Can you imagine Brad Pitt delivering fridges or Hannah Montana scrubbing the toilets?

Let’s start with one of the sexiest Hollywood stars – Brad Pitt. We’ve all seen him in various films but few actually know what his first jobs were. He was supposed to become a journalist but he dropped out of the University of Missouri’s journalism college and decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career of an actor.
However, he didn’t become a star in one day. He used to chauffeur exotic dancers in a limo, deliver fridges and even wear a chicken suit to work for El Pollo Loco fast food chain.
“I had to drive strippers to different parties for a living,” Brad told Peoplemagazine. “My job was to pick them up, drive to bachelor parties, collect the money and catch the girls’ clothes.”

This young lady is considered to be one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood. Nicole used to work as a massage therapist at the age of 17.
