Celebrities—they’re just like us! Well, minus the millions of dollars. However, in the cases of these celebs, they really are just like the rest of us in that they work a 9-5 job. Whether their retirement from acting is temporary or permanent, the actors and actresses on this list all have decided to step out of the spotlight in favor of a normal job.
Though the world of acting is very glamorous, there is no denying that there is a good deal of uncertainty (especially if you aren’t a world-renowned name like Brad Pitt or Meryl Streep). At least, with a 9 to 5, be it at McDonald’s or something more lucrative, there is a surefire paycheck coming your way every two weeks.
While the salary is far lower, the main benefit of working a normal job is that the pressures of Hollywood and the treacherous world of show business all disappear. Without further ado, here are the former celebs who now work day jobs like the rest of us.
