You won’t believe what these 7 popular Hollywood actors did before making It big
As Red Hot Chilli Peppers once sang, Californication is a very real thing. Everyone in America, and all around the globe; anyone with even a little bit of acting talent in their veins wants to end up in this universe of shimmering movie stars, which is the “edge of the world”, and “all of western civilization” (sic).
But as every dreamer knows, building fantasy castles is only half the work. Realizing those fantasies needs hard work and then some more, and even the most talented can fall by the wayside in the cutthroat world that is LA. Don’t believe us? Take a look at what these now popular Hollywood actors did in their younger days before they became famous and made it big in Hollywood. This should give you an idea of how tough life here really is!
1 Steve Carell
He is everybody’s favourite funny man. The voice behind characters in such awesomely animated movies as ‘Despicable Me’ and ‘Horton Hears a Who!’ Steve Carell has made a name for himself in the industry. People still remember him as Michael Scott from his days in the NBC series ‘The Office’. It was his first brush with Hollywood fame really, but not his last.
Although, before he made headlines, Steve wasn’t entirely sure he wanted to be an actor. He almost became a lawyer in fact, but couldn’t fill out applications asking why he wanted to attend law school. He also worked at a convenience stall in a mall in Massachusetts, but he quit after a few months when his boss told him he needed to be more efficient.
