Before They Were Famous..

We all know that famous TV and movie artists had to ‘struggle’ before they became famous.

I actually did a RAMM [Random Access of My Memory 🙂 ] to find them !

Let us start with “Friends”

  1. Matt Le Blanc (Joey) starred in Jon Bon Jovi’s “Miracle“. He plays the love interest of the local Seniorita
  2. Matt Le Blanc also starred in Alanis Morissette’s “Walk Away
  3. Courtney Cox ( ) appeared in Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark“. She’s the one who comes on stage to dance with him (Yes, it was staged!)
  4. Jennifer Aniston appeared in Tom Petty’s “Walls” ..You’ll have to watch carefully..she comes up for a few seconds only..she was really struggling i guess!

Famous Movie Stars

  1. Angelina Jolie appeared in Meatloaf’s “Rock & Roll Dreams Come through
  2. Alicia Silverstone starred in Aerosmith’s “Crazy“, “Amazing” & “Cryin
  3. Johnny Depp starred in Tom Petty’s “Into the great wide open
  4. Keanu Reeves starred in Paula Abdul’s “Rush, Rush
  5. Eva Mendes starred in Pet Shop Boy’s “Se A Vida E (That’s The Way Life Is)
  6. Jennifer Connely starred in Roy Orbison’s “I drove all night
  7. Kirsten Durst appeared in Savage Garden’s “I knew I Loved you
  8. Kim Basinger appeared in Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance

One takeaway is that one of my favorite musician – Tom Petty really gave a lot of chances to struggling actors !!!!

You might argue I missed out a lot of famous actors in movie videos. Yep, there are many. But the title of my blog is “Before They Were Famous !”
