15 Celebrities Whose First Jobs Will Give All Graduates Hope
Are your graduate job prospects not quite what you were hoping for? Have no fear because here are a few celebrities who prove that the road you start on doesn’t have to be the same one you end on.
1. Barack Obama
Worked in Baskin Robbins (aka Millie’s Cookies) before, you know, becoming President of the United States.
2. Brad Pitt
Allegedly danced in a chicken suit for a restaurant called ‘El Pollo Loco’.
3. Whoopie Goldberg
Worked as a Mortuary Beautician in preparation for open caskets (yes, this really is a job).
4. Johnny Depp
Sold pens over the phone. Although it’s probably harder to believe that anyone ever purchased stationary in this way.
5. Halle Berry
Used to compete in beauty pageants. If you’ve ever seen Miss Congeniality you’ll know those things can get rough.
6. Sandra Bullock
Speaking of Miss Congeniality, Sandra Bullock, like many others, started off waitressing and bartending. A job’s a job.
7. Kanye West
Worked as a sales assistant at GAP before doing all those dope things.
8. Adrien Brody
Before winning an Oscar (no big deal), he used to make a pretty penny as a magician.
9. Victoria Beckham
Landed a part in a sex education show in which she had to wear a sperm costume and roller skates.
10. Rachel McAdams
Worked at McDonald’s for 3 years, and things worked out pretty well for her.
11. Jon Bon Jovi
Worked as a Christmas decoration maker. This sounds kind of ideal, though.
12. Demi Moore
Used to be a debt collector before she found fame as an actress.
13. Eva Mendes
Started off selling hotdogs on a stick in a shopping mall.
14. Danny DeVito
Used to be a hairdresser. Can you believe it?
15. Bryan Cranston
Long before his role as meth overlord Walter White in Breaking Bad, he made his money with a paper round.
There is hope for us all. 🙌
