I Did Not Make It Up.
Before he became an actor, writer and director, 19-year old
Orson Welles was a mime who worked the Champs-Élysées for tips.

pour himself a glass, sniff it, swirl it and sip it, then sit down at an
imaginary table where he toasted his audience with the wine glass
– looking each of them directly in the eye – before spilling the
wine on himself, tumbling out of the imaginary chair and
knocking over the imaginary table in his attempt to
catch the imaginary glass before it hit the ground.
