Not every celebrity got their start waiting tables at a restaurant. Here are seven stars who worked some jobs you wouldn’t believe before they were famous.

Kevin Hart made ends meet as a shoe salesmen at the local DSW in Philly before making it big as a comedian. Now his Hollywood Walk of Fame star can be found in right in front of one. Talk about life coming full circle!

Before being signed and singing hooks at Murder Inc, Ashanti looked after the kiddies at a Daycare center. Now, that will make you say, “Oh, Baby.”

Before purring a career in stand-up comedy, Whoopi Goldberg attended cosmetology school and ended up becoming a mortuary beautician. We’re sure she saw a lot of ghosts!

Sam Jackson worked a number of odd jobs, but the one that got him was on the set of The Cosby Show working as stand-in for Bill Cosby.

Before he was a kick-ass action star, Wesley Snipes was a background dancer and was even in Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video.

Before nabbing an Oscar for MoonlightMahershala Ali was pursuing a career as a rapper and performed under the name Prince Ali … which is pretty ironic since we think he looks a lot like Future.

But the biggest surprise of them all would have to be Gabourey Sidibe‘s line of work pre-fame.  The actress worked as a phone sex operator for three years before landing a role in Precious.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
