From Lady Gaga To Chris Pratt: 8 Celebs Who Have A Seriously Sexy Past As A Stripper
We could not be less coordinated...
Most of the most rich and famous faces in Hollywood weren’t born onto a red-carpet, delivered by a glam squad and holding wads of cash in their tiny fist. Sure the occasional famous legacy emerges from their Beverly Hills life but most often than not, celeb had to fight tooth and nail to get to where they were.
From escorts to glamour models, a bunch of the most famous faces paid their way with some seriously sexy jobs before hitting it big. And it turns out exotic dancing is as popular a choice as Megan on Love Island....
BUT FIRST, THESE CELEB BELFIES WILL GET YOU A BIT HOT UNDER THE COLLAR...
1. Chris Pratt
The Jurassic Park star dabbled in stripping before he headed for acting. He told Buzzfeed: "I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, 'I may as well get paid'. I did go one time and audition on a stage for a club, but I don't think I got the job. I don't think I'm a very good dancer."
2. Lady Gaga
Gaga, being the boss she is, worked out how to make that cash dollar when she was in need. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live: "I made more money stripping than waitressing. I didn't show too much — I was a burlesque dancer. Because my family's European, for me it wasn't that weird and I didn't do anything super seedy — although my dad didn't think so."
3. Azealia Banks
The super outspoken rapper was very honest about the love she has for her stripper past when she told The Telegraph: "It’s super-athletic and it’s sexy as hell. I still go to strip clubs, and I follow a lot of strippers on Instagram. I like the nightlife, the drinking, the partying, the attitudes, the clothes – it’s cool.”
4. Blac Chyna
When a fan asked the model, and ex of Rob Kardashian, what she would be doing if she wasn’t famous she replied: “I would probably be still in the strip club. I'm just keeping it real. I can't do nothing else."
5. Amber Rose
Khloe Kardashian famously called her out for being a ‘stripper’ during a Twitter war but Amber couldn’t be more proud of her past. She told Cosmopolitan: "That was the best time of my life! Oh my god, I had so much fun. I really did. All the girls were really cool. The guys weren’t allowed to touch you. I was never sexually assaulted or [anything]. I was young, beautiful, I was onstage, I wasn’t really ashamed of my body. I made lifelong friends."
6. Channing Tatum
He may have helped create, maybe the best movie of all time, Magic Mike and a live show in Las Vegas and London but Chan doesn’t have fond memories of his dancing past at all. He told PEOPLE: "I don’t miss anything about stripping. I stripped in Tampa [Florida] for like 25 girls, at best. It wasn’t glamorous whatsoever, so there’s nothing that I miss about stripping.”
7. Farrah Abraham
When reports surfaced in 2017 that Teen Mom star Farrah was stripping at a club in Texas, she quickly insisted she was doing it for ‘research’. She told E!: "I'm doing research. A friend of mine works there and I'm researching. I've been trying out all the roles that make up a gentleman's club, including cocktailing and dancing. There's management and there's cooking too. It's job shadowing that I hope pays off. In the same way Jennifer Aniston researched her role as a stripper, that's what I'm doing. It's how I get the information to write my books and do my movies. Unfortunately, I'm not free to talk about what those future projects may be. But I'm interested in hearing all the women's stories. And while I'm doing it, I'm getting paid. I'm getting paid to play a role and get informed."
8. Megan Barton Hanson
Fans of Love Island have been rocked by Megan’s actions in the villa but they were also shocked at her sexy past. She told fellow Islander Alex George that she had been an exotic dancer before the show. She revealed: “Well I was a legal PA travelling for like three years, making no money and travelling back and forth into London,. Literally, I was like, I can't do this anymore. So on the side I started dancing and then I realised I was earning the same money that I would earn in a month in like two days."
And now, there celebs got SUPER naked on social media and we're here for it...
