1. Johnny Depp
Depp briefly worked for a call center selling ballpoint pens in bulk! It wasn’t until fellow actor Nicolas Cage stepped and convinced his friend to start auditioning that his career really took off!
2. Julia Roberts
She worked as an ice cream scooper at Baskin Robbins! And she’s not alone! Apparently, President Obama used to work there, too!
She worked as a cashier for Dunkin’ Donuts. She claims to have been fired for “squirting jelly all over the customers.” You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if that were 100% true!
4. Morgan Freeman
This acting legend is even more so now that we know about his life before acting! He served several years in the Air Force with dreams of becoming a fighter pilot. As soon as he was in the air, he realized that it wasn’t what he wanted to do at all! Thank goodness for that!
5. Channing Tatum
This guy played a stripper in Magic Mike, but it turns out that he had some previous experience in that area! He was a stripper for 8 months when he was 19! I’m not surprised one bit.
6. Kanye West
Can you imagine this musical star working retail? Well, he did! West worked as a sales assistant at the GAP before making it big and gaining global recognition! Good thing he made it big – this guy never smiles!
7. Jennifer Hudson
She came from the most humble beginnings…food service! Hudson worked at her local Burger King as a teenager. You’ve got to start somewhere!
8. Jennifer Aniston
She wanted to pursue acting and moved out on her own to start chasing her dreams! She took a job as a telemarketer to pay the bills…but only worked a few weeks before landing a role in a sitcom! How is THAT for incredible luck?
9. Amy Adams
She worked at Hooters before making it big! No judgment here! The bills won’t pay themselves!
10. George Clooney
This Hollywood superstar sold insurance…by walking door-to-door! I wonder if anyone remembers him knocking on their front door…
