14 Different Jobs That Celebs Worked Before Making A Big Deal

A little-known fact is that very few people truly start off as famous-famous. That implies that before celebrities, well, became superstars, they were once one of us—that is, average folks who had to perform regular jobs like “working at McDonald’s,” “praying mantis exterminator,” and “armadillo killer” to pay their rent, utilities, and credit card bills.

You see, it isn’t until you secure the kinds of roles in films and TV series that the spooky movie trailer voice characterizes as “much anticipated” that Hollywood truly starts to pay big money. And until you become a music star, you can’t enjoy the luxuries of superstardom. You also cannot simply poof! Unless you find a crown-wearing boo, you will become royalty. You get the concept, I guess. Here is a list of some of your favorite actors, musicians, and royals who have had occupations that weren’t strictly red carpet related.

When the star’s history as a stripper, in which he might earn anywhere between $50 and $150 per night depending on the audience, served as a loose inspiration for Magic Mike and its follow-up, Magic Mike XXL, art imitated life. For the star, that is now pitiful.

2. Cardi B

Before she was fired for being late to work as a grocery cashier, Cardi B’s manager encouraged her to walk across the street and work at a strip club. “I earned more than a week’s salary in a single day. However, I had some embarrassment “She spoke to Complex. “I visualized my mum scoffing. Disgraceful. I needed to live, nevertheless.” She intended to stop stripping when she became 25, but by the time she was 23, she had established a following on social media, and the rest is history. Okurrr!

3. Hugh Jackman

For approximately three years, “I made my money as a clown at kids’ parties,” Jackman said to the Daily Mail. “I was Coco the Clown, and I had no magic tricks,” the six-year-old said. “Mummy, this clown is lousy, he doesn’t know any tricks,” and he was correct. At least it was comparable to a career in acting.

4. Jennifer Aniston

Pitt worked for a restaurant chain, like a lot other wannabe actors. He didn’t work in the kitchen or even behind the counter, though. No, Brad dressed as a chicken outside of an El Pollo Loco in an attempt to land his big break. What a waste to cover up that lovely face.

7. Danny DeVito

He told The Sun, “I basically had to move furniture around hot, nude individuals.” “The money was helpful even if the job wasn’t fantastic. I needed to survive because I wanted to be an actor.”

9. Megan Fox

The actor sold pens for a living and detested every minute of it. He told Interview magazine, “You offer them all these things if they purchase a lot of pens. “It was just terrible. I was overcome with remorse after selling one item to a customer, so I persuaded him not to buy it.

12. Mayim Bialik
