Even celebrities need a break on Labor Day. These stars worked hard to get to where they are and they have the first jobs to prove it!
Here are some of the more surprising…
Barack Obama – In high school, our president used to work at Baskin-Robbins. Yes, the leader of the free world was your neighborly, resident ice cream scooper.
George Clooney – Before becoming the triple threat actor-writer-director that he is, George’s first gig was a guest-starring role as Booker Brooks on “Roseanne.”
Russell Simmons – The highly successful media mogul is no stranger to hard work nor a 9-to-5 job. Russell worked at Orange Julius in his earliest days.
Sarah Silverman – The comedian had a small role in the most unlikely of places, an episode of "Star Trek: Voyager." It also required her to do her own stunts; she had to jump out of a van and avoid a collision with a semi.
Madonna – Imagine Madonna working at a Dunkin’ Donuts…the pop icon used to work at one of its franchises, and got fired for squirting donut jelly on customers. Always the provocateur. Classic, Madonna!
Brad Pitt – Internationally recognized, Oscar-nominated actor Brad got his start in acting…as a chicken mascot at an El Pollo Loco in Los Angeles.
Gwen Stefani – Prior to reaching fame with No Doubt, Gwen used to work at a local Dairy Queen in Orange, California.
Amy Adams – The Oscar-nominated actress used to serve up hot wings at Hooters.
Sylvester Stallone – Sylvester’s first job required a lot of, uh, hard work. The actor agreed to film a 1970 p*rno, Party at Kitty and Stud’s, before making it in Hollywood.
Mila Kunis – The family drama "7th Heaven" answered Mila’s acting prayers when they cast her as a young family friend.
