First jobs are anything but glamorous, and certain A-listers can attest to this.
We've scoured the web looking for the weirdest stints out there, and these celebrities have certainly paid there dues. Megan Fox used to dress up as a banana; Whoopi Goldberg was a phone sex operator; and Brad Pitt was a limo driver for strippers.
The good news is, we know they all made it to stardom. So, no need to feel too sorry for them.
Rod Stewart was a gravedigger
Before Stewart charmed audiences with his British accent, he worked as a gravedigger at Highgate Cemetery in London during his teens.
According to "Rod Stewart: The New Biography," he hoped working at the cemetery would rationalize his fear of dying: "He had suffered from nightmares about death from a very early age and so thought, as an impressionable teenager, that perhaps getting as close as he could to death, actually digging out holes to be filled by real bodies, he could rid himself of that fear."

Christopher Walken was a lion tamer
At the age of fifteen, Walken joined a traveling circus and was briefly a lion tamer. He's modest about his lion-taming days; he claims Sheba, the lion, was very old and "really more like a dog."
Sylvester Stallone was a lion cage cleaner
We're not sure who had it worse: Walken, who tamed a lazy lion, or Stallone, who cleaned up after them. While waiting for his acting career to take off, the Rambo actor cleaned up lion cages at the Central Park Zoo.

Jon Hamm was a set dresser for porn films
Hamm's early off-screen job wasn't as glamorous as the 1960s "Mad Men" days. Hamm, who stresses that the porn he designed sets for was strictly soft-core, said it was an easy way to earn a few hundred a day.
"Essentially, I had to move furniture around sweaty, naked people. It wasn't a great job but the money was useful," he said. "I had to get by—I wanted to be an actor."
Whoopie Goldberg was a mortuary beautician and phone sex operator
The 56-year old comedian and actress took a job as a mortuary beautician after she became a licensed beautician. Her boss played a welcoming prank on her by pretending to be dead and sitting upright to wave at her. “That’s the worst thing that could ever happen to you here, and it won’t," he told her. "So there’s nothing to be scared of."
During a segment of "The View" she also mentioned briefly working as a phone sex operator. "When I was younger, the money was great," she said. "See now, people would know my voice."
Orlando Bloom was a clay trapper
Bloom's first job was a clay trapper at age 13 at a pigeon shooting range. Clay trappers load and aim clay discs used as targets for shooters.
