10 Celebrities Who Overcame A Learning Disability

10. Tim Burton – Asperger’s Syndrome

If you have ever seen a Tim Burton movie then you know he is one of the most creative minds in Hollywood. The man who gave us Beetlejuice and over half of Johnny Depp‘s career films has been working as one of the greatest minds around. His carefully constructed Nightmare Before Christmas is a classic film that’ll go down in history as one of the greatest creative achievements of all time. Edward Scissorhands is another creative triumph for the very interesting director. His wife Helen Bonham Carter noticed that her husband has numerous symptoms and similarities to Asperger’s Syndrome. Burton has since come through the realization that he has Asperger’s and is on the autism spectrum. We are happy that the disability never slowed this creative genius down.
