Chelsea Handler was apparently a waitress at a Morton’s Steakhouse.

Joel McHale worked at a wine shop doing tastings.

Amy Adams worked at Hooters.

Jennifer Aniston was also one of us and her Dad was already famous, that’s cold, Pops!

Russell Crowe, Megan Fox, Mariah Carey, Kathy Bates, and Jenny McCarthy round out the list, but I’m sure there are many more!

So before anyone gets too down on themselves for still serving tables, just think about these uber successful people on your next shift and remember they have shared out pain. I am certain that my years as a server have taught me lessons no other profession could.
