. Some mediocre cartoons even have a chance to reach the top rank if the remakes are successful. Of course, besides Disney productions, cartoons from other studios are also considered to be put on the big screen, and here are 8 of them.
Scroll down to see if your favorite one has its name on the list!
#1 The Last Unicorn (1982)
Source: Amazon Prime Video
Topcraft’s animation is the journey of the last eternal unicorn to find other members of her kind. The team of the unicorn, a bumbling magician, and a bandit’s wife sets off on a fascinating adventure and faces many dangers. On the way, the legendary creature learns many precious lessons about love and regret.
A weak point in the original version is the stiff and awkward character designs. However, it lays a strong foundation for a CGI mixed live-action remake.
#2 The Adventures of Mark Twain (1985)
Will Vinton introduced the enthralling works of the father of American literature to children through this stop-motion animation. The audience would follow Tom Sawyer and his friend to discover Mark Twain’s airship. They explored the place while watching and listening to Twain’s stories before they realized the ship was heading into Halley’s Comet.
As stop-motion has many limits, the film’s CGI remake seems to promise a much better version. The lively animation associated with the famous writer’s absorbing stories will make it a top-notch movie.
#3 Perfect Blue (1997)
Perfect Blue revolved around Mima Kirigoe, a J-pop idol-turned-actor. Mima intends to stick to her acting career, but a menace of a mysterious stalker and a series of peculiar murders around her mess up her plan.
This adult animated film could become a fascinating psychological thriller with an ideal cast as Mima and the right level of visual effects.
#4 We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story (1993)
Source: Apple TV
With the time machine, a scientist decides to gift the children of the 20th century in New York City with sentimental dinosaurs brought from their natural habitats.
We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story could be turned into a lovely live-action CGI hybrid film. Cinematic dinosaurs can’t be more real, and this lighthearted script will make dinosaurs’ images much better, at least compared to Jurassic Park. After all, people should be reminded that dinosaurs are more than monsters.
#5 Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland (1989)
Source: Amazon Prime Video
Little Nemo is upset since his parents are too busy to take him to the circus. That night, he meets members of the circus in his dream, and they introduce him to King Morpheus, ruler of Slumberland. When Nemo sees the king, he was offered an opportunity to rule the kingdom and protect it from the Nightmare King.
A dreamland like Slumberland is a perfect place for creativity, and innovative animators know how to make the best use of it. Looking at similar movies like Inside Out and Soul will make you certain about the success of this film’s CGI remake.
#6 Animal Farm (1954)
The animated movie Animal Farm was adapted from George Orwell’s famous novel of the same name. The story is about an animal farm that represents the rise of the Soviet Union. Under the Old Major the boar’s leadership, the animals of Manor Farm chase away the farmer to gain independence. However, the utopia turns out a nightmare for the animals under the dominance of Major’s successors.
Andy Serkis is the director of the latest animated adaptation of the story. His talent combined with the assistance of CGI technology will likely guarantee a first-rate adaptation movie.
#7 Wizards (1977)
Source: Apple TV
Written by Ralph Bakshi, the movie feature the fight between two wizard brothers over the governance of a post-apocalyptic Earth. The malicious brother, Blackwolf, uses a projector with Nazi propaganda to provoke his troop. To stop his evil plan, Avatar, his brother, with some weird companions decide to confront him.
The action flick doesn’t leave much impression on the viewers due to its old-fashioned and cheap-looking animation. The battle could be more exciting and absorbing with more detailed character designs in the CGI remake.
#8 Cats Don’t Dance (1997)
Source: Apple TV
The young cat Danny is ambitious about becoming a renowned Hollywood actor. However, he gradually realized that animal actors only play cameo roles while humans take charge of all the main parts. Instead of giving up, he and his fellow actors are determined to prove their capability and get what they deserve.
Though the animation Cats Don’t Dance failed hard, the meaningful premise should be brought back to the screen. Having been successful with Space Jam: A New Legacy, Warner Brothers can definitely handle a new version with CGI models of Cats Don’t Dance.

12 Low-Budget Films That Made Eye-Popping Revenue at the Box Office
There’s no denying that movies are more costly than ever. It’s not rare for a production company to invest hundreds of millions ( even billions) in filmmaking. As long as you have the right actor, director, or intellectual property, you may be able to recoup your huge investment. But what about ambitious directors who can’t afford to make a film about your favorite superhero or cast any big-name actors? The independent market is for directors with a limited budget. Low investment, low return.
However, there are certain exceptions: when a low-budget film outperforms expectations. This unusual event can launch unknown actors to stardom and first-time directors to legends. You may be familiar with some breakout independent films, but you’d be shocked how many of your favorite films had a far lower budget than you expected.
To clarify, this list isn’t rated only by the lowest budget, but rather by how successful the films were given the budget they had to deal with. So, without further ado, here are 12 low-budget films that went on to become box office hits.
#1 A Nightmare on Elm Street
