1. Danny Devito was the hairstylist for dead people.

Although Danny DeVito may not be a fashion icon when it comes to his hair, or lack of it, this actor actually got the job as a hairstylist. And though DeVito admits he loved the perks that came with this gig (the girls!), things got a bit creepy when he first started selling dead people’s hair at a mortuary – even though he still worked on women.


2. Hugh Jackman worked as a party clown and a p.e. teacher.

Hugh Jackman wasn’t always the leading man that he is considered today. In fact, this Wolverine actor had quite a few weird jobs before he made it big. He worked as an attendant at the gas station, became a clown at parties, and then even worked as a P.E. teacher!

Whoopi Goldberg was actually a trained beautician prior to becoming such a huge star in the comedy world and even winning an Oscar. In her early days, things weren’t as smooth for her, and she even took the job of a makeup artist at a local mortuary. The boss acclimated Goldberg to her new job by slowly opening a corpse drawer from where he was hiding, and then waving to her! That sure sounds like a good ground for a potential lawsuit right there.
