If you think about it, being a successful stripper is a lot like being a successful actor. You put on a costume, you get into character, and you need to be able perform in front of a crowd. With so many similarities, it led us here at TheRichest to do some sleuthing of our own, and you won't believe what we've found. As you are about to find out, some of our favorite celebrities used to work the pole, and some of them you definitely did not see coming (though you may have wished to see them in action!).
Let's get something clear, there is nothing wrong with being a stripper. Although it is a controversial career path, everyone has a different opinion on the field. Some believe stripping to be a form a self-expression and empowerment, while others believe it to be degrading.
Regardless of your stance on the issue, stripping is something many people have dabbled in and as many of these stars pointed out, that is nothing to be ashamed of. I hope you enjoy checking out these 10 celebrities who before finding fame, had been no stranger to stripping.
10 Kendra Wilkinson
9 Channing Tatum
8 Carmen Electra
7 Amber Rose
5 Nene Leakes
4 Chris Pratt
3 Lady Gaga
2 Brad Pitt
1 Catherine Zeta-Jones
Catherine Zeta-Jones seems like one of the most stuck up and unapproachable people in show business. However, after learning that she used to be a stripper, it made us feel like she was more human. Zeta-Jones, who has always been into her looks, had one goal in mind when she started stripping: to make enough money to get herself a nose job. She of course did, and her face along with her talent is what lead her to extreme fame and fortune. Her success as an actress, the shocking nature of the fact, and the overall image of her at a strip club helped make her an easy choice for #1!
