Sean Connery

Sean Connery is probably best known for portraying James Bond seven times, setting the bar very high for those who would follow. He also showed his versatility with movies such as Highlander and The Untouchables, for which he won an Oscar. But Connery's first job was as a milkman in his native Scotland. After a stint in the Royal Navy, he took on numerous jobs in the late 1940s and early 1950s, including lifeguard, ditch digger, and artist's model. In 1953, he even competed in the Mr. Universe contest, placing third in the tall man's division.
