Stars who worked at Fast Food restaurants before their Hollywood career
Beginnings are tough for everyone. You want to have your own money but parents are not willing to give that to you or you finish your high school and have no idea what to do. Celebrities also face those dilemmas. Now you may just see them in glamorous outfits walking on the red carpet but indeed, a lot of many were starting their careers in fast food restaurants where they were being paid only a fraction of what they can earn now. Check out the first jobs of the most famous stars.
Chris Pratt (39)
He was working at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.
"Eighteen years ago I was waiting tables in Maui and working at a restaurant, living in a van, a director came in and was at my table and said 'Hey, you’re cute, do you act?' and I was like 'Yeah, I act, you should put me in a movie' and four days later I was in Los Angeles and I never went back"
Kate Mckinnon (34)
Before she started to be a comedian, she was scooping cones at Cold Stone Creamery.
"Now that was a fun job because the real task of the job was to steal small samples of the ice cream without people noticing"
Busy Philipps (39)
The star once worked as a hostess at California Pizza Kitchen in high school.
"It was the golden era of CPK really. And I ate free every time I worked. The servers weirdly got a discount, but they would give the host/hostess a free meal every time they worked. Maybe because we weren't getting paid much"
"My parents taught me that if I wanted something I had to work for it and earn my own money," she said.
Before she became famous, Madonna was running the cash register at Dunkin’ Donuts in Times Square.
Jennifer Hudson (36)
She was working at Burger King.
Eva Longoria (43)
"I wanted to have a Quinceañera when I was 15 and my family didn’t have the money, so I got a job at Wendy’s and paid for it myself," she confessed.
J.J. Watt (29)
He was delivering pizzas for Pizza Hut.
"It was a humbling experience, it brought me back to earth, and it was a good experience. I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn't done that"
Nick Cannon (37)
He was working at Weinerschitzel when he was 17.
"I ended up getting fired because I was playing on the intercom system at the drive-thru, telling jokes", he said.
Rachel McAdams (39)
"I had a small town life - I worked at the local McDonald’s for three years," she revealed.
