Personally or with the help of a reliable trader, they take (or used to take) some major action in trading. In this post, you'll learn more about these famous ambitious people. And yes, they are friends with Forex, too. So, read on for some inspiration for your own business and always choose reliable, professional partners and services.

Michelle Williams: Trader Turned Actress

If you consider the financial field to be too harsh for a woman, think again. Hollywood actress Michelle Williams has proven that succeeding in trading Forex is possible for a woman. In 1997, Michelle took part in the World Cup Championship of Futures Trading and, as surprising as it sounds, won by turning $10,000 into $100,000! This triumph made the soon-to-be actress the third most successful winner of the championship.

'But how's combining acting and trading even possible?', you may ask. As fantastic as the whole thing is, the story comes with a twist. The Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee owes her knack for trading to her dad, Larry Williams, a prominent investor and a well-known trader with nearly sixty years of involvement in the field of stock and Forex trading. Now that Michelle Williams is focused on her acting career, we can only wish her success, in or out of the markets.

John Houseman: Trader Turned Actor

John Houseman, an Oscar-winning British-American actor, and producer, wasn't exactly a Forex trader. His father was involved in a grain trading business, so prior to emigrating to the United States in 1925, John chose to follow his dad's steps and master this craft, too. However, the post-stock market crash Great Depression interfered, leaving the man with no potential for earnings in the field of grain trading at all.

Back in the 30s, entertainment was all the rage, so Houseman saw acting as the only way to make money. Yes, he was a run-of-the-mill trader, but the circumstances led him to become a great actor. Chances are his confidence and character were partially built by his experience in the realm of trading business. Just like Michelle Williams, John Houseman had a reliable mentor in his trading endeavors.

Lee DeWyze: Trader Turned Teens' Idol

There's an opinion that if you have the gentle heart of an artist, you won't be able to master Forex trading or succeed in a similar rough'n'risky business venture. However, with Lee DeWyze, this opinion ends right where it has begun. Prior to shining on the stage of the American Idol, Lee's career took some unexpected turns.

In his early years, he sold paint. Some time later, in 2007, he happened to discover a trading talent and was a Forex trader for a whole year. After that, DeWyze decided to finish his financial career and pursue his music dream. He ultimately won the 9th season of the American Idol and became a teenagers' icon in 2010. Lee DeWyze is the living proof that you can become a successful Forex trader without your family's overwhelming support.

The Bottom Line

From Michelle Williams to Lee DeWyze, there are two things the celebs within today's selection of famous Forex traders have in common: their self-confidence and incredible appetite for risk. Chances are, these qualities have helped them majorly in their future business and career ventures.
