Oodles and oodles of cash are paid to the top celebrities for each movie they do. Though they are stars today, celebrities aren’t born with a silver spoon! They had earned all their fame and power from their strong determination and hard work.
Hollywood – an industry on which the Bollywood’s and the nation’s eyes are always on, give some perfect examples of common people that were in odd jobs before becoming a familiar face.
However, it wasn’t a cakewalk for any Hollywood actors to make big in their career. Superstars like Geena Davis, Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt and much more, had traveled their own share of struggle, rejections, and did different jobs to have their bread and butter. We have scoured the web looking for the bizarre stints out when they were not famous. Here take a glimpse of their real life stories:
Brad Pitt’s first stage gig wasn’t for a movie. Surprised? Instead, he was a chicken mascot for EL Pollo Loco restaurant in Hollywood. That’s true! He dresses up like a big yellow chicken and stands outside of an El Pollo Loco. He used to wander streets in his furry chicken attire and entertain people in an unimaginable heat. He then nabbed a job as a chauffeur for strippers. But later his hard work paid off and he got a new job in Dallas, which later whooped up his acting career. Now he’s one of the most adored actors with 70 titles and tons of other awards.
Christopher Walken never had a normal life. He joined a traveling circus when he was fifteen, and there he was a lion tamer. Actually, he was a lion tamer’s assistant, but he used to leap into the mouth of that big giant cat. He also had tamed one lion. Walker used to say that the lion was more like a big dog.
Gaga may be one of the Hollywood’s leading ladies, but once upon a time, she was nothing more than a burlesque dancer. She was a go-go dancer at bars before hitting millions of fans.
You won’t believe, but the Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis has played an unforgettable role in her real life. She worked with Ann Taylor clothing store where she wasn’t just selling merchandises; she displayed clothes alongside the mannequins. Yes! She was a live mannequin.
Before creating a fashion empire, Victoria worked at BBC educational show called Body Matters where she used to dress up as a sperm on the roller skates. Gosh! Unbelievable!!
So if you thought that your favorite celeb has always been living a glam-glam life, driving exotic cars, taking extravagant vacations, buying lavish clothes; THINK AGAIN!! They had found their own way to become a household name in Hollywood.
