Have you once thought that your favorite celebrity, with their deluxe houses and lifestyles, would be a celebrity forever? After all, it’s no regular job, so it must take a more than the average person to attain a star status. Just picture it: The bright lights, the red carpet, that perfect walk, that perfect smile, camera flashbulbs going, the crowd of fans pressing in, all that money spent, earnings in the millions, designer clothes, the copious display of bling – the big life! It doesn’t compare to your regular job and your regular life, right? Well, sometimes even celebs fall to ground level and *gasp* do regular jobs. Here are some who did.
Peter Ostrum – Veterinarian
Peter Ostrum was a talented new actor when he played Charlie Bucket in the 1971 version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. When filming was completed, he was offered a three-year movie deal but opted not to sign the contracts. He instead decided to follow through on his love for animals and pursued a career in veterinary medicine. Charlie Bucket may have won his Golden Ticket to the chocolate factory, but Peter Ostrum put that gold into being a vet.
