Sometimes, the nicest people make the biggest mistakes but what matters is that they make reparations and ask for forgiveness. Owning up to our mistakes can be hard sometimes and it can also lead to a great deal of pain, but honesty is better than keeping our transgressions hidden from loved ones.

Before Chuck Norris became a superstar, he was a martial arts teacher. His alcoholic father disappeared from his life after his parents got divorced and he was only 10 when they moved to California. He married his high school sweetheart Dianne Holchek in 1958. The same year he joined the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at the Osan Air Base in South Korea, which is where his love for martial arts began. The actor left his service in 1962 to work as a karate instructor, according to Biography.com.

The same year, the Missing in Action star cheated on his wife which led to a child out of wedlock, something he didn't know about until much later in life. In his biography, the actor revealed that he found out about his daughter only in 1991. He received a letter from a woman called Dina, who claimed to be his biological daughter, according to Contactmusic.
