No, seriously! The notorious Mr. Clooney really used to sell shoes – and not the Michael Jordan kind of selling, but more like the Al Bundy kind of selling.
The 53 year old actor has not one, but two Academy Awards and a number of other awards and nominations to his name. When he was only 18 years old, however, he didn’t have a super successful acting career with more than 70 titles in his filmography. The 18 year old Clooney used to work as a shoe salesman somewhere in Cincinnati, Ohio. He described his job as “terrible”, since most of his clients were around the age of 70-75. The female clients often had troubled feet and he had to assist them in a variety of ways. He was shocked and terrified by his job position and the daily tasks that came with it, but he managed to survive the position of a shoe salesman.
There are two projects coming to the big screen in 2015 featuring Clooney – Tomorrowland and Money Monster.
