Does your favorite artist live with autism?

18 April 2019 Posted by Kenny Oliva Autism , No Comments

ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) is a complex neurobehavioral condition; in some people, it is noticeable, while in others, it is present in such a way that it can go unnoticed. Many artists today have been diagnosed with autism at some point of their lives, some of them are very important figures (perhaps even one of your favorite artists has this condition, and you have not realized it). Here we bring you some artists who have lived with autism.

Artists who have lived with autism

Michael Jackson

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was one of the most influential people that ever existed. Singer, composer, record producer, dancer, actor, and philanthropist, MJ was simply a musical genius, but what a lot of people doesn’t know is that he might have had Asperger syndrome; though is not confirmed, certainly the traits in his personality -like being withdrawn, shy, and very sensitive- seem to point that way.

Courtney Love

The charismatic Courtney Love is known for being a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and actress; according to her Wikipedia biography, at age nine, a psychologist noted that she exhibited signs of autism, something that never stopped her from doing what she loves. In the 90s, she attracted a lot of media attention consistently for its impetuous and frank personality, and though she was a controversial character, as an artist and fashion icon she was always respected.

Woody Allen

Woody Allen is a very respected figure. With a highly successful career on his back, the actor, screenwriter, writer, playwright, film director, and comedian -who is also a four times Academy Award winner- is already an icon, and though it has never been explicitly said that he is on the autism spectrum, different experts seem to agree that that’s likely the case.

Tim Burton

It may not be publicly confirmed that Tim Burton has ASD, but he has acknowledged that Edward Scissorhands, one of his most famous films, has a lot of autobiography due that it describes the isolation he suffered when he was a child; in addition, his ex-wife Helena Bonham Carter, said that she noticed signs of autism in the artist. In any case, Tim Burton is a director, producer, writer, and American cartoonist very loved by his fans and the media. The vast majority of Burton’s works have a very marked style that differentiates them from other movies, classics such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Big Fish are already cult films.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates may not be an artist exactly, but his achievements are so incredibly remarkable that it’s worth mentioning him. Is common known that Gates has always been a meticulous and methodical person, he tends to show continuous equilibrium movement when he’s concentrated; plus, he has a monotonous way of speaking and is not unusual for him to avoid eye contact. Despite all of that, he’s one of the most important figures of our time: the Microsoft co-founder is one of the richest men alive.
