Movies, music and literature has brought fame to millions, but not all celebrities are humans. Sometimes, a tree becomes the unexpected center of attraction. Here are some real trees that have found fame through art and fiction.

Sycamore Gap

One of the most photographed spots in the entire Northumberland National Park in England is the Sycamore Gap. Here, the Hadrian Wall, that stretches from coast to coast across the width of northern Britain makes a dramatic dip between two small mounds of earth. In the dip, grows a sycamore tree. The tree was made famous after it appeared in the 1991 movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner. It has been known as The Robin Hood Tree ever since.
