It has been said that all politicians would like to be in entertainment and most celebrities would like to be in politics. Sometimes the lines get blurred. While there are not many examples of politicians who became stars, take a look at this list of 15 people who gained celebrity in other fields, and moved into politics.

1.Ronald Reagan

No question, he’s at the top of the list. Reagan was born in Illinois but served as California’s 33rd Governor and the 40th President of The United States. Before that little job he starred in movies with legends like Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, and Humphrey Bogart. He also shared the screen with a monkey in the classic “Bedtime for Bonzo”. Hail to the chimp.
