13 Celebs With The Strangest Past Jobs



1. Robert Pattinson

He may have made females swoon the world over playing the dark, mysterious and brooding Edward Cullen in all of the Twilight movies, but this wasn’t his first career choice. He actually started modelling at the ripe old age of 12, but his career was cut short 4 years later when he, in his own words, “stopped looking like a girl and started to look like a boy”.

2. Gordon Ramsay

Gordon didn’t start out with aspirations of swearing at people in the kitchen; his early career choice was to be a footballer. Unfortunately, despite plenty of talent and enthusiasm, early teenage injuries soon cut the dream short and he retrained in hotel management.

3. Lord Sugar

Lord Sugar is undoubtedly one of the richest, most successful businessmen in the world today after founding his hugely successful Amstrad Corporation more than forty years ago. Earlier employment, however, includes selling car aerials in car boot sales and becoming a statistician for the civil service. I wonder if they told him “you’re fired”.

4. Rod Stewart

The timeless singer with the raspy voice had a selection of jobs before striking it rich in the music industry. He was born into a working class family and although he loved (and still loves) football, one of his early jobs was working as a grave digger.
