When a celebrity attains fame, it seems that they just got out of nowhere. But, like every profession, one would have to work their way up the ladder.
Here are some celebrities and the jobs they had before fame
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex: Much before she became a member of the British royalty by marrying Prince Harry, the former actress earned her rent money by employing her calligraphy skills. “It was because I went to an all-girls Catholic school for like six years during the time when kids actually had handwriting class. I’ve always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well. What it evolved into was my pseudo-waitressing job when I was auditioning. I didn’t wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding,” she said in an interview with Esquire in 2013.
Justin Trudeau: According to a Washington Post report,The Canadian prime minister worked as a high school teacher, snowboard instructor, nightclub bouncer and bungee jumping coach, before he entered politics. As a student at the University of British Columbia back in the ’90s, he would go to Whistler, Canada, to teach teenagers how to snowboard.
George Clooney: Before the “Ocean’s Eleven” star found success in movies, he took up several odd jobs such as selling insurance and cutting tobacco. Recalling his days of working as a door-to-door insurance salesman on “Larry King Live,” Clooney said, “I was a horrible insurance salesman. I’ll tell you why. The selling part I could do but then they wanted you to always tack on a little something extra. You know we’d take it from, you know, we’d take it from a whole life insurance to term life insurance and put some money away in an annuity for them or in an IRA but maybe you could use a little other insurance as well…And I couldn’t because you felt like you were pulling their leg then.”
