Chris Hemsworth
This Australian actor who looks no less than a demi-god in real life also did a lot of odd jobs in Australia before moving to Los Angeles. One of his most interesting jobs was to clean, assemble and repair breast pumps that were rented to pharmacies by a home-ware company called Fisher and Parker.

The ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ singer, before becoming famous, worked as a showgirl in France. She also used to work at a Dunkin' Donuts shop in Times Square, New York.

Channing Tatum
What comes to your mind when you hear the name Chan Crawford? Nope, it’s not Cindy Crawford’s kid’s name. This was Channing Tatum’s stage name from his stripping days.

Rachel McAdams
After watching Mean Girls, can you imagine Rachel playing the role of a girl-next-door? Now, try imagining her working in a McDonald’s, taking your order for a happy meal. Hard to imagine? Well, believe it because she actually worked at a McDonald’s for three years while she was on a break from school.

Kanye West
The king of controversy and Kim Kardashian’s better half, once upon a time worked in a GAP store. Yeezus!

During the late 70s, when Jim Carrey was yet to hit stardom, he worked as a janitor at a factory to provide for his family. He later picked up on some stand-up comedy gigs before venturing into movies.
