What Jobs Would Celebrities Have If They Weren’t Famous?

Harrison Ford

Most aspiring actors never get more than a few bit parts or roles as extras, which is exactly how Harrison Ford’s career started. He started to get tired of those small roles and began work as a professional carpenter instead. He was hired by many Hollywood stars for construction projects, including George Lucas, who eventually rewarded him with the role of Han Solo.


Ken Jeong

You probably thought that Ken Jeong is nothing more than that funny guy from “The Hangover” and “Community,” but there’s a big brain behind the humor. The truth is that he already completed medical school at the University of North Carolina in 1995 and was even working in a residency program when his comedy talent was discovered. If things worked out differently, you could have been treated in the hospital by Dr. Jeong!


Danny DeVito

Danny DeVito’s original career aspiration is actually quite ironic. Despite his looks, DeVito is actually an experienced hair stylist thanks to the time he worked for his sister’s beauty parlor. It’s almost disappointing that he made it big, because it would be hilarious to watch him cut someone’s hair.


Steve Buscemi

To most people, Steve Buscemi is just “that actor with a funny voice and a weird face,” but secretly this guy has the spirit of a hero. Buscemi became a New York firefighter in 1980 and served on a fire engine for four years. He only left the position thanks to his newfound career in acting. He actually returned to help with search and rescue after the September 11 attacks in 2001 and after Hurricane Sandy in 2013.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie revealed that her original career aspiration was to become a funeral director. She decided on this normally undesirable job after seeing how poorly her grandfather’s funeral was handled. She actually completed a mail-order degree, but eventually chose to pursue acting instead.


Emma Stone

Popular Hollywood starlet Emma Stone always dreamed of acting, and now that she’s a star she’s already taken an interest in one of her favorite hobbies. Emma loves to create tasty treats in the kitchen and is seriously exploring a career as a baker.


Tom Cruise

Famed actor and Scientologist Tom Cruise wasn’t always the worshiping aliens, but he has always been very religious. When he was younger, he applied and was barely accepted into a seminary school with the goal of becoming a Catholic priest. During his time at St. Francis, his talent for acting emerged and he was eventually kicked out for stealing and drinking alcohol.


Patrick Dempsey

Actor Patrick Dempsey might be best known for his role in “Grey’s Anatomy,” but his true passion is racing. Thanks to his success in TV and film, he’s finally living out his dream and even formed his own racing team. He has competed in various pro-am events, including 24-hour LeMans races.

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is one of the greatest tennis players of all time, but she actually became a certified nail technician in 2010. She has always been stylish and loved to get her nails done, so she decided it would be a fun thing to learn. She has since launched her own line of nail polish colors.


David Letterman

Even though it seems like he’s been around forever, David Letterman wasn’t always a late night talk show host. Before Letterman appeared on TV and before he starting writing comedy, he was a weatherman! His hilarious weather forecasts often got him in trouble, such as the time that he claimed the border between Ohio and Indiana had been erased.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher might play the most intelligent movie roles, but he’s secretly a really smart guy. Kutcher was a biochemical engineering student at the University of Iowa before dropping out to pursue modeling and acting. Even though he may not have earned a college degree, things sure worked out for him.


Sofia Vergara

Can you imagine if Sofia Vergara was your dentist? Before becoming discovered and appearing in that famous Pepsi commercial, Sofia was attending pre-dentistry school in Columbia. She was actually only a year away from attaining an undergraduate degree when she dropped out to pursue modeling and acting.


Ryan Reynolds

Most people know that Ryan Reynolds is Canadian, but most people don’t know that he planned to become a Mountie! He planned to follow his father’s footsteps and become a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, because he used to be embarrased about his passion for acting.
