Have you ever wondered if celebrities had a past career before everyone knew their name? Well, you are right! This article is going to feature five famous individuals who you probably did not know used to be models!
You know Dakota Johnson as an actress. She has played in films such as Crazy In Alabama, Fifty Shades of Grey and Chloe and Theo. She was also Miss Golden Globe 2006. But, did you know that Miss Dakota Johnson also signed with IMG modeling agency in her early years of her career and still occasionally does work with the company? Many people underestimate her due to her simple (but still pretty) appearance. However, considering the moves that she has been making she is a force to be reckoned with.
MARY KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN
These terrific twin sisters have been around since the 90s! You remember them from TV shows such as Ful House and So Little Time or movies such as Passport to Paris and When In Rome. They dominated the child-teen acting scene for many years and have due credit for that. Yet, some people did not know that these two served as fashion models in their teens and early twenties. When the pair decided to venture into fashion and design, they modeled a lot of their own work and as a result they were able to book gigs with other designers such as Badgley Mischka.
Charlies Angels, In Her Shoes, The Other Woman, My Sister’s Keeper and Annie are just some of the films that bombshell actress Cameron Diaz has starred in. We all love her for her great acting skills and those bullet blue eyes with killer smile. That’s why it isn’t surprising that she used to model in her teen years. Before her rise fame as a movie star, she modeled for Elite Model Management and Seventeen!
The ever so hilarious Ashton Kutcher. We recognize him from being the comical lead in TV shows such as That 70’s Show and Punk’d. His film list includes movies such as Guess Who, Just Married and What Happens In Vegas. But, his resume stretches beyond the silver screen. In his teen years, Ashton Kutcher was a fashion model for names such as Next Modeling Agency and Calvin Klein!
Marky Mark has moved the industry with his good vibrations as both a musician and an actor! Some of his greatest hits are “Good Vibrations” and “Wild Side” which both went gold. Some of his most known films are Ted, Daddy’s Home and The Perfect Storm! Besides his talents, Mr. Wahlberg is certainly good looking which likely played a huge part in his young adult modeling career . He landed ads for Vanity Fair and Calvin Klein!
