Would You Believe These Celebrities Were Janitors at One Point In Life?

Celebrities First Jobs Janitors

How many of you remember your very first job? It might seem like light years ago, but we all started somewhere in order to start earning some cash. Perhaps some of our journeys started out one way, and ended up in a completely different field later in life.

Believe it or not, the drastic switch of professions has even happened to celebrities. But it might shock you to learn what celebrities’ first jobs consisted of before their Hollywood days. Surprisingly, a handful of them did janitorial work! Check out the first jobs of celebrities making the list below.

Jennifer Aniston:  Before she was known as Rachel Green on the popular television series Friends, Aniston was doing something her character certainly wouldn’t have approved. “I made my allowance as a kid cleaning toilets—I’m actually pretty good at it,” she told Parade magazine.

Stephen King: The famous author had no idea what was ahead in life when he was working as a high school janitor in his early days. While he cleaned, he often had story ideas pop into his head, which ultimately led to some of his most wildly popular books.

Jim Carrey: He’s a natural on screen today, but before Carrey got his big break in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the actor was busy cleaning floors at a tire factory. He was only 15 years old when he picked up the mop to help his family after his father was laid off.

Ashton Kutcher: “When I was growing up, we didn’t have a lot,” Kutcher said during a speech in front of an Iowa audience. So getting to college was a huge accomplishment for him. However, he still needed to support himself during those years. He decided to take up a job at PepsiCo/Quaker Oats factory, where he’d spend most nights sweeping Cheerios off the floor.

Jon Bon Jovi: His rocker days didn’t happen overnight. In fact, Bon Jovi used to make ends meet working as a Christmas decoration maker—later transitioning into a janitorial role. It wouldn’t be long though before the music world discovered him.
