They may be born actors, but these people weren't born actors. And just like the regular non-famous humans they once were, they actually had to work regular, non-famous jobs at some point. Some of them are actually pretty interesting. Others are Sylvester Stallone.

1. Patrick Dempsey, champion juggler.

In his youth, Patrick Dempsey was a competitive juggler. In an interview with Forbes, he explains that as a kid he wanted to ski, so he learned how to ride a unicycle for balance. Then one day during some free time, a teacher at school taught him how to juggle. A vaudeville scout in town saw him riding a unicycle and juggling, and... now he's a famous actor.

In the video below, 18-year-old Dempsey juggles and also dances in a baggy eighties outfit that must be seen to be believed. Too bad McDreamy didn't get to juggle any scalpels or bones on Grey's Anatomy.
