Odd Jobs Celebrities Had Before They Were Famous

Mark W

The "New York Post" has compiled a list of jobs that celebrities supposedly had before they were famous.

Some of them are fairly well known in pop culture, like that ANGELINA JOLIE working as a funeral director. And some of them aren't 100% accurate . . . like the fact that Angelina Jolie DIDN'T actually work as a funeral director, she just SAID that was one of her backup plans if the acting thing didn't work out.

So, take these for what they are. Here are 25 highlights. . .

1. Wyclef Jean was a gypsy cab driver. Kids, that's like an old-school Uber.

2. Nicole Kidman was a massage therapist in Australia.

3. Jennifer Aniston was a bike messenger and a waitress.

4. Julia Roberts was a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream scooper.

5. Beyoncé used to sweep up hair at her mother's salon.

6. Demi Moore was a debt collector.

9. Gwen Stefani mopped floors at a Dairy Queen in Southern California.
