Hollywood Stars Who Refused to Quit Their Dreams

Hollywood Stars Who Refused to Quit Their Dreams
Posted on
“And if you are at home, and you’re sitting on your couch and you’re watching this right now, all I have to say is that this is hard work. I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know…it’s not about winning. But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it.”
- Lady Gaga during her 2019 Oscar acceptance speech.


Every year thousands upon thousands of Hollywood hopefuls land in LA with dreams in their heart and a whole heap of talent ready to show the world. Fuelled by a mixture of fear and excitement, the journey to stardom is by no means easy. For all of us with a dream we know that it requires laser focus and a whole heap of sacrifice. In Hollywood, where only 1% of aspiring talent actually go on to make a decent living, the hustle is real.

No matter what you are working on in life, success is hard work. Here at Sandy Swim we dig hard work, and know that you do too. We work hard to make sure beach babes worldwide get the swimsuits they dream of. We celebrate our success, your success and the success of all the women we admire.

This year we gifted the biggest Hollywood Celebrities staying at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills for the 2019 Academy Awards. Want to see the list? No worries, just keep reading to find out the starlets who will be sporting our best selling Aisha Bikini on their next vacation. In the meantime we picked the top 5 celebs we gifted who we admire the most.


Her many hits have included multiple award winning songs such as ‘Poker Face’, ‘Born this Way’, ‘Bad Romance’ and now the Oscar award winning song ‘Shallow’ but it wasn’t always gold statues and hit singles for Gaga. From the age of 14 she was hitting the pavement in NYC singing any chance she could at open mic nights and competitions. Did you know she even go-go danced in bars before she became a worldwide sensation?



From go-go dancer to go-getter. Gaga is notorious for asserting herself and knocking down doors. It’s inspiring and we love her for it!


From days down under to Days of Thunder, Nicole Kidman is the first Australian Actress to ever win the Best Actress Academy Award. Safe to say she has come a long way from her Aussie homeland. Kidman goes to great lengths for the sake of her work including emotional exhaustion and even suffering a broken rib during filming for Moulin Rouge. That’s some serious girl power!

This Aussie babe is certainly one for the history books and we can’t wait to see the Aisha bikini on her!


She stole our hearts in her Oscar winning performance in La La Land but it wasn’t always red carpets and leading roles for this Hollywood starlet. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona when Stone was 15 years old she put together a PowerPoint presentation to convince her parents to let her move to Hollywood. The presentation was appropriately titled “Project Hollywood”


Fast forward 15 years and the award winning actress has her dream career and considers Jonah Hill, Jennifer Lawrence and Brie Larson as good friends. Go Emma!


Although Brie Larson may now call Emma Stone one of her besties (perhaps we will see them rocking their Sandy Swim Aisha bikini together!), it wasn’t always smooth sailing for Larson. Frustrated with the difficulty of the film business, Brie decided to pursue other interests like photography, interior design and animal training before deciding to commit 100% to acting.


Clearly her choice to commit paid off and she is now one of Hollywood’s most bankable Oscar winning stars.


In 2006 this Indian Goddess scored number 2 on the list of ‘Top Bollywood Actresses’. Fast forward 13 years and a plethora of film credits including Baywatch, endless charitable causes, and a marriage to musician Nick Jonas, the year 2000 winner of Miss India and Miss World has come a long way from beauty pageants even making history in 2015 by becoming the first Bollywood actress to be cast in a prime-time American TV-show, Quantico.


Fun Fact: A tube of hand cream, sunglasses, perfume, wallet and a bottle of Tabasco can always be found in the handbag pf Priyanka Chopra. I wonder if the Aisha Bikini will now be added to that list?
