Johnny Depp, Steven Spielberg, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer and Lady Gaga are some famous shy people. Others include major politicians and social activists, such as Abraham Lincoln and Rosa Parks.
Johnny Depp, one of Hollywood's most successful stars, has stated that he hates fame and does everything to avoid it. In the 1980s he even shaved his eyebrows to combat his popular status as a teen idol. Director Steven Spielberg said that he always felt shy and awkward because he felt like an outsider. Actress Nicole Kidman has admitted that it was natural for her to want to disappear into the dark of a theater. Despite her glitzy theatrical performances, singer Lady Gaga relates the Hollywood scene to being in high school, saying that she's very shy when she meets people she doesn't know.
