I stumbled across this information this morning, not sure how, and had to share it with you. I find some of the pre-celebrity jobs fascinating such as the coffin polishing __________ (ya’ gotta keep reading!). Do you know what a celebrity did before becoming famous? What about Prince, Kate Gosselin (yes, her), or Tom Cruise? <UPDATE: The celebrities I listed have all been listed by now.. be creative in your celebrity search! Do the research and leave the info, including a link to the source, in the comments below and I will give one random commenter a $10 Amazon.com gift certificate! Entries will be accepted until 10pm May 29th and I will announce the winner right here in this post!
Whoopi Goldberg was a bricklayer. That’s a tough job!
Russell Crowe was a waiter. I’m sure he got some great tips from the ladies.
Gwen Stefani’s previous job was as a Dairy Queen cleaner. Wacky huh?
Johnny Depp was a telemarketer! What a bummer..wasting his good looks by sitting in a cubicle bugging people on the phone.
Pink was a McDonald’s worker.
Simon Cowell worked in the post room.
Madonna worked in a doughnut factory. WHAT?
Colin Farrell was a dance teacher. Not the suspected sexy kind of dancing.. line dancing!
Barack Obama was an ice cream seller. How much more ‘all-American’ can you get?
Geri Halliwell, pre Spice Girls, was a Turkish game show hostess. Huh, can you picture that?
Brad Pitt was a chicken dancer for a Mexican restaurant. His job was to entice people to eat at the restaurant. Couldn’t he have just stood there as himself, not a chicken?
Harrison Ford was a carpenter. I can’t really vision that one.
Sean Connery was a coffin polisher. I can vision that.
Annie Lennox was a waitress at a cafe in North London.
