Most of the famous people that we know today weren’t born with a silver spoon. They made full use of their potential and grabbed the opportunity that they came across with both their hands. They had the single-minded devotion to achieve their target and didn’t let any disability (permanent or temporary) discourage them. Here, we are going to see 25 famous people who had hearing loss issues but didn’t make it affect them.
1). Bill Clinton
The former President of the US and one of the most charismatic persons to occupy the chair ever, Bill Clinton was diagnosed with the high-frequency hearing loss. He couldn’t hear properly especially when the environment was noisy, and he used the in-canal hearing aids for his support.
2). Halle Berry
Academy-Award winning actress, Halle Berry suffered from 80% hearing loss in her left ear because she was hit brutally by her boyfriend. That made her take a strong stand against domestic violence, and she has never allowed this disability to hamper her spirits in any way.
3). Thomas Edison
The world-famous scientist, Thomas Edison is the inventor of quite a lot of things, but most us know that he experienced hearing loss problems in both his ears right from childhood. Though he joked that his hearing loss helped him concentrate better, it would have created lots of challenges for him, but he chose to ignore them.
4). Stephen Colbert
The award-winning talk show host and one of the most famous political satirists of his time, Stephen Colbert had a tumor in his right ear during childhood. A subsequent surgery ensured that his eardrum had to be removed, thereby leaving him completely deaf in his right ear.
5). Whoopie Goldberg
Due to years of listening to loud music, Whoopi Goldberg experienced hearing loss issues in both her ears. The Academy-Award winning actress wears hearing aids and advises people not to expose their ears to loud music.
