Celebrities were not always rich and famous, and most did something to earn a living prior to hitting the limelight. Some worked boring jobs behind an office desk or sales counter. But others had some very weird jobs before they made it big. Find out the 8 odd jobs these movie stars had before making it in Hollywood.

1. Channing Tatum – Stripper
