He’s the real-life Magic Mike; did you know the movies were actually loosely based on his time as a stripper when he was younger? Some of his former fellow strippers have claimed that Tatum stole some of their moves for the movie, but we'd rather see him perform them any day.
Mayor of Cincinnati
Not even joking. Really. We’re sure he conjured up plenty of drama during his two-term reign over Cincinnati from 1971-1974. After that, he ran for governor, and although he lost out on that, NBC noticed him and gave him his own talk show — you know the one.
Now that's something we’d have to see to believe! Wholesome Amy Adams strutting her stuff and selling mediocre chicken wings. She aspired to be a dancer and thought (at first) there was almost no difference between that kind of attention and this, but she said, “There is a difference, and I learned it."
Teacher/Porn Set Dresser
Back before he became Don Draper, Jon Hamm taught English and designed porn sets on the side. He described his side hustle as "depressing" in an interview with Anderson Cooper.
Fun fact: Ellie Kemper was actually one of his students in an eighth-grade drama class!
Letterman’s coworkers at one of his first jobs in show business at an Indianapolis news station really missed out if they didn’t call him David Weatherman. Lettermen garnered quite a bit of attention for his unique sense of humor on-air, and the rest is history.
Nicole started working as a massage therapist at 17 to help her family pay the bills after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, her mother survived and is doing well. Also, could Nicole get any more perfect? She’s gorgeous, talented, and can give amazing massages. Keith Urban is one lucky guy!
After dropping out of high school (and before developing an interest in acting), Demi took up the tedious job of a debt collector. We’re sure that everyone who wanted nothing to do with her in those days would give anything for her to call them now over their unpaid debt.
