It was reported in Daily Mail newspaper, October 14, 2005, that Daniel was found sleeping in a park bench in London while he was struggling as an actor. Now after his big success no one could even think that Mr Bond was so helpless that he had to sleep on a park bench.

2. Sylvester Stallone

After seeing this name most of the “Rambo” and “Rocky” fans would get a shock that how could a rich and famous person like Sylvester be homeless. According to Total Film magazine, Sylvester said that he was broke and was basically sleeping in the port authority bus station for three weeks straight. Then he saw a wanted post in the paper about the film The Party at Kitty and studs who were paying $100 a day, he said that the offer was too good that he would do anything for it. So after working 2 days on the set he was finally able to get himself out of the bus station.

3. Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey is an actor, writer, producer and one hell of a comedian. He is my personal favourite comedian; due to his unimaginable talents he has won many hearts over the globe. But it sounds very sad to know that the famous Jim Carrey was once homeless. It was said that even his parents were so poor that they couldn’t afford a place either. While Jim was also struggling as an actor, he and his family, which includes elder brother John Carrey, elder sister Rita Carrey, and parents Percy Carrey and Kathleen Carrey were living in a tent in the backyard of the home of Jim’s elder sister Patricia Carrey who was married.

4. Halle Berry

Halle berry is an Oscar and Emmy award winning actress, and is famous for her role as Storm in X-Men trilogy. In 2007, Reader’s Digest had interviewed berry, in which she told the interviewer that after leaving home for the first time, while she was struggling as an actress she had to live in a homeless shelter. The reason was that her mother had refused to pay her anymore and had given her two choices, either to come home or find a way herself. The actress refused to go back and continued her struggle and now as we can see how successful she is. But not many can even imagine her being homeless.

5. Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin is a name known to many people. He was the person who had made people laugh their socks off for decades without uttering a single word. The reports were that Chaplin had a very sad childhood. In his early age he had felt a lot of pain as her mother had a mental breakdown because of his father’s death and they didn’t have any place to stay either. After getting famous Chaplin had made people laugh till his death. But from the inside he was still hurt. He often quoted that “I love to walk in the rain because no one could see me crying”.
