In this world where genres and jobs aren’t defined anymore – we call this the “Slash Generation” – a talented person can be seen modeling / acting / singing / hosting shows and so on. And why not? Pretty faces aren’t all dumb beauties and actors are more and more invited to develop more than one asset of their career.

CARA DELEVINGNE

But I have no plans to pursue that at the moment” said the 5’8” beauty in an interview by the Mirror, published July 26, 2015.

CARLA BRUNI

French-Italian model Carla Bruni had quite an impact in her modeling years: the 5’10” brunette was signed at age 19 to be featured in Guess? Jeans campaigns, and became in the 90s one of the highest paid fashion models. She was always close to music, as she dated Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, but in 1997 she quit the image world to invest time in sound.

Bruni started by sending lyrics to French pop icon Julien Clerc who composed six songs from her words in 2000, and then stunned the francophone music universe by releasing a beautiful and fragile folk album, “Quelqu’un m’a dit” in 2002, produced by ex-Telephone guitarist Louis Bertignac.

Since then, she released four more albums (in French and English) and became France’s first lady as she married Nicolas Sarkozy in 2008.

 

CHARLOTTE KEMP MUHL

The couple formed a band called The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (or GOASTT), which includes Lennon Jr’s best musical moments and Charlotte’s bass playing talents.

 

 

Pitch Perfect’s ANNA KENDRICK

She’s talented, gorgeous and funny. Meet singer, actress and director Anna Kendrick who rose to fame in the Pitch Perfect movies, in 2012 and 2015. The 30 year-old Portland, Maine, native was a child actress back in the late 90s. She never released an album (yet) but sang a lot in her latest movies, as she leads the a cappela female group The Barden Bellas. Her single Cups was one of the best pop songs of 2006, reaching #6 in the US charts.

 

Other singing / acting / modeling talents could have been added to this list… Think of Scarlett Johansson, who released an album of Tom Waits covers, daughters of Jane Birkin Lou Doillon and Charlotte Gainsbourg also succeeded in both areas, while movie superstars Jeff Bridges, Nicole Kidman and Kevin Bacon all can sing very decently. “Across the Universe” revealed the musical talents of Jim Sturgess, Evan Rachel Wood, and introduced musicians Dana Fuchs and Martin Luther McCoy (who respectively play Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix) in the movie world.
