January Visual Playlist: Celebrities Speak Out About Dyslexia

Updated: Mar 18


For our first Visual Playlist in the New Year, I wanted to introduce some videos of celebrities talking candidly about their dyslexia. I like them all for different reasons.

For example, I have admired Jamie Oliver for a few years now, not just because he has a knighthood from the Queen of England, but because he has become one of the most well known cooks in the world which just goes to show that you can become a great chef no matter what obstacles lay in your path. He is also not afraid to talk about his dyslexia, which I admire greatly. With Henry Winkler, we all know he was the Fonz, but like Jamie Oliver, I admire him because he wants to help other people with dyslexia and he is not afraid to talk about his experiences. I wish more people with dyslexia were like that. There’s also a great interview I did with Whoopi Goldberg, as well as some wise words from Orlando Bloom and actress Bella Thorne.

If you enjoy these, let me know in the comments below. Stay tuned for our next visual playslit and happy viewing!
