Michelle Pfeiffer said “I still think people will find out that I’m really not very talented. I’m really not very good. It’s all been a big sham.”

Nicole Kidman has said she often thinks, “They’re going to look at me to fire me.”

Don Cheadle said, “All I can see [looking at his performances in movies] is everything I’m doing wrong that is a sham and a fraud.”

“Sometimes I wake up in the morning before going off to a shoot, and I think, I can’t do this; I’m a fraud. They’re going to fire me — all these things. I’m fat; I’m ugly…”

Those admissions by Kate Winslet were made after her Academy Award nominations for Titanic (1997) and Sense and Sensibility (1995).

These kinds of impostor feelings are shared by a wide range of highly talented people.
