Take a look at the stars' jobs pre-stardom - it wasn't all pretty!

We are used to seeing them getting the red carpet treatment – private jets, luxurious holidays and all the latest designer clothes, but it didn’t start out all glitz and glamour for most celebrities. Bringing hope to everyone that’s not one hundred per cent happy in their day job, Ahlan! takes a look at the jobs the A List had before they were famous...

Brad Pitt

Along with his partner Angelina Jolie, he is part of one of the world’s most talked about couples and an international film star, but before hitting the big time he supported himself dancing around in a chicken suit for a fast food restaurant called El Pollo Loco!

Halle Berry

She’s got an Academy Award, is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood and has been on countless magazine covers, but before all of the fame and recognition she worked in children’s department store Higbee’s.

Jennifer Aniston

Jen’s known for playing the struggling waitress in Friends, but it turns out she didn’t have to prepare too much for the acting role. Before becoming Miss RomCom, she worked as a telemarketer and a waitress.

P Diddy

Diddy probably hasn’t even seen a sponge in years and certainly isn’t known for his househusband skills, but before dominating the rap world he worked as an intern at Uptown Records where his jobs included washing cars and fetching coffee.

Ellen DeGeneres

Before becoming one of the best-known faces on television, Ellen worked a multitude of more menial jobs including time as a vacuum cleaner saleswoman, a TGI Friday’s waitress and an oyster shucker in New Orleans. Euuk!
