Catherine Zeta-Zones did what?! Yep. So did Channing Tatum. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do to get to where you want to go and be who you want to be. These celebs didn’t take any chances.
It’s not uncommon to hear about weird and somewhat disturbing jobs that actors had before they made it on to the big screen. Some are more surprising than others. For instance, I’m sure #17 didn’t bat an eyelid considering his personality, while #16 probably thought long and hard about what direction he was taking his life in…
1. Anna-Nicole Smith
Dancing under her former stage names of “Miss Nikki” and “Robin”, she decided on the name “Anna-Nicole” while working at Rick’s Cabaret in Houston, Texas, where she ended up meeting her husband.
2. Carment Electra
Before she made her debut on Baywatch, Electra worked in clubs nightly to pay her bills. She still does pole dancing performances and has made good use of her background while building her own home pole company and instructional videos.
The rapper and performer kept quiet about her past until someone leaked photos of her online as a form of blackmail. “I needed to figure out how to make money to get out of my mom’s house,” Eve told VH1. “I met cool girls who I started hanging out with who used to strip. Then I started seeing how much money they made, and I was like ‘I could try it…for like, one night.’”
4. Kendra Wilkinson
Before her life in the Playboy Mansion, Kendra made $ 500,000+ in only six months. She says she started stripping just to try it out and then realized how much money she made and left Dental Hygiene school.
You’ve seen her in things like No Reservations and Chicago, but can you picture her as an exotic dancer? See who on the next page.
