After spending all of their savings, they are broke and often head home, with their shattered dreams and ego broken.
But even for those who have found riches beyond their wildest dreams, the journey getting there was tough –brutally, so, in some cases. Before the glitz, the glamour, some celebrities were forced to live in their cars, unable to afford rent, while they pursued fame and fortune.
Some like Chris Pratt chose to live in his pickup while seeking acting work whereas others were forced into the situation. For instance, Jim Carrey, along with other members of his family were all forced to work janitorial jobs while living in a Volkswagen camper. Others were escaping an abusive childhood, like Lil Kim.
Thankfully, for these 12 stars, their story had a fairy tale ending. These are 12 Stars Who Slept In Their Cars Before Becoming Famous.
12. Dr. Phil
He’s a man who needs no introduction and rakes in a cool $70 million a year. That a lot of money for TV shrink. But as a teenager, Dr. Phil lived out of a car with his father. “I was homeless living in a car with my dad,” McGraw reportedly told the Globe in 2009. “We eventually got a room at the downtown YMCA for five bucks a week.” He made his name when he began appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show, giving advice to those who needed it.
How things have changed: in 2010, he splashed out $30 million for a Beverly Hills mansion.
