Have you ever had a job that you absolutely, positively hated from Day 1? A job so awful, so utterly soul-crushing, that you’d rather be unemployed than face it for one more day? Well, you’re not alone.
Although we like to think that most Hollywood stars just suddenly appeared on the big screen, they all had their fair share of less-than-glamorous jobs on the road to fame and fortune. Melissa McCarthy, who plays an underpaid, spiteful server at a fast-food restaurant in Tammy (in theatres now), refused to go back to work as an oyster-shucker after one day on the job. And before Thelma met Louise, Susan Sarandon worked at a senior’s home and—well, let’s just say she got her hands dirty, so to speak.
So, the next time you’re moping about how much your jobs sucks, just be glad you weren’t in Melissa’s or Susan’s briny and poopy shoes.
