The “New York Post” has compiled a list of jobs that celebrities supposedly had before they were famous.

Some of them are fairly well known in pop culture, like that ANGELINA JOLIE working as a funeral director.  And some of them aren’t 100% accurate . . . like the fact that Angelina Jolie DIDN’T actually work as a funeral director, she just SAID that was one of her backup plans if the acting thing didn’t work out.

So, take these for what they are.  Here are 25 highlights. . .
