Thandie Newton

While life certainly turned out well for this British-Zimbabwean beauty, as a child she was the odd one out. "From about the age of five, I was aware that I didn't fit," she said. "I was the Black, atheist kid in the all-white, Catholic school run by nuns. I was an anomaly." Proof that being different isn't always a bad thing.
