Sidney PoitierArguably the greatest black actor of all time, Sidney Poitier has been notably absent from the public eye for years. He returned from his entertainment retirement during the 86th Academy Awards when he joined Angelina Jolie to present the award for Best Director. The audience immediately gave him a standing ovation.
Poitier may not be making movies or giving interviews anymore, but he's still active in other pursuits. He's a legal citizen of the Bahamas and has been the Bahamian ambassador to Japan since 1997. Not a bad side job for a man who's 87.
