George Clooney

Before the "Ocean's Eleven" star found success in movies, he took up several odd jobs such as selling insurance and cutting tobacco. Recalling his days of working as a door-to-door insurance salesman on "Larry King Live" in 2006, Clooney said, "I was a horrible insurance salesman. I'll tell you why. The selling part I could do but then they wanted you to always tack on a little something extra. You know we'd take it from, you know, we'd take it from a whole life insurance to term life insurance and put some money away in an annuity for them or in an IRA but maybe you could use a little other insurance as well... And I couldn't because you felt like you were pulling their leg then."
