In 2002, Adrien Brody became the youngest person ever to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, at age 29. He’s a household name for that role, as Polish pianist and composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist. And he has since gone on to star in films such as Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong (2005), and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris (2011). But two years ago, Brody decided it was time to devote himself to a passion he had long neglected: painting.

    It's pretty awesome that he was able to step away from acting for a couple of years (and all the money that goes along with it) to do something completely different.
