16 Celebrity Pre-Fame Jobs

Happy “Magic Mike” Day everyone! Hollywood’s most important movie since “Citizen Kane” is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today, which means thousands of women across the country will be blowing off their previously scheduled plans in order to spend some alone time with the boys at the Xquisite. And to think this movie might not have happened if Channing Tatum, the movie’s star and one of the producers, hadn’t spent his pre-fame days shaking his moneymaker on stage as an exotic dancer. “Magic Mike” was loosely based on Channing’s own experiences as an upstart on the stripping scene, which explains why he was oh so very good in all those sexy dance sequences (the Blu-Ray, BTW, has additional material that was too hot for theaters). Eventually, the ability to bump and grind scored Channing a role in “Step Up” and the rest has been history — but clearly his roots have continued to be an influence. And we’re all the better for it…

We already knew Joseph Gordon-Levitt could dance, but we had no idea he could dance like this. The actor hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and took on pal Channing Tatum’s stripper moves for his opening monologue. Way to drop it like it’s hot, Joe. Apparently, however, NBC wasn’t too thrilled with the skit, as they cut it from the full episode streaming online. No worries — we clipped it for you! Check it out above, then some GIFs of JGL bumpin’ and grindin’ after the jump…. Keep reading »
