Life is good when you have an established contact with deep connections with all the right people to get you a good gig when you feel like joining the entertainment business. This is not always true and it certainly didn’t stop these celebrities who once worked at odd places doing really odd jobs before taking a shot at making it big. The journey up the ladder of success is never smooth but that didn’t dampen their spirits and nor are they ashamed to admit the things they had to do to fuel their dream of getting into the glamorous world of films and entertainment. Here are the best known celebs from Hollywood who worked regular day jobs and are now on top of the world.
