Jason Statham

Before Englishman Jason Statham became a household name as Handsome Rob in The Italian Job, he spent 12 years as a competitive diver for Britain's National Diving Squad. He was even at the 1990 Commonwealth Games. From there he was noticed by the media and was picked up by a modelling agency that specialized in sports modelling. He became a model for the French Connection brand of clothing. That led to music videos, which in turn led to movie roles.

    I am original, and I don’t mind being first. Very interesting to read about these people. I have a few similarities. We all probably do. Not much else to say. Nice to know the real names of people, too. I guess not a big discussion-type read, but glad was posted. I like to know the history of things and people.
