20 Famous People Who Were Once Homeless

Before they rose to fame, many of the world’s wealthiest and most recognized celebrities struggled for money.

We all know their faces from TV and Movies, sometimes we are more accustomed to hearing their voices on the radio but these stars undoubtedly are global forces with seriously impressive bank balances to back that fact up but that doesn’t always mean that they started out that way. And some weren’t just poor — they were homeless.

#1 Sylvester Stallone

Before breaking onto the Hollywood scene with the “Rocky” franchise, Sylvester Stallone was homeless and was forced to sell his dog for $50. However, a week after selling his dog, Stallone had his big break. He sold his script for “Rocky” and became financially stable again. He reportedly bought back his dog for $3,000.
