10 Celebrities Who Didn’t Care About Fame and Found "Regular" Jobs

If you still think that fame and being in the spotlight is every person’s dream, here are 10 stories that will prove you wrong.

Bright Side reveals 10 celebrities who were not attracted by numerous fans or lots of money and found different jobs.

Skandar Keynes

When you look at Keynes’s teenage photos, you start to recall Edmund Pevensie right away (from The Chronicles of Narnia). However, the actor stopped starring in movies altogether.

Skandar got a degree and now works as a parliamentary adviser.

Jeremy Renner

It might seem that the money Renner received for his role as Hawkeye in Thor and The Avengers should be enough for his entire life. But the actor himself says that he makes much more money building houses.

Jeremy buys unfinished mansions, finishes the construction, and sells them for very good money. It’s curious that Renner doesn’t live in a luxury apartment or hotel but in the houses he is working on at the moment.

Bradley Pierce

The charming boy from Jumanji got tired of acting a very long time ago. Today Pierce is a successful bartender. He set up an organization that helps people learn the art of being a bartender.

Frankie Muniz

Frankie was most famous in his youth. Even though he still got offers to star in movies as an adult, he became much more interested in sports.

Racing, to be more specific. Since 2006, Muniz has been driving a sports car and taking part in competitions.

Nikki Blonsky

The actress, famous for Ugly Betty and Hairspray, spent 10 years of her life acting. Although she had a lot of fans, she still wasn’t widely popular. So Blonsky decided not to fixate on moviemaking and became a certified hairdresser, cosmetologist, and makeup artist.

This has become Nikki’s main source of income.

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck, the man with the mustache whom we know as Detective Magnum, left the city a long time ago.

The former actor has been growing avocados on his own farm for 30 years now. He seems to be extremely satisfied with what he is doing.

Chris Owen

The actor whose face is familiar to us thanks to American Pie and Major Payne also decided not to rely just on his acting skills and changed his profession completely.

He works as a waiter in a sushi restaurant in California. Owen says, "Life isn’t always what we expect it to be."

Ariana Richards

The girl who was chosen for the role of Lex Murphy in Jurassic Park finished her career quite quickly.

She got a degree in fine arts and became a successful artist. One of her works is hanging on the wall of Steven Spielberg’s office.

Danny Lloyd

Danny Lloyd got the role of Danny Torrance in one of the greatest horror films: The Shining. The casting was very difficult, with around 5,000 kids trying out.

Despite resounding success and fame, Lloyd finished his acting career. He has been working as a biology professor in Elizabethtown College for 10 years.

Jack Gleeson

After Jack Gleeson became popular all over the world for the role of Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones, it seemed that there was a big future ahead of the actor. But Jack made a different decision.

He said that he didn’t want to be in the spotlight anymore and organized his own theatre troop that has worldwide tours.
