Hugh Jackman
The ‘Les Miserables’ star, 54, faced some of the toughest crowds when he made $50-a-time performing for kids at birthday parties before he hit the big time. In 2015, he said: "I was Coco the Clown and I had no magic tricks and I remember a six-year-old standing up at a party saying, 'Mummy this clown is terrible, he doesn't know any tricks' —and he was right."

Amy Adams
The ‘Arrival’ star used her movie star good looks to make money before she was famous - working as a waitress at famous restaurant chain Hooters. Speaking in 2015, the 48-year-old actress said: "It was a great job out of high school. I was a hostess at first and then I waited tables for a while and it was a great way to earn money for a car!'

Brad Pitt, 59, paid his bills by chauffeuring exotic dancers from job-to-job before his big on-screen break in iconic 1991 feminist drama movie 'Thelma and Louise', which starred Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis. Speaking to PEOPLE, he revealed: "My job was to drive them to bachelor parties and things.

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum used his past as an exotic dancer to inspire his movie 'Magic Mike'. Revealing why he took the job, he said: "I was young and dumb and stupid and wanted to make a little money. You can work 10 hours a day for minimum wage – that’s the opportunities for kids without a college education. “Get some s*** job that you’re really going to have to bust your hump for. Or you can try something else a little crazy.” (©BANG Showbiz)
