Ah, the rich and the famous: They seem to have it all and then some. While some were born more lucky than others, sometimes, even the biggest names in Hollywood had to work from a very young age to pay their way and make moves 鈥 just like us normies. From hair sweepers to telemarketers and even a 鈥減rofessional鈥 beach bum, here are some surprising jobs celebrities had before they made it big.

1. Beyonc茅: Queen Bey was destined for stardom from the start, slaying school talent shows and eventually honing her natural talents at a performing arts school. But to earn money before megastardom paid off and when Lemonade was but a glint in her eye, Beyonc茅 swept hair at her mom Tina鈥檚 salon in Texas, often singing for the customers while she worked.

2. Channing Tatum: Before he stripped in Magic Mike, Channing Tatum did the real thing for eight months when he was 19. It鈥檚 a time he now describes as 鈥渙ne complete year of down-the-rabbit-hole crazy,鈥 going on to say that he鈥檚 happy to let it stay in the past. 鈥淚 am glad I moved on. It definitely has some seedy, darker sides.鈥 Channing鈥檚 鈥渟eedier鈥 past isn鈥檛 exactly a secret, but a little lesser known is the last real job he had right before stripping 鈥 he was a perfume spritzer at a Dillard鈥檚 in Tampa. Better yet? He got fired for breaking into too many spontaneous dances behind the counter. LOL. (Photo via Stuart C. Wilson/Getty)

3. Rachel McAdams: It鈥檚 no surprise to learn that down-to-earth Rachel spent three formative years slinging burgs at a McDonald鈥檚, but she admits she wasn鈥檛 the greatest employee, telling Glamour about all her mishaps. 鈥淚 had a little bit of an OCD thing with hand washing and just didn鈥檛 have time. They were like, 鈥楬ey, the drive-through鈥檚 backing up. Stop washing your hands!鈥 I was not a great employee; I broke the orange juice machine one day.鈥 (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

4. Jennifer Aniston: Before she was the celeb the tabloids have been the most obsessed with for over a decade, Jennifer was the one you love to hate: the telemarketer. She took the job when she first moved to LA but, tells Self, lucked out with a sitcom audition within three months. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

5. Kim Kardashian: Kim made her mark as a reality TV fixture long before Keeping Up With the Kardashians when she was right by Paris Hilton鈥檚 side as her assistant in Hilton and Nicole Richie鈥檚 The Simple Life. Kim also worked as a stylist, notably for the singer Brandy 鈥 whose brother Ray J is the other person in Kim鈥檚 infamous sex tape. (Photo via Astrid Stawiarz/Getty)

6. Kanye West: On Kanye鈥檚 2004 debut album The College Dropout, he rapped all about folding khakis at The Gap on the song 鈥淪paceship.鈥 As any young retail worker can attest, the gig has its ups and downs (and this song certainly reflects the downs), but Kanye has mostly made peace with his time at the Gap, even saying he would love to be their creative director.

7. Chris Pratt: How鈥檚 this for turning your life around?! After dropping out of college, Chris sold coupons before 鈥渞etiring鈥 at 19 to live in a van in Hawaii. YEP. He now works with Anna Faris as one half of one of the world鈥檚 most adorable couples. Oh and he鈥檚 also, like, a successful actor or something. (Photo via Kevin Winter/Getty)

8. Chrissy Teigen: Talk about being at the right place at the right time: When Chrissy was 17, she was working in a surf shop on the beaches of California when a model scout plucked her from everyday life into landing top modeling gigs. She now resides comfortably as a constant source of inspiration and entertainment in our lives and hearts. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

9. Victoria Beckham: Before 鈥淶ig-a-zig-ah鈥-ing her way into our hearts with the Spice Girls, Posh tried her hand at some acting, landing her most notable role as a sperm on roller skates in a BBC show about the body. We鈥檙e just going to leave it at that. (Photo via Anthony Harvey/Getty)

10. Gwyneth Paltrow: It鈥檚 hard to picture Gwyneth鈥檚 life as anything but living in the land of Goop, the organic wonderland of gut health and $185 breakfast smoothies. But when Gwyneth was still trying to make it as an actor, she lived the clich茅 starving-artist life as a waitress in Los Angeles, where she was born and raised. (Photo via Terry Wyatt/Getty)

11. Martha Stewart: You might already know about Martha鈥檚 past life as a mega-babe model, but did you know she was also a babysitter to Yankees? Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and Gil McDougald all sought Martha鈥檚 childcare help when she was just 10 years old. She even got a very young head start on her home and lifestyle empire as the kids鈥 birthday party planner. (Photo via Denis Contreras/Getty)

12. Barack Obama: With Obama鈥檚 presidency coming to an end, we can鈥檛 help but wonder if he might fill some of his newfound spare time at Baskin-Robbins scooping ice cream like he did as a teen in Hawaii. (Photo via Brendan Smialowski/Getty)

13. Nicki Minaj: Nicki held a number of part-time jobs as a teenager, but none so memorable as her waitressing gig at Red Lobster, where she was fired for demonstrating the kind of fire we love her for today. Nicki told GQ that she once followed a couple who stole her pen into the parking lot and gave them the finger. 鈥淚t was the principle,鈥 she said. We love you, Nicki. (Photo via Neilson Barnard/Getty)

14. Jon Hamm: Making it in Hollywood doesn鈥檛 happen overnight for everyone 鈥 just ask Jon Hamm. For a while he took any odd job the industry would offer him, including dressing sets for soft-core porn films, a job he described as 鈥soul crushing.鈥 (Photo via Kevork Djansezian/Getty)

15. Annie Golden: You know her now as the nearly mute Norma on Orange Is the New Black, but in the late 鈥70s, Annie fronted a punk band called The Shirts, storming the stage of the legendary CBGB in New York. Bad. Ass. She also had a song on the soundtrack of 鈥80s John Hughes classic Sixteen Candles. (Photo via Ethan Miller/Getty)
