Guess these celebrities by their pre-fame rejections

"I'll never amount to anything?" Ha!

Even the greatest celebrities had to start somewhere. Talented people who went on to get major fame, awards, and accolades were often told that they'd never amount to anything.

But who was told not to quit their day job?

  1. "You ain't going nowhere, son. You ought to go back to driving trucks."
  2. "Can't act. Can't sing. Balding. Can dance a little."
  3. "Your Adam's apple sticks out too far, you talk too slow, and you need to get that chipped tooth fixed."
  4. "Guitar groups are on their way out. They have no future in show business."
  5. "You're the queen of B-movies."
  6. "You'd be better off as a secretary than a model."
  7. "You lack imagination and have no good ideas."
  8. "You talk funny, walk funny, and can't act."

Good job! Isn't it hard to imagine some of these stars being told they have no future?

That was tricky!

You know your celebs — and more importantly, you know that getting told you can't do it doesn't mean anything!
Missed #3.

7/8- Just chose the biggest star, or their skills.
Knew Elvis was a truck driver, for some odd reason.
