Many celebrities have their own from rags to riches.
It is difficult to imagine a well-known celebrity trying to survive with a minimum wage and sleeping in a car, right? However, it has happened! Let's have a look at some of the most iconic cases.
1- Daniel Craig
As a teenager, Daniel had no money at all. He decided to start from scratch in London. He began to study to become an actor while working in restaurants. His income wasn't enough to rent an apartment or pay for a room so he had to sleep in parks.
Now, as a very rich actor, he donates money to charities to help people in the same situation he was in.
2- Chris Pratt
When he was only 19, he moved to Hawaii. With no money at all in his pockets, he couldn't afford a home so he decided to live in a van. The only jobs he had during his time on the island were barely enough to buy food, as he got paid the minimum wage.
3- Jim Carrey
The probably most iconic Canadian actor of all time was not always as rich as he is now.
When Jim was just 12 years old, his father lost his job so the whole Carrey family had to move to a van.
4- Hilary Swank
The Million Dollar Baby star used to live in a car. Yes, she and her mother when the little Hilary decided to pursue her acting career, used to call home to an old card for several weeks.
The situation improved a little when a family friend, who was selling their house, let the mother and the child stay there at night.
5- Halle Berry
Before becoming the famous actress she is now, she had to live in a homeless shelter. She was only 21 and decided to move to New York to start her career.
She said: "I took my modeling money, and I thought, 'Oh, I've got some cash!' When you get to New York…three months later I was out of my cash and I called my mother and I asked her to send me some money and she said no."
