Even our favorite celebrities were ever just regular people working to get by. They even struggled to become just big stars.
Some of the stars used to work as waitress, a cashier, or even a janitor. Some were even in the process of training to enter long-term careers, such as law and teaching, when their big break came, while others were fresh out of jail after getting caught up in crime.
