12 Celebs You Didn't Know Worked Other Jobs After Leaving Showbiz

There are many celebrities that we have come to know throughout the years as their careers unfolded before our eyes and some have become national icons. From actors to pop stars, these celebrities were able to entertain the masses while enjoying their fame, fortune and notoriety. However, there are some celebrities who just could not hack it in Hollywood and some who pretty much lost almost everything.

There are certain reasons why these celebs are no longer in the public eye, including challenges in Hollywood, no longer being able to get booked for work, divorce, or legal troubles. Not only do these celebrities no longer work in Hollywood, they have also gone back to working regular jobs—some better than others. These jobs include teaching, farm owner, electrician, and even waiting tables. A few of the celebrities who are no longer in their prime in the entertainment industry include Frankie Muniz, Tony Danza and Taran Noah Smith, to name a few. As many people would wonder, let’s explore 12 celebrities who worked regular jobs after losing their riches and what type of jobs they’re doing.

4 Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls)

3 Kevin Jonas

2 Vanilla Ice

1 Dan Lloyd (The Shining)


Lloyd starred in the horror movie The Shining as Jack Nicholson’s son. Since he was such a young age at the time of filming, he did not realize that he was acting in a horror film. After the release of the film, he decided to further his acting career, but ultimately achieved little success and eventually left the business. After getting declined for numerous acting roles, Lloyd has worked multiple regular jobs including a pig farm and Walmart. He is now a biology teacher at a community college.
