I bet you didn't know that some of these people started from pure poverty to become rich and famous.

You can view the slide show HERE

Here is a sample...


Jim Carrey once lived out of a VW camper van and in a tent on his sister's front lawn. cinemafestival / Shutterstock.com Carrey said it was during these tough financial times growing up when he developed a sense of humor.

Yahoo! reported that the comedian dropped out of high school and lived in a VW bus with his family parked in different places throughout Canada. They eventually moved into a tent on his older sister's lawn and parked the van in the driveway.

And rather annoyingly, the 16th slideshow is just advertising for more pageclicks, which of course you dont know until they've wasted your time going to it.

OK, so after taking a dump on two of my threads I get it, you don't like slide shows. I have a simple solution for you. Just move on and ignore them before your anger issues give you a heart attack.

Hey. thanks for the thread OP. I checked out the slideshow (
) and had no idea Charlie Chaplin had been flat broke and part of the street life in London at one time. (#15 for anyone checking) I have to say in all seriousness, it adds a little now to hearing that speech of his. He did seem to put real passion behind it. Now maybe that explains a bit more why and how.
