Whenever you see your favorite celebrities on TV or in print, it's hard to realize they were once ordinary individuals trying to make ends meet. Even the best actors, however, had to start with small jobs prior to actually making it big!

Whether it be work as a waiter, a clerk, or a janitor, or a strange career like lion taming, the possibilities are that at least one of the renowned actresses and actors you admire once had a pretty wild day job. When their time came, some had been in the course of learning for long-term vocations like law or education, and others were just out of imprisonment after getting entangled in crime.

What is the moral of the story? You might well be trapped shift work at a burger spot or digging ditches right now, but you just never know what chances await you. So keep your eyes on your Hollywood aspirations.

Celebrities! They're the same as we are! Except instead of staying stuck in jobs they loathed they managed to claw their way into the spotlight. Keep scrolling for some pretty wild examples of celebs who worked wild jobs before they made it.
