Now, some of them had fairly regular jobs before they made it big, but some of these celebs chose strange career paths or took roles that they really don’t seem very suited for. We mean, can you really imagine Bob Ross as a drill sergeant?! No, us neither… Here are 23 celebrities and the jobs they had before they got famous. Take a look and prepare to be surprised.
