Just think, your childhood nanny could become a STAR...
Celebs may seem like they were born to be famous – can you ever remember a time when Kim Kardashian wasn’t the centre of our lives? No. But it turns out that these famous faces, before they were stars, worked for celebrities that had already made in big.

CHECK OUT THE REALITY STARS WHO DARED TO DATE A CIVILIAN...
1. Kim Kardashian: Assistant to Paris Hilton
Whereas Paris Hilton branded Kim her ‘assistant’ before Keeks hit the big time, Kim maintains that she was actually helping her organise her wardrobe, something she did for countless other celebs including Nicole Richie and Brandy. She even popped up on the Simple Life, being bossed about by the heiress. We’re guessing Paris isn’t lolling that much now.
2. Allison Williams: Assistant to Tina Fey
The Girls’ actress’s dad Brian Williams, who is a super famous NBC journalist, helped her nab the job of Tina’s PA on the 2008 film Baby Mama. OMG so jealous.
3. Jennifer Garner: Babysat for Stephen Colbert
The actress met the talk show host on the set of Spin City and he hired her and her flatmate to babysit for his kids. She joked that he didn’t pay her well.
4. Mindy Kaling: Interned for Conan O’Brien
The Mindy Project star interned for the Conan O’Brien Show way back in the day before they made it big. Mindy maintains she was the ‘worst intern that’s every worked on the program.’ LOL.
5. Ashley Olsen: Interned for Zac Posen
Back when she was already a huge star (New York Minute/Our Lips Are Sealed/ HOLIDAY IN THE SUN? Best films ever), Ashley was completing her fashion degree at NYU where she interned for Zac Posen for college credit.
6. Mary-Kate Olsen: Interned for Annie Leibowitz
In 2005, while her twin interned for Zac Posen, MK took her love of photography and interned for one of the most famous picture-snappers in the world, Annie. The twins had worked with her before because they were on every magazine possible, so we're sure she had no probs getting that job.
7. Bethenny Frankel: Looked after Paris Hilton
The Real Housewives of New York City star was working in a restaurant in LA when she met future Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards who introduced her to her sister Kathy Hilton. Kathy gave her a job driving Nicky and Paris Hilton to school and put her in charge of being the family chef too.
8. Eric Stonestreet: A bouncer for Garth Brooks
Modern Family’s Cam worked as a body guard for country singer Garth Brooked back in 1995 during his NYC concerts. Whaaaaaa?
9. Katie Lowes: Connie Britton’s nanny
Just before landing her breakthrough role in Scandal as Quinn, Katie looked after Nashville star Connie’s kids. Connie loved her so much she said: “"I wanted her to be my nanny so badly and my assistant. She's just such a phenomenal human and I remember having those conversations. She was helping me with my son, who was then just a baby, and then she said, 'I got cast in this show called Scandal.'”
10. Jenna Dewan Tatum: Justin Timberlake’s back-up dancer
As we all learned from Britney Ever After, Jenna and Justin once dated when she met him after she got a job as his back-up dancer. WOAH.
