Would a famous Hollywood star or celebrity singer have trouble getting a job at Wall Street in high-finance?

These people are already exposed to people-facing roles, "acting" professional, working on multi-million dollar contracts and working well with others. They also show excellent confidence and charisma.

Can you picture people like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise or Justin Timberlake having trouble landing a top job at Wall Street? Or would their celebrity status make them "too much" because firms don't want that kind of attention?

Have you ever heard the saying, "there's no such thing as a dumb question."? You have just proven them wrong.
