No one ever believes that celebrities could be anything but famous, but many of them were on completely different career paths prior to their success. A common misconception is that actors, musicians, and models are practically predestined to be where they are today, but this is absolutely untrue. Check out what some of the hottest celebs around today used to do for a living before their big break. You might be surprised.

1. Channing Tatum

Women all over the world are absolutely in love with this blue-eyed Adonis, but well before movies like Magic Mike and White House Down, Channing was, of course, a stripper – but also a roofer. I’m sure it wouldn’t be so bad having him redo the shingles on your house!

He only put down the tarpaper after being scouted as a model and later an actor in small speaking roles. Apparently, he also spent time in sales and as a mortgage broker. He went to college on a complete athletic scholarship to play football, too.
