From Struggles to Stardom: Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney, and Kevin Bacon's Remarkable Journeys
Aniston, Clooney, Bacon, and Mariah Carey's Part-Time Jobs and Big Breaks
Kevin Bacon recently opened up about his early years as a struggling actor before finding fame. During an appearance on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show,' the 65-year-old 'Footloose' star recalled sleeping on his sister's couch for four months after moving to New York City in 1976.
Bacon explained that he later began searching for his own place but only had a $150 budget to rent an apartment in Manhattan.
Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney, and Kevin Bacon have opened up about their journeys to fame. It was a challenging path with part-time jobs and various struggles.
George Clooney launched his acting career in 1982, but it would be over a decade before he landed his star-making role in the medical drama 'ER.' Though Clooney, now 62, had famous relatives, he was determined to make it on his own.
Before playing waitress Rachel Green in the mega-hit sitcom 'Friends,' Jennifer Aniston worked as a real-life waitress for years in New York City. Despite being discouraged by her actor parents, she pursued her passion and eventually found success.
Mariah Carey overcame poverty and early career struggles before becoming one of the world's bestselling singers. She worked multiple jobs to support herself while pursuing her dream, and her big break came after she landed a gig singing backup vocals for singer Brenda K. Starr.
