Reading: Becoming a famous actor
Read the text about actors and choose the correct alternative to complete the sentences.

When you read the history of an artist's life, their biography, you are often surprised by how normal their life was before they became famous. Because they are famous now, we think they have had a very special childhood, but this is not always true. Most of them were born into a traditional family, went to school, had friends, went to university or drama school, graduated, and so on. Many famous actors, like Leonardo Di Caprio and Sarah Jessica Parker, grew up in poor families and sometimes dangerous parts of their city. They did all kinds of other jobs first to earn money. Only a few were born into famous families, like Jaden Smith or Taylor Swift. Fame certainly depends on many factors. Sometimes it is a matter of chance or being in the right place at the right time. Certainly, hard work and ambition are extremely important nowadays, especially with so much competition. I've met many great artists in my life and a lot of them have never become well known. Probably they haven't met the right person who could introduce them to an agent. So they haven't had the opportunity they deserved. Or maybe they just didn't believe in themselves enough.

According to the article:
1. Most artists have grown up in ________ families.
2. Sometimes you can become famous because of your ________.
3. There is a lot of ________ nowadays.
4. The writer has met many ________ in his life.
5. She thinks it's important to believe in ________.
