Some of these perfomers were homeless before becoming celebrities! Carry on reading to find out just which A-listers have truly experienced complete changes in fortune!
Hard to believe, but true! Before her big break, Hollywood beauty Halle Berry lived in a homeless shelter for some time. Her mother didn't believe that the Catwoman actress had what it took stopped supporting her as soon as she turned 21. Halle got into such a bad argument with her mother that she moved out. A mother herself now, and one of Tinseltown's favorites, she certainly doesn't need to worry about money any more.
Jim Carrey didn't have it easy as a child. His father lost his job and his mother suffered from a chronic illness and so due to a lack of money, the family had to live in a van for a short time period. Carrey did not let that stop him however, and tried his luck as a stand-up comedian when he was just seventeen. He was a huge hit! The Bruce Almighty actor is now one of Hollywood's highest-paid actors.
After Kelly Clarkson moved to Los Angeles to become a singer, her apartment burned down and she had to sleep in her car for a short while. She was forced to move back to Texas, but was not prepared to give up and so went to an "American Idol" casting. And we all know what happened next: Kelly became a worldwide sensation!
Would you have ever guessed? Before Daniel Craig became a millionaire, he was forced to spend the odd night on some of London's park benches as the handsome Bond actor couldn't afford to pay the rent for a flat in London at the beginning of his career.
Yes, it's true! Jennifer Lopez was also homeless for a while. The singer argued so heatedly with her mother that she left home. While she did not have to sleep outside, she was forced to find shelter at her then dance school. Today, J.Lo has well and truly made it and lives in a fabulous villa in Bel-Air.
Hilary Swank is one of the most dedicated actresses out there, even living in car in Los Angeles for a while with her mother so that she could audition at castings, which they would book using the nearest payphone. Hilary is now one of the most popular actresses Hollywood has to offer!
William Shatner, who found fame when he starred in the "Star Trek" TV show and movies, lived in a pickup truck for a short while. Luckily, the truck had a small stove and a toilet and he had his dog to keep him company!
Before Ed Sheeran became a global phenomenon he, too, was homeless for a while. Between 2008 and 2010 he slept wherever he could, sometimes at friends' houses and sometimes on the streets. However, the singer has now well and truly made it and is one of the most successful musicians of all time.
Sylvester Stallone was extremely poor at the beginning of his career and was even thrown out of his apartment when he was twenty-four because he could no longer afford to pay the rent.
