Everyone has to start somewhere in the work force, even if it’s less than ideal, or just plain weird! You may think these Hollywood stars have it easy, but before they got famous, they took on some of the strangest jobs to pay the bills (as reported by Cracked). I didn’t even know some of these jobs were an option!
Whoopi Goldberg put her beautician’s license to good use and found a job applying makeup to corpses! This future EGOT winner saw the ad in the local paper, and my guess is that she wouldn’t have had much competition to get the job!
Before he got into comedy, Will Ferrell worked as a hotel valet by day. At one point, he accidentally tore the entire luggage rack off of a guest’s van! How? Well, the parking garage’s ceilings were too low. Somehow he wasn’t fired for this, which seems like a honest to goodness miracle.
Johnny Depp’s first job was selling ballpoint pens over the phone! According to Depp, when his boss had wandered away from the work area, Depp would whisper at the customer, ‘Listen, don’t buy these pens. I’m a thief; we’re ripping you off.’
Trying to act like he enjoyed the position would be one of the greatest acting roles of his career.
Mick Jagger worked at a mental hospital as a teen. The only job Jagger had before becoming one of the biggest rock stars in the world was as a porter, so he would be transporting patients and items around the hospital all day. Apparently the hospital used to be a legitimate asylum, so it was most definitely haunted. Jagger claims that he hooked up with many of the nurses on staff at the facility, but it’s very hard to imagine a mental hospital would get anyone in a romantic mood!
