15 Stars Who Had To Work For A-Listers Before They Made It Big

We’ve all had that fantasy about telling our bosses to stuff it and quitting our day jobs to follow our dreams. But in Hollywood, sometimes your boss just happens to be a big star and working for them is an important step on the road to success. Maybe one day, you can cash in on the fact that you babysat one of the Jolie-Pitts or picked up Bradley Cooper’s dry cleaning.

Before they hit it big the stars on this list were workaday stiffs just like the rest of us. Okay, so some of these stars had connections and opportunities that weren’t open to the average Joe or Josephine. Maybe some of them didn’t even really need the work for, say, monetary purposes. The important thing is that these celebrities spent time working under someone else before they found success and became their own bosses.

Plus, the struggle is relative. Kim Kardashian’s early employment probably seemed really hard to her. Maybe Allison Williams is extra nice to her personal assistant because she’s been on the other side of things. Aspiring young actors take note: babysitting child stars and famous offspring is a perfectly legitimate jumping off point for a career in the entertainment industry.

Here are 15 Stars Who Had To Work For Other Stars Before They Made It.

H2N Review: Beatriz at Dinner


Donald Trump isn’t the first appalling billionaire, and he certainly won’t be the last. But what would you do if you found yourself at a dinner party honoring a man who has an awful lot in common with the hotel mogul (and some other title I can’t think of right now)? In Beatriz at Dinner, Mike White and Miguel Arteta’s latest collaboration, Beatriz (Selma Hayek) finds herself in this very position. She elects to not keep her worldview under wraps when faced with a man who is the very antithesis of all she holds dear.

Following in the footsteps of Jennifer Aniston in The Good Girl, Selma Hayek de-glams herself for the two Mikes in order to embody the character of a simple, earthy, Mexican immigrant who wants nothing more than to do her part to heal the world. She wakes up fresh-faced, empathetic eyes peering out from beneath woefully cropped bangs. She pulls on mom jeans and starts her day caring for the bevy of animals, including a goat, that she keeps as roommates. After a quick meditation session in front of an alter dedicated to family and a different goat, she loads her massage table into her relic of a Volkswagen, and heads off to a holistic cancer center where she pulls out all the naturopathic stops for struggling patients. This is the routine of a person who wants to help others, possibly at the expense of her own self-care…
