15 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Autistic

Daryl Hannah attends 'Mostra de Valencia' Film Festival 2011

We need to slowly realize in this country (and all over the world) that the word autism is not a dirty word. It should not be taboo, and should not be judged in any such way. Autism is simply defined as a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts. Though there are many different variations of autism and forms of autism, people need to have a wider awareness of it, and awareness of just how many people it affects. What better way to do this on this site than with a list of celebrities who are autistic? Some you may have known about, and a few may surprise you. But overall, we hope you walk away from this realizing that autistic people are no different than you or I. This list also proves it will only hold back those of us who let it. Keep in mind, in some cases here they are diagnosed, and some have diagnosed themselves or been diagnosed by very close loved ones.
