Jon Hamm (A Popular Pick To Play Superman) 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."

Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) was a party clown

Jackman's natural comedian tendencies would make him the perfect candidate for a party clown. At about $50 per show, he's come a long way.

"I just love making a fool out of myself," he said. "I made my living as a clown at kids' parties for about three years. I was Coco the Clown and I had no magic tricks and I remember a six-year-old standing up at a party saying 'Mummy this clown is terrible, he doesn't know any tricks' - and he was right."

Brad Pitt was a chicken mascot and a limo driver for strippers

Pitt may be one of Hollywood's leading men, but once upon a time, he was nothing more than a chicken. His first employer was El Pollo Loco (Crazy Chicken) and he had to dress as a chicken, hand out flyers, and attract customers to the restaurant.

During the same year, as he struggled to become an actor, he chauffeured strippers in a limousine. "My job was to drive them to bachelor parties and things," he told People magazine. "I'd pick them up, and at the gig I'd collect the money, play the bad Prince tapes and catch the girls' clothes."

Megan Fox was a banana mascot

One of Hollywood's vixens was once a banana. The actress/model used to wear a banana costume to attract customers to a smoothie shop in Florida.

On the Ellen DeGeneres show, she admitted that it was the only real job she had. As a joke, DeGeneres had a man dressed as a banana sneak up from behind and scare her.

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."

Christopher Walken's job is the coolest out of all of those. Even if the lion was tame, he still worked with a f##king lion, that's just awesome.
