What Celebrities Did Before They Became Famous

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Before making names for themselves in the public spotlight, most celebrities held simple, ordinary jobs. Just like the rest of us, they put in their dues working long hours, grueling work, and dealing with bad managers. Check out what our favorite celebrities were up to before they joined Hollywood’s elite. 


Rachel McAdams made orange juice at McDonald’s.

Among other responsibilities, McAdams was an employee at the fast-food chain for nearly three years. She reportedly broke said orange juice machine while on the job.



Megan Fox was bananas about smoothies.

The actress was working at a smoothie shop in Florida prior to her acting career. Although, dressing up as a banana and acting like you want to sell smoothies was probably some good practice.


Meghan Markle wrote calligraphy on wedding invitations.

The soon-to-be royal had a variety of jobs before landing herself a position in the spotlight. Her favorite of her past professions? Wedding invitation calligraphy.



Johnny Depp sold ballpoint pens.

Before making it in Hollywood, the avant-garde actor spent his days as a telemarketer selling a product everyone needs: ballpoint pens.


Amy Adams took orders at Hooters.

The red-headed bombshell probably made a nice amount of tips working at the appropriately named restaurant. She didn’t last long as a waitress before making it in Hollywood, though.



Patrick Dempsey was a world champion juggler.



In the early 1980s, Dempsey came in second place in the Junior Division of the International Jugglers Competition (which is a thing that exists, by the way).


Jon Hamm designed sets for porn films.

Allegedly he only worked on ‘soft-core’ films, and was responsible for designing basic sets for the… erm… actors and actresses.
