5 Celebs That Experienced A Tough Bout Of Homelessness

Posted on

There are few things everyone needs in order to have a normal life. Having a roof over your head is easily one of them. Some of your favorite celebrities have gone through the struggle of being homeless. Luckily, these five stars made it through some insane times on the street.

1. David Letterman

Comedy is hard, and David Letterman knows all too well. During his early years in stand up, the Indianapolis native lived out of his truck for a bit. While he became an icon in late-night television, Letterman never forgot the struggle. He still owns the same truck as a reminder.

2. Chris Pratt

Before being a box office hero, Chris Pratt was living out of his van in Hawaii. Luckily, a casting opportunity in Cursed Part 3 kickstarted his career. On his Facebook page, he shared a photo of him standing next to the van with the film script. “This is the van I lived in!!! In my hand is the script for the movie that got me out of Maui,” he said.

3. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs faced struggles just like many in college. While attending Reed College, the Apple co-founder had several dilemmas on his plate. Aside from sleeping on his friends’ floor, he had to save up for food. “I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple,” he said at the 2005 commencement address at Stanford University.
